Thanks David, sounds great. Did they really remaster the original tapes? Or is it a digital transfer of the cd source files? I've always believed the originals got lost.

cheers,

- Fedor

I don't know, I would imagine the latter.

Thanks David, for the info. How did you find it?

I wonder why now and in Japan, even though Glenn has not been here for three years and no tour is planned for the near future, either????

From one of the many mailing lists I subscribe too Ko. Don't think this is specific to GLENN, but more of a general re-issue targeted at the Japanese market. So there's nothing to read into it!! Although don't discount a visit to Japan in the near future

Sorry David, but do you think we'll have a Trapeze Album with lyrics in the sleeves someday? I'm waiting for those lyrics for long long long time. Since 1972 when I bought my first Trapeze Album.

Perhaps wolfysmith can borrow the lyrics from Tom or Mel sometime? Tom was going to pass them along for transcription a while back, but never got around to it unfortunately.

Or perhaps chutsler can answer as to whether this Japanese box-set contains the full set of lyrics?

David, the lyrics are indeed printed on each album's insert.....and they're mostly correct this time! I have a vinyl Japanese copy of Medusa and the lyrics are almost a laugh riot to read! It's obvious the person listening to the music and translating the lyrics was hearing something other than what most other people were hearing!

Hi Chutsler
You know the real lyrics because you speak English naturally. So, why don't you complete the lyrics of the Album You are the music.. we're just the band, in the lyrics section. Only 3 lyrics are lacking. Please, place the lyrics here.

I believe the reason that the lyrics get somewhat folded,spindled and mutilated in the translation process is because the Japanese listener is translating phonetically.....in the same fashion that Western singers learn the lyrics in order to sing them in Japanese. Or something to that effect!

English is probably the toughest language to master because the rules of pronunciation are maddening in their constant deviation from what was previously laid down. "Through" sounds different from "cough" which is different from "slough".....and the hits just keep on coming!!

OK..enough of the language lesson for tonight....Have a great week!!

Trapeze mini lp cd's + promo box

....finally... I managed to obtain the three Trapeze Japanese mini lp re-issues + promo box. These weren't easy to find.

Well done, Arjen. Those must have cost a fortune though...
I'm still hesitant buying at the price that is usually being asked for them...

Good find Arjen !! Buying those CDs individually isn't that hard, but finding them together in the box seems quite the challenge.

Glad I bought my box when it was still in print

On Ebay (where else) I found a seller who had a complete set left. He made me an offer of USD 150 including postage. Thats a fair deal considering it's rarerity. I've been told only 100 to 150 promo boxes in total were made. These 'promo' boxes are made by a Japanese company called Disk Union. It seems they have the rights to do so. When a new title is released they are all over Ebay ... but for a rather short time because when they are sold out the prices are starting to rise....fast. For instance: a promo box of Jethro Tull (without the cds) goes for + USD 300.00 .

After keeping an eye for the set on EBay for 9 months with no succes of finding one, I decided to e-mail most mini lp dealers. I found one dealer who only had the box and wanted to sell it for USD 50. The day after I found a Portugese dealer who had the whole set. The search was over
