Hi all - just wondering if anyone has the Japanese CD import in the small white box?  If so, what does it contain?

I'm wondering if it is mini versions of everything the LP has, or is anything missing?  I am particularly keen to see if it has the booklet of press clippings, and (if so) are they readable?  Many thanks if you can let me know - my Google skills on this sort of thing are abysmal.

It comes with everything that was originally in the box, just smaller.  If you can read stuff in CD booklets, you'll be able to read the press clippings.

E is for 'Ergent'.

I have the 1976 Japanese vinyl reissue that comes without the "Bagism" bag.

Thanks folks - just picked it up based on that info - quite a nice collectable even if the album will most likely drive me bats :)

Well, even more bats .....

So, I now have what looks like chocolate cake in the bag.  I have also placed the CD in its nice protective sleeve into the reproduction LP sleeve into the reproduction LP cover on the shelf next to the box so it is easier to get to if I need to scare away any unwanted visitors.

Next question for the great Googlers here - does anyone have a translation of the Japanese liner notes?  The interview transcripts and lyrics (including the ones to the bonus tracks) are all in English, which is nice, but it looks like about a page of info on the album is in Japanese only.

The cost locally was ok as well, it was A$35 which is about right given the cost in Yen on the obi.

I must say I am loving the presentation of this box - given my comments in another thread on CD packaging this one is more like it - I have been so disappointed to see "The Concert for Bangladesh" CDs with their cut down booklets compared to the old LP boxed edition.
