The Beatles: 15 "1st Japan Edition" Japan CD Wood Box CP32-5321 to CP32-5334 and CP32-5601 & CP32-5601.
Out of Print. Made in Japan.
Released in September 1988, this is the absolute first edition of The Beatles CDs released in Japan, including the so-called White Album with the indexing error. This is the pre-tax notation series. Wood box is in very good condition (for something 25 years old). All The Beatles albums (artwork of the UK releases) plus Past Masters Volume 1 and 2. English booklet is included but not shown. Very good condition overall. CDs are mint but obis are not all pristine. Some rubbing the sleeve of Sgt. Pepper. As shown in the photos, although not all individual CDs are shown and photo #1 is for reference only. Shame that only 12 photos can be shown, as this is a brilliant set!

mini-lp market has been and is being infiltrated by counterfeit mini-lp CDs
made in Russia. These fakes, especially when still sealed, are almost
impossible to tell unless one knows what the genuine Japan original looks like
or has one for comparison. Buyers at Disk Union have been fooled! The list of
musical artists that have been counterfeited includes: King Crimson (21st
Century UICE), Rainbow (POCP), Led Zeppelin (AMCY), Eric Clapton (UICY),
Genesis (VJCP 1st edition w/ Virgin logo on Obi), King Crimson (IECP), Jethro
Tull (TOCP), Deep Purple (WPCR-1563-1577), Black Sabbath (Victor), Creedence
Clearwater Revival (VICP), Jimi Hendrix (UICY), Beatles, Pink Floyd, and so on.
This list is not complete, and new albums are being counterfeited each month.
So, BUYERS BEWARE! Purchase items only from dealers who can be trusted to sell
only genuine Japan mini-lp CDs. Purchasing “Japan” mini-LP CDs from Russia and
China is risky. There are also many dealers in the USA, UK, Europe, and Canada
that are selling fakes. If the "Buy-It-Now" price of a mini-lp seems
too good to be true, then it may well be a counterfeit.
Also, a few dealers in places
such as Hong Kong, Canada, Peru, Thailand, and the USA are making bootleg
mini-LP boxes and selling them as legitimate promo box releases from Japan.
Record labels and Disk Union in Japan make the boxes as promotional items. The
record labels can make what they want regarding an artist because they own the
rights. Disk Union, a distributor, makes boxes and other promotional items by
asking for and being granted permission to use album artwork and related artist
logos. That is the difference between legitimate and non-legitimate promo
boxes. The non-legitimate boxes are made with stolen artwork, as these
bootleggers do not ask for and have not been granted permission from the record
labels or artists. Some of these bootleg boxes are homemade, some are factory
made in China, some pretend to be prototypes, some pretend to be made in Japan,
some claim to be limited, numbered editions. But how or where they are made
makes no difference to the central issue. The artwork is stolen, these sellers
are making money illegally, and buyers on eBay are being misled.
