it seems many collectors are surprised and terribly disappointed that the records were not pressed in Japan... (oh dear...) what did you expect? that after almost three decades without vinyl the pressing plants including experienced and qualified specialists will suddenly be defrosted from cold sleep?

sonymusic.co.jp stated already @ Piano & A Microphone 1983 that the release is made outside of japan and they just add a fancy japanese paper and sticker.

※輸入盤国内仕様  = Import Domestic Specifications

after all, you burned your money for the optical japan-fetish, but the sound remains on the line because the records are all cheaply pressed somewhere in Europe, in rushed mass production (quantity over quality). The "coloured vinyl" trend doesn't help either, according to Mint magazine (issue no. 4, p. 22) black vinyl offers the best sound quality.
