I'm sorry - I'm not that technically advanced/inclined... The picture I posted is from eil.com - I put it up because the album looks exactly like mine, apart from a slightly dented bottom right corner on the cover of my copy.
By chance, do you recognize some of these kanjis right before/after the date you mentionned?

They mean 'release date for sales'.
Many thanks in advance :smurf:

I find it amazing how many of these mixed albums have FZ music and from so many decades... :smoke:
The most amazing is that Zurkon Wax can still find such unknown items for sale.

I was thinking exactly the same about Zurkon and his collection 8) Oh, but you're a tough taskmaster, Maroual - I wish my neighbour was still Norway's Murakami-translator, as before I moved... I can't say I recognize that sequence of kanjis, but the last one does appear in the last sentence of the booklet, after the date 1982 - unknown sign - 1 - unknown sign - 21 - sign as seen on the right above.

Thank you for having checked, and sorry for having been disturbing/insisting.
I suspect the inscription you are referring to is:

Image

Which would simply mean 'December 1st, 1982', as you seem to have guessed right at first sight.

Yes, your former neighbour would have been a precious help :wink:
Well, if some day a teenager comes to your place, maybe you could challenge him/her to take a picture of the leaftlet with a smartphone and post it there :wink:

Cheers

You're right about the signs, but the numbers are 1982-1-21, so it must be January 21. Sorry for being such a lazy bugger about technology :smurf:

I would think a 1977 version of Jones Crusher. I have seen that album btw - didn't buy it.

Yes, that's right - I'd love to have a Läther vinyl box, with design and art as close to the original project as possible. Why? Because it's an eight sided album!

I'd love to have Finer Moments on LP...since the CD has Frank mentioning album side endings 'n' stuff anyway. It certainly was made for the medium!

I might need a fellow fan to purchase the Lather box for me and then ship me it as a gift, otherwise taxation will probably make it prohibitive...

Holy shit, I've never realized you were in Paraguay :shock:
Did you recently update your location or was I just blind during all these years?
I would be okay to do it for you, however as I live in a retarded area, it might be better to have this shipped from someone in the US.

It says "comprendo 4LPs", do you have 4 records?
If yes, could you please give other pictures in order to have the complete track listings?
Thank you again

I'm not! That is only Greggary Peccary's geographic distribution. I'm still in Brazil...

Tanks but I'm positive I will find a fellow fan from the US to help me out in this quest :wink:

There is only one album, the translation of the message in the corner is
"Buying 4 lps or cassettes in this series you are entitled to one gift"
So there is nothing that says that there are 4 promo albums
