About this deal
Unfortunately, what was true in Japan was not true in the UK; therefore, the album's promotion, mentioning 'unreleased tracks', was incorrect for the domestic market, attracting criticism at the time.
Exorcising Ghosts is a compilation album by the British band Japan, released in November 1984 by record label Virgin.
Mastering on LP1 was warm but a bit murky (vocals), however the instrumentation definitely did seem crisper and more detailed - just a shame neither copy were playable throughout. Japan’s 1984 compilation Exorcising Ghosts will be reissued as a half-speed mastered 2LP vinyl set, in October.
Not sure if this just applies to later batches as couldn't find anyone else commenting about warped vinyl.
