Recordings - Japan

In the 1960s & 1970s Columbia Records under their banner, CBS Sony Music, Japan released LPs in Japan that were aimed at the serious collector. Most were compilation albums from the Classic Quartet period of the 1950s and 1960s.

The releases were primarily gatefold LPs, with detailed large colour image booklets stapled inside the gatefold; several of the images had never been seen before. Some included soft luxurious covers.

They remain in the majority available for purchase through online auction sites.
