1988 – More Live! - Promo LP - Japan
This Japanese promo album was released in 1988 in Japan. The album is like a greatest hits/ Spin-off album from the "Tina Live In Europe" album. This record album was also released on CD. Japanese editions of albums are mostly released with an OBI.
Nearly all Japanese LPs were issued with an 'obi' - literally translated this means 'sash' and is derived from the obi (sash) worn around the traditional kimono dress. This delicate paper strip, usually wrapped around the left side of the album cover, often contains marketing information and album content details, all printed in Japanese kanji and ~kana script.
Obi designs can be as varied as the LPs they adorn, and some series of obi designs can be as collectable as the artists' albums they decorate. However, not all promotional LP's were issued with the obi - the LP was often distributed before the obi was produced - it is rarer to find a promo with an obi than it is without one, especially on first pressings. They are more common on promo copies of reissue albums as the timing is not quite so important as for a brand new release so there was more time to put the whole package together.
The rarest Japanese promotional LP's are those designed with exclusive custom picture sleeves, often compilations of previously released tracks issued to the media as a reminder of back catalogue success prior to the launch of new material, or an impending Japanese tour.
These retrospective LP's can be the crowning glory of any collection and they rarely come up for sale. They are often some of the most expensive LP's to obtain, with prices ranging from £50 to £1500 for the extreme rarities...!
Most people know that the "Tina Live In Europe" Album was a compilation of live songs from Tina concerts in Europe from 1985-1988. A part of this album was recorded during the Birmingham concert from 1985 and Camden Palace in London1986. Both concerts were released as an HBO special and were later released on VHS.
