I apologize if this is already noted elsewhere on this board. A&M/Universal in Japan has recently re-pressed Carpenters Best (DCI-83267/8), originally issued in 1994 in 2 separate volumes and distributed through mail-order only, in a new 2-disc case with different artwork and packaging. While the contents of this new release remain identical to the earlier one, the sound fidelity has been much improved. This would be a good opportunity for those who are searching for the earlier release (which sometimes comes up on ebay at a stiff price) to pick it up at a reasonable price of around $30 (before shipping) from amazon.jp. Surprisingly, this new release is not listed on cdjapan.
