Many seem to be 24-bit digital remasters and they've got some exclusive disc pressings, like I was looking for a Verve release of Jimmy Smith's 1964 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?' album and Albert Ayler's 'In Greenwich Village' recordings and they're only available as overpriced imports. Same with much of Blue Notes more obscure catalgoue and a number of other releases that have gotten shitty treatment here and in the UK.. I haven't found any reviews of these CD's but I was wondering if they're worth the ridiculous $40+ prices they're selling for? Has anyone took the plunge and is the packaging really that special or does it look tacky? Also can anyone tell me if the liner notes are accurately reprinted in English or Asian characters and aaprox. how the compare in size to a regular jewel case or digi? Most importantly - do those slips with the writing on them on the side of the cardboard sleeve come off after unwrapping or are they part of the packaging? They look like ugly bookmarks on the left side of the cover sleeves. In case you don't know what I'm talking about... ^ The pink-colored banner on the bottom of the cover (usually seen on the left of the sleeve). Thanks!
