I have an original Japanese issue. Does anyone have any idea how much I should put it up for?

Diana Ross' first solo album after departing from the Supremes is an outstanding beginning to a successful solo career. Every song, (with the exception of the Velvelettes' hit '66 single "These Things Will Keep Me Loving You" produced by Johnny Bristol), is produced by brilliant husband-wife team Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson. Many people agree this is her best LP. Here is a track-by-track review:
1.) Reach Out and Touch (Somebody's Hand) (*****) Who can resists this song for peace and understanding? Diana sings wonderfully over this gospel inspired track, released as the lead single. Reached #20 on the Billboard charts, somewhat a disappointment for a singer who lead a group to twelve #1's.
2.) Now That There's You (*****) Beautiful haunting track which clearly has Nick and Val doing background vocals. One of the standouts of the album.
3.) You're All I Need to Get By (****) Diana's one of two covers of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell's hit singles, doesn't really add much to the original except the intro. However, its' great to hear Diana's interpretation of this classic song.
4.) These Things Will Keep Me Loving You (*****) Diana's cover of the Velvelettes' 1966 single. Diana does an outstanding job with this one. With producer Johnny Bristol singing background as he did on Diana Ross and the Supremes final Hot 100 #1 "Someday We'll Be Together" Very nice!
5.) Ain't No Mountain High Enough (*****) The second single, Diana covers another Gaye and Terrell single which she carried to #1 in the summer of 1970. A excellent track, the Funk Brothers outdo themselves on this (especially the piano player, I believe is Earl Van Dyke?) The song definitely speaks for itself.
6.) Something's On My Mind (***) A cover of Rita Wright's (Syreeta) 1968 single.
7.) I Wouldn't Change the Man He Is (***) A cover of Blinky's 1968 single, (maybe they could've called this LP "Diana Ross Sings Motown).
8.) Keep An Eye (****) A cover of Gladys Knight and the Pips 1969 album track on their LP "The Nitty Gritty", Diana does a great interpretation of this but doesn't come close to Gladys.
9.) Where There Was Darkness (*****) With the exception of "Reach Out", "Now That There's You", and the next track, this is an original and a awesome one at that. A Very catchy song!
10.) Can't It Wait Until Tomorrow (*****) Producer Valerie Simpson will cover this on her debut Motown LP "Exposed", which was uptempo and sassy, Diana Ross' version is slow groover that shows Diana's emotion. Excellent.
11.) Dark Side of the World (*****) The Velvelettes did it first in 1968 originally titiled "Bring Back the Sunshine" (check it out a beautiful song, reportedly their last recording at Motown), Marvin Gaye also did it in the late 60's when it was changed to "Dark Side of the World" but went unreleased until the 90's. Diana was last to record but was released. Very nice closing to an astounding record.
I highly recommend that beginners to the Motown Story and fans get this ASAP! Very beautiful and iconic album cover, get it today to add to your collection!

Hi there. Looking for a vinyl version WITH the bonus tracks that were recently added to the CD. Especially "The Interim". Anyone seen a version like that?
