Notes

℗ 1993 BMG Music / Made in Japan / Stereo
Manufactured by BMG Victor Inc, Tokyo, Japan. From master recordings owned or controlled by BMG Music.

4 CD Box Set released in Japan. This includes the albums 'Adolescent Sex', 'Obscure Alternatives' and 'Quiet Life', plus a 'Bonus Disc' containing 'Life In Tokyo', 'European Son', 'I Second That Emotion' and 'Stateline'.

The set is issued in an attractive 12" X 12" box and includes a lyric booklet and picture booklet, featuring messages from other artists including Yukihiro Takahashi.

The CD's all feature the original album artwork. The picture booklet has photos credited to Koh Haseve and Yuka Fujii, however at least one was definitely taken by Steve Jansen (David in his flat in London). There's also a discography including Rain Tree Crow and some of the solo work. Finally, the set includes a slipcase with room for all the CD's and the lyric book - a great idea if you want to have the discs easily accessible on your shelf.

This disc uses the exact same mastering as the U.S. Caroline CD, boosting the treble and reducing the bass - overall quieter and thinner sounding than the German CD on BMG.
