Apparently this is not a Japanese edition. It is a Taiwanese edition.

Absolutely some amazing tracks on this album but the Paul Simon cover is dire and after 20 years it hasn't improved. I love RHP since the first lp and this one track was their only aesthetic foot wrong in my opinion. For that reason the bridge is my least favourite lp while the other albums are off the dial immense! Mark kozelek has since shown that he can do cover versions that are even better than the originals which is a real feat given many are long loved classics! If you took the Paul Simon cover off, this would be my second fav after roller coaster lp!

Solid sound, very minimal packaging. Has some of the best RHP songs (Bubble, Uncle Joe) and some other b-side type stuff, covers and an alternate version of New Jersey. A must for fans.

Red House Painters III was to be a defining moment! The rollercoaster album having hit a height that many double vinyls aspire to but never quite reach. On hearing the first two tracks it had a tension and a dark disquiet that was uneasy feeling and yet alluring at the same time. But once track three began the glass was shattered and we were thrown from the dream! Who on earth had the final say on tracks I have no idea but this is up there with the worst cover version ever. Uncle Joe and New Jersey build the dreams again but the horror of 'I am a rock' remains. Over the entire catalogue RHP III is the lp that hurts bad since in my opinion if this track three had been omitted or replaced with something else it could have been a worthy follow up to previous impressive work....but I guess at some point every artist makes an aesthetic foot wrong! Ultimately, the rollercoaster retained it's hue of untainted and unrivalled perfection. Mark kozelek has shown over time that he can write covers better sometimes than the originals so he has indeed compensated for this track many times over!
