I really want to buy the CD's of the Samurai Champloo album, then upload them as FLACs so everyone can enjoy the music at the best quality.

Same. I have the CDs and can send to anyone (This and Departure). I have it in Apple Lossless though, I don't do FLAC. Message me if anyone else wants a copy!

Wow, I am very impressed by how deep the bass goes on the CD compared to the MP3 files I've been listening to for my entire life. For example, the bass on the second track "Nightshift" has an continuous bass line and when I compare the CD to the MP3 it is very clear that although the MP3 does have bass it is obvious that some lower-end frequencies have been cut off compared to the CD. If you are a Nujabes fan then I definitely recommend getting the CD for the full experience.

Nothing nuts about that friend! I started replacing my 12 yrs of mp3 collecting with lossless versions about 5 yrs. Any real music collector, dj, or aficionado would ONLY have lossless files.
You really hear the difference of mp3s on big PA systems, and any decent DAC of playback system.

I am glad I am not the only one :)! People think I am nuts but I have almost fully replaced my whole library with lossless copies. It took awhile but it was absolutely worth it.

Spek is incredible, and had the same effect on me (i.e. making me OCD about quality) when I discovered it and started using it.

If you want to be completely shocked, I would suggest you download a spectrogram program called Spek. It will open a whole new world (and dare I say one that has made me completely OCD with my music quality). This will give you a visual element that will let you see exactly what MP3 actually does to your music. If you rip your CD to WAV or FLAC and then compare those to your old MP3 files, I can guarantee it will be huge shock to you especially since you were able to hear an immediate difference! I was able to get all four Champloo Soundtracks and they are all perfect quality releases. They mean the world to me :) !

For dancers, a very special track, World Without Words is easily Nujabes finest.

Buy it purely for this tune.

The reason is because it is out of print now for several years. Back in 2004, they were around $20-25 on various import websites, and unfortunately I never bought them until last year.

You are correct. I own the MICA-0327 version and it is in fact a bootleg, that being said, it is a pretty damn good one... the printing is slightly blurry, and the cover isn't transparent like on the official version. I do own some CDs where the album art work is kinda blurry (Some represses, for example) so I wasn't sure if it was fake or not, but the "Obi" that came with it was a dead giveaway, very flimsy paper (not that it really maters). I got both this and Departure for $23.60 off of ebay, a bargain considering these CDs hover between 50-100 bucks.

I guess “KO-88418”is Taiwan-version official
“ MICA-0327”is Taiwan-version UNofficial
“VICL-61453”is japan-released
