Yellow Magic Orchestra ‎– 増殖 X∞Multiplies

Genre:

Year:
Notes:
The original 10" mini-album released in Japan, with music interspersed by Snakeman Show comedy sketches. This is usually titled "増殖" (Zōshoku, lit. "multiplication") and "X∞Multiplies". This has been re-issued on CD many times for Japanese domestic and export markets.

This master release also includes the UK/Dutch LP which features the same mixes of most tracks as the mini-LP, and has a very similar gatefold sleeve. This version essentially has a truncated version of the mini-LP on Side 2, with a selection of other tracks on Side 1. It has more similarities overall to this master release than the US compilation version.

Before adding a new entry here, please check your copy against the other master release "X∞Multiplies": Yellow Magic Orchestra - X∞Multiplies. The compilation releases all include the tracks "Rydeen" and "Day Tripper". The versions here do not.

I have a copy of this on 12" black wax, run out on A is AMSP04813-A
production No. Is A&M SP-4813

Is this an unarchived copy or a bootleg?

Public Pressure Album took the Top of the chart in Japan and the record company requested them to release the next as soon as possible.
So they decided to release a 10-inch mini album with a comedy part of the Snake Man Show.
But this unusual release created new fans and YMO became even more famous.
At the end of the comedy part, three members are also participating.
In release it was sold with a mini album embedded in LP size cardboard.

Back in the day!
I had a 12" version of the album in the UK that was pressed in yellow vinyl.

This is the 1st pressing - later copies had sleeves and labels corrected to list all 12 of the tracks on the album.
