I'll try to take time later to write down how wonderfull this release is, and that's something many heads should really have heard at least once, but there's something strange here : https://marcromboy.bandcamp.com/album/taiyo-with-ken-ishii This is the only seemingly official page I found from the label, and it mention that this release is limited to 30 copies, what I found quite surreal. Is someone around here who would be able to verify or correct this info?

EDIT : Corrected, 500 press.

Thank you and well done! Indeed, it's more clear like this. BTW it's really surprising imho that such a beautiful, complete and luxuously packaged release had so little success...

I agree that something isn't right with this release. Bandcamp seems to be the official place where this is being sold and it says it's an edition of 30, but it's still for sale there even though it was released in 2013. Also 44 people on Discogs claim to own it, and there are 11 for sale, most of which say brand new and sealed, most coming from Germany, and most are asking around half of what the full price is on the Bandcamp page. I sent a message through the Bandcamp page to ask if they know what's up. My opinion is either there were more than 30 of these made or it's being bootlegged (though that wouldn't make sense for such a niche release).

Update: I just got this reply from whoever is running the Bandcamp page. "Thanks for your message. The vinyl was limited to 500 copies. The limitation of 30 items referred to the amount of copies that we've had left when we created our Bandcamp page. That's definetely a little confusing and we changed it to 500. Sorry for any misunderstanding and cheers for the hint."
