    Notes

    LPs include all original inserts and obi strips, although these are blank on the back (the originals usually promoted other releases).
    The first X∞ Multiplies (ALJA 5) is pressed here on 12" not the usual 10", and the sleeve looks like the UK pressing of that album. It also includes a fold-out insert.
    The second X∞ Multiplies (ALJA 6) includes a 24" x 24" double-sided poster.
    Service has a red obi not the usual black obi. The red obi was used for one of the mini LP CD pressings!
    The bonus EP features an interview with Hosono, "Computer Game" and "Firecracker" play in the background.
    The live version of "Rydeen" included here was performed live on the TV show "Yoru No Hit Studio" and only otherwise appears on the video/laserdisc release "TV-YMO".
    A red YMO handkerchief is also included.

    Instant YMO collection. Buy this if you're ever lucky enough to find it. The only other thing you could hope to get is the Analog Box Set released around the same time. To review this release would be to review YMO as a band entirely, and that's just impossible. Easily one of the best bands of all time, YMO's body of work is absolutely stunning. As expected of a three-man(God?) supergroup - pairing the classically-trained brilliance of Ryuichi Sakamoto with the experienced and funky Hosono and the stylistically sensible Takahashi, YMO are as close as you can get to perfection in the often-imperfect world of music.
