My original RADE IN EDEN vinyl LP has a typo on the album cover in how it depicts "The Ascent". On the album back cover, it is spelled "The Ascnet". Is this rare? Anyone else have one of these?

Also, years ago I picked up what I believe was an Ultravox vinyl LP release for Japan that included some rather hilarious interpretations of the lyrics of "All Stood Still". I'll have to dig that up one day and share with you folks for a good laugh.

Hi Joe

Yep: I've got Japanese pressings (....mmmmmm......pressings......) of both Vienna and RIE and the included lyric sheets are completely barking.

One of these days we'll get a definitive answer from the original soul at the Japenese company that approved the translations. Assuming, of course, he didn't take the 'honorable' way out laugh

BTW: does anyone else remember how much better 'virgin' Japanese vinyl used to sound compared to the enviromentally friendly (ie: recycled...with the label still attached!) European wanabee frisbees we used to get?

Ah, the pleasures of five trips back to the shop to get one that wasn't warped, scratched or otherwise totally buggered. First rule of buying vinyl : don't buy in summertime!!

Those were the days, eh?

I've got something like that. I think it was called 'Paths and Angles' because I seem to remember the front cover having various 'paths' and 'angles' on it. It certainly did have some hilarious translations on the lyric sheet.
