I received the answer from Amazon JP. They’ll send me a replacement and I’m free to do what I want with the copy I have. So, guess what guys? I’ll be working on the rip ASAP!

About SEB 243 rip

Huge loss of time. Super angry about it. In fact, Amazon ALWAYS had this issue of bad packaging. They ship fast, have lots of stuff, good prices but GODDAMN. The packaging is the worst fucking thing about them.

So, if they are willing to send a replacement and let me keep this one, I’m going to open it and rip & scan it asap. If they want it back, I need to keep it sealed. Since I’m 13h behind, I can’t chat with them until 8pm tonight (they open at 9am). So yeah. Just looking at it, angers me to no end. I’m paying 50$CAD for this and there’s 0 protection. Look:

Cheap as fuck bubble enveloppe. There was a receip, the CD and nothing else. No, the CD was NOT enveloppe in bubble wrap like with CDJapan.

Why didn’t you order on CDJapan then?

Because I couldn’t? Look, the url for SEB 243  and it is not available; in fact, it’s not even listed:
http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/AVCD-10243

But it’s up on Neowing (Japan-only CDJapan branch):
http://www.neowing.co.jp/product/AVCD-10243

Maybe it has a different URL, duh!

No, it does not. See:
http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/AVCD-10241
http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/AVCD-10240

Why is that so?

They don’t sell -any- Avex products anymore because of a dumb misunderstanding they have.

See this post on Eurobeat-Prime Forums for their answer: Click here.

Do you have alternatives?

Yes. I’ll try HMV Japan next time for 244. It’s about the same price. Otherwise, I’ll just have my forwarder pre-order on Neowing and re-ship me the box. Unfortunately, it’ll cost me even more than it cost me more and I’d better avoid that.

 

That’ll be all.

Suuuuuuurprise! Or maybe not if you found the cover below in the Eurobeat covers pack I offered a few days ago! (along with the tracklist)

23. In The Name Of Love / Kevin Johnson
24. Beautiful Day / Lolita
25. The Race Is Over / Dave Rodgers

This mix feels rough but I know most people will love it regardless!

“Bang” by Pizza Girl is the single only Eurobeat song I know that has a tempo change. It starts up at, if I remember, at 125 BPM. Then picks up at 150 BPM when the bass drum kicks in. So, in the mix, since I had to put that 125 BPM section to 160 BPM, there will be this singing pitch change that sounds kinda ackward. So, this is your explanation why! 😉

Otherwise, SCP joins the PARTY!!!!! FINALLY! But next volume, we’ll have Hi-NRG Attack and, for a volume or two, Vibration added to the mix! \o/

Hope you enjoy this mix! See you later for SEB 243 coming later this month!

Eurobeat Cover Art Collection

Posted on

Here’s something different! This is something I worked on today. So, I went on Ben Dodson’s iTunes Artwork Finder and downloaded the most eurobeat cover art I could find. I also included a lot of stuff from Junodownload (lower resolution though), bandcamp and artists website too. I also decided to avoid scans and photos as much as possible. The resulting file is… nearly 1 GB with 746 files!

Download here!!

I did not alter any of the file, except my own and a very very very few exceptions. If something’s missing, it’s because it’s unavailable, etc. There are also some cover art that I have that aren’t even available anymore!

Also, I don’t know if I will be updating this or not given that it’s a 1GB upload each time…

Enjoy!
