Ok, why do you spend the extra coin on this Japanese import? There are three VERY important reasons:
1. This CD is mastered using 20-bit sampling which creates a smoother more rich sound as compared to the standard 16-bit recording available in the US. I have both CDs and the Japanese version is noticably cleaner, louder, and smoother.
2. The 12" Version of "One Nation Under A Groove" is included. This 16+ minute track is actually the A and B side of the original 12" vinyl issue from 1977. The first 11 minutes is the remix that has been reissued on vinyl but is impossible to find on CD. The last 5 minutes is the B-side which features a slamming extended guitar solo by Mike Hampton - a must have for every collector.
3. The packaging includes full size liner notes from the original LP. The US CD only reprints portions of the original LP art. Again, a must for the true funk fan.
Get this while you can, burn a copy, and put this one away. It may pay for itself in the future.
"The 12" Version of "One Nation Under A Groove" is included."
Well, that's what the posted review said. But I didn't notice that the review was written April 13, 2001--yet, it was posted beneath the 2014 re-release of the product. Already having an earlier version of this disc, the only reason I purchased it was for the 12" version of 'One Nation..'.
So, if you're looking for the previously unavailable 12" version of the song--sorry to day, it's not here.
Why they couldn't include it here, I have no Idea; especially since there's at least three other previously re-released versions of this disc,
What a waste.
