The Mini LP faithfully replicates its UK first pressing LP design. Includes an obi replicating its Japan first pressing LP design. Despite the OBI listing the times of the long versions of the three tracks that were extended on the UK vinyl, this CD gives the standard short versions, which have been the only ones available on CD.

Mesopotamia is an EP by new wave band the B-52's. It was produced by David Byrne of Talking Heads and was originally planned to be the band's third studio album. Due to conflicts with Byrne and record label pressure, recording sessions were aborted prematurely and only six of ten songs to be completed were released as a shorter than originally intended LP. The record was distributed as a 12 EP by Warner Bros. in the US and by Island Records on vinyl and cassette in the UK and other non-US markets.

Could anyone please share some info about the sound quality of these remasters? Are they notably better and worth getting, or is the improvement only minimal? Thanks in advance!

So does this replicate the original UK EP mixes or the US? Anyone know the times?

Super P
Confirming that this is the original US mix, in spite of the OBI indicating these are the Euro remixed versions (OBI indicates "Loveland," for example, is 8:34 in length. On the CD itself, it's the 5:00 version). Disappointed, personally... I wanted a CD quality version of the Euro mixes.

I saw it on yesasia.com... The same mix than the old CD :-(生産限定盤/SHM−CD/紙ジャケット仕様01 ラヴランド (5'00)02 ディープ・スリープ (3'31)03 メソポタミア (3'50)04 ケーキ (5'50)05 ビート・ビート・ビート (4'30)06 握りつぶせ (3'32)
