ATLANTIC and STAX Records Japan-Only 2012, 2013 and 2014 CD Reissues/DSD Remasters. The "Atlantic 1000: Best R&B Collection" Series - A List.


"Atlantic 1000 R&B Best Collection" CD Series Out Of Japan - A LIST
Begun in 2012...on-going into 2015...
List updated - 8 January 2015 (255 Titles To Date)....






Using the seemingly generic title "Atlantic 1000: Best R&B Collection" - these 'limited release' CD reissues out of Warner Brothers Japan have been released steadily since October 2012 stretching ahead into February 2014 and will total an amazing 220 different releases by that time.

The ‘1000’ in the title refers to their price code - each features a budget price tag of 952 Yen which (depending on exchange rates) is roughly $9 to $11 for US customers, £5.50 to £7.50 for UK buyers and 8 to 9.20 Euros for Europeans (with P&P added on of course). As of late 2013 - roughly speaking they weigh in at about £10 sterling per title INCLUDING post - which is the cheapest I've seen quality Japanese CDs ever go for.

And what's really enticing is that all issues feature 2012, 2013 and 2014 Digital Remastering (DSD) with many titles reissued that were long out of print (and due sonic upgrades) – or new to CD entirely. They come in standard jewel cases (NOT mini repro sleeves – nor SHMs) with an inner booklet containing the lyrics and description etc and an outer Obi strip. The CD label design will ususally mimic the original release too. The booklets ave liner notes in Japanese unfortunately but there is also usually a stab at printing the lyrics in English (in many cases for the first time).

It's also thrilling to see that the reissue campaign covers many of the early Fifties Rhythm 'n' Blues LPs - Joe Turner, LaVern Baker, Chuck Willis, Mickey Baker, T-Bone Walker and The Clovers.

Blues - John Lee Hooker, Blind Willie McTell, Buddy Guy, Junior Wells and Jimmy and Mama Yancey.

And those elusive Seventies and Eighties Soul/Funk/Fusion gems – ADC Band, Oscar Brown, Jr., The Jimmy Castor Bunch, Faze-O, Funk Factory, Nikki Giovanni, Major Harris, Baby Huey, Margie Joseph, Little Beaver, Tami Lynn, Ronn Matlock, Prince Phillip Mitchell, The Persuaders, Phreek, Rasputin’s Stash, Sedan, Slave, The Staples, The True Reflection, The Voices Of East Harlem and Philippe Wynne.

For lovers of the ATLANTIC, STAX and CURTOM group of labels – here’s an alphabetical list of the titles:
