arlw recently purchased the Japanese release of Big Bad Rock Guitar of Glen Campbell (posted below) as well as these three NEW Japanese releases on SHM-CD each with the Japanese OBI.
Looking forward to reading arlw's review of these recordings.
What is SHM-CD format? According to Wikipedia:
SHM-CD is a digital optical disc data storage manufacturing process. It is an improved compact disc product with the greatest change being a different polycarbonate material that allows more precise physical representation of stored bits during pressing and less laser scatter during reading. These improvements aim to facilitate playback by producing fewer errors and potentially better sound quality. SHM-CDs are played on a standard CD player. This process was developed in Japan by Universal Music Japan and JVC.

Thanks, arlw!

Ar and all --
I received UMe's reissue of "That Christmas Feeling" on vinyl today.
This is just a guess based on the feel of the weight of the new sealed vinyl album. I don't believe it is 180g vinyl.
It is lighter in comparison to the 180g Phoenix vinyl that was released maybe a year or two ago?
The official press release states nothing about "remastering", "180g", etc.
Unless I hear otherwise (and will let you all know if I do), I will likely return the reissue to the retailer because it appears to be no different from the original release.
One small difference: there is a slight color variation in the album cover -- the new one appears to be less warm, less brown/red than the one I bought in 1968. See below.

Ar, I should be able to post whether or not it is 180g by tomorrow evening if "That Christmas Feeling" arrives on the time schedule sent to me by an online retailer today.
(The Phoenix reissue on 180g did not state this info on the album, but it is noticeably heavier than the original issue on vinyl. Also, its original marketing descriptions were very clear about Phoenix's premium vinyl.)
I did find a site on the net that described this album as a limited edition, but it did not specify the number of vinyls produced.
Let us know if the remastered CDs from Japan are appreciably better audio-wise. I am very curious about the sound!

I pre-ordered that LP from Amazon--Glen Campbell-"That Christmas Feeling"--I am trying to figure out if it's also 180 gram vinyl....I know the Phoenix one is but if anyone knows, let me know and thank you.


The CD's that have been re-mastered and released for 2016-I bought from Japan as they are sealed and all come with the OBI Strip down the side:

The Big Bad Rock Guitar of Glen Campbell
Wichita Lineman
Gentle on my Mind
By the Time I Get to Phoenix.[/b]

If anyone knows about that Xmas release LP, post it here so others can also see it...

Thanks Arlw for the information! Your collection is as infinite as Glen's discography... :)

A stupid question perhaps... but did we notice that a PAL version of I'll Be Me was released on DVD earlier this year? Meaning UK and European fans can now watch it too?

Just FYI Only:

I had the chance to check Amazon.com today for some Glen Campbell items--beware of some "New Releases" that are NOT new! That Christmas Feeling is an ok 180 gram record of which I will probably pre-order, but check the date of the " Phoenix LP." Even though it says 180 grams, this record is not a pre-order--I have this and it was released in March 2013-my write up from my collection is below. Just wanted to let the fans know that the CD might be new, but the LP is not! My copy is very unique!

Glen Campbell – By The Time I Get To Phoenix – ST-2851. This format is an LP and because it has been re-stored /re-mastered, this record will remain sealed for value purposes only. #509999-12054-14.Capitol Music from EMI. On the back of this jacket they have it originally released as 1966 which is an incorrect date! It should read 1968! Capitol Records LLC. What makes this unique is that it was re-released on 180 gram vinyl, which makes it a better recorded, better sounding record as the vinyl used is a heavier gauge, than the normal LP’s. The picture used on this record is the same as the 1968 released album. The write up is also the same. The spine part of this LP looks worn even though it is a brand new item! Release date of this LP was March 12, 2013. Editorial Reviews-Glen Campbell's By the Time I Get To Phoenix from Capitol Records Nashville's storied catalog reissued on 180-gram vinyl. The album has been mastered for vinyl by Ron McMaster at Capitol Mastering and is packaged in true-to-original LP sleeves with restored artwork. Released in 1968, Glen Campbell's By the Time I Get to Phoenix was also a major genre-crossing success, winning the year's coveted Album of the Year GRAMMY Award and topping Billboard's Country Albums chart at #1 and reaching #15 on the Billboard 200. The Platinum-certified album's title track hit #1 on the Country Singles chart and peaked at #26 on the Hot 100, and the song earned two GRAMMY Awards for Campbell: Best Vocal Performance, Male and Best Contemporary Solo Vocal Performance, Male.

Guess gotta cut back where you can and save ink or something. Makes ya appreciate the good ole Capitol (let's see capitol, not capital right lol) record days where you could buy a 45rpm vinyl for less than a buck and still get correct spelling. :D
