Japanese vinyl pressings are highly sought after by audiophiles and collectors, due to their beautiful packaging and premium sound quality (which explains why American audiophile label Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab chose to have their highly regarded pressings manufactured in Japan). Near Mint condition original Japanese pressings are becoming scarcer — therefore more collectable and valuable every year.
