White label pressings were generally manufactured for promotional use back in the day. Now these records are HIGHLY COLLECTABLE for their EXCELLENT SOUND QUALITY, as they were initial pressings, cut from the original master. More often than not, these promo editions would end up owned by some record company or radio station executive and would be filed away, hardly ever played! White label editions are valued at about double the price of a standard pressing.
Japanese vinyl pressings are highly sought after by audiophiles and collectors, due to their premium sound quality and beautifully presented packaging. The sonic quality of Japanese records is regarded as the best in the world. No wonder all the original Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab records were pressed in Japan! The covers are printed on better quality heavy stock paper too. Near Mint Japanese pressings are becoming scarcer ~ and therefore more collectable and valuable every year.
