Default "Capitol Box, Volume 2" question

Hello,

If the yellow sticker is gone, how can I tell if I have the box that contains the correct mixes (i.e., the SK-1 box)?

Thanks,
Michael

That's good to know because until you (Hof) pointed out that fake mono stuff a few months back--I had no clue. The false start "I'm Looking Through You" didn't register until you said something, so thanks for that. Looks like Capitol will be getting more of my money one of these days. errrrgh.

If you are talking about The Capitol Albums box set, I had them did'nt care for them the Mini LP's are not standered size, I do like the Japanese Capitol Albums Box set right size and 24 bit conversion verses the American 16 bit.

Also good to know. About a month ago I'd asked if there was any difference between the two and the answer was no-that they are the same.

It is my understanding that the first pressings of the second Capitol Box (i.e., Volume 2) had incorrect mono mixes for some (maybe all) of the four albums. When discovered, it was corrected and distributed by Capitol with the "SK1" code.

I puchased the Capitol Box within a few months of its release, but was unaware of the situation above at the time of the purchase. I opened the box and threw away the cellaphane wrap that included the yellow sticker where the "SK1" was printed. Hence, my question above. Does anyone have an answer to my question?

@62hofner: Thanks for posting the sticker.

Regards,
Michael

Are you simply asking about the actual BOX that the disc set came in - and not the music inside?

Without the sticker, there's really no way that I know of to tell whether or not your BOX is an "sk1" box. "sk1" was printed on the sticker and nowhere else.

As for the music itself, you'll know if you've got the wrong mixes if there's the "false start" on the mono "I'm Looking Through You".

Hope this helps.

@62hofner: Thanks --- the music is what I'm most interested in (i.e., are they the correct mixes). Thanks again.

Regards,
Michael

Edit: I just checked my set, and the mono "I'm Looking Through You" does have the false start. So, I have the incorrect mono mixes. That's what I needed to know. Thanks again.
