Thanks, that had escaped me! Got some of those expanded SHM reissues, but none by Mobley.

Flurin it's not one of the SHM-CD releases, it's an "LT Series" cd release from EMI Japan before the label "moved" to Universal. It was pre-SHM-CD Blue Note.

Sorry, misread @jazzbo ... but still missed the info on that bonus track (got one each of the Shorters and Larry Youngs in the LT series)

Yes, and they kept a unique mastering sound for this series, more "chunky" than the usual Japanese Blue Note sound of this decade.

Well, the LT Series (and the most of the whole Cuscuna first wave vault products) had a different sound from their origins on LP. That stuff had a different sound than di the Lion/Wolff product. It's been out some many different ways now...but yes, those records DID sound a different way.

Right, and the Japanese kept that uniqueness, imo more so than the few that the US released on cd with different covers. I think I have almost every one in that EMI Japan released in that series, it was exciting to see each batch of releases.
