  2. Bob, I had a few people on Facebook asking me when you’ll put the
    focus on the Japanese Extended Plays? And another question is: will
    you do the 10 inch and 12inch releases one day?

      I had planned to put the complete Japanese EP section online in one go. Till now I had only about finished the first two years (1956 and 1957). But why wait, right? I will put the EP’s (so far) out there as well, and then update that section year by year when time permits.
      Sure thing, the 10″ and 12″ releases will also find their way to Echoes in the near future!

      And thanks for your help Ger!

  3. Talking about amazing facts in life? This morning I’d asked you,
    in a comment, about the plans on the EPs … and ‘whammo’ here’s the
    first bunch in all their splendour and glory, some 5 hours later … TERRIFIC!

    I now exspect from you guys & gals, our backbone so to speak, some
    nice sizzling hot response. That’s not too much asked for, is it?! If 40 thumbs
    go up on FB, talking about this site after only a few days, show us you can
    find something nice to say here, on the site itself!!! If not, I come to visit
    you, on your FB pages to talk some serious bizniz! : )

  7. There isn’t a site in this world presenting the Japanese releases as you do.
    I’m impressed, each and every time I have a look here.
    Seven comments in total for your work, with Chris’s help of course. How sad,
    and I know I’m repeating myself on this subject, no one else can’t be bothered
    leaving a comment on this and many other topics. You people in general don’t
    deserve this website. A crying shame.
    This is my opinion. Not Bob’s. I’m not as friendly as he is.
    Shame on you, save half a dozen.

    Nice site. I have four or five of these Japanese pressing Elvis 45’s in my collection. Anyone know the range for value? You don’t see them on Discogs, or really anywhere very often. Just curious if they are more valuable than the American pressings in general, and if so how much more valuable.
