I found the re-issue of I'm Talking's album ''Bear Witness'' at JB Hi Fi Today.
It got a very positive review on the news.com.au websites today
Just gave mine a listen. Very cool. Those girls could sure belt out a tune. Dont like the fold up cardboard packs though.
It’s not in a jewel box? I agree, I don’t like CDs that only come in those cardboard fold-outs. Seems cheap and doesn’t look as good in my CD cabinet. In the early days I actually refused to buy CDs that came in cardboard fold outs and waited until they came out in a jewel box. Clouds Penny Century and James Reyne Electric Digger Dandy were two such CDs. I had to wait 6-12 months if I remember correctly.
But these days with physical CD releases becoming rarer, if something comes in a cardboard fold-out it will stay that way.
I also hate cardboard sleeves of any description.
I dont mind them for a single disc. Bit this has 2 discs and a booklet crammed in there. You can easily damage the cover trying to get a disc out
Also very similar was the 12" Australian 80's Pop CD's, except that had 3 CD's.
I have damaged the corners already, trying to put them into my CD rack.
Another one was Icehouse's 'Masterfile'. They were popular in the early 90's.
Yes, not a big fan of cardboard slip cases either. You have to be very careful in getting the CD's out of them and also not to damage the packaging.
