Kaja – Extra Play ‘Mini LP’
The world of collecting often unearths one or two oddities, and today’s showpiece is something that certainly passed us by here at KajaFax HQ. What we bring to you now is an item familiar to all….but did you ever notice the subtle differences? KajaFan Denny did, and after perusing our discography page very kindly emailed us with his discoveries….
First of all, take a look at this:
It’s the cover of the Kaja US album ‘Extra Play’, right? It is, but not the only one.
As he explains it so much better that I ever could, here’s what Denny had to say when he emailed….
“Hi KajaFax, I thought you might be interested in seeing these? Today, I received the standard 9 track version of Extra Play. I went looking for a good sealed copy after seeing the track list on the Kajafax discography page. The version I had only has 7 tracks – 5 on side A, and 2 remixes on side B. You will notice the one on the right says “A MINI LP” between Extra and Play. Both are from EMI America but they have different catalogue numbers:
Original 9 track version: ST-17157
Mini LP version: MLP-19012
I have included a picture of both sides of the cover. Both are sealed so I can’t include the labels. You can’t really see, especially on the mini LP version, that the catalogue numbers appear under the ‘E’ on the front cover on both versions…”
Always with a keen eye, Denny has indeed found a quirky release that passed us by! Here are his photos:
A fabulous collectible and one to look out for!
Many thanks of course to Denny for taking the time out to contact us with this information.
Do you own any quirky, previously unseen vinyl items by Kajagoogoo or any of its solo band members? If so, why not photograph it, tell us where you got it and why it’s so scarce, and email it over to us! We would love to know more about what you have in your Kaja-collection 🙂
