    Well I can`t be 100% sure,

    But I translated this official sony japan page in google translation and it seems like they might be better,
    But ofcourse google translation is not always perfect.

    From the information, sounds like we won't be getting any Harvest labels in the discs that used to have them. Same as what happened with the recent LP re-releases that didn't use them either.

    Yeah, only get from Dark Side and out. This time it seems like the dark side labels will be the first issue solid blue ones instead of the blue outline prism that the first mini lp issue had.

    The pre-dark side, could either be a copyright thing or that they didn`t find it intresting enough to replicate, compare to the picture labels.

    Also seems like The Final Cut will come with 2 replica labels, which the first mini lp issue didn`t have.

    By the end of the 3rd paragraph it says so. The Harvested logo can't be used for copyright reasons. Hence the labels of the CDs will be picture labels, and only from Dark Side onward the proper LP labels are included as inserts.
    (Point for Oh By the Way )

    The solid blue prism in Dark Side is also accurate for the Japanese LP releases. They never used the outlined triangle.

    A pity the inserts with Japanese lyrics won't be included in any album.


    ps:

    Don't you love the Japanese titles of some albums?

    狂気 (madness/insanity) = Dark Side of the Moon
    鬱 (depression) = A Momentary Lapse of Reason
    対 (opposition/fight) = The Division Bell
    永遠 (forever) = The Endless River

    I realize now that this Japanese paper sleeve series is mastered differently from the 2011 remastered CD only from The Wall.


    This is a comparison of The Wall disc 1.
    The waveforms on the 2011 remastered CD version are clipped on almost every song. It's louder.



    The 2017 paper sleeve version of the waveform is only slightly clipped on Mother and Another Brick Pt 3.
    The volume is lower than the 2011 remastered CD and the compressor treatment is more modest.


    Does anyone have any information as to why the masters used on the Japanese release are different?
