JAPANESE REMASTER RE-ISSUE

On July 7th, 2004, the whole 20 album JapaneseSony/Columbia back catalogue  (including Joe Perry Project and Whitford/St Holmes - associated with Sony/Columbia) are being re-issued in a limited edition format-  re-mastered and issued with new mini-sleeves (priced at 1890 yen for most, about 700 yen cheaper than the recent "Honkin' On Bobo" release in Japan).

In late December 2001, Geffen/Universal re-mastered and re-issued several of the Geffen top album sellers ("Permanent Vacation", "Pump" and "Get A Grip") a month or so short of Aerosmith's Japanese leg of the "Just Push Play" tour.

This mass release coincides with the Japanese leg of the "Honkin' On Bobo" tour which commences on July 10th for  5 shows. It has been common for Sony Music to repackage albums prior to forthcoming Japanese tours with the re-issue of "Nine Lives" in 1998 (in digipak format with booklet and Box of Fire Bonus CD) and  "Just Push Play" in 2002 (with the additional live bonus CD, "Live and Rare").
