Good to see us Aussies are with it Mr Rocky!

Pity they’re CD and not vinyl. I’d be tempted

This was discussed last April.
On April 21, 2021 Universal Japan announced a series of 5 SHM-CD singles. It was called 'Phantom Visit To Japan'. The name came from the fact 1973 concert was cancelled. But they decided to commemorate the event.

Here they reproduced the original singles artwork from 1973 and packed CDs in 7" sleeves with usual Japanese extras - OBI, a card with small essay and lyrics.

The set was out on June 30, 2021.
UICY-96007 "Tell Me / As Tears Go By" (MONO)
UICY-96008 "Satisfaction/Get Off Of My Cloud" (MONO)
UICY-96009 "Paint It, Black/Lady Jane" (MONO)
UICY-96010 "Jumpin' Jack Flash/Gimme Shelter" (STEREO)
UICY-96011 "Honky Tonk Woman/Street Fighting Man" (STEREO)

Digital material for UICY-96007, UICY-96008 and UICY-96009 - 2016 mono transfer (the same as on In Mono box)
For UICY-96010 and UICY-96011 - the origin is unknown. Gimme Shelter is identical to the one from 2019 50th Anniversary edition of Let It Bleed. Street Fighting Man - from 50th Anniversary edition of Beggars Banquet. The other two, most probably, came from Japanese only Through The Past Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2) UK version, limited SHM-CD [UICY-79023]. Otherwise, they were prepared for Anniversary editions for BB and LIB but were not issued in digital format at the time.

Positively, the information on the ABKCO page is untrue. Both, UICY-96010 and UICY-96011, are in STEREO, not in MONO.

You still can find these SHM-CD singles on cdjapan and on jpc.de. The prices on cdjapan are ~$16 per CD (before S&H and taxes).

Are they worth the price?
If you are collecting Japanese CDs (like post stamps or trading cards) - yes, every penny. The package is outstanding and the sound quality is good (at least for three mono singles, digital material for stereo singles is a matter of taste).
If you are for music only - no, they are overpriced collector's oddities. I bet you will not play them often.

PS. Original announcement in Japanese is here

Google translate will help.

Technically, there was a set of vinyl singles to accompany the box In Mono. Those were issued in 2016. Nine 7" singles limited to 1000 copies worldwide.

You will pay a lot more than $200 now if you'd like to collect those.

I recall when those were issued. Very nice stuff. It's funny that reissues end up commanding so much money. The box set itself is worth a couple of thousand now. I checked the Beatles Mono Box set in vinyl. Sealed up to $5000.

I know. But they match two criteria - mono and vinyl winking smiley.

Ridiculous price for one single. I got the Through The Past Darkly collection SHM CD for almost the same price.
