 WARNING:   Japan CD compilations are not generally available for sale in North America. A few of them have slipped through the cracks but sightings of ELVIS have been by far more numerous! Conventional wisdom suggests that the reasons for this have to do with the nature of Perry's contract with the original label. This phenomenon is not exclusive to Perry alone, it may well affect other RCA Victor artists with Perry's stature. Until this situation is resolved, Perry's original albums are unlikely to be available for sale in North America under the RCA Victor logo.  Japan CDs, like their vinyl counterparts, have always been produced to a very high standard.
