Where can we buy it?
Tentative release date: 27 Sep 2019
Very interesting to hear about this new edition. Is it still available in Chona or Japan?
If you refer to the Japanese 33+1-CD box set released in 1994, that has been out of print for a long time. For the new edition shown in this post, it should be available internationally in September.
Correction: I mean CHINA and JAPAN!
