I just edited my post with a link to a cheaper listing.

Ah, I see the Amazon listing is by a shill (not sure why Amazon has it as their main listing). Yeah, I'll have to nail a copy off of yahoo or amazon marketplace sometime.

Yeah, it's not going anywhere anytime soon, so take your time. Smile

I have that one, the DVD is pretty nice, maybe lacking in atmosphere a bit.

'Ghost Of Romance' is quite easy to get on vinyl in Europe, for some reason. I'm considering getting it on cd, but Dead End is one of those bands where I like separate songs more than actual albums. I haven't listened to them enough to be overly familiar with the titles, but I do remember liking 'Phantom Nation' very much.

I liked this way more than I should have, I think. I'd listened to some Creature Creature on Spotify, but it didn't do a whole lot for me. This, though . . . that voice. Wow. I was like, what? Really? Very cool stuff. Then I go and look them up and realize they've been around for 30+ years . . . but their discography still isn't as extensive as Onmyo-za's. WTF?!?!?
For those who are interested in that sort of thing, my collection on Discogs.com.

Well they did break up in the 90s. I believe Morrie disappeared somewhere in New York as well. He came out of hiding sometime in the mid 00s and moved back to Japan and started doing music again (eventually rebooting Dead End in the process).
Occasionally, I write Western and Japanese music reviews.

Well, if you subtract all of X Japan's live dvd's and pointless compilations, they have a very limited discography as well Smile And they're probably not the only example, just the first one that came to mind.

Morrie has been very influential as a singer; just listen to all the visual kei singers trying to imitate him. Many of them lack the depth and warmth that Morrie has, but the influence is obvious.

Absolutely. For a band with as much influence and reputation, and has been around as long as they have, X Japan's catalogue of original songs is actually shockingly small. I made a list of them last Spring to figure out what albums I wanted to get first, and I think it was something like 45 original songs.
WTF?!?!?

Found the list. 47 songs that I could find.
