If any of the New Seekers' Japanese albums are missing from your collection, then why not try finding them using our On the Net guide to record collecting?
When describing Japanese albums online retailers will often specify that they are supplied "with OBI". An OBI is a paper strip, usually wrapped around the left corner of LPs or CDs. Its main purpose is to translate the album's title into Japanese and to give additional information on the product.
