As per the promo blurb:

"This August sees the release of half-speed mastered editions of Japan’s fourth and fifth studio albums, Gentlemen Take Polaroids and Tin Drum. They are being issued as remastered single LPs on 180gram vinyl and as special 2LP sets, also on 180gram vinyl, which play at 45rpm for enhanced fidelity. An Obi strip and Abbey Road certificate are also included.

Japan’s fifth and final album Tin Drum was released by Virgin Records in November 1981. Generally regarded as the group’s best work, the album peaked at No. 12 in the UK and features the single, “The Art of Parties” and the Top 5 single, “Ghosts”.

Mastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road, each record was cut using a half-speed mastering technique; a specialist artisan process, which results in cuts that have a superior high frequency (treble) response and solid and stable stereo images. In short this produces a very high quality master, which in turn helps to create a very high quality record.

Additionally, each album is album is being released as a double 45 RPM half-speed mastered edition, the ultimate high quality reproduction as the faster the replay speed of the record, the higher the potential quality. The shorter side times also allow the level recorded to the master lacquer discs to be increased, thereby improving the signal to noise ratio".
