ELO's A New World Record is unleashed in Japan on the new Blu-Spec CD format.  While it gets a slight uptick in sound quality (as per the other ELO blu-specs vs. standard CDs,) it gets a slight downtick in packaging quality, mostly because you get a old-fashioned opaque CD tray with a blank inlay underneath.

Otherwise, with this version, you get the entire remaster booklet in Japanese... pretty cool actually, the Jet disc label is pretty much the same design as the Mini-LP except for a few markings and there's a black and white lyric booklet inside.

Again, this is pretty much for the collectors who want everything.  The difference in sound quality won't make much of a difference for most fans.
