We’re pleased to announce that Ultra-Vybe Records, a label based in Tokyo has released all of the original Free Design Albums as well as a “Best Of” album on CD in Japan! The first three albums plus a singles CD were released on January 19, 2011 followed by the remaining four albums on April 20, 2011. They are available in Japan via Ultra-Vybe’s website ( http://www.ultra-vybe.co.jp/) and through HMV Japan (http://www.hmv.co.jp/en/) among others. Ultra-Vybe utilized all the original Free Design album art to create their releases and they look fantastic! They also created their own art for the singles CD and it really captures the Free Design vibe.
