This would require a good old demotivational.

"Square Enix EU - Publishes a limited edition of Chrono Cross arrangements on vinyl in Europe"

"Fifteen years since its release, Chrono Cross isn't legally available in Europe."

OK, so I got two of these vinyls. One from the European store, which has an outer sticker sporting the code SQEX-FR01, and another one from the Japanese Square Enix store.
The odd thing is, the Japanese one comes with a letter and a third vinyl inside a black sleeve, and for all intents and purpose it does seem a second copy of the C and D side.

Does anyone know why the second vinyl had to be pressed twice?

They messed up the tracklist on Side D, therefor they did the second pressing.

Quoting the relevant blurb here for historical purposes

Quote:
平素はスクウェア・エニックスの公式ショッピングサイト e-STOREをご利用頂き誠にありがとうございます。

この度、お買い上げいただきました「クロノ・トリガー&クロノ・クロス アレンジアルバム/ハルカナルトキノカナタへ LP」 Side Dの1曲目と2曲目の収録曲の順序につきまして不備がございました。大変申し訳ございません。
経緯を確認いたしましたところ、制作の過程により記載の楽曲リストと実際の収録曲順におきまして、最終2曲 の曲順が逆になった状態でのプレスに至ってしまいました。

そのため、ご購入頂きましたお客様に対しましてはSide D曲順修正後のLPディスク (Side C/Side D) を改めて発送対応致します。
※12月22日(火)以降順次発送予定です
 良品に関しましてはSide Dのレーベル内品番記載箇所の手前に★マークが記載されております。


大変お手数ですが、不備のある商品につきましてはお客様の方で良品と差替え対応いただけますようお願いいた します。
(不備のあるディスクに関しては返送不要です)

今回は商品の不備により、お客様のお手を煩わせてしまいましたこと、重ねてお詫び申し上げます。今後、同様 の不備が起きないよう十分留意のうえ、品質向上に努めてまいりますので変わらぬご愛顧をいただけますよう、 よろしくお願い申し上げます。
Short summary in English:

They messed up the order of Side D track 1 and 2 and apologize and will thus ship corrected Side D pressings after December 22nd. A corrected Side D has a ★ in front of the catalog number on the vinyl, customers aren't required to return the original press. The small blob at the end that isn't in the quote above just says that they're going to use your personal information at the time of order to ship the new items and only for this and will be destroyed shortly thereafter to prevent unauthorized access or data breaches.

It's worth noting that in most vinyl collecting communities, misprints are often more valuable than the corrected prints, so if you have a copy of the misprint it's worth holding on to.

So the misprint is a perfectly functional, aurally pleasant record that only has the order of tracks messed up. And keeps the value.

Nice to hear

Looks like this was made available to NA customers at some point but now there's a waiting list. So yeah. :/

The listing has been removed from the NA store. My hopes of ever owning this have been crushed.

Why isn't this LP a child of the CD? Then all dupe work would be unnecessary (the current credits are incomplete compared to the CD anyhow) and only the tracklist would need to be changed to account for the two sides.

AFAIK child albums must have the same amount of tracks as the parent release. They are usually reserved for western pressings of Japanese albums. So far, most vinyl releases have had less tracks, therefore they are separate entries. Cases 1 (CD & LP), 2 (CD & LP), and 3 (CD & LP).

Well, this does have the same amount of tracks, they're just arranged on 2 vinyls.

I think it's fine to merge since the content is the same. The only case were we don't make a child entry even if the track number is the same is when it's remastered, like this for example: http://vgmdb.net/album/53438
