Do you know whether these would have been sold at concerts, like t-shirts and other merchandise, or in record shops etc as a way of promoting the tour? Was it fairly common for Japanese artists to get their own branded MDs?


I am not sure whether they were actually sold at concerts - I don't think so. Just the usual stores that stocked recordable media. However, it was pretty common for the big electronics and recordable media companies such as Victor, Axia, Sony, Maxell. TDK to have tie-ins with specific artists who they would use in promotional campaigns - on posters, tv commercials , magazines etc.. 


There aren't too many direct artist co-branded discs. The most famous ones would be the Sony Red Hot - Utada Hikaru discs. Other included the Judy & Mary (Japanese rock group) PS discs for Axia and the TDK "Glay" (another J Rock group) MD's.
