On  March 28, 2001, Ayumi Hamasaki released her first best album, “A BEST.” The album included many of Ayu’s early hits and went on to sell 5 million copies. In honor of the 15th anniversary of the album’s release, she will be re-releasing the album on March 28. The album will be remastered by Stephen Marcussen, owner of Marcussen Mastering, in Los Angeles, California. He has previously worked with the likes of The Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney.
