So, anyone seen/heard of this thing before?
It came through my door today after I stumbled across it on eBay a couple of weeks ago and ended up paying more than I probably should have, especially since it's almost certainly a bootleg/pirate, for the following reasons:
- the catalog number is GED 24297, which corresponds to the German CD rather than the LP
- plain white inner rather than the usual printed one
- the sleeve is on slightly flimsier cardstock than my black German LP
- the print on the label isn't as clear, and the silver areas just appear grey.
- the run-out groove includes only a hand-scratched catalog number, rather than the much longer machine-printed matrix that my black copy has.
Still, an interesting oddity nonetheless - can't remember ever seeing pirate repressings of any official SY releases before...
