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...

Well, I'm not too bothered about pirate stuff, so if anyone wants it for the price I paid ($77), you're welcome to give me a shout...

I'd probs also trade it for other SY bits I'm looking for.

Found this on Discogs: http://www.discogs.com/release/1191290

States "Made in Germany" on bottom right of rear sleeve.
Does NOT mention GEF 24297 / DGC 24297 catalog numbers.


No mention about blue vinyl, but the DGC 24297 do match up?

The sleeve is a direct copy of that one, aside from the different catalog number, and the labels are very similar, but have a couple of slight differences - aside form the cat #, the blue one doesn't say "33rpm" but it does have a small line of extra copyright text above the DGC logo.

It's all in excellent condition - the sleeve still has the shrink wrap on, and there's no surface noise. Drop me a PM if you wanna try & work something out...

Looks like there's another one of these "boots" on eBay at the moment, only this time it's red vinyl - I would have a bid, but it's US-only, so I figured I'd give a heads-up to anyone else that's interested - there's about 18 hours left to run on it:

Couldn't resist throwing a bid in on the red one in the end and was pleasantly surprised to win it for about half the price of the blue

It arrived today and, as suspected, is basically identical other than being clear red instead of marbled blue - from the identical matrix code, I assume it was pressed from the same plates.
The only other difference was that the red one also included a double-sided insert on glossy paper which has the same images as the inner sleeve on official copies. I'll sort some pics out over the weekend.

Just picked up grey and dark grey marbled vinyl copies of Goo and EVOL... Looks like someone's having super phun thyme churning out bootleg Sonic Youth:
