Yeah, that's 4 or 5 different colour Goos and 3 EVOLs now. I imagine Sister & Daydream won't be far behind.
I think all the ones I've seen have been from US-based sellers, but the boots are trying to pass themselves off as European pressings.

I'm gonna ask the shop owner I got these from what his source is. I realized when I bought them that they were reissues, but they seller didn't specify they were actually bootlegs - he just said 'these are reissues we're importing from Germany'. Kinda suspicious.

Kind of makes this look like bullshit as well:

are all these ebay purchases or there are some in "real" shops?
I'm not a big vinyl junkie, but as cool as they can look I think this is getting a bit annoying...

Well I only discovered this phenomenon today, having bought my copies of what I thought were simple reissues, but which obviously have a bit more of a mysterious origin.

And yes, I got them from a regular shop, and they were sold to me as regular reissues.

I don't really care too much about vinyl looking cool, colored, etc, or the 'rarity' factor, but it's still intriguing to see things kind of stuff appearing on the market:
- It's no easy feat to press and distribute a SY album pressed on vinyl illegally (I maybe wrong, but either you own a pressing plant, or you're very good friends with someone who owns one, + you have access to SY metal stampers, or went to the trouble of making your own from your SY CDs.
- It' a bit shitty to pass something off as an original pressing of Sister on purple-marbled vinyl and selling it for 700 $... People pay what they ready to pay for records, but even so...

That purple Sister is genuine - SST pressed them (along with pink EVOLs) around 1990. Not worth $750, but usually makes 3-figures.
So far, the only coloured boots to show up are Goo (claiming to be a German pressing, as detailed at the start of this thread) and the new "Blast First" EVOLs.

And as I said in the other thread, there's been coloured boots of popular LPs by loads of "major" bands over the last couple of years - you can see other examples sold by the same eBay sellers that have these SY ones. They're all using new plates rather than using original stampers, as evidenced the the matrix being just a hand scratched catalog number rather than the "proper" ones.

Off the top of my head, these are the only official coloured SY LPs:

EVOL (pink) - US, SST
Sister (purple marble) - US, SST
Dirty (orange) - Australia, Geffen/Waterfront
EJSTNS (clear blue) - US & Europe, DGC

Anything else is a boot (unless I've forgotten any?)
