Can I smell a rat here ?


Recommended Posts

I have purchased one of these from this seller last week who states they are from his own collection, but it also states, it is a Japanese remastered release through the Duran Duran Fan Club.

Prior to me buying this, he had 6 for sale and over a couple of days , it went down to 5, 4 then 3 ,2 so I thought i would get one because they are going pretty fast and everything seem legit even though they were Jap issued fan club CD with extra tracks and the items were located in Finland.

Well when you purchase it, you have to wait until they send you the invoice before you can pay for it.

Well the invoice arrived in which you have to pay with Paypal through CCNow but the sellers email address finished in .ru which means Russia............ Straight away I thought FUCK, something is not right here and now I see he has another 6 for sale......Can I sense something shifty here ?????????

Where does he say it's from his personal collection? I don't see this anywhere in the auction.

 

I do know that people in Russia cannot sign up for PayPal, so in order for them to accept PayPal payments, they have to go through a secondary processor like CC Now.

Up in the "item location" section if I re-call correctly.

 

Yeah, In the item location it say's "From my collection" but it also states that the Country of origin of the CD is Japan :unsure:

His feedback is excellent with no one complaining, only praising.

I lot of buyers would not recognize a boot if it kicked them in the ass ...ahem this includes me unless it is a badly done boot, so good feedback is almost meaningless where boots are concerned...

I always recognize a boot when it kicks me in the ass. I pay special attention to the leather, the stitching, the laces, and--most importantly--the owner of the foot inside the boot. You know, so I can return the favor tenfold.

 

What's that? Not the kind of boot you were referring to? Ah, well, never mind then. As you were.

I've heard rumors of some new Russian bootleg imitations of Japanese pressings with OBIs, so it could be one of those.

(Wow, already my second post! :whistle: ) Yes, you're right! These are bootlegs and take it from me: excellent ones. I have bought several items from Igor (day-bidder) and never been disappointed. The only thing that sets them apart from the real thing is a: some Russian writing (especially on the OBI) alongside Japanese/English and b: you KNOW it isn't an official release.

 

So if you don't mind a bootleg or two: go for it :banger: , if you mind: :gone:

 

I myself have the two Andy Taylor CDs from "day-bidder" so I'm happy :banana: and pleased with them :chug:

:idea: Ah that Sam! I thought it was him but wasn't sure. Anyway don't think for a minute I'm on Sam's side on this subject :angry: but maybe sometimes there's the exception to the rule....or is there? :unsure:

I guess someone's gonna comment on this. That either you're against bootlegs or you're not, that you can't be both.

 

So don't get me wrong, I'm 99.9 % against it.... :huhsign:

 

:lol:

There are plenty of reasons to be against boots .....unfortunately a lot of the stuff being booted is not available in proper release form so what is a music fan to do....it's too bad there aren't more people like stormspell who are willing to re-release product by relatively obscure bands, until we can get the music we want we have a choice , you can buy the boot or go without......neither option is satisfying....

This CD arrived and I must agree with Backstar, if not for a bit of Russian writing on the OBI, it is otherwise a very professional package.

I'm very happy with it.

    • of course they should. IMHO. otherwise soon this excellent database of music will get out of date. 
    • heard this on FB earlier. I've loved everything these guys have done, and great live. Virtually guaranteed to be near the top of my albums for 2022 
    • What is your definition of a "Glam Band"?   
    • If properly labeled as such, I don't see a problem. 
    • Yup. Meant Keeling. My bad.  Will come up with some more.
    • No issues with the health care system in Australia could be because you have been locked down for the last 2 years and haven't really had to deal with the same level of infection.....congrats, sounds like your politicians have it all under control 
    • Asking because I received an inquiry. It seems we revisit this issue every few years, but the state of the industry and opinions change, so it doesn't hurt to revisit the issue. I know that the main HH site is focused primarily on physical media releases, but as the world goes increasingly digital, if we limit the database to physical media releases only, we run the risk of being increasingly irrelevant (even more than the musical genres we love already are). I personally don't see a problem in including digital-only releases in the main site DB as long as: They are authorized, i.e., released by the band or a record label. No fileshares, torrents, etc. They have cover art, They are clearly labeled as a "Digital Release" in the listing. See this example: https://heavyharmonies.com/cgi-bin/glamcd.cgi?BandNum=53&CDName=Leppard on the Loose Thoughts, suggestions?
    • I wonder that too.  I know I saw some interviews with Ronnie where he said the band hadn't really been active much since COVID started.  But that was back when his first solo album was dropping earlier this year.  Haven't heard much since that. This 2nd solo album sure seems to suggest the band is probably on hiatus or something.  Or at the least no new material is very imminent if this is where Ronnie's focus has been.
    • Excellent stuff!   These guys have done a lot of different sounding stuff but for me this song suits them perfectly....edgy, catchy, melodic hard rock.  Don't think I could say it's the best they've done but do like it a lot.  I will say though that for me, this tune absolutely blows away anything on that Robin Red solo album. Looking forward to this album for sure.
