Cadillac Bratz... question for those with an original


Recommended Posts

I recieved this cd today as part of a trade.

 

The front cover is all nice and glossy on top quality paper, whilst the rear insert is on ordinary paper and slightly blurred (ie looks scanned). Could anyone else with an original please inspect theirs to see if it is the same.

 

Is this how they were released or have I been duped?

 

thanks in advance.

 

cheers,

Lindsay

yeah, I used to have an original too and there was definitely nothing scanned or blurred on it.

I don't have the Cadillac Bratz CD so can't comment on that, but I've been done once before by a seller who put a scan of the rear artwork in the case. The front original, the CD original, but the rear insert a poor quality scan. They don't tell you this of course! I only discovered this when I was changing the jewel case and saw the "kodak" words printed on the back of the rear artwork.

 

I think a lot of people went through a phase some years ago when CD binders/wallets were becoming popular and stored/threw out all the rear artwork so they could put their CD's and front artwork into binders. I think for this reason there is a lot of CD's circulating out there missing the original rear artwork. I saw an E-bay seller recently trying to sell a huge pile of original rear inserts for hard rock bands.

well, for an item that was supposed to be "mint", I feel a bit ripped off.

 

grading a cd generally means you have actually inspected it, and this sticks out like a sore thumb.

wonder if the glam_junkie's cd rear insert mentions "kodak" that seems to be happening a fair bit out there.
