I am sure I am not the only one who has seen the comments recently left on HH under Rock Candy Sucker For A Pretty Face cd. Out of all my years of collecting cd's can't for the life of me believe this Link Records issue to be legitimate. So I decided to create a poll to all the people out there. What are your thoughts and or facts also. Here are mine.

 

1. Link Records of England was in business from 1987 thru 1992.

2. Logo on Rock Candy cd does not match the real Link Records logo. Another Link Records in England?

3. Link Records did only,I mean only punk/ska type material.

4. Rock Candy cd link records 8701 first showed up on Discogs.com in there database in December of 2011. Then showed up in HH forums soon afterwards.

5. Just after the link records 8701 sucker for a pretty face cd shows up on Discogs.com database. A new member there shows up and has 1 for sale for $471 immediately afterwards.

6. All the link records cds that have been on Ebay and Discogs are from 1 geographical area in the world.

7. Gimme Gimme cd for Warp Drives was distributed by another comany called Link. They were from France and only a distribution company not a record label.

 

Most importantly for all the music information and database websites and all the countless collectors who are a part of those not 1 person has come across this cd until December of 2011. I am sure some people will be upset for this poll. Some people have spent a lot of money for this one cd. At the same time someone or somebody's making good money on an cd that anyone can make for $65 including a good copy of the Sucker for a pretty face lp. Thats how I did mine. But I am not into bootlegs so I keep the Lp I have to make my copy legal and won't make copies for anyone.

I'm pretty sure Winter's Reign and Glory are not punk/ska bands (both had an album pressed on Link)

 

The Link Records that put out Winter's Reign was from France; totally different beast.

There were several Link Records. Some from USA. The punk/ska only label was in the U.K. only. Have never seen them put out anything but, even after checking other databases. The rock candy cd was listed as from Link Records from the U.K. If people leave comments be specific. E.i. matrix numbers etc. There was a band called The Glory on Link Records U.K. but they played Oi music. Remember there was a distributor from France named Link as stated in my original post. Not the same company as the Rock Candy cd. Different countries and logos.

Just looked at my Glory and Winter's Reign CDs, and they have the same Link logo as the Rock Candy CD.

Bootleggers are human, they make mistakes. Funny, same logo 2 different countries. They should of covered their bases first. My Glory cds are on Victor. I only have the Japanese releases.

Alotta CD's were pressed in France due to costs I assume, lets not forget Lauren Smoken's release on LINK records too.

I'm happy to vote this link records issue of Rock Candy as a boot but have come accross people who own the cd years before. So I'll wait to see more info.

 

I have only seen Lauren Smoken cd on Jump from France. Link from France could have been the distributor. But all the cds from her that I have seen have been Jump. Any one have it with pics?
