Rock Candy is a BOOTLEG!


Recommended Posts

I noticed this also. Nice little story as usual. Someone always buys out a CD shop and happens to come across copies of a CD suddenly (Judging by the person's previous copies they have sold on the eBay history).

This thread should be called Sucker for a Pretty Boot. 117 quid with nine hours to go? Shit.

The guys still selling these,I was tempted but did a little digging around the forum for advice,his price is well down now,but still much too expensive for a bootleg,if someone had the artwork to send me I could save a small fortune (hint,hint) ;)

So it is a bootleg...big deal.....any of you have the silver pressed original release.????

 

You sure are a big supporter of a boot or cdr. Wonder why?

 

I understand it sucks that it was never pressed. Right, it wasn't correct? It's cool that its silver but the band has no idea it's happening?

Ripping people off and I don't mean the fucking band, by trying to pass off bootlegs as original cd's is criminal. That behaviour has NOTHING to do with enjoying music. End of story.

Agreed. Let the collector decide. If he/she decides a bootleg or cdr is alright by them, so be it. But so many of these sellers are attempting to pass off fakes as the real deal by not being forthcoming with their product descriptions or outright lying. Not cool.

And that is what the seller is doing if you read the description. THAT is not cool....

Yeah,if the seller is selling bootlegs then say so in the description and let the buyer have the chance to choose,I would pay to have certain cd's that are not available on that format but not the type of money banded around for them by someone who can simply press up a few more?

Good to hear all the great comments and feedback.......I agree with everyone....the Seller must put a proper description...either a silver pressed cd, or a silver bottom cd-r, or a Bootleg.....then it would be up to the individual to purchase the Product. keep Rock n Roll first:)

So dumb question maybe...how do you tell it is a bootleg? Based on the fact he is selling many copies or that you guys own the original and you can see the difference in the picture? I don't own this one and not bidding on this one but just curious how you can spot that stuff, especially from a distance?

I may be wrong but I don't think it's ever been officially pressed as a cd.

I would imagine if someone paid that much for it, they must be a fan and know that it was never pressed (if that's the case). Maybe someone just wants a physical copy.

 

yeah but you're essentially only paying for the artwork as a physical cd-r can be picked up pretty easily by anyone fan or not .

CD-rs have a shelf life though of about 10 years if you're lucky, less or more depending on various conditions. With a pressed disc, you'll be able to listen to it 100 years from now.

 

Not true at all - all cd's have a shelf-life.

Silver pressed CDs have a MINIMUM shelf life of 30 years. My guess is that it depends on the quality so 100 years might not be far off the mark for CDs pressed back in the day when things were better quality as opposed to today's way of how cheap can we make things.

 

The flip side...a cdr...could last as LITTLE as 2 years depending on how you care for them and the quality of the item.

Replicated CDs last longer. Data is 'pressed' into the polycarbonate plastic. Duplicated CD-R data is just burned into the dye layer of a 'pre-made' blank CD-R.

You are more likely to out-live a CD-R than a replicated CD.

like i said - all cd's have a shelf-life. Have you not seen comments at Rock Report about some peoples SILVER cd's (from the 80s/early 90s) having issues?

 

Like I said - it also depends on how they are cared for. I still have my first cd bough back in the mid eighties. Not saying it can't happen, but there are different variables to be considered and I don't know anyone who has a silver cd that doesn't play.

    • At least the album artwork is good.      ;}
    • New album released on January 20th. New single "1995" Their last album was awesome and my expectations are high... I really love the new song but especially from 2:35 on the vocals are a bit late... the end of the chorus sounds a little out of tune. I feel like they should take more than just one year for a new album and correct things like that. 
    • Some Black Friday purchases from DDR just rolled in: Alleycat Scratch - Greatest Licks and Nasty Tricks Hung Jury - Screaming In Blue Syre - It Ain't Pretty Being Easy Wild Boyz - Unleashed! And with any luck, I'll have a copy of Blue Blud - The Big Noise arriving sometime before Christmas!
    • I don't know that I really need to add anything to this discussion as most of what I would say has already been said... But you know, there are a lot of promising young bands that Frontiers could be focusing on instead of churning out a new copy and pasted supergroup album every couple of months. The appeal of groups like this is that it isn't supposed to happen very often. When that's all you do, the idea becomes stale and the term "supergroup" loses its meaning.  And thank god I'm not the only one who thinks that project name is awful. 
    • Germany & Begium are and have been poor for a while now. There was no interest in Germany (in general not the die hard fans) as they gave their side no real chance and they were right. Belgium side is too old now. As for US, they have always performed well in major champs. Australia have out performed for sure. But I'll be gobsmacked if Argentina don't despatch them  
    • A Farewell to Arms - TNT
    • Desmond is too busy counting his money of all songs he or co wrote
    • Morocco a real surprise packet. Germany going out in group stages... I think that with big European teams getting beaten by Asian and African teams it has made a lot of the pundits who write off the rest of the world shut up a bit. Soccer is the #4 winter sport in Australia and I think would be the same in USA. Just imagine how good our teams would be if it was #1 like every other country!
    • And in further news... pretty massive story, I reckon. In a nutshell, more than half of all covid fines issued in NSW to be cancelled, including refunds for those already paid, with the possibility that all covid fines could be invalidated by early 2023.  This is obviously a positive step, but what I'd like to see when all the fines are reversed, is that whomever authorised the issuing of all these fines must surely be held accountable. I don't see how something like this can not lead to a conclusion like that... but of course it won't. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2022-11-29/revenue-nsw-cancels-33-121-covid-19-fines/101710632 Revenue NSW cancels more than 33,000 COVID-19 fines after Supreme Court hearing By Maryanne Taouk Posted Tue 29 Nov 2022 at 1:09pmTuesday 29 Nov 2022 at 1:09pm, updated Wed 30 Nov 2022 at 9:23amWednesday 30 Nov 2022 at 9:23am The NSW Supreme Court found two COVID-19 fines to be invalid.(ABC News: Bindi Bryce)   The NSW government will withdraw more than 33,000 COVID-19 fines after a Supreme Court hearing on Tuesday. Key points: The fines cancelled are about half of the 62,128 COVID-related infringements issued Revenue NSW says that all sanctions on unpaid fines will now stop They also said the remaining 29,017 fines would still be required to be paid Earlier on Tuesday, Justice Dina Yehia SC was set to hear arguments that two fines for between $1,000 and $3,000, did not meet the requirements of section 20 under the Fines Act. Barrister Katherine Richardson SC said the plaintiffs had in effect been forced to take the "extraordinary step" of going to the Supreme Court after other unsuccessful attempts to have the fines reviewed. "It's only at the eleventh hour the Crown has finally accepted these were invalid," she said. Within a matter of hours the government moved to withdraw more than half the infringements issued under NSW's COVID-19 restrictions. The case centred on the technical basis the notices did not provide a sufficiently detailed description of the offence committed and were therefore invalid. In a statement issued after the ruling, Revenue NSW confirmed it would withdraw 33,121 fines. A total of 62,128 COVID-related infringements were issued in the state throughout the pandemic. "Where fines are withdrawn, all sanctions, including drivers licence restrictions or garnishee order activity will be stopped," the statement read. "Where a fine has been withdrawn and a customer has made a payment — either in part or in full — Revenue NSW will make contact to arrange a refund or credit the payment towards other outstanding debts." a woman standing outside a court room talking Solicitor Samantha Lee called the decision "extraordinary".(Facebook: Redfern Legal Centre) The agency also noted it did "not mean the offences were not committed" and "the remaining 29,017 fines will still be required to be paid if not already resolved". Scott Johnston from Revenue NSW said his decision was made in the interest of being "consistent and equitable", and refunding the close to $10 million that has already being paid, will start immediately. "We'll be working through a process to contact everyone who's either made payments to discuss getting a refund as quickly as possible," Mr Johnston said. "Or to those that haven't resolved those fines, there'll be nothing further for them to do, but we'll advise them as such." About one third of people have already settled their fines, with others making part-payments while about 8,000 fines are overdue, according to Mr Johnston. "We've got everyone's' details who's paid, we'll have to write to everyone to get their details so we can return the money to the right bank account ... we'll also have a hotline. "We're ready to answer the calls that come, customer service is important to us and doing a good and fair job."  a man standing outdoors and in front of microphones speaking to the media Mr Johnston says staff at Revenue NSW are ready to answer queries about people's refunds.(ABC News: Harriet Tatham) Earlier, David Kell SC, representing the NSW Commissioner of Fines Administration, warned the court the two infringements did not meet the act's requirements. Mr Kell said the court should be "cautious" in throwing out the fines, as it would set a precedent in the area. In a statement the Law Society of NSW welcomed the "common sense" decision but urged Revenue NSW to review the remaining COVID-19 related fines — especially any imposed on children.  "Many of the top fifteen per-capita locations where fines were issued during the Delta outbreak have high Aboriginal populations," Law Society president Joanne van der Plaat said. "These include the top three of Walgett, Brewarrina and Wilcannia. Eleven of these communities are counted among communities suffering the state's highest level of social disadvantage." Data reveals NSW COVID fine hotspots A combined total of $3.2 million in fines were issued across Mount Druitt, Liverpool and Dubbo from the start of the pandemic to October last year. Mass cancellation Brendan Beame and Teal Els's court challenge, brought by Redfern Legal Centre, was the catalyst for the mass cancellation. Katherine Richardson SC, said more than 160 people had received an identical $3,000 fine as Ms Els, and more than 500 had fines with similar wording. Ms Richardson said Ms Els had no idea what she was being fined for when she was approached by police while sitting in a park after exercising with her sister. "How can she tell, for example, having no idea what offence she said to have committed with a penalty amount of $3,000, which is obviously a very significant amount of money to be imposed by notice procedure," Ms Richardson told the court. "Our submission states they are entitled to a refund. They have been charged money invalidly and we are pressing for a full range of relief to be sought." In July, Rohan Pank had his fine dismissed for sitting on a park bench in August 2021, during Sydney's lockdown. Redfern Legal Centre represented the three plaintiffs who said they received little information and the fines lacked details about any public health orders breached. The total amount of fines issued during the lockdown amounted to more than $33 million according to Revenue NSW. Most common COVID-19 offences revealed It's New South Wales's COVID-19 lockdown like you've never seen it before, a story not told by the number of cases, vaccines or venues of concern, but a new metric: fines. Sydney faced a 107-day lockdown in mid to late 2021 as the Delta and Omicron waves spread through the city. There were also 12 local government areas in Western Sydney that faced harsher lockdown restrictions including a nightly curfew.  Outside court, Redfern Legal Centre's acting principal solicitor Samantha Lee said it was an "extraordinary" day for NSW. "The state has conceded that the COVID fines brought to the court today are invalid," she said. "We are going to ask the commissioner of fines to set up a mechanism to give the money back. They have no other means than to withdraw those fines. This case has set a precedent." Ms Lee said the decisions today has the potential to invalidate all COVID-19 fines that were issued during the 2020 and 2021 lockdown. Justice Yehia is expected to make a formal judgement in early 2023.
