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?

I am a supporter of Silver disc...bootlegs and cd-r's....and I sure a majority of collectors have them in their collection. I agree it is a cool silver looking cd......I heard that David Shaw knows about this....a few years ago..and that Joey was going to officially release it...but the deal fell through as Joey was asking to much money for the release....to each his own......lets enjoy the songs and music in one form or another....Keep rock n roll 1st and play it LOUD!!!

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.

Thanks! I'm hoping for a Jets/Wild Stanley Cup final. \m/

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.

    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New song 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/
