These are supposedly new still in shrinkwrap CD's... Well, they are in shrinkwrap, but not originals... I had the original in not so very condition, and these aren't the same, print on disc is obviously different when comparing them (old original with new)...

Jimbo, I believe that this is the person rnrfun is referring to:

 

http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQgotopageZ1QQsa...osortpropertyZ1

 

 

This makes the 3rd or 4th copy of each CD that this seller has sold in the last 30 days....doesn't necessarily make 'em boots, but it is strange that all these CDs from a New York area band wound up in Vegas.... :blink:

 

Anyone out there have some more insight into these?

Hmmm... seems a little strange. Check out the feedback - all of a sudden, this seller from LAS VEGAS without much bidding action is selling HTF cd's after selling a radiator hose. <_<

 

Coinky-dink? Maybe... :blink:

Hi All, I was one of the folks who won one of the touris cd's from the seller on ebay. I have not paid for it yet, but plan on paying tomorrow. I was curious myself as to the authenticity of this disc, but I noticed in the sellers feedback metal mayhem left pos feedback, so I will just call Ryan at metal mayhem and make sure this is on the up & up. but ryan would not have left pos feedback if he had suspected a fraud. I am not defending the seller, just stating what I see on the feedback. will give an update with what I find out. thanks!

Mike, definitely keep us posted! You know how much we all love a good controversy around here... :P

Well, I don't know if Ryan has opened it or what? Or maybe he didn't have an original to compare it to...? *BUT* I can tell you that I have seen an opened one from this seller, and it's a boot, unless the one I owned from around 1995 or 1996 is a boot, whcih I highly doubt... Not to mention, this seller claims to have gotten many CD's from from a "Vending" show (notorious for boots, especially if all of a sudden there are many of a real rare CD that the band doesn't even have no more)... What are the chances of a bunch of unopened Touris CD's ending up in Las Vegas, at a vending show? Not to mention if he got so much music why is he only selling Touris CD's and that's it, nothing else, and previous feedback that doesn't have to do with music/CD's...! :banana:

haha....the conspiracy police are out in full force!!! Because you can only actually go back to the sellers last four transactions or so and look and see what they sold prior....how can you make such a statement that 'is selling HTF cd's after selling a radiator hose.'...?? Otherwise, you have no idea what the seller sold prior to that......

 

*shrugs*

 

I don't know if the seller is selling legit cds or not.....but isn't always interesting when someone who only has had NO posts prior on this board comes on here and starts shouting 'bootlegs'....!!! LOL

 

Didn't we already do this once before?? Is this Deja Vu???.....or is it just a 'coinky dinky'.....

rnrfun,

 

I just placed a call to ryan, and emailed him as well, I know he just bought one from a different source than the guy on ebay, so yes he has some comparison available to him, I am not defending this guy either, but I also don't see the need to start looking for the "other guy" who shot kennedy like you seem to be doing, when your only proof is he has "extras" to sell and they are sealed??. I personally deal with some bands and get multiple copies of these so called rarities, but they are legit. bands often have extras around, or you can find several in a box from a seller who went out of business, or just put them aside, or whatever. the seller in question did tell me he only had 6 copies, this is not unheard of. I know folks who have stumbled across 5-10 copies of the big rarities, sealed, but lost to the world, until they discovered them. also, I have seen copies of cd's by bands in L.A. turn up in NY, or even farther away, like england. these bands were sending cd's all over the place when they were trying to make it, so it is no mystery to me that they would turn up anywhere. for example, by brother found a mint copy of FRICTION -BABY TALK in a small used cd store in colorado, the band is from Pennsylvania so you never know. I would like to know what ryan has to say about the cd he has left feedback for, and how it compares to his other touris cd. believe me, if I found out something strange I would not pay for the cd, and would shout it from the highest rooftop and let everyone know. but your "evidence" is based on assumption. you obviously have not ever got lucky and scored several rare cd's your self that no one else has, but let me tell you it is exciting. you said you had won the cd from this guy, what is your user id on ebay, so I can check to see you actually won it from this guy, and aren't just trying to damage his business?? where did you see one? did the seller email you a scan or what?? also, I agree with jlprocks, just because this guy was selling a radiator hose, and not cd's, does not alarm me at all. in fact, to me that makes him more legit, at least on the surface. bootleggers or sellers of boots tend to have others they boot, or have access to. so that is a bogus arguement. as soon as I hear from ryan I will respond. one more thing, you are wrong if you think the band does not have anymore of these cd's, I have talked with 2 bandmembers of Touris and they have more, but they know they are going for $200 a pop, so they don't want to give them away at the moment. when your arguement consists of "what are the chances of someone having this cd" you need to get more facts. thanks!

Jim, chill! :lol: What, you don't see the humor here?? :wacko: My own feedback is pretty hilarious... a pair of Seven jeans, then an antenna tester the next day! Oh yeah, can't forget the juicer amongst all the CD's too... :P

Also, I just noticed this guys third to the last feedback was left by another friend of mine, steve (rockcds4u2), and he was very happy with his purchase, their other touris cd, the chrismas disc. I am going to talk with Ryan, but this is sounding like a "witch hunt" to me. JLProcks may have been right, the conspiracy police are working overtime once again. but will confirm this with steve and ryan. more to follow.......

Mike, I was the one that made the smart-ass remark about the radiator hose. Sorry if I pissed you off with that - I really just thought it was kind of funny. :( Who knows, maybe the guy is a member of the band and moved to Vegas (and happened to have an extra radiator hose lying around)... :P

also rnrfun, you are also wrong that this guy's previous feedback has nothing to do with music/cd's, the feedback comment left prior to metal mayhems, was regarding and AC/DC cd, so that was another incorrect statement you made. more FACTS to follow........

Christine, no problem here, it is funny to see what other's sell, why in my early days I was selling rocks on ebay, yes, rocks, no shit. I took pictures of rocks from my area, and listed them on ebay. you would not believe the rock collectors that were emailing me, and buying them, now I did not make any cash really, but I see the humor. to my knowledge this guy is not in the band, but he is from NY and is living there now, he says he found the discs in vegas, but he is in NY, where the band is from. again, I am not defending the seller, but I just cannot find any "shady"aspects as of yet. more to follow.....

That was cute!!....and you're right, Chris....I was just laughing about the whole *in my best John Kerry voice* "This is a bootleg seller.....don't buy from him. I have a plan....I mean an original. Blah..blah...blah.." without all the chips being put on the table.

 

Hell...all I know is I sold MY original Touris about a year or so ago for like $65 to Ripper. In hindsight.....BIG MISTAKE!! LOL But....as happens, the HYPE for the cd wasn't as big back then and no one really knew of it...so it only garnered that much *although I knew I could have asked for a bit more*.

Here is an update on the Touris cd's:

I talked with Ryan at Metal Mayhem and he sees no difference with the original in question and his original from years back. also talked with one of the other bidders on the touris christmas cd, his is original and looks good. For me this closes the case, I have paid for mine today, and am excited to get it. just wanted to let you guys know. take care!

    • OBITUARY   Christine McVie, Keyboardist and Singer for Fleetwood Mac, Dead at 79 The singer-songwriter was responsible for some of the group's biggest hits like "Don't Stop" and "Little Lies" BY JON BLISTEIN NOVEMBER 30, 2022 English singer, songwriter and keyboardist Christine McVie of rock band Fleetwood Mac, UK, 18th January 1969.EVENING STANDARD/HULTON ARCHIVE/GETTY IMAGES CHRISTINE MCVIE, THElongtime co-lead vocalist, keyboardist, and songwriter for Fleetwood Mac, has died. She was 79.  The band confirmed McVie’s death in a note shared on social media. “There are no words to describe our sadness at the passing of Christine McVie. She was truly one-of-a-kind, special and talented beyond measure. She was the best musician anyone could have in their band and the best friend anyone could have in their life. We were so lucky to have a life with her. Individually and together, we cherished Christine deeply and are thankful for the amazing memories we have. She will be so very missed.” In a statement, McVie’s family said she died today, Nov. 30, at a hospital “following a short illness.” The statement continued: “She was in the company of her family. We kindly ask that you respect the family’s privacy at this extremely painful time, and we would like everyone to keep Christine in their hearts and remember the life of an incredible human being, and revered musician who was loved universally. RIP Christine McVie.”   McVie joined Fleetwood Mac in 1970. She went on to write (and co-write) some of the band’s most memorable songs, including the Rumours classics “Don’t Stop” and “You Make Loving Fun,” as well as “Hold Me,” “Little Lies,” and “Over My Head.” Though she stuck with the band through some pretty tumultuous years, especially during the early Nineties, she left the group after their big 1998 reunion tour. After a lengthy hiatus off the stage and out of the public eye, she returned to Fleetwood Mac in 2014 and was playing with them as recently as 2019. Throughout her tenure in Fleetwood Mac, McVie almost seemed like the calm eye in the middle the storm that was the rest of the band. “That is apparently true, but I didn’t realize that at the time,” she quipped in an interview with Rolling Stone earlier this year. “Yes, I was supposedly like the Mother Teresa who would hang out with everybody or just try and [keep] everything nice and cool and relaxed. But they were great people; they were great friends. McVie was born Christine Anne Perfect on July 12, 1943, her father a concert violinist and music professor, her mother a psychic medium and faith healer. Perfect started playing piano as a child, studying classical music until she was a teenager, at which point her interests turned blues and rock and roll.  TRENDING How Trump Got Trolled by a Couple of Fascists Organ-Devouring ‘Liver King’ Blasted by Bodybuilders Over Alleged Steroid Use Christine McVie, Keyboardist and Singer for Fleetwood Mac, Dead at 79 Adam Sandler Let His Daughters Write His Gotham Awards Speech — And They Absolutely Roasted Him   She played in a variety of bands during the Sixties, forming the most notable one, Chicken Shack, with Andy Silvester and Stan Webb, in 1968. Chicken Shack released a pair of albums with Perfect — 40 Blue Fingers, Freshly Packed and Ready to Serve and O.K. Ken — and her rendition of Etta James’ “I’d Rather Go Blind” cracked the Top 20 in the U.K. in 1969.      This story is developing…    
    • My first live experience was D-A-D on April 22, 1995, at a venue which had a capacity of 6000 people. It was on their Helpyourselfish tour, and every song from that album was included on a setlist consisting of 24 songs. They were at the height of their career both musically and popularity-wise. I've seen them about 15 times, but this April night was something special.  
    • I thought you hate Synthwave. Why did you buy The Midnight?
    • shame you missed Skid Row. They were great back then 
    • Almost impossible to separate my top 10 as most could easily swap position (especially 1 & 2 !!). But I gave it a go. 1. Threshold - Dividing Lines Only just recently released but this was always going to be a huge album for me. 5 yrs since the release of Shires but the wait was worth it. This is a masterpiece in my opinion - melody, lyrics, vocals, musicianship, hooks all amazing. 2. Ghost - Imperia For a long while this was top of the pack and was definitely my most listened to album of 2022. The last 2 Ghost albums were amazing and this is no different. Great production, arrangements - this something really different and unique. Best gig of 2022 as well - their show at London O2 was stunning 3. Muse - Will of the People Biggest surprise of the year. Never would have imagined that a Muse album would feature in my best of list let alone end up no 3!! Easily their best album to date , love every track. Short at just 37 mins, but I love that. No filler, all killer album. Brilliant lyrics and subject matter as well 4. VHS Collection - Night Drive Never has an album title been so accurate. This album is made for night time driving - just an awesome vibe, brilliant songs. Top job all round 5. Alter Bridge - Pawns & Kings Monumental metal album. Dark, deep lyrically, crunching Tremonti riffs. Love it. 6 Kissin Dynamite - Not The End of the Road Another surprise for me. Never been the biggest KD fan but man they nailed it on this. Barely a filler in sight and easily the best pure melodic rock album of 2022 7. Degreed - Are You Ready Another top quality album from one of my fav bands. Really hate the song Radio though which keeps this out of the top 5 8. Dan Reed Network - Let's Hear it for the King I do dearly love this album, and agonised a bit over its placing, but the albums above are just too good. Massive return to form and I pretty much love every track with 'I See Angels' probably bring my fav ballad of 2022 9. Cats in Space - Kickstart the Sun Another album which could be top 5 on any given day. Just a couple of weaker tracks pull it down slightly but stuff like the title track & Smoke & Mirrors are top drawer. Brilliant vocals as well. 10. Iron Allies - Blood In Blood Out Late addition to my top 10 but my God this album is awesome! Best thing Reece has been on in years and old school metal album of the year imo. Just crunching metal and sensational solos. Go to gym album So now we come to honourable mentions - in no order - all v good albums in their own right : Reckless Love - excellent attempt at synthwave Chez Kane - another great 80s throwback Skid Row - Erik breaths new life into old dogs Palace - great bunch of feel good songs Crashdiet - best album since GW Treat - more great modern melodic rock Black Swan - better than the debut Ultraboss - v nice synthwave album Ronnie Atkins - Bit of a dip but still v nice Young Gun Silver Fox - best Westcoast 2022 Do there you go, 20 great albums which I would recommend. I really good year in music with a few surprises for me. 👍
    • Up until 2007 only local bands performing cover songs. 2008, my first ever international experience and it was an awesome one. It was Mr.Big's reunion tour. 
    • New video for 'LARP'. From Frontiers: Infinite & Divine, a collaboration between two Swedish musicians, guitarist/songwriter/producer Jan Åkesson and vocalist Tezzi (a/k/a Terese Persson), will release their sophomore album, "Ascendancy" on February 10, 2023.  In the summer of 2019, Jan and Tezzi first encountered one another and shortly after that set to work on writing songs for what would ultimately become their debut album, ”Silver Lining”. Said album was a fantastic combination of Jan’s energetic heavy riffs, the influences of their varied taste in melodic hard rock and metal, and Tezzi’s melodic, yet powerful vocals. "Ascendancy" sees the two taking that songwriting formula and building upon it to craft an even more thrilling and energetic album, highlighting all their strengths.  Terese "Tezzi" Persson started her musical career doing local troubadour gigs at the age of 17, but before that had already started writing her own songs and lyrics. Over the years, she has appeared in different musical projects both as a lead singer in metal and progressive rock bands, as well as doing backup vocals for various Swedish artists. In 2013, she also appeared on the second album, “Fantasmagoria,” from Epysode (featuring Mike Lepond of Symphony X, Simone Mularoni of DGM, and Tom Englund of Evergrey among others). In 2021, she partnered up with four other stunning lead vocalists in the pop metal outfit Venus 5, whose self-titled debut album was released in June 2022.  Jan Åkesson started out as a songwriter while also appearing as lead guitarist in several bands, before he decided to step back from the live scene to focus on writing and producing songs. He started the band StoneLake, who released seven studio albums, while at the same time writing songs for other artists around the world, all who were performing different styles of music. In 2017, he also released the album ”Ascension” by his solo project Shadow Rain.  The band’s music is extremely tasteful, and the listeners will enjoy very good moments with songs as “I Feel Alive” (a modern feeling similar to what can be found on AMARANTHE’s works, but with precious melodies and great vocals), the 80’s hooking melodies of “Infinite & Divine” and “Not Too Late”, the melodic Hard Rock appeal shown on “Wasteland” and “We Are One”, the tender and precious harmonies of “You and I” and “While You’re Looking for Love” (this one has the same appeal of heavier songs of DEF LEPPARD’s “Hysteria”) are the ones to become the favorite tracks for the fans. But the entire album is great, so enjoy it. - Metal Temple “Silver Lining” runs the proverbial gamut, touching upon a bevy of metal subgenres while delivering consistently memorable riffs and some pretty impressive lead work. For her part, Persson's vocals elevate much of the material here, adding a soulful, 'human' quality.... - Sonic Perspectives ‘Silver Lining’ is an absolute powerhouse of an album and well worth a listen. - Metal Planet Music Tracklisting:1.

    • First gig was Motley Crue at Birmingham NEC in 1989 with White Lion & Skid Row supporting. I was 14. My 2 uncle's took me so I knew a few weeks in advance and was listening to 'Dr Feelgood' & 'Girls, Girls, Girls' in prep. We didn't arrive in time to see Skid Row. I didn't know them at the time or thus what i was missing. This was the show were Vince through a tantrum and threw his mic into the crowd and walked off - though he/they did return to finish. https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/motley-crue/1989/nec-arena-birmingham-england-2bd7446a.html
    • Growing up in the mountains in the middle of nowhere, there was no concert scene, and only classical music was permitted to be played in my house, so it wasn't until I left for college in 1984 that I had an opportunity to see any acts... but that first year was a good one. Over that Thanksgiving break I stayed with a guy in Michigan where I got to see Armored Saint and Whitesnake opening for Quiet Riot (RIP Kevin Dubrow). The following summer back in PA I went to what is to date the biggest concert event I've ever attended: Live Aid at JFK Stadium in Philadelphia. Physically, the most miserable concert experience ever, as it was almost 100 degrees and I got dehydrated and sunburned like a mofo. That was the first time I ever saw huge video screens (where they played the acts performing at Wembley Stadium in the UK). When I went back to college that fall semester, I saw Y&T opening for Motley Crue on the Theater of Pain tour at Richfield Colisseum in Cleveland. It's both a shame and a good thing that cellphones with cameras didn't exist to capture the events... -Dan
