You would think if a person booted the Keel library, at least they would copy from a cd. I just don't understand why Ron has not re-released these like the Right to Rock? It is about time. ~C

Ron and the band are working on getting the whole back catalog reissued, and also releasing a live cd from their last tour of japan plus alot of other things.......He is quite pissed over the Greek Bootleg as well as the one "century-moon" is selling......But actually with them being in other countries there is not alot he can do about it.......But like you said, the least they could of done was recorded it........

Well, advise him to sign up for eBay VERO program and to terminate every bootleg auction! It is very easy and the most effective method of fighting back the bootlegs, as none of the power sellers would risk the chance of getting their hefty accounts permanently suspended.

 

Once he signs up for the program then he can authorize someone else to monitor eBay for him, if he is busy traveling, but he needs to do it, because once the market gets presaturated with the bootlegs it would be pointless of re-releasing them at all.

What gives this guy away is he is selling a Keel-s/t,Final Frontier,Badlands-s/t,Spread Eagle-s/t,and PAntera-Power Metal cd every other day.There is no way he has enough of those originals to sell 3 to 4 a week.He also has the indie Dixie Chicks CDs from the early 90's that are rare,and rare Chris LeDoux CD's from the 80's,and it's the same way,he is selling them every other day!

He doesn't ship to Canada, who the F**k doesn't ship to Canada. Germany, France and Italy are also on his list non shipping countries. Yet he will ship to Poland and Mexico, which are countries that even Canada Post has advised me not to ship to because the postmen like to keep other peoples mail.

 

The item photos look legit. Although having 2 or 3 Spread Eagle and Badlands up at the same time is just plain stupid and gives me a bad feeling about the seller.

 

He also doesn't ship to Canada and for that kiss my :butt:

Damn is it me, or am i the only one being totally screwed over lately on ebay........Another Seller who just burned my ass is "dkthompson".......I bought a copy of "Giuffria-s/t" from him......I received it yesterday, when i open the package it was severely not as described......It was listed as mint, yet the booklet and tray card were "waffled" as if they have been wet, the cd was dirty and all scratched to hell........When i contacted the seller i get the "cd was perfect when it left me, it must of got wet during shipping" .....So in all fairness i look at the package, as i figured, no sign of being wet, no stains on the envelope etc......So i jsut said to hell with it and filed a paypal claim.........what is it with people......From now on i am only dealing with people i know and have done business with before......

 

 

As far as the pic looking legit.....Oh yeah it does, till you receive it and you see what a horrible blurry mess it is........

I just send him the question what kind of bullshitter he is by saying too many parcels got lost in Germany ! Crap ! In my life only one parcel - a DVD - got lost over here.

He should better check some other things. :ahole:

I have a question. If the Century Moon cd's are boots than how do you tell??? I purchased both the S/T and the Final Frontier albums from them. The cover art looks great and like it is the original. On the disks themselves, the printing is perfect with the MCA logo and on the inner ring of the disk it reads the numbers from the MCA catalog on them. Do I have an original or not??? Looks pretty legit to me. As far as the sound, I agree with Dan that all the Keel albums kind of sound "muddy" with the production.

I just came across this "century-moon" seller on Ebay today. Looks like he found a ton of "used" Spread Eagle - S/T, Keels, Badlands - S/T and Pantera - Power Metal cd's in Thailand. <_<

 

Chad - That is interesting regarding the Keel cd's you received. I always thought the rule of thumb on a boot was the number on the inner ring of the disc would be different. If it's fake it must be pretty darn good.

 

And on a side note, it appears txbuffalo2 has been selling the same cd's as century-moon so I wonder what the connection is there.

I thought this seller's name sounded familiar. I bought I copy of Keel - The Final Frontier from him a couple months ago. And I too was skeptical about the disc...it looked alright, but something about the inserts...they looked just a tad "fuzzy", plus they didn't fit the jewel case (a little short, both the front & back). I just contacted him a told him that my copy I received from him was a boot, & that either he could refund my money or I'd file a fraud claim with my credit card company. I'll post any response I get from him.

    • I try to give albums a proper go before I write them off. Closest I would say would be cats In Space Atlantis. Narnia was SO good that my expectations were extremely high and the album was average on first couple of listens. I let it go for a few months, then came back to it with anopen mind and loved it. Otherwise I can probably pick songs. God Of Thunder I didn't like for many many years and eventually it grew on me.  
    • I left this comment on the promo for "Flames," and I feel like it applies to every song I've heard from this project so far, too:  "Great song, great singer, but I feel like the compression of the production takes away from the quality of the songwriting and puts a damper on Ken's playing."
    • Vain, yes it's one band i never really got into it. Just last week I spent about 30 mins listening to their most popular songs, I dont know what it is but the songs dont do much for me. But i do like one of their songs a lot 'No tears for you', and Whisper is pretty good too. And a few I do like to some degree, that's about it. 
    • Listening to it now (I know I'm late)... Some starter notes, that have no doubt been mentioned here already, but I didn't read through the whole thread: -Production is overdone. I don't know why, when Tobias Lindell had done such a masterful job mixing their last few records, he would do this?  -I've always liked H.E.A.T better with Kenny than with Erik. Not because I think Kenny is a better singer by any stretch (though I do think Kenny's voice is underrated when comparisons of the two inevitably arise), but for the same reason I prefer Danger Danger with Ted Poley to Paul Laine. Kenny's voice is, to me, part of the sound of H.E.A.T and I felt like it was missing the longer Erik was the vocalist with the band, even though 3/4 of the records they did with him were phenomenal. -For the first time, I feel like H.E.A.T doesn't know where they're going. On previous records, there was a distinct direction they were clearly striving for -- the original self-titled album and Freedom Rock were clearly products of their influences and the albums that followed with Erik Gronwall showed the growth and maturity of their playing, songwriting and the budding production skills of Jonah Tee. But I can't figure out if Force Majeure is meant to be a step forward or a step back. I wouldn't go so far as to say that any of the songs are bad, but there's not a single banger present here, as far as I'm concerned, which I was not expecting. -I also feel like this is the first time you can really hear Eric Rivers's absence since he left the band after Tearing Down the Walls. Into the Great Unknown being an anomaly altogether guitar wise and H.E.A.T II being a phenomenal return to the stage for Dave Dalone, Force Majeure is the first time I've really thought to myself, "Man, there could really be another guitar track here," which might be why they felt the need to compensate with the over-the-top production?   All in all, is it bad? No, I wouldn't go that far. But as far as H.E.A.T albums go, it falls extremely short of the ridiculously high standard they've set for themselves over the course of their career.   But hey, it's better than Into the Great Unknown.
    • Yeah, a few times. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to all the hype. 
    • Ok the title was clickbait, first dislike and then later like would be more accurate but hey, you clicked on the topic, so it worked! 😬
    • As a few others mentioned, musically it isn't too far off from their early material, but the song itself doesn't do much for me unfortunately.   In watching the video it looks like they've got a new drummer.
    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).
