Ya, seems he uses downloaded pictures. Check out Big Bang Babies or NVC pictures for example - they show the old eBay watermark under the current one, so they had been downloaded from previous eBay auctions...

Who is this guy ? Would be interesting to know.

the seller's actually selling alegitimate copy of stage dolls - commandos and not the bootleg u.s pressing. :)

 

Just to correct you, there WAS an official U.S release of "Commandos" on Big-Time records therefore not all U.S releases of it are bootlegs. This is a fact, according to the band members & their manager (who I contacted to confirm the legitimacy of my copy).

i would email him and ask for references

 

Maybe he is a vendor and all those are the new Restrospect Releases 80esmetalcolelctor hasd been raving about recently :)

 

 

Ironically , Sam is currently in negotiations with a number of those bands...

 

He will be announcing a monstrous 27 releases within 2 weeks. Some real gems including Mariah , Manila Thrills and tons more. I think a lot of collectors and H.H. regulars are going to crap their pants. I know I did. I find it amazing that he will have released over 110 titles in 5 months. Who else is doing that? :banger:

 

As far as this thread goes , I'd be very wary of anyone selling apparent originals of all those discs with 0 feedback. I won't be bidding.

This wouldn't possibly be our lil buddy Arwine selling some of his toys would it? <_<

 

Scratch that.....this seller appears to be in Minnesota ;)

 

I messaged him and asked him this:

 

Do you happen to have REAL pics of these cd's you are selling and NOT ones copied off the internet? The eBay watermark is on the pics from the original times they were posted, and copied and now reposted.

Oh, & this guy doesn't accept paypal. How many more red flags could there be?

 

This is exciting news on Retrospect, I particularly like the fact he puts soundbytes of the albums on his site. I have never heard of most of these Indies, so to get some soundclips is great. Have heard a lot of good things about Manila Thrills...

Wouldn't touch it with somebody elses bargepole. Somebody just happens to be selling a load of extreemly rare stuff as the first thing s/he sells. How on earth did they come across all this stuff? Just happened to rifle through their collection and found they had a few rarities?

More red flags than a busload of Chinese patriots

 

Can you spot all 10?

 

(answers below)

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Too good to be true titles

2. Paypal not accepted

3. Zero feedback

4. Only been on eBay since Jan 9, 2006

5. Exorbiant shipping costs

6. Scans are copied from the web

7. 3-day listings: indicates quick cash grab

8. Use of the words "mint condition copy"- later

justifiable if selling a "copy" and not the original.

9. Nothing in the auction ad to deny/repute the CDs

are burned copies or bootlegs.

10. We don't know him/her/it here on Heavy Harmonies.

rest assured tim, a few sellers have confirmed stage dolls - commandos 's u.s pressing on big time is indeed a bootleg pressed in sweden.

 

anyone here recall seeing a website from a few years that did state stage dolls - commandos having never been pressed on cd according to label or someone connected to the label?

Hi there.If you look at Stage Dolls homepage.www.stagedolls.com.And look under

Biography you will find that the Commandos cd WAS realeased in the U.S on the BIgTime Records label.Should the information on the official band site be wrong?

Perhaps the sources who says it´s a bootleg have more information than the band

itself.

Take a look on www.stagedolls.com.

But with the large amount of Commandos floating around on Ebay right now,of course you get suspicious.

Hi guys,

 

I got a reply from this seller:

 

"Hi there!

This is a proper factory pressed CD not a cd-r.

The label is Big time.

Best wishes/Per"

 

Who of you is going to be the first to order ??

 

:P

Yep. I contacted the band & their Manager (as I have a U.S copy on CD & wanted to find out if it was legitimate). The band confirmed it was official & they took royalties from the U.S pressing, which verifies it as an official release IMO. I suggest various people check their facts before making totally unfounded statements about CD's.

 

That said, there are a LOT of bootleg copes of this U.S version (which has superior packaging & was remastered) floating around. Several people have P.M'd me for scans & codes from mine to check the authenticity of the copies being sold.

    • That song is...actually really good, lol. The main riff sounds like it could have been on Kill 'Em All and Hetfield's voice is in surprisingly great shape. My only gripe is the drumming, which...well, yeah, there's nothing we can do about that 
    • Well, at least they're being honest now.
    • Looking forward to giving this a listen tonight. 
    • Ezzakly. I was having this conversation with my friend this weekend. It took us a while, but we're finally building up our football program. I believe that has a lot to do with the amount of immigrants we've had. They move to Canada and have no love for hockey; they wanna play football. Wish this had happened decades ago. My folks never let me play hockey, because it's so bloody expensive, but there wasn't a decent football program. 
    • I think I recall listening to one of their albums. Don't they have a Southern Rock/Country vibe? Or maybe I'm just reading into their name, which makes me think of Brad Paisley.

    • Photo credit: Tim Saccenti Metallica dropped an atomic bomb this morning, announcing the brand new album 72 Seasons and sharing the first single, “Lux Æterna”. “Lux Æterna” is old school thrash, picking right up where Hardwired… to Self-Destruct left off, only this time, guitarist Kirk Hammett was involved in the writing. 72 Seasons will be available April 14, 2023, via the band’s own Blackened Recordings. Produced by Greg Fidelman with founding members James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, and clocking in at over 77 minutes, the 12-track album is Metallica’s first full length collection of new material since 2016’s Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. Here’s the track listing for 72 Seasons: 01. 72 Seasons 02. Shadows Follow 03. Screaming Suicide 04. Sleepwalk My Life Away 05. You Must Burn! 06. Lux Æterna 07. Crown Of Barbed Wire 08. Chasing Light 09. If Darkness Had A Son 10. Too Far Gone? 11. Room Of Mirrors 12. Inamorata “72 seasons. The first 18 years of our lives that form our true or false selves,” said Hetfield of the album’s title. “The concept that we were told ‘who we are’ by our parents. A possible pigeonholing around what kind of personality we are. I think the most interesting part of this is the continued study of those core beliefs and how it affects our perception of the world today. Much of our adult experience is reenactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry.”   https://bloody-disgusting.com/music/3741721/metallica-returns-with-new-album-single-and-tour/
