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.

    • 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/      
    • I thought of this one today for some reason.  I'm sure everyone here is familiar with "Talking Heads - Psycho Killer" from '77, a very strange track in it's own right, but does anyone here remember the 1980 parody track "Psycho Chicken" by "The Fools"?
