Notes

This counterfeit release is a better-than-average pressing for an unofficial release and close to the sound quality of the original pressing, which was not the best to begin with. Many people who purchased this bootleg thinking it was the original did so because this bootleg was designed to look exactly like the original, so people who had never seen an original in person had no frame of reference when they saw this bootleg. And many sellers who did not know the difference either advertised it as an original or preyed on unsuspecting buyers with deceptive listings.

All of the bootlegs I remember seeing had "promo" printed on the label. You can also tell the difference between the original official issue and this bootleg by the look of the vinyl quality, the stamper and the paper quality of the label when held side-by-side with an original. The fidelity of the original is also better when compared to the bootleg side-by-side on high-end equipment.

There are also copies that have a plain white label......the ones with the "promo" printed on them are even rarer as there were only a handful made with the printing on the label.

This bootleg came out around 2002 and only 100 were pressed.
The way to tell the difference between the boot and the regular version (apart from the run out grooves,above info is correct-but boot also has 'family tree' on one side and 'disco' etched in the skye side) is the boot has the word "promo" (in black) printed on the white label.
The original promo label was plain white. Sticker on cover is same on both and cover itself is very similar,but original inside is white and boot is white and speckled inside and is slightly thinner card than original.
The boot does sound good but not as good as the original. It sounds as if it's have been eq'd slightly and has less stereo also when a/b 'd.
