Just picked up a copy of this on red vinyl from a record fair. It's got the white and black A/B labels and the Made in Europe info on the back cover so I don't think it's the US RSD pressing. Repress of this boot?

So I picked this up yesterday not realizing it's not an official copy. IMO it's still of good quality (I don't have our have have not heard an official one). Sound quality is decent with the exception of Darling Nikki which was likely sourced from an MP3. No pops or cracks. It is not warped. It may not be legit, but my copy at least was well made.

I also have such a copy, but I think, the outer and inner sleeve is very professional. Outer sleeve is glossy and sharp, also the inner sleeve is sharp. It is delivered in an extra white inner sleeve (to avoid eam split on the printed one), also really professionalI. It is really clear, that this is an unofficial version?

So yeah this counterfeit had me fooled. Its quite good. I think they used the CD as master and the reason Darling nikki sounds shitty is because it wasnt on the cd release, they probably used a mp3 or something.

I bought a copy of this a while back to do a review of the quality and it finally arrived today. I don't own an original copy (which is part of why I bought this version) so unfortunately I am unable to do a direct comparison. Overall, it's pretty good for a bootleg. There's sometimes a notable lack of clarity during loud parts of songs where there's a lot going on and the sound quality noticeably degrades as the sides go on, but those things are typically to be expected from unofficial releases. The only thing really poor about it is the packaging-- the outer sleeve, inner sleeve, and record itself are the flimsiest I have ever seen. Overall, while the sound quality is passable, I wish I put the $30 I spent on it towards an original copy instead.

Has anyone played a copy of the unofficial vinyl? I just want it to play not collect so does it sound the same as the RSD original but the quality of the packaging isn't as good or what's the deal? Many thanks

Could somebody please add good pictures of this version and how can it be recognized from the original, when not in hand? Is it really just the minor matrix variation? That makes it hard when it's being sold sealed... :-/
