It is always enjoyable putting one's hands on a repress when the original record reaches three-digit prices and the "Limited Edition" bonus adds up to the feeling of owning a copy nearly as much rare as the original for a more affordable cost, the climax for these "reissued and remastered" copies being reached with the limited number. But a repress rarely pops up with only one series and we often have different colors for these represses, each being labelled "Limited Edition" (the average is 100 copies for colored records and 200 for the classic black ones).
Moreover, the element "proving" the record's supposed rarity is the printed number on a sticker on the backcover, something everyone should be able to counterfeit as opposed to records with a number stamped on the back. As far as I'm concerned I just happened to have 2 different numbers for the same record, which tarnishes the image of labels dealt with the repressing process. It's really a pity this major drawback doesn't seem to have been noticed thus far on the Italo-Disco stage when we know the price range for the most sought-after records, the represses' numbering leaving the impression of a haphazard work.
For this pink edition for instance as with many more the sticker with the number was separated and had thus to be stuck on the back. Nothing really indicates the record is that limited.
Hopefully this comment will be of interest for the companies implicated in this business...
