This is a little off topic, but I purchased two White Label Promo LPs from Japan that I immediately had suspicions about after I received them. I had been duped! I collect Japanese pressings and I am picky about them having everything that was included with the original item, including the OBI, the insert and whatever else was released with the original Pressing. The seller, who claimed that the LPs were being shipped from Japan, actually shipped them from Poland. Basically I concluded that the seller, who was selling on MusicStack at the time was listing his company as being in Japan, had purchased the empty sleeves that even had the original OBI for the Japanese pressings along with the red 3 character sample striker on the back cover. They both had the insets with them as well. I think the seller removed the labels from the easier and cheaper to acquire EU pressings and printed the actual paper LP stickers. He probably had the LPs and copied the label from his own, then printed them out on sticky paper. This was in 2010 or so, but I finally got to looking at both of the LPs and discovered that the matrix was off with both of my alleged Japanese Promo issues and I finally realized that both LPs were indeed EU pressings, not Japanese pressings.

I’ve seen record label sheets for sale on eBay in the past as well, it’s not uncommon for these to be made as computer especially as graphics are much better now. What really got me to start looking at these was that the package arrived from a Japanese address with a “Care of ...... from Poland” on the box. That was my first clue something was wrong. So I’m guessing that he purchased the sleeves and used the same shipping box they were sent to him in from the Japanese seller, then replaced the labels with computer copies. I noticed they looked “off” as well. They where identical to what is pictured on the LPs on this site, but the printing wasn’t as sharp looking as it should have been. They where listed as NM in condition and either the vinyl was poor or he just purchased the sleeves.

What really ticked me off was I paid entirely too much for them. They sounded fine, but I was ripped off basically by a scam. It’s just unbelievable how much effort that some people will put into making a few extra dollars on this type of “bait and switch” scheme. So now I buy from reputable sources only and generally from the same Japanese sellers I’ve built a good relationship with as sellers of authentic Japanese issues.

Another thing you really have to watch are Test Pressings. I have a couple of them that are actually the real thing, but before buying these, make sure to ask for matrix photos and check them against the listings here, if it’s listed. A friend of mine purchased a Pink Floyd - The Wall “Test Pressing” that someone had done the same thing as I described above to a newer US repressed copy. He paid over $300 USD for this set in a plain white gatefold jacket and the seller had just removed the center labels and put white labels on the center of each LP! It’s actually really easy to just write “Test Pressing” on an LP with a sharpie and pass it off as something it’s actually not! This was purchased on eBay and the guy doing it had a rubber stamp made that said “TEST PRESSING” and Pink Floyd was written in sharpie on the label. He had printed a sticker for the outer cover that looked like a studio label that test pressings often use. Each track was listed as well as each side in a chart. It was a good Fake! It’s turned out this guy was passing off many desirable LP fakes as Test Pressings. I think he’s been banned from selling on eBay, but there are ways around that as well.

Just passing along some expensive experiences that both my friend and myself have encountered with something that most people wouldn’t even think about. It’s hard to screw with the matrix, and I guess these people who are looking to rip off collectors who aren’t that experienced with vinyl think that the buyer will never think to look up the matrix as it’s the true way to identify most pressings.

This seems to be the same as Specials* - Specials according to the label photos. The track listing shown on this page is not aligned with the labels on the photos.

Might have to get this as my 2009 Chrysalis reissue is very noisy. Not a good repress job on that one.

Compilation cd/dvd by the English skagroep that in the late 1980s became known with songs like Ghost Town and A Message To Rudy. The dvd collects video clips and live recordings (among other things at Top Of The Pops).
