Not On Label ‎– CS1
Vinyl, LP, Compilation, Unofficial Release


Unofficial compilation conceived by some collector as a private pressing. Only 18 copies were made with full artwork. However, at least one test pressing seems to exist.

Record actually pressed in France with white labels and printed square stickers on them which seal the centre hole until the record is played for the first time.

No release info is mentioned anywhere on cover nor labels apart from band / track names. Cat. No. taken from run off groove.

this could not be considered a 'release', this is not a record: it is only a game or a fake. i don't care if who published this record did it for passion or for business: nobody can decide to publish music that was created and belongs to other people without ask them an authorization. it's not a matter of 16 or 16.000 copies, it is a matter of respect for the pople that composed, recorded and released this tracks. the guys of small labels who repress some lost gem of passed music, spend a lot of time and money to contact the bands, the producers, the owners of the rights (if they are correct people). and very often they obtain the permission for free or in exchange with few copies: are they just stupid?

Where is this available? Why press 18 copies? I'm searching for one track on here and it's awesome so I assume they are all just as good, unfortunately all the youtube links are broken to the right so I can't preview. Trying to find this on a dl site but the name is so vague that too much gets pulled up.

In my opinion this is not a good deal: no rights, no authorization, no copies to the guys that conceived and played the songs... It's easy to make records this way, but it's not correct and respectful. If you only need the music, you can easily download it from the web: this is only a collector's item done without any authorization.

This record is clearly unofficial but the sound of every track is just perfect!! A professionally pressed record, it seems like a lot of love was put into it as the artwork seems to be done manually (hand glued cover, square stickers on blank factory record labels, black diecut innersleeve). Reminds me of the DIY pressings of the 80s. A compilation of awesome, rare tracks in the minimal synth style whose original releases are impossible to find or just expensive as hell. Two of them didn't even exist on vinyl before, as they were released on a rare compilation tape only. This one is a must!!

Great unofficial compilation. Good selection of discs expensive and VHTFDC (Very Hard To Find De Los Cojones!!!!!).Essential!
Wonderful proposal available to all budgets.
The question is: When is the second part? Hopefully not later.
