I've a bootleg CD of this and while the audio quality is very good, it's clearly ripped from vinyl. I've been trying to find an authentic Atlantic CD for years but without success. Does anyone know of a boot that's definitely a CD rip or even have an original they'd be willing to copy for me?

At one time a hugely sought after release, Y Kant Tori Read was the name of both the band fronted by Tori Amos and their only album.

Because of the rarity of actual copies of the album, countless bootleg versions have been released; so much so that, in the mid 90's, an online FAQ explaining the differences between all of the bootlegs was created.

There are three commercial versions available: A 12" album (non picture disc,) a CD and a cassette. The best way to tell if you have a legitimate copy of the CD release is that the disc is silver with black text and a red ring around the outside. To date, the cassette and vinyl have not been bootlegged, with the exception of a picture disc vinyl released around 2000, which is very much a bootleg.

There are two promotional versions of the album; one one cassette, and one on 12" vinyl. The vinyl has a gold promo info stamp on the front, whereas the cassette has promo information printed directly onto the insert. Often times the promotional version of the vinyl has a cutout mark in the upper lefthand corner.

Ironically, non-promotional versions of the 12" vinyl are much rarer to find than the promo version. This is because so few albums sold that most of the commercial versions were shipped back to the record label, given a cut-out and/or promo stamp, and re-shipped as promos.
