This is what i was saying the other day on here , that unsuspecting newbies to the scene get told how rare the records and are buying a few as what they think is an investment

not knowing that ebay is full of bootlegs and pressings/reissues

and its only when they come to try and sell them they realise they are worthless this in turn must drive them away !

a few years ago i sent a message to a girl who was trying to sell Lee Roye Tears on british MCA for £150 when i told her she was really abusive and asked WTF do you know ?

His Ebay name is ThomasWednesday

He should change in to Bjorn Yesterday !

Even the real ones are common now, they turned up by the boxload in that big find of a decade ago, I was buying one copy every month off the one US seller for $50 a time, I think they still have them though the price is higher than that though. All were demo copies.

anyone seen that "escrow" boot of the carl hall 45 selling for a bunch of money? I think part of it was that it looked like a real 70s label and not some crappy bootleg. The auction was pretty clear that it was not OG though.

This is an extremely rare record and plays perfectly, it's in very good condition without any visible screeches, the surface is a little dirty but the record plays beautifully,

Dont forget the OTT desciption on this UK re issue!!

HB Barnum - Heartbreaker - UK Capitol 1975 issue.

Nearly as funny as the Jackie Edwards - I feel so bad on here for £475 this week

Ouch.

I do see someone selling a boot of The Triumphs "Coming to your rescue" that they bought because it was described/pictured as "original" though, wonder how much that'll fetch eh Pete. :g::thumbsup:

I am going to put this here because i don't know the record

but i do know that Stardust is a common reissue label

http://www.ebay.co.u...=item2a18002933

I think it's the first pressing of an album cut onto a 45, so it's slightly different than 45s being booted. It is the first way the song is available on 45. also, stardust was legit I think so it also wouldn't be a bootleg in that sense. Here is the record btw:

I'm not saying it's a boot , just that most of the stardust pressings seem to be still available !

That's crazy, you can get the proper LP for not too much more than that, and that's packed with superb tunes as well - one of the best albums you'll ever buy IMO.

Andy he's not interested, he is actually a member on here and was selling records on here yesterday, look for collection of G & W Motown demos, same seller. Been told about it before but has never responded as far as I know. Should not be allowed to use the word original when it's blatantly not.

I would report it to Ebay but they don't give a crap either and it takes sooooooo long to do it !

ebay doesn't have a way to determine whether it's a bootleg or not. they would only take action if you were the copyright owner yourself and used their VERO program to report items.

on the other hand, you should definitely report sleazy listing practices like overcharging on shipping, keyword spamming, and that stupid belgium dude who lists unbuyable items as ads for his store.
