Great deal indeed. Did you ever buy that mini-lp set? I see them on ebay quite a lot but usually shipping from China (which i'm always wary of) and quite expensive (although probably cheaper still than eil).

Not yet... :) But i have bought TCATS and IYH Mini Lp... And the IYH is quite cool. But buying from china is no problem i havent encountered any fakes or problems whatsoever... yet :) I always send a mail to the seller before i place a bid just to check details when i order from outside europe... Just dont wanna pay shitload in shipping and find out it is a scam or something. Only downside to it is that it can take up to 3 weeks before you get what you have ordered.

Yeah i got my Cheer Up, Boys full case/artwork promo from China and it was fine, but i do see a lot of fakes from there. For instance have you seen that very dodgy looking CDR promo for LRTR with the Davey Grohlton picture on the front? Clearly fake, then i saw today EIL were selling it for £15!

Yep i have seen that and i wouldn´t pay a cent for it... Eil is always overpriced but they have a lot if yo want to pay for it... The 2cd set with the Next Year cd singles is ridiculously overpriced!!! I think i paid 6 dollars on ebay for both of them

Yep, eil are the king of overpricing. £25 for a Big Me 7", £60 for a S/T Aus Tour Edition CD and £40 for a Japanese ESP&G are just some of the bargains on their site. :rolleyes:

The one at £60 you mean? Yeah i've been tempted a couple of times but i've decided to just wait. One will come along cheaper sooner or later.

Yeah thats the one... but im bidding on a couple of other auctions if i lose all of them maybe i will spend my money on this one... :o

Also i have been looking on cassettes and i wonder if the Indonseian/malaysian are the real thing or are they cheap knockoffs? If i compare them to the Us/Eu ones they dont always look the same in coloring and design... dont want to spend my money on bad copys... Any experience on this matter?

Yeah i've seen them a lot, i think they are legit, because those countries are behind the Western world in terms of CD's so they're the only countries still producing cassettes. I could be wrong but i don't think they've pressed US/Europe cassettes since TINLTL.

I know lots of Nirvana collectors and they have tons of legit Indonesian/Indian/Malaysian cassettes so i'd say they're real and pressed by those countries themselves.

You are probably right cause on ebay i havent seen other than the three first albums on US/EU cassette...
I think im going to take a chance and order one at least just to see if it is anything to put my money on... I was in vietnam recently and i thaught i should find some cassette store but the only thing i found in music was places to refill your ipod and a Eagles CD... But no cassettes. Only fake cd´s...

Haha, christ. If you want that though, this place has it for a reasonable price: http://www.vinylexchange.co.uk/Produ...&IID=11655 13 and postage to Europe is only £3 from what i can see. :)

EDIT: Was it you who won the Aussie My Hero standard case CD? Went one dollar over my max bid!

No it wasnt... it went 10 dollars over my max bid. Couldn´t afford to go further right now... im bidding at alot of stuff and this wasn´t top priority at the moment :) I´ll wait and see if another one pops up... But i won breakout vinyl single yesterday for a lot more money than its worth but i had to have it :)

Simon March 1st 2009 02:54 PM

Re: Your latest Foo item?!
 
Ahh yeah i need to stop bidding on things again, getting carried away. I need to prioritise on things that don't appear very often, so the expensive vinyl can wait, they're always up. Think i'll leave the MiniLPs aswell for now.
