Beat you all - I listed it on Discogs in 2011 (my copy is the pics). And I knew about it for almost a decade before that. One of the rarer releases for sure.

One of the best deals ever.

Got it for 10 or so I believe. Talk about a solid investment.

let me get this right: the CD was a limited press to 5 units, yet at least 6 people own it?

Pressing quantities are always vague. Who knows how many were really made?

Discogs lists 5 owners. I think most of the owners are on this board.

How did you get to 6?

Funny thing is, that Discogs lists a "last sold" on 24 Apr 17. For 12,89!!!

That's cheap.

Yeah I assumed there's at least 6 owners, because 5 people own it and one's on ebay for an insane amount of money

Made sense how you figured 6. I wrote the entire discogs entry and I was deliberately obscure since I did not have hard facts, but I have pretty good information that 100 copies were pressed and a large number (way more than half of that) were recovered and destroyed.

Everyone that states actual numbers is just full of BS and trying to sell their item (which is prob fair enough but still BS).

And whoever sold that copy on Discogs is a dipshit - could it not be ANY clearer that the damn thing is VERY valuable

It's a FRENCHMAN !!

INSIDE STORY... it is secretly Alban... he's selling off all of his Foo Fighters collection to fund his new Rick Astley obsession

My copy was in a bunch of 11 or so promo CD's that I bought for $19 in 2003 - so I paid a bit less than $2 for it.
