No basis for any of this other than what I've seen and what I know has sold in the last 10 or so years, also assuming your copy is genuine and not one of the recent bootlegs, which it would be if you have owned it more than 2 years or so.
Mine is genuine. I purchased it from my local record store right when it came out. It still has their price sticker on it. Thanks for the info!

I've been thinking about getting a fake TCATS LP.. Just because it's an obvious fake

But I don't wanna pay TOO much though..

well, even if it's cheap, you could spend that money on a cheaper official item.

I've seen some promos around for not much, I got a TCATS advance cd that cost me $11 with shipping included, nice deal me thinks...

Well, I've got 3 versions of TCATS:

- Regular CD
- 10th Anniversary CD
- TCATS 2CD

& soon: TCATS Cassette.

But there's something about those fake LP's.. Of course I still want the real one (I might buy it in a couple of weeks)

number is: 7243 8 23127 2 7

I see. I'm not sure I've seen that around.

For those interested, the Aus TINLTL 2cd is on ebay for only £7 at the moment, that's really cheap. Though it doesn't seem to have the card sleeve (probably why it's cheap).

how can someone decide to buy a rare item without bothering a check on its authencity? the FIRST thing he would find out is that it wasn't pressed on any different color than the regular black.

and it had TWENTY bids!

amazing...

Be super careful if you are watching it. Having read the thread on the posts here this morning its clear you dont all know what is what with these.

There is the AUS tour 2CD version 72434-93388-2-1
This has the light blue cover
There is the DUTCH 2CD version 72438-23127-2-7
This has the standard darker blue cover.

Both have the same second CD

To make matters even more complicated there were quite a number of the Dutch pressed 2CD versions imported and sold new in Australia and New Zealand. So buying an Australian sold 2CD set isnt actually confirming anything at all about what you might end up with. So bid accordingly.
