I believe the CD exists yes. But I am beginning to think it is getting pirated and some of the copies sold may not be the real thing. They are selling for such stupid prices it isn't hard to imagine fakes being made, and the steady supply of copies is starting to look wrong to me.

That's what I was thinking. There suddenly seems to be a lot of them.

At least with the Jap one I bought I KNOW it's genuine because I know where it came from - have a good relationship with a record store owner from when I lived over there ten years ago and I always buy my Jap stuff from him, he alerts me when stuff comes in that he thinks I'll like and holds it for me until I say yes or no (now that is service). He's never once sold me a dud, and I don't think he ever would because it's not in his interests to do so

And the trouble with fake CDRs is you'd need one or maybe two copies of the real thing next to them to ever know you had a fake. Media and paper / colours etc would be the only way to tell for sure. I'm happy letting them all go - especially while there are still real items I don't have to look / save for.

Like you say the Japanese not only make the best quality CD's but by their very culture they just don't do that sort of thing anyway, or at least it would be very rare. Nobody in business survives long ripping people off, but in Japan you'd suffer ten times more.

How strange, my OBI strip is none of those - it's this one:

The CD was sealed when I bought it (in Japan), but has since been opened and it's in a new dust bag now - so that image of the obi is a scan I've just done myself

Now I got all 4 special mags on Foo (of which I'm aware, maybe there's more, who knows...): 2 Metal Hammers (2005 and 2008), NME and now Kerrang. Couldn't be happier...

Ok you are right - this is getting weird - mine is definitely exactly like the OBI in the link I posted - with the Exhausted cover on the OBI spine. I am guessing one is the first press limited edition and the other the standard first release, and the third later one is the low price re-issue. Which is which of our two is probably held in the extra / lesser text on the right of the OBI in Japanese.

I will send them off to the buy I know in Japan and see if he can tell me any more.

I'm wondering if the 97 * 7 * 4 on mine is a date. Though I'm sure I bought it in 96. Could be wrong though

Oh yes - that is the original release date - all the Japanese CD's have them, but when the cat number doesn't change they retain the same details - its a repressing but the same release, so it doesn't give the total "true" info but it does say it is the first release (just not which pressing).

I've put you a bit wrong there - the 95 # 9 on the spine is the original release date. Whether that means the Japanese CD came out in 97 or the one with one emblem is in fact the first press I don't know. Its another one that needs more investigation to clear up.

God I've been dying to say that about someone else's collecting
