Default New Greatest Hits CD!?!

WTF is this? Only two on eBay, both from Russia. Is this legit?

Skeptical because there was NO word about it

Highly doubt that it's legit. It's coming from Russia...that should tell you enough.

That's what I thought. It looks good though. Here's the other one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/181695061312...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

I'm kinda interested in Marigold - doubt it's the live version from S&B.

Yeah, that's an illegal copy of something that doesn't exist.

"Greatest Hits"

"Erase/Replace"

Yeah, no. Russian bootleg as others have said, not the first and won't be the last.

An even nicer looking one - semi styled on the road cases front and rear.
FOO FIGHTERS B-Sides & Rarities 2CD Digipak BOX Demo Dave Grohl Nirvana SEALED
www.ebay.com/itm/181695048858

Note these are NOT CDR's - true bootlegs in every way and credit where it's due these are both good looking. This is a proper bootleg business - not amateurs. Still fake - but more old school. Not condoning it at all, totally illegal but this is what is made in the Russian Republic states all the time.

Random thought - what makes Miss the Misery a b-side or rarity?

So I was thinking, it's been three studio albums since the Greatest Hits album and I think they will need at least four before a Greatest Hits Volume 2 could be released. But what are the chances of it one day happening ? I know that Dave wasn't keen on the first Greatest Hits release but it would be in the record company's interest. However, I wouldn't want them to do what Green Day have just done with their second Greatest Hits album in having almost half of the songs on it already on their first Greatest Hits album. I think it would be better if it was only songs that have come out since the first Greatest Hits. The track listing being possibly as follows, in chronological order unlike the last Greatest Hits, the biggest hits of the era:

Rope
Walk
These Days
Something from Nothing
Congregation
Outside
Saint Cecilia
Run
The Sky is a Neighborhood...
... subsequent singles from C & G and next album...

You could include more from Wasting Light I suppose, Arlandria, White Limo or Bridge Burning for example

Greatest hits records, do we need them?

I can see how it was useful back when you had to buy records to listen to music. It was a nice way to collect the most selling records and make a presentation of of a band for new listeners. But these days a playlist would be just as useful. I really do not see the point of greatest hits albums anymore.

Not that I need or want a Greatest Hits record but there are still people out there who buy and collect vinyls and Cds. Yeah maybe not as many as there were 10 years ago but still - not everyone want to go 100% digital.

Agree basically, but remember, now many bands realize, to maximize sales, they have to include new songs on greatest hits releases. We got Wheels and Word Forward on the last one.

With the way music is now greatest hit cds are almost pointless, anyone can download a list of songs they like and add it to their own GH playlist.

Like you say, new songs on GH cds help sales but to be honest I’d buy a new FF cd with or without new songs on it!

having had no word about it is your hint to its legitimacy, even the real GH album that wasn't something the band was totally into got massive publicity and 2 brand new songs.
