Correct - but they are extremely well done (double sleeves, quality material, etc - just as they would have been done), and they fill the holes in the PSB catalogue that never did / should have a CD Single. I have all the ones this group have produced and they are well worth getting.

In other words, if it wasn't a rip off, it would worth it.

The eBay prices are high. You can pick them up for more reasonable prices via Discogs

OK,thanks for the tips!
So bad that now I´m not sure if the rest of the well known items this seller have (i.e. many well known promo CDs) are the real think or faked copies! :( I was thinking on buy some I´m missing...

So you have no reproductions in your life ? No art prints ?! No digital files ?!?.

There is a difference between a fake that tries to be passed off as genuine, and something that wouldn't otherwise exist.

I remember when we all tried to get hold of the Aurally CDs to fill the gaps in our listening enjoyment. As a seasoned collector, I have nearly everything ever issued now and can rip my own vinyl to make CD singles if I wanted, but I'd never be able to make them as well as these.

I'm happy owning them, knowing that they are not genuine issues. It's all part of the art of collecting.

It would be sad if principles were so rigid that no one felt that they could listen to bootlegs and compilations and deny themselves that pleasure - especially when so much early stuff is still only (officially) on vinyl and many threw their decks away long ago.

I used to made holefillers by myself for my collection. I was happy with quality too. But later all went to a bin. And I would't definitelly buy fake cd-r for £50! Even more they're not fair enought to describe those cd-r as fake or fanmade, all are described as UK promo CDs. Zero value for me.

I must say, if the disc is not a CD-R and the sleeve artwork has been faithfully replicated (either same artwork or a variation thereof), then I don't have a major issue with it. I would take issue if people tried to pass it off as a legit (promo or commercial) release. Now, in the case of the Aurally CDs, we all knew these to be boots - but they were well done and contained mixes that were otherwise unavailable on CD. Yes, they're all marked up to look like legitimate promos and all that, but as collectors we're all in the know. This Heart "Remix" CD doesn't look like a CD-R. Thing is, if you're going to try and duplicate something that already exists, make sure you spell words correctly.

They are not CD-Rs.

I just find them as collectible as other stuff.

So they are factory pressed silver cd's, not cdr's.

I would have them, just not interested in the ebay or discogs prices. I will probably throw an offer in at some point.

And what about the sound quality on the bootleg 'promos'? Sounds like vinyl rips or some kind of superior master??
