Pet Shop Boys vs HT Funk - Money!
http://www.chemical-records.co.uk/sc/se ... =HTFUNK013

A white label released two days ago.
This is one of those tricky ones. The sources tell me that the track is licensed but only for a limited DJ release. The track is basically a sample of Opportunities to a modern dance beat - it's actually quite a good release and well worth the 5 or 6 quid you can pick it up for.

The quality of the pressing is very good as well.
Thanks for the info!

I saw that one yesterday (but forgot to post). I had a quick look around and it to me seems like a bootleg. The catalog number (I think) is the same as the Brazilian promo which only has the radio edit and extended mix. Gardner and Technopop will probably confirm this.

The Alternate 7" & Club mixes appeared around the same time as the Metropolis mastering fakes, so for me I would avoid.

Really don't bother. You can download them at various places. Don't give this guy your hard earned dosh - we all could do what he's doing.

Exactly! Just a CDR with those fake versions from Metropolis Mastering fake.

Discovery Tour DVD

#69 Post by gregf »

Apparently Discovery Tour DVD is avout to be released. :roll:

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... :B:SS:AU:1

For shame. Others who do this say they are copying tape to disc.

Damages The Boys reputation. :?
I wonder if this can be reported ?

No postal charge mentioned either.

At the bottom of the eBay listing there's a link 'report this item'.

Just for the record, I am not a wowser. My objection is not just that
he has copied tape to disk (which I tolerate), but that he is not telling
buyers this. The result will be people feeling ripped off, and maybe bitter
to N&C.

The first listing was removed but it was re-listed under a new number.

We need some more Pet Police to report him. It is simple; you just click.

can only follow my impression: fake! But maybe I'm wrong... It's isn't a CD-R which is authorised by Parlophone/EMI, but maybe by Ralphie!
