I take it this is a boot? Quality? Thoughts?

Here's something collectors here may or may not know about. Recently I've noticed "unofficial" sleeves being manufactured for legitimate records (7" / 12" / LP). Two sellers - one from Portugal and the other from Mexico - are guilty of this. They're either manufacturing these sleeves themselves or getting them from another source. Case in point, see this auction here:

While the actual vinyl is legit, the sleeve is not. Some of the sleeves I have seen are laughably bad. Buyer beware!

Well spotted and thanks for the heads up! Could this be another example?

I would reckon that it's probably the same seller with a new screen name or at least this is an alternate user name. Interesting way to issue a 7" sleeve, but yes, clearly a boot.

It's an official promo. There was a remix version by Carter Tutti as well but I believe that was only released digitally.

Swedish Megamix CD bootleg....

The real ones where silver pressed CDs, no white label (label was printed on disc with silver showing through the unprinted bits) and had the CD-PRO 4137 around the centre hole.

Very nice that the bootlegger tells you how much they go for on Discogs though!! :roll:

Good spot!
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|

What about the "promo" with the "radio edit" of Say it to me floating around Ebay?
