Oh, it's a pity it hasn't been leaked.

As for someone buying it for $1,600, I wouldn't trust eBay.
Someone can "buy" an item and not pay for it.

Do we have any confirmation this is real?

It won't be real, not even worth discussing. The whole reason it cropped up now must be the revival of people's interest in instrumentals with the release of Hotspot 2CD. All of a sudden people started wowing at instrumentals, like they've never been a thing before. Predators are just taking advantage of that.

It's real. Sometimes you have to take a chance on unique items. I had discussions to check the provenance beforehand.

Incorrect. They were apparently remastered for the Further Listening release, and then not used.

I am a fan of Fundamental, and Trevor Horn, so it makes sense to me.

Well, I hope you're right. The Reissues remastering would indeed involve instrumentals of all the tracks existing at some point, at least in the form of project files. These could in theory leak and be burned on "official" CDRs like this one.

I would actually pay the same sort of price for genuine Very instrumentals.
