Click on any of the records also listed by that seller, the record picture changes, but the background doesn't. :lol:

The George Michael one is hilarious!
That is brilliant. Looks like someone has sneezed an image of GM onto that. There's another PSB one for Suburbia which uses an image from the Being Boring era?!? Looks totally legit of course (like all the other items for sale).
I mean I know there's other sellers doing the same thing but it's damn low trying to con people out of hundreds of pounds for photo-shopped fakery.

Nah, it's probably fake, yet I purchased one anyway back in the day. It was lossless, and the artwork was well reproduced, so in essence, it's the same as any other copy? Good enough. I'm grateful that I was able not to overpay a cheap disc for a single exclusive track.

I suspect that all these official promo CDr's of x2 era weren't produced in BeckerBrown office. Probably PSB management ordered their production from the third party somewhere in UK. It's simple production, there was no point in connecting Kobalt.
So now, years after promo campaign, someone from this "third party", having all source materials, can easily continue to produce it.

It's just my thoughts.
