This looks like one of those Amazon-made and sold CD-R versions of certain albums. It might be that.

One a sidenote - does anybody know if the Iron Maiden japanese Black Triangle series CD's have been bootlegged? I never saw anything about this but maybe?
Want:

Manowar - Hail To England CD (Music For Nations)
The Regime - U.G.L.Y. CD

Kind of a bootlegger. When they sold those they made it clear that they are selling CD-R's.

Just to note that Amazon treats these as CDRs.

http://www.amazon.com/Nightmares-And-Ot ... B000002J6C

CD-R Note: This product is manufactured on demand when ordered from Amazon.com.

"CD-Rs and DVD-Rs (the "R" stands for "recordable") look like the discs you're used to and offer the same audio and image quality. This recordable media is used to manufacture titles on demand, as fully authorized by the content provider.

Through manufacturing on demand, CreateSpace, part of the Amazon.com group of companies, enables Amazon.com to offer music and video content that might not otherwise be available. Each disc comes fully packaged, with artwork, in a standard jewel case for audio and an Amaray case for video, although for reissued products the artwork may differ from the original.

CreateSpace works with many of the leading music labels, television networks, film studios, and other distributors to make these titles available to Amazon.com customers. All products are manufactured from original source materials (e.g., for audio products, uncompressed CD-quality audio).


By eliminating inventory, waste, and inefficiencies in the distribution system, on-demand manufacturing provides the added benefit of helping preserve the environment.

When shopping, you'll see CD-R or DVD-R on the product detail page for such products. Amazon.com's standard return policy applies to these purchases."

No surprise big platforms like Amazon are marketing their "pro" cd-r's that are licensed. With the collapse of cds as a format all over the world (accelerated by the massive postage price hikes from the US since the removal of international surface mail class, just think of how many times you said "Fuck ordering that from <insert country>, the postage is too high) it is a place for bands to reach customers that want their long out out of print back catalogue. Amazon is so gigantic they have special postage rates in place too. Look at how many small metal labels struggle to sell 500 press cd runs these days, let alone 1000 copies.

This has been going on for quite a few years for DVD's since the collapse of the dvd market after the rise of streaming.
