Any idea if this copy of Shah's "Beware" (japanese edition) is legit or a boot?

Unfortunately, bootleg.

Here is an original copy:

Yes the Shah looks original with typical Teichiku matrix and font as well as a white tray.

For the Trance cd I can't tell but the matrix looks indeed strange.

No. I'm pretty sure this guy makes his own bootlegs. He unloaded a ton of them all under this same "label" 3-4 years back.

I did not know "The Curse" by Omen had a 1989 Japanese pressing. After researching it a little bit it turns out that it has. The CD does not look like a bootleg but I always like to double check with you guys (experts):

Also generally is brutal.finds a reliable CD seller? It does not look like he sells bootleg stuff.

It looks like an original Pony Canyon release.
I don't know this seller but usually big Japanese sellers don't sell replicas of cds. They sometimes sell bootlegs cdrs from live shows but it is stated in the description (as cdr or blue cd). Nevertheless beware of resurfaced cds (polished by machine), they are not easy to distinguish and are not that rare in Japan.

Both the CD and the seller are legit.

Like was already stated, it's a Pony Canyon pressing.

I was browsing discogs and ended up on the page of Anesthesy. Now I've never found this band to be interesting, but because I live in Belgium all their releases ended up in my collection.

I got a big surprise when I saw this:
https://www.discogs.com/Anesthesy-The-F ... se/5534966
Have: 6/Want: 41. One copy sold for 150 euro.

I'd like to know if this is a realistic price for this CD?! I have two copies and thought this was a 10 euro CD. Then again, I am the one who gave away his spare copy of their first MCD for free, so I've misjudged CD rarity in the past before :lol:

Thanks Shimrod and Avenger for the answers. Good to know.

One more questions about CD sellers - is the seller metal-crown on ebay (from China) a proper, legit seller of japanese editions? I am very suspect of buying stuff from China but his stuff looks original and legit. But I just want to double-check as usual.

I will stop short of saying that he never sells bootlegs, but it so happens that I always see him selling originals.

Return to “CD collector heaven!”
