A Question About My Copy of Fates Warning's The Spectre Within 1994 Pressing

Post#1 » Wed Mar 16, 2016 12:28 am

i had recently purchased a copy of Fates Warning's The Spectre Within from a seller on Amazon.com to where he said the booklet was in nice condition...however when i received it yesterday i was thrown off by a punch aheart shaped punch hole, then i started to then realize i may have a promotional copy of it and am curious to know if anyother promotional copies of this exact pressing even exist

if you want to know what i'm talking about here is a photo i took (and no that is not the exact tray it came with (the tray was clear, thank you)

Image

another thing that also surprised me was that this same copy also has the misprint on the spine (the misprint being "The Spector Withn") as you can see here as well

Image

so i'm curious to know how many of the mistitled 1994 pressings exist and is this even a legit promotional copy or is this a bootleg or did somebody at first own this and decided to punch a hole in it?. questions i'm asking! :P. serious though. i'm curious. thanks.

Cool misprint. My version is the double Night on Brocken/Specter Within. I have the Awaken the Guardian/No Exit also. One of my favorite bands, John is a neighbor of mine and friend for over 20 years, he still has a hell of a voice. I think I have all the early records and cover variations of Night on Brocken

He brought his bike over to show me when he picked it up

That's awesome. I hold Fates Warning in quite high regards.

Any interesting stories you'd like to share?

What kind of stories? I have known him since the 80s. I tried out for the band when Jim was going to quit but he ended up staying and John eventually left the band. John works for Lego now as well as sings for Arch/Matheos. He's a regular guy, plows snow in the Winter with his pickup, has a cool German Shepard. His wife Jeannie is wicked cool and we enjoy our visits together. Here he is signing my Explorer just before the show at the Webster Theater and my dog Pouncy was licking the hell out of Jeannie. A week later they headlined the Keep It True Festival. The Arch/Matheos lp was just released and he gave me a signed copy as seen on the coffee table

This image is when Jim was talking to him about last minute shit for the KIT w/ Jeannie sitting on the couch, he was plowing that day

Image

He is picking up acoustic guitar a bit now, loves my Les Paul Standard

Image

He's just a normal guy in every respect, does not really party a lot anymore either. I guess we all grow up :lol:

Agreed, nice imprint, I am assuming based on the punch out that it is a promo copy.

And thanks for sharing the pix and stories. My favorite stuff to read and see.
