I need your help. I know this subject has been discussed before but I still miss some answers.
The more I collect, the more I get confused by Roadrunner/Roadracer variations.
I bet I'm not the only one and I would like to sort some things out.
Hopefully we can solve some things for once and all
I would like to point out my dillema by an example of Vicious Rumors- Soldiers Of The Night (Price Killers).
I have two versions of this particular cd:
The left one has a silver innerring + IFPI, the one on the right has a transparent innerring without IFPI. Matrixes are identical. A friend of mine has a copy with a silver innerring but without IFPI. So basically as far as I know by these copies there's 3 variations. The IFPI code on my copy is IFPI 0708.
- Are Roadrunner/Roadracer cd's with silver innerrings legit variations?
- IFPI 0708 is the code of a Sonopress plant in Germany. Could my copy be a legit Roadracer repress (post 1994) or is this a bootleg? Does this count for all the earlier Roadrunner/Roadracer cd's?--> IFPI=bootleg?
- I also have copies of Tony Macalpine's Edge Of Insanity and Maximum Security with IFPI codes. Again, could these be legit represses (post 1994) or bootlegs?
All feedback is appreciated, it should help us all.
Thanks in advance.
