Wow - that was quick - I just changed the label about 10 mins before you posted - many thanks for the feeback.

It can be a fine line between "home made" and "fake" (or unofficial) but there is a big difference between both of these and "Disk Union" or "Manufacturer". DU and Sony etc are sanctioned by the copyright owner. All others are not - regardless of how well made they are.

"Fakes" pretend to be the real thing, usually by omission rather than an outright lie but it's still the same in the end. "Home made" do not pretend to be anything else.

I'll sleep on it - anyone else care to comment?

Front cover (main) image of Caroline-2008 : Various Artists : Caroline Records 2009 US Releases
Caroline-2008 : 2008-08-05

In late 2008 Caroline Records in the USA released a number of albums by the following artists: UFO, Jethro Tull, Quicksilver Messenger, Brian Eno, Roxy Music, The Raspberries, Kate Bush, Blondie, The Band, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Van Der Graaf Generator (full list below).

Unlike the suspect Universal releases these are 100% Japanese. The only difference between these and the Japanese (apart from being as much as 50% cheaper) is a sticker on the bar code of the obi.

As at March 2009 most of these are still available at Amazon.
