Velvet fakes? [Was:Universal UICY Japanese mini-LP 16 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 0  
continued from Universal UICY Japanese mini-LP

Hi there,
first post.
I've recently received delivery (from a German source on ebay) of two Velvet Underground Japan mini lps namely 'The velvet Underground' and 'White Light White Heat' I am concerned about certain spelling mistakes both on
the cardboard sleeves and on the printed side of the discs.
Also on the playing side of each disc where I would expect to see the UICY number there is instead a backward number which when read forwards would seem to correspond with your photo listings on the actual article page of your website.
Are these displays copies or are they the genuine article If so mine are identical but are they fake?
I'd like a clarification before I challenge the seller.
Cheers,
Alex.

Alex, they are real pictures.

I don´t know about fakes of the Velvet minis so I think that yours must be originals.

You have 2 different Velvet releases, the old one with the code POCY and the newest one with the code UICY.

Hi Alex,

Can you be more precise about the spelling mistakes?

Also, what are the actual numbers on the two discs?

Any chance you can scan or photograph the fronts of the discs?

Thanks, Sam.

Hi Sam,
sorry for taking so long to get back.
Of the three Velvet Underground mini lp cds I have, the following mistakes appear:

On the back cover of 'White Light/White Heat' (VERVE) Track 4 reads; 'THERE SHE COMES' and should read 'HERE SHE COMES'
Cd label side shows codes UICY-9135 and (POCY-9002)
Track 5 reads 'I HEAD HER CALL ...' should be 'I HEARD HER CALL ...
On silver side, what looks like POCP 2520 ER V but it's actually upside down and right to left??


Back cover of 'The Velvet Underground'(POLYDOR) track 10 reads 'AFTERHOURS' (one word) should be two.
CD label codes UICY-9136 and ( POCY-9003)
track 4 reads; 'PELE BULE EYES' should be 'PALE BLUE EYES'
Playing side code looks like POCP- 2521 2R V but again right to left/upside down.

'VU' (VERVE) cover is good.
Cd label codes UICY-9137 and (POCY-9004).
Track 1 reads; 'CAN'T STAND IT ...' should read 'I CAN'T STAND IT ....'
track 7 reads; 'INSIDE YOUR HEART' should be 'TEMPTATION INSIDE YOUR HEART'
Track 8 reads; 'ONE OF THESE' should be 'ONE OF THESE DAYS'
Playing side codes POCP - 1844 - 3K and
IFPI L237 these two codes are larger but still backward and upside down.

I'm still waiting to receive 'The Velvet Underground and Nico' Sorry can't scan and upload but as far as I can see they all look identical to your pictures (except for playing sides which aren't shown) Would appear to be bad quality control?
Alex.

Hi Alex,

You´re right about the mistakes, but don´t worry, you have the originals. I have checked all this with my own minis that comes from a guarantee japanese source (Sushi-Sashimi) and is exactaly as you described.

About all these mistakes I need to say also that in my original VU III LP also track 10 read AFTERHOURS.

Thanks for that, I'm now convinced that mine are genuine. I've stopped fretting and will simply enjoy them.
Cheers to all.
Regards,
Alex.
