3 titles from ebay, possible fakes ? 16 Years ago Karma: 0  
Hi all,

I'm a collector of many japan cd's, love the sound quality!
I recently bid on and won 3 titles (mini japan lp's), but I've yet to sent payment to the seller.I just sense something is not right with these releases, and all all I see is a limited picture for each title.

Can anyone help me,are these fakes, have you heard of this seller before :

seller's id is : greatstuffoncd

The titles are Jimi Hendrix - Are You Experienced
Jimi Hendrix - Axis Bold as Love
and George Harrison - All Things Must Pass , all mini - lp's

In the seller's details it says they are from Finland, And Russian Federation both.

I've asked the seller about telling me the catalog # of each title and also the codes on the bottom of the cd's but they tell me everything is sealed ,and I should have asked earlier.

I only bought one fake before, from someone here in the states, but they gladly took it back when I saw that a title was misspelled on the cd, .

thanks much for your help !

For sure are counterfeit russian editions, not originals.

Not bad quality, I own all the japanese Hendrix releases that are published here at and aldo the russian and these russians have -IMMO- collective value, specially Are you experienced and Electric Ladyland. Why? because the different cover.

But I don´t know if your fakes are exactly the same because they are pictures with OBI strip and the ones that I bought not replicated the japanese OBI, so maybe quality is different. Anyway Are you experienced maintains the collector´s value of the different cover.

The best that you can do is to check this site before to buy or bid. Is very easy. Also if the album you are interested in is in this page: (this is a good guide for counterfeit mini lps). Don´t buy these, all are fakes. Then double check the source and buy only from recomended and trusted sellers. You have a list here in the board.

These are the original Hendrix:

Experienced 1st release

Experienced 2nd release

Axis 1st release

Axis 2nd release

All Things must pass is not published as japanese mini lp, so is only published in the counterfeit market, if you check here you will see it listed as Fake:

Front cover (main) image of BVCM-37083 : Presley, Elvis : Elvis Presley
BVCM-37083 : 2000-01-08
This is the eponymous first album from Elvis Presley. It is the first rock & roll album to reach number one on the national charts (holding at number 1 for 20 weeks) and the first million dollar selling pop album.
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.

Front cover (main) image of TOCP-65740 : Pink Floyd : The Dark Side Of The Moon
TOCP-65740 : 2001-06-16
The landmark 1973 album from Pink Floyd. This issue contains all the original inserts plus more.
Front cover (main) image of WPCR-13142 (fake) : Led Zeppelin : Fake Led Zeppelin - 40th Anniversary Definitive Collection (Zoso Box)
WPCR-13142 (fake) : 2009-01-01

This fake Led Zeppelin 40th Anniversary appears to be made in China. You would find it hard to pick a sealed copy of this as being anything other than than the real deal.

Inside it is also remarkably similar but has some significant, obvious differences in packaging including: (a) the CD comes in a flimsy loose fitting bag (b) Physical Graffiti has no cut out windows and (c) III (3) has no turning wheel.

The CDs also have the tell tale extra ring in the middle but this is much better disguised than usual.

Unusually for fakes these have the catalogue number and an IFPI code (CC 303) on the silver side of the disc.

Front cover (main) image of MVCZ-40 : Jarrett, Keith : Death and The Flower
MVCZ-40 : 1994-03-24
One of the earliest Japanese Mini LPs coming from the second batch of K2 20bit Jazz replicas released in March 1994.
Front cover (main) image of POCP-9194 to POCP-9208 & 9212/3 : Who (The) : POCP Target Obi Series
POCP-9194 to POCP-9208 & 9212/3 : 1999-09-29
The first edition of the first series of mini LPs for the Who (target obis) came with inserts that were pre-punched. A binder and T-Shirt accompanied the release. It is not clear how these were obtained but it seems likely that the small yellow coupon on the obi would have been snipped off and the folder at least was awarded on surrendering the full set of coupons.
