Pentangle japanese mini lp 2004 re-issues. 15 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 0  
The back of the obi strips clearly state "Pressed in Hong Kong" above "Printed in Japan" & close to center hole on cd some have "Pressed in Hong Kong" as well.
Are BMG Japan releases now pressed in Hong Kong? Or are these mini lps fakes?
Also, the Pentangle set comes in sealed wrapping as with normal american cd's instead of the more common re-sealable protective sleeves.
Then again, the set of mini lp's by the Searchers came in sealed wrapping but they are made/pressed in Japan [RCA Victor, not BMG].

Yes, Pentagle minis are printed in Japan and pressed in Hongkong by Sonopress. Not all the BMG minis are the same way, the last ones received today says Made in Japan.

Any thoughts on american style outer wraps?
Is BMG trying to save a few yen?

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.
