NEW Supertramp SHM mini lp fakes 14 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 0  
I don't know if you have noticed yet, but I have recently seen there are a selection of fake supertramp mini lps for sale on ebay. If you look closely at the pictures you can tell (compared to originals)that the colouring is not quite right, BUT they do have up-to-date SHM obi strips and may fool the unwary. As usual they are for sale thru usual suspects in latvia and russian federation (ebay seller: vas_in appears to be a key distributor. See sample pic attached....

All the SHM-CD's I own (bought from CDJapan or HMV Japan) have the text "SHM-CD" and its logo printed in white around the center (hole) of the CD. I've never seen a fake SHM-CD, so I don´t know if the forgers bother to print these.

Excellent question.

I expect they don't have this printed on them (and also I suspect they have the tell tale ring).

Front cover (main) image of Die Cut Covers : Hall of Fame : Die Cut Covers
Die Cut Covers :

Die cutting of the cover image or inserts is probably the most common technique employed to create gimmick covers. It's probably also in most cases the cheapest.

There are thousands of die cut covers. Here are a few of the more popular and best known releases.

 
Front cover (main) image of YES-BOX1 : Yes : Roger Dean Box
YES-BOX1 : 1998-05-29
This ULTRA RARE promo box has the distinction of being the FIRST EVER Disk Union mini LP Promo Box!! The full title of the box is:YES ORIGINAL JACKET COLLECTION selected from ROGER DEAN WORKS. This box contained five YES mini LP CDs.
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.
