Uriah Heep 14 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hello all!

I recently purchased two Uriah Heep collections ("The Magician's Birthday" Box Set & "Return to Fantasy" Box Set) from an eBay seller named "mymusicfix2". The auction page is here:

I just recieved them today and have a couple of concerns:
1. The boxes are not sealed in shrink wrap and with a sticker outside like other Box Sets that I have purchased. Instead, they were sent in a large clear plastic bag.
2. The individual albums included within are not in what to my experience is the typical packaging - The re-sealable plastic envelopes but rather, they are individually shrink-wrapped.

Does anyone else own this set? So these sometimes come shrink-wrapped (they are from BMG)? Does anyone have experience with this seller? His feedback is numerous and positive.

Does anyone know where to buy these re-sealable envelopes? If they ARE legitimate, I want to scan them for my album art site ( do not want to damage them by storing them without the cover & Obi being protected; I have to remove the celophane in order to scan them...

Thanks all!
Scott Robb, Admin/Owner

P.S. We don't have a lot of Mini-Album artwork and are very interested in more. I have begun putting these images up online (both with and without the Obi strip). If you are at all handy with a scanner and PhotoShop, we'd love you to share your collection with us. Tonight we hit 60,000 covers; come add yours!

This is not a factory boxset as the recent Beatles Mono, by example. The box is a promo item released by the japanese music shop network "Disk Union". But don´t worry, this is the real thing. Is not sealed because the plastic bag is added for protection, not a sealed bag from factory. Is always that way. MyMusicfix is a trusted seller (expensive but legit). With these boxes I think that you must receive also 2 or 3 empty promo covers and maybe (not sure about this) some promo obis.

Sometimes the cardboard sleeve albums come with reseleable bags and sometimes with factory shrink wrap. I remember that my Uriah Heep albums were shrink wrapped and I needed to tear off the shrink and put the albums in a reseleable bag. I own only the first boxset.

For the bags you can buy them at some ebay sellers like Sushi-Shasimi by example. He sell also boxsets at better price than MyMusicfix. Ask him or Quicksilverlove next time before to buy at premium prices form MyMusicfix. Both have adds here.

Thank you very much for your reply. It is very helpful and I am happy to know that I was not ripped off!

Yes, it was a very expensive purchase but, I cannot find either of these box sets anywhere! I am afraid that I am a little addicted to these Mini-LP's now... As you can tell from my web site, I LOVE album art and the Japanese mini-LP's have the best artwork. That the music has been remastered in many cases makes it all the better. Thank you for running such a marvelous web site, I'm never leaving!

According to Pink Floyd Brain Damage site there were a few glitches with this release, the most notable being a misprinting of the inner bag for the second CD in "The Wall".

There are also cases of an album being missed out and duplicates in their places.

The later Japanese release of this box set is basically identical to this box set.

Poor quality fakes exist for this set - more details below.

The original Japanese individual releases are regarded as being of a much higher quality to either of these box sets.
