Pink Floyd's Ummagumma mini lp . Obi -help! 14 Years, 3 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hello everybody:

Recentley I bought a copy of Pink Floyd's Ummagumma japanese minilp. But the question here is if someone who has an original copy could help me to check the OBI strip, please , my questions:

Original Ummagumma's Obi strip does it match prefectly in size and color with the artcover?

Thanks in advanced for the help ...

Hi and welcome,

I would not worry too much about the obi colour - if you look at the scans on this site of this release they do not match 100%.

The tell tale and most obvious sign of a fake is normally whether it has an obvious ring on the printed side of the disk. See http://www.minilps.net/fakes for examples.

Sam.

Thank you Sam for the welcome and your reply...

It happends here in Mexico when the mini lps were nothing important, 11-12 years ago, many people used to throw the OBI strips to the garbage and now many of them are making scanner copies to be able to sell their own copies...

I understand about the color of the OBI in this site I saw it, but in this same picture you can see the OBI is smaller that the art cover, what can you tell me about it ?... I remember time ago when this editions of Pink Floy came out, in that time I had noticed that the OBI didn't match in size with the art cover, per example: I have the original copies of Genesis, in case of Foxtrot - VJCP68093 - the OBI doesn't match in size with the artcove and this copy is original I got it from Japan long time ago.

The situation here is the info of this site about fakes tells us that the OBI size must be the same size of the artcover and many people is confused about it. In Many cases the first mini lps made have the same situation, the OBI NOT ALWAYS MATCHES WITH THE ARTCOVER...

I'll wait your kind comments and help...

All the best

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.
