Elton John Japan cds fake? 15 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 0  
I have wondered if one of the Elton John's Japan mini lp I've bought on eBay last year is fake, also have other ones by EJ that make the list.

The first thing I usually look for is the underside of the cd itself should, though not always, have the catalog number etched on the inner ring.

For example: EJ's 17-11-70 lp catalog number UICY-9103 is on the obi, jacket spine and on the playing side of cd but underneath(silver side) to my surprise the backward writing of his earlier pressing PHCR-4014!

Does this indicate that this disc is really the PHCR version, not the UICY one??

I would appreciate some help on this if anyone knows.

For sure NOT A FAKE. My copy (and the complete boxset) is from a trusted original japanese source and is exactly like yours. So don´t worry about it.

Whew! Thanks! I couldn't remember where the seller was located when I bought this and a few others with the same situation. I usually stick with buying from Japanese sellers and cdJapan site.

Thanks for your help!

The fakes are quite close to the real deal...just check the disks. The cheapo's hav 'made in Germany' printed on the back of the cd.
