Can I sell my fake Led Zep box on eBay? 13 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 2  
A member of this site (own up to it if you want to ) sent me this message the other day...

QUOTE:
Over the last couple of week i have received the Led Zeppelin - 40th Anniversary Definitive Collection SHM-CD box set arrive, only to discover from your website that it is fake! Could you shed any further light on this issue or steer me towards someone who would know about this? I have decided not to return the item back to the seller (lesson learned perhaps, more research!). My questions though do i have a Led Zeppelin Product or not, Chinese version. Could i still put this on Ebay indicating this was a Chinese edition? Plus how could i find out more about the product that i own, is it even Remastered? Your help or general direction would be useful.

You should probably ask Warners this and I suspect the answer will be "It's a fake"

Officially no but I'm pretty sure you would get away with it. It would be good form to say it is the "unofficial Chinese version". I don't sell any of the fakes I've got (for fear of compromising my reputation).

It's probably a direct digital copy of the SHM version.

Front cover (main) image of VICP-5442,3,4 : Emerson, Lake + Palmer : First True Japanese Mini LP Rock Release
VICP-5442,3,4 : 1994-09-21

The first three Emerson Lake and Palmer albums (self titled, Tarkus and Pictures at an Exhibition) are arguably the first true Rock Mini LPs. They were released on 21st September 1994.

These had been preceded by a much earlier Lotus and a US release of some Rolling Stones albums repackaged for Japan a few short months before these. Neither of these earlier releases was true to the original vinyl although the Stones came close.

The earliest true Minis were two series of MCA Jazz releases from March 1994 (MVCZ-26 to MVCZ-45) including this example: Death and The Flower.
