Earth, Wind and Fake?!? 16 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hello! I am an avid mini-LP collector, and I believe 99% of what I have found along the way is authentic. However, there is a set of two discs I purchased from Ebay that have bothered me ever since I bought them. They are Earth, Wind & Fire's "Gratitude" and "That's the Way of the World" -- the ones with the orange and white Columbia OBI's (UPC code 4562109404029). The inserts seem cheap, the disc looks no different that what you would find in the standard release, and the screenprinting on the cover art (both front and back) looks cheap. I've looked all over and cannot find any documentation anywhere that these were even made into mini LPs!

Have I gotten had? Are these official -- even if cheap (they supposedly were made in 2003) -- are they at least authentic, or is my collection poisened with some fake stuff? Let me know!

Even if they are authentic, they are pretty weak and poorly done. Perhaps Sony Japan will update these two releases with a better mini LP product.

And speaking of which, does anyone have a list of Ebay sellers that are legit/not-legit when it comes to mini LPs? It would be great to get something like that going.

Let me know if you can help out! Long live the mini LP!

Nick

Front cover (main) image of MHCP-1002 : Santana : Lotus
MHCP-1002 : 2006-06-07

Recorded in early July 1973 this album took nearly a year to make it to streets.

One of the most elaborate record covers ever produced and probably the most elaborate so far to make it to mini LP release. It is nearly impossible to capture the splendour of this on a web site but we shall try...
