Supertramp SHM-CD releases 15 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 1  
In the entry for "Breakfast In America" by lina86, the vinyl ring insert appears with a gray border - not usually available in the standard release. I have the 10 Supertramp SHM-CD releases, bought from HMV and CD Japan, where the first 5 releases (according to original year of the LP release) do NOT have the insert, while the other 5 do have the card.

This may be explained by the original UK vinyl labels: the first 5 LP's have the plain A&M label, while the last 5 have labels with different designs, as in this case.

If any of you have these new Supertramp CD's, please check this and post your comments.

Well, someone made a mistake with the grey border this time. This is a normal item, not a promo. The numbered label card is included in all the Breakfast in America mini lps (almost in this release, I don´t know what will happen in the next).

The only promo item from this release is the Disk Union box.

Obviusly, is the only one of the 4 minis uploaded till today that have it, but that´s because -as you said- the first 5 Supertramp albums don´t include the label cards. The label cards start with Breakfast, the same that the special packaged albums with colours in the inner side of the jackets, cutouts, embossing,... these seocond 5 albums received a luxury design. Very nice.

I have just checked through mine and yes the first 5 do not have the cards.

I was particularly disappointed with "Crime" which has a card insert in washed out grey rather than an inner sleeve with a nice black background.

Given that HMV now has Crime back in stock I can only assume they always intended to reprint the first 5 albums but not the last 5 (and therefore not have to worry about having some with cards and some without.

If anyone buys / has bought the second batch of Crime please advise if it's the same crappy "inner sleeve".

Sam.

PS. I have removed the grey border from the scans.

Front cover (main) image of WPCR-13142 (fake) : Led Zeppelin : Fake Led Zeppelin - 40th Anniversary Definitive Collection (Zoso Box)
WPCR-13142 (fake) : 2009-01-01

This fake Led Zeppelin 40th Anniversary appears to be made in China. You would find it hard to pick a sealed copy of this as being anything other than than the real deal.

Inside it is also remarkably similar but has some significant, obvious differences in packaging including: (a) the CD comes in a flimsy loose fitting bag (b) Physical Graffiti has no cut out windows and (c) III (3) has no turning wheel.

The CDs also have the tell tale extra ring in the middle but this is much better disguised than usual.

Unusually for fakes these have the catalogue number and an IFPI code (CC 303) on the silver side of the disc.
