why did you need to quote that whole thing just to ask that?


to draw attention to the question, jackass.


Why do you need to draw attention to someone else drawing attention?

I just bought myself a second copy of DITC (had to get it - mint condition, 20 euros! Also bought FTM for 20 ... pretty nice.), and I noticed it's a bit different than the version I already had (it was bought at the time of release in 2003). My old copy of DITC looks the same as this: http://www.discogs.c...?release=224568.

The copy I just got has glossy black inner sleeves and an insert with all the information from the inner sleeves of the "old" version. Also the black outline on the vinyls is thicker than on the old copy. The poster and the sleeve are the same.

Are there many pressings of this album then? What versions you guys have?

I bought them from this one guy from other forum. I don't know where he had bought them.

I meant: from which country they came from? Looking at pics and prices you paid for them, I wouldn't be surprised they're fake copies, maybe printed somewhere in central Europe...

I have seen copies around on ebay with the black sleeves. Don't believe they're fake. Can't imagine it would be worth the time to press up boots of the metallic vinyl deloused is on. Also the copy I have has the printed sleeves but the vinyl has the extra thick black outline.

Bought them here in Finland, and I don't think they're fakes. I have both albums as originals and these are exactly the same what comes to the quality. I think the seller didn't know the "true" value, hence the cheap-o-price.

It's legit. Seems there are 1000 or 2000 copies around with black sleeves + printed insert.

Has anyone ever seen or heard of a copy of Frances the Mute coming with the Frances the Mute/Widow live promo in a two disc set? Just bought a copy on ebay and it came with the Promo disc only given out at Best Buy. Any info would be appreciated.

No, there's just the Japanese cd + dvd version, the dvd features 3 live videos taken from Electric Ballroom 2003 gig + Frances The Mute audio track.

Strange then. Its just weird cause the guy sold it for 12 dollars.

Kitt do you know if the code on the underside of the CD is the same for every release produced in the U.S.? Don't have doubles of any single disc to check on that.

What's strange? I don't understand your point.

I *think* the code for the US cd should be the same for every release, because the promo cd w Frances/Widow live was just a free giveaway for those who bought regular FTM album in BestBuy stores, that's it. It's not a proper double cd set.

I got that. I find it strange the guy put the two together in a double cd jewel case. thats all.

Another question regarding the Wax Simulacra 7 inch euro promo. Is that legit? The only vinyl missing from my collection. I've only seen it once and lost it at the last second. Still annoyed about missing it.

I got it. Different color fonts, white label album, copies sold just from Netherlands. I'd go with the 100% fake.

mmm, I've seen a very few copies around, if you say you got it with the album, then maybe it's another promo giveaway and maybe yes, just for Holland or a few selected stores.
