what do you guys think? i asked the seller, but they are german and their english is not so good.
could it be professionally printed artwork with mass produced cd-r's? ive been seeing a lot of that lately.

I wouldn't be suprised if he downloaded the show and the video footage right here ...

I also contacted him about this. His response seemed vague, which led me to believe that its a homemade cd-r job.

I also asked him, and he said "it isn´t an factory pressed and from the radio broadcast".
So, it's not factory pressed ... but I'm still not sure what he was trying to say about the source.

I received this today in the mail. Not pressed CDs, they are black-surfaced CD-R discs that look like vinyl records on the top surface. The packaging is very nice, with cool pics front, back, and inside. The CDs themselves come from the radio broadcast, and the CD2 has a montage of shots from the show taken from what looks like cell phones.

It is definetly not a factory pressed cd. I had informed ebay about this. I really hate those guys, who try to rip off us all. Even if the package is nice, it is just a cd-r.
Maybe it helps, if some of you inform ebay about this too. Here is the link:

Just choose the "copyright violation", choose "music on cd-r" and then "send email" at the bottom.

Hrm... I've always liked the fact that you can buy bootlegs on eBay. It's about the last place to find them easily.

I've always liked the fact that you can buy bootlegs on eBay too. But only if they are original and factory-pressed. I don't like that homemade stuff really well ... just my 2 pence.

I agree, in general. However, the extra effort in the packaging makes this one OK in my opinion.
I also recieved recently the same show as the "Auchtung Blue Eyes" set from eBay. I was told it was a CD-Rs, but bought it anyhow. It's a fantastic looking boot, and if it's a CD-R they're using blanks that are perfectly silver...no hint of it being a -R at all! Silkscreeened graphics on the disc. This one really walks the line between a "pressed" disc and a "recordable".

It looks like there may be a silver CD of this gig just out. A 2CD set on the well-known boot label The Swingin' Pig entitled "How Soon is Berlin" just sold on ebay for almost $200. Its got the recent Berlin broadcast and the 2004 Dublin broadcast on it.

I could have thought of at least two more fitting names: "Welcome To The Human Abbattoir" or "Why Is Everything Out Of Reach".
