Hi,
Just got this Russian bootleg bought out from eBay (7 euro).....I must say it's really a great job thinking of it's a pirate item. Very professional work with a fabric pressed silver CD and artwork

...so be carefull if you think this might be official when you see it on for example eBay (you can find it on discogs too)....it's  not!!

With such fine work, the bootlegger ought to have made it obvious it was from Russia with a phony licensed label. That would have added to it's "collectable" stature. I think trying too hard to fool the buyer that it's another edition risks raising their hackles more.

Thank you for sharing devoleb.  How do we know it is indeed a counterfeit?  Is it because of the jewel case inserts?

Counterfeiters are the lowest of the low!  Can you share the seller on eBay you bought it from?

It is unofficial. "World Beyond" was not released in Russia.
This cd even don't have usual Russian text and logo of Russian Erasure record label - which is now Soyuz Music.

The seller on eBay is gold-clop-4

Here also the bootleg is....looks like it's made as a cardboard sleeve instead and probably produced by the same folks (different seller though):

Looking at the first seller, one can easily see virtually all of what they are selling is exactly the same (CDs with standard inserts in totally clear jewel cases), which is odd unto itself. It's an easy assumption that all his items are copies.

The second seller, however...they have some other Erasure card-sleeved CDs, as well as the Always comp (book case) and the EIS versions of Wonderland and The Circus.

The question is: Are those all counterfeit copies? The book version of Always and the EIS ones are not so easy to reproduce if the mainstay of their nefarious business is the most copies sold of the easiest to counterfeit. Then again, it could just be that bit of real gold dust among the chicken feed to make the other items look legit...

I doubt they will go to this length to do bootlegs of those.
