Real or fake?- Jimmy Experts


Recommended Posts

What I have is from the original Japanese CD source from Atlantic label. [ Atlantic AMCY-2745 ]

In Japan a vinyl LP was released that featured rare outtakes from the Sol sessions. Death Wish II was released in CD format in 1999, but all CD versions of the album are now out of print. Today used copies are highly collectible, and can sell for over a hundred dollars.

Originally released in February 1982.
Japanese CD released 1999.
Engineered and mixed by Stuart Epps at the Sol Studio, Cookham.
Produced by Jimmy Page.

The album was re-released by Jimmy Page exclusively through JimmyPage.com on 1 December 2011, in a "heavyweight vinyl package includes previously unreleased material, all-new 2011 sleeve notes and updated artwork." Only 1000 copies were released. Numbers 1–109 have been signed by Jimmy Page, while numbers 110–1000 are available unsigned.

From what I see in the back side pic of the cover (on EBay), there are no new unreleased material listed on the tracks. All I can say with assurance is that it is not from the re-release.

2. The Chase (Jimmy Page)
