Did I buy a bootleg? (TSRTS)


Recommended Posts

Hey Zeppelin collectors need your help. 

I have a small cottage in Guangzhou China, and it means I am really close to Hong Kong.

so I went to a HMV music shop and bought the CD version of TSRTS. Are these bootlegs? As you see I’m showing you the original one I bought years ago, and the one I bought couple of months ago.

I don't believe either is a bootleg.

The first, dated 2007, with the full color Swan Song logo, 8122799611 ends with "atlantic.com.au" AU is music industry code for Australia. So that seems to be a 2007 Australian cd.

The second, SS201-2-1 with "Made in USA by WEA Manufacturing" seems to be a USA cd (date unknown) (possibly older stock...pre 2007).

Bear in mind there are over 250 variations of TSRTS soundtrack across all formats (LP, 8-TRACK, CASS, CD), not including pirated copies.

Thanks man. I was not happy how they cut NO Quarter and the Guitar Solo from Celebration Day. So I kept my old copy because they have the original. Yeah the AU copy does sound better but I was shocked about the cutting of those songs.
