Do you mean these, I was lucky to get RagPickers signed at Clearwater (Oct 30, 2015)

Now that's THE ragpicker's dream come true. But if I were you, I'd asked Mark to sign RPD on the back, there's so much clear space for that :clap

I agree but thats the side HE chose to sign, right after my MK stat.

Yeah, I thought about it. Apparently Mark signs so many things that he doesn't bother about aesthetic side of signing.

The most funny one I seen was his signature in BLACK marker on a BLACK part of the photo. You can see only 1mm of the signature LOL.

He signed my MK Strat in the wrong place as well. :)

He signed, with my name, my STP CD in the heaven, so it's very easy to read the sign LOL

Just imagine you would have taken your VINYL with you, how much space he would have had for his signature..  ;) :wave

OK, so let's talk about vinyl!
Just received this set: https://www.discogs.com/Dire-Straits-Demos-Rarities/release/8104549

Nice work aesthetically, although all recordings have been officially and unofficially  available and in the demo cases, I think in better quality.
Come on, it is not funny anymore.

This one is a few months old. Released on April I think. Certainly in 2016.

Nice!
I am absolutely not into bootlegs and unofficial stuff. Are those items still released on vinyl still?

That bootleg "record company" also released Leeds 78 last year in three different version, green, blue and red coloured vinyls, easily to find in eBay.

Ok that was what I initially meant, are there still vinyl bootlegs produced? I don't care for bootlegs in general but love it when they are presented in a nice way that shows some love for details. Nice idea about those three different colours.

Yes, many bootleg things are still released in vinyl. There was a period that the releases were very few, but the last couple of years, together with the general vinyl comeback, more and more bootlegs appear. Usually they are very cheapish made pressings with a   plain sleeve or picture sleeve with no inners but the final price reflects that and is OK as well, from 13-20 Euros, retail.  But some are quite lavish. The DS ones belong to the rather lavish ones, and the price shows this.
Come on, it is not funny anymore.

I haven't seen any DS/Knopfler bootlegs for a while now but from many years back - I'm going to the early/mid '90s - I went to record fayres and bought these (among others):
