Dire Straits On Every Street Promo-LP Mexico FAKE record
« on: December 24, 2021, 10:20:38 pm »
Hello to all serious Dire Straits and Mark Knopfler Vinyl-collectionists.
A few minutes ago i have detected an obscure OES LP-Album on the well known online marketplace. It looks like a Mexian Promo-LP from Radio-Station, but it is a FAKE-Product. The record itself is a genuine issue from Mexico, but the Promotion-Sticker on Label and the Special-Cover is FAKE. It should look like a special radio-station-promo-cover, but it is a product of phantasy by a slippery dealer on the online marketplace. So take care and don´t waste your money in illegal or other rip-off-stuff.
The trader has also other stars for sale, all the same type of records, so called radio-station promos with "special-covers". Yes indeed, the covers are "Special", they are FAKE, also his Picture-Discs.

Theres an easy remedy - don't buy any supposed knopfler limited edition material without consulting Jeroen's fabulous 'on every bootleg' website....

Hi Knopflerfan. Yes, you are right. But i fear that some newbies in the Dire Straits-Fan-community, which are not familiar with Jeroens website could get ripped off. It can be dangerous, especially for newbies.

Brilliant of you to raise awareness. So the long and short is if anyone is unsure about a certain product on Fleabay then perhaps ask here.. there are indeed some dodgy MK promo cd editions on sale currently....

I personally have a problem with the CD-R stuff, because it is also not really clear to me, if it is genuine or not. So currently i don´t buy such CD-R Promos or CD-R Radioshows. In my opinion such CD-Rs are cheap PC-burned discs without any value. Everybody knows, that such CD-R Discs doesn´t have a long lifetime. They are still not correct playable in some time. My oldest genuine CDs are pressings from Phonogram Germany from 1983, and they still play perfect.

Again I can't emphasise enough if anyone is unsure ask first and even consult on every bootleg which is actually the best Avenue to go down...

On the market-bay are currently some genuine vinyl-promo-records from an UK-trader.
4 Songs from Brothers in arms, 4-Tracks, Vertigo UK,  the MADOX-Promo
Dire Straits Live, the UK-Alchemy-Promo-Maxi
Brothers in arms UK-Testpressing, one-sided, the first half of BIA-Album, PRS-Pressing UK
Tunnel of love, Dutch Promo-Maxi-Single with the full versions of TOL in Mono and Stereo, that could be a gem.
I have all mentioned promo-records in my collection.
But if someone is looking for genuine vinyl-promo-records by Dire Straits from the UK, it will be a chance.
Just have a closer look on the Dutch Tunnel of love-12-inch-promo. That is a rare record.  :thumbsup

This CD-R Promo looks also a little bit strange to me. I´m not sure if it is genuine, but the price for that CD-R is very ambitious.
I´m also of the opinion that in the moment many regular DS and MK items on the electronic bay are overpriced, not all items, but nearly 50%. Except genuine Promos, or other real rare items. :think
