Dire Straits Italian FAKE Radio-Station Promo-covers
« on: February 02, 2022, 07:26:17 pm »
Wow, now i have discovered some very obscure Dire Straits vinyl-singles from Italy. All serious DS MK Vinyl-collectors know the Italian split-promo-singles for Jukeboxes with two different artists on one single.
They all have a white label with black print, and a plain archive cover. I was very surprised to see the picture-sleeves from Italian Radiostations.
To my knowledge, that covers are well made FAKE-covers. Just have a closer look to the used cover-layout, with the very pale colorized covers. The typesetting looks too perfect for a vintage picture-cover of the eighties. What do you think.
By the way, they are not bargains, just have a closer look to the very ridiculous price-offers of more than 70 Euros for an artificial rip-off-product. The records itself are very common and easily to get for a few euros.
So don´t waste your money in such artificial items again. OK, on the other hand, everybody should have his or her own decision to buy such items or not to buy it. No question, but for me, as a serious record-collector, such records are trash, rip-off-items, not genuine, and not worth the paper, on which are the covers had been made.

Hi Klaus
The covers are fake but the records are genuine.
I saw them on ebay and asked to my spanish friend for more info about them and he ensured me the covers are fake.

Yes i know that records, too. I have never seen them in such covers, but in white archive-covers only, and with the coloured Jukebox-strip.  :think
