    Yes, it's a bootleg....
    Not listeted on discogs yet, but the label says it all:

    Side One:
    01. Rock 'n' Roll Damnation
    02. Gimme A Bullet
    03. Down Payment Blues
    04. Cold Hearted Man <-------- normally not listed here and...
    05. Riff Raff

    ... these bootleg have exactly the same label:

    oh yes.. iwanna check if the green mexican have same label as tgis one too...
  1.  
    It’s 100% pirate press.

    There are other powerage multi colour vinyls pirates.

    Surprised people will pay €600 for one as it’s not real. One sold for that a few years ago.
  2.  
    It’s pretty looking, but do I want it? At £25 maybe. Bids are at £303 on it....that’s fucking insane.

    interesting point

    Its the same seller who sold the last copy of this 18 months ago.

    Probably got a stock of them.

    Very true. Just like the coloured vinyls of the early albums, they aren't essential for me.

    tidy business, if you can get say 100 of these pressed for, say, $50 each and sell them slowly over time for $300 + each.

    someone should try and alert eBay...they should close this guy down. ripping off not so clued up fans

    now i send him a message trough ebay asking of many of this have left.. interested in buying one at his cost.

    Well its now selling for over $500. Not sure he will have much economic incentive to sell at cost to his when there are idiots out there willing pay that.

    But maybe we can get a batch pressed for us here - a special ACDCfans.net power age splatter edition? For most of us Powerage seems to be on of the favourite ACDC albums ever, so it would be a nice thing to have if it didn't cost too much.

    And once the legal actions start from the band for breach of copyright then we will finally have proof that the band read the posts on this site :)

    I have myself reported the listing because the description insinuates it is an official release.

    I can only imagine the shit that would go down across the AC/DC fan world if that happened :) Interested in seeing how you guys get on with having the listing pulled.

    The thing is there appears to be a number of collectors especially in Germany who know items like this are not real but still will pay big money for them!

    If it gets pulled you will piss some collectors off.

    Then the seller should a stated "unofficial release" in the description. I don't see the problem.

    well, on ebay its not permitted to sell bootleg or pirate press, same as discogs. but more shit thing is that this one pass for an high collectable official press.

    I talked with eBay customer support and they claimed it is not against eBay's policy to sell bootlegs that does not intend to copy an official release. For example bootleg soundboard concerts not officially released are not a violation of their policies, nor issues with an unique artwork/label. Regarding this Powerage splatter vinyl it is the same artwork and label as the official release, it is copyrighted music and the listing insinuates it is an official release.

    really!? years ago sell a bootleg lp on ebay was a danger... and from 2 years in not legal on discogs too. thats because bootleg have not the copyright of the bands you know... sound me strange that now its legal to sell it to ebay again, maybe they are not so strict like years ago.
    about counterfait press, they are for sure illegal under all points, and a real shit for the collectors world.

    Someone with too much money and poor knowledge could be looking at that and thinking “ooooh, they done a Powerage splatter too!”

    If that’s the case then it’s an expensive lesson. Or maybe the listing is sketchy as fuck.

    I’m pretty sure the bidders know it’s a pirate

    It’s like those Mexican and Portuguese sleeves that were sold , collectors know that there pirate but they still want them.

    If this was official it would be a €2500 item.
