Not sure.
The font on the front (for The Sisterhood) looks a bit off to me.
"the sisterhood" looks like those letters you had your name on your Harrington jacket done in. :lol:

I've seen this off and on eBay for over a year already. Now there's something new about it:

:lol: :lol: :lol: ... makes you wonder what they paid for that bootleg, though ... :innocent: ...

i presume this is a newly pressed/available item as i believe the recording only recently became available. don't any of you ever feel like someone is taking the p*ss out of you big time?
so blase are they about selling this they havent even got the listing text to match the picture! (it sates it is 9/15 when the picture shows 7/15. of course thats an easy mistake to make iF you happen to own all 15 copies, having just had them made!)
for the cost of having them pressed i may go into the ltd edition market myself while there are idiots prepared to pay this sort of price every time a new one comes out....

That's mad. Pay approx £190 to hear something in worse quality than the version that can be downloaded for free.

I f**king hate the fact that shared audio from the net ends up on these rubbish bootlegs. I understand why many trading rings are secluded.

Genuine poster collecting is crazy competitive - contemporary signed stuff in mint or nm goes for a fortune. Don't see much signed by the pair of them, short window, few opportunities.
Still crazy expensive but some have more money than sense ;)

Insane! And shipping is $168.25.
Maybe $168.25 for the whole thing would be reasonable.
