Just saw them at a record shop (2 copies) says 'Esoteric' 2017, but I can't seem to find it on the web, and no one here has mentioned it.

Just wondering if it is legit, or some (very) professional-looking knock off. I'm not about to cough up the bread if they are bootlegs.

I wish I'd looked up the barcode number when I was there. they were virtually indistinguishable (on the packaging) from any legit Esoteric release, at least by first glance.

Yes, me too ~ though I am highly suspicious of these CDs as I am still unable to find any mention of a reissue anywhere and they are already in the bin at this one store.

The timing is shady too.

...

If this thread gets tanked by the moderators, that would be a definitive answer to the question !


(perhaps Mike Coleman will drop in and shed some light on this...he's been curiously quiet here lately)

A reissue would be good. A 2XCD with Hawkwind 1997 on the second CD would fly off the shelves. Plently of people missed out on that one too.

I am settled on it's status as illegal bootleg.

What is disturbing is that it is in a shop that does not deal in unauthorised releases. As I mentioned it is the most professional-looking bootleg (from the outside)*
I've seen, so much that I almost bought it without question, except that I was surprised I'd not heard it was coming out and decided to check. Glad I did.

I have my suspicion as to who might be behind it.

*not only bootlegged, but counterfeit,,e.g.
copied trademark of Esoteric label

This release does not appear to exist on the internets, which is odd. Very strange that it would have an Esoteric label, whey change it from the original Voiceprint/Hawkwind records, why bother if it's a counterfeit? Interesting that this only seems to have been spotted in the states...

It can only be a bad thing if they start turning up everywhere and appear on the web ~ best case scenario would be it was just a scarce-copies\ local occurrence.

The cover was not the original artwork, it had a light background. As for the counterfeit label,
[ my guess would be ] whoever made it wanted shoppers to think it had gotten a first-rate remastering from the Cherry Red people, which was my reflex reaction on the day ~ I was nanoseconds away from rushing to POS.

Well, I am happy to announce that I have good news, and a...erm...
well, slightly embarrassing admission. Call it the stress of the times + visual media\internet overload of my aging brain, but I was wrong about these discs.

It is NOT, I repeat NOT Spaced Out In London...

The two CDs I spotted ARE in fact
Out Of The Shadows
(both this release and the one I had it confused with, of course, featuring Arthur Brown)

Furthermore, they are on Secret record label.

I did my online check after having left the shop that day, and somehow by the time I got to my car, the only two things that stuck in my feeble mind were the name Arthur Brown, and the word 'Out' in the title !
:oops:

Geez ~ you know you're getting old when the noodle goes soft !

So the good news is:
no counterfeit S.O.I.L. to speak of !
;-)

Think I need another vacation

Is that the album with the Rodney Matthews cover - the alien rock band one? I used to have that poster on my bedroom wall as a boy.

Hmmm... may have to drop by the clinic and see what gives ~ in addition to having a head like a sieve, I may also have a bizarre form of dyslexia.

It just dawned on me that if you rearrange the letters in 'Esoteric', it spells 'Secret, Oi ' !!

:shock:
