I bet you folks saw it on Ebay, i was wondering why this gets so much price. All I see is a boot made from a CD master and decent graphic design work. So far is £515.64...
Anybody can spare some info about this?

There are a lot of misguided folks that believe that all vinyl is superior to CD and will pay big $$$ for any vinyl product perceived as 'rare'.

This is a vinyl recording made from a CD master so that, while it's in a pretty box, will have inferior sound to the original CD it was pilfered from.

I am a Zappa collector and this sort of nonsense is common with CD-only Zappa releases.

Clicking the "Report Item" text link might stop this sort of crap if enough people complain to ebay

Might be nice if hawkwind stepped up to the plate and stopped those crappy Greek discs

...and to think that I have asked some folks down here in Athens that "should" know who is the faker, but nobody has a clue. It is in the city I live, but I cannot trace it.

I see it sold for over 1,400 USD.
could be the timing was opportune, with Lemmy's passing ~ an emotion-fueled purchase by someone with bread to burn. Silly but true an awful lot of vinyl these days is mastered from CD ~ an exploitation of a hipster trend that is now mostly past its day of novelty.

Yep, P.T. Barnum was right. There IS a sucker born every minute.
