2016 sees eBay awash with fake 89 CDs

As well as the ones from Russia which are 99.9% identical to the originals,

there are some more easy to spot:

Dreamweaver CD US 1989 [FAKE]

Fakes of original German pressings of all three SABBAT CD albums definitely exist and are occasionally being sold on ebay and elsewhere.

If you see 1988 releases described as ‘brand new’ they probably are brand new!

If I find more info on how to detect them I’ll post it here

( the font on the matrix number appears to be the only visible difference )
