    hello there everyone
    I need help with this release
    I have a copy and a few copies to sell
    These are proper, legitimate Warner releases
    and still i find ZERO info on any website, forum, anywhere
    I have practically checked everything and found no info whatsoever
    which seems very strange indeed....
    anyone knows about this? maybe someone also has a copy????
    mail me or write here, ok?

      He started the Burlington, VT concert in 2012 (i think that was the year) by singing the first line of "Annie's Song" before laughing a bit.

      Thank you so much for the info.
      One thing though: If I would get naughty thoughts, I can't help it cause she looks attractive and how would I know her age?
      She looks young but not that young.

      And if it would be a naughty thought, it would only be a thought.
      Nothing more.

      Erhhh, my bad. I would have thought she was over 20 from that pic. Hence, I said woman. That pic is deceiving.

      Bit of slightly off topic news. Apparently Weird Al Yankovic is recording an album of post punk and new wave parodies called Alternative Al. The Smiths parody will be titled The Bean Is Red (The Kidney Bean Song).

      I love how someone has multiple copies of something and is asking other people for more info about it. What a scam...

      It was set for release early last November along with a 7" according to the spreadsheet of new releases from Warner.

      Please inform yourself before commenting. Saves you from embarrassing yourself.
      The person who needed help/asked for information is NOT the same as the seller.
      If I have the time will droo by sometime this weekend and will make more pictures for all the doubters.

      Hello
      It's the guy who asked for the info and also the guy who sells the single.
      Yepp it is me, and i do not think it is a scam, at all
      I'm a fan too and i was curious about this release as it makes no sense
      to release such a thing right now....
      Thanks for the excel sheet info on the Warner schedule, you can all see
      it was scheduled for 4th November 2016 to be released, this is how I could
      pre-order this, although i have never expected it to turn up at all....
      As for the legality, I said it already, it is from Warner, it si a proper legal
      normal release, definitely not a fake and not a bootleg at all....
      As for the photos, yes, the inner plastic sleeve is transparent, and if you see
      anything on the photo, that must be a reflection from a vinyl lamp above our
      shop stand where i work.....there is no mystique or anything....

      To the o/p: how much are you asking for copies of this record?

      That was my first reaction, the sleeve looks like it wash hashed up on microsoft paint. Reminds me of the ''Nice bit of meat'' sleeve

      IP Hash: e7c624a947 - "I need help with this release I have a copy and a few copies to sell".
      IP Hash: 526111f805 - "I'm the seller, it was NOT manufactured in Hungary...".
      IP Hash: e7c624a947 - "It's the guy who asked for the info and also the guy who sells the single...this is how I could pre-order this, although i have never expected it to turn up at all...."
      The same guy that 'pre ordered it', but has several copies to flog - yet this has never been listed on a single site for sale via a legitimate route to market - you can pretty much trust people here would know about something like that in Nov, 2016.
      I appreciate having the words echoed back from my comments, but that in no way answers anything.
      Several 'unique' items have emanated from Hungary and that creates a mystique (my polite way of saying a bad smell) for potential buyers - anyone here have a 5 grand QID picture disc? - hands up and be counted.
      As for legalities - you imply your ownership is completely legal as it was pre ordered and just turned up - so are you the only person in the world that this mysterious accident happened to? How does having a record marked 2017 add provenance to something made and ready to sell in 2016?
      Anyway, can't be bothered - it's not exciting enough to want a copy of. If it is 'real' there will be more than a couple just in Hungary to buy.

      Dear Famous When Dead

      You do not know me, you do not know shit about me
      You should not make judgements on me or on this record, so
      if you could spare me with your malicious comments and
      your negative remarks and experiences with previous Hungarian
      bootleggers, that would be superb indeed....
      Don't call me names without knowing me or questioning my stand
      on this or anything with music related stuff
      I have a record shop in Budapest, I know how the market is very well, trust me
      on that at least, ok?
      Thanks alot.....

      By the same token, why would anyone go through the effort and cost of pressing 10 to 20 bootlegs to sell here and on Discogs? It makes no sense, financially or otherwise.

      So for argument's sake, let's agree there are 3 plausible scenarios:

      1. It is official and will be widely available when released in coming months at a much lower price
      2. It is official and was pulled, never to be released, for one reason or another
      3. It's a bootleg/fake

      We can all decide for ourselves which of these scenarios is the most likely.

      I will make judgements on what I like.
      News flash - people can have differing views to you. There is no malice in questioning details. You mentioned bootleggers, not myself. You are delusional - there is no name calling in my previous comment - I even told 'you' to not personalise people speculating over the legitimacy of this item in the current climate. I'm not in the slightest bit interested in your 'stand' on anything. If you run a record shop, I'm sure you can provide better provenance than shown already.
      So dear anon aka Peter (Notaro) - do kindly run along.
      FWD.
      (I should add: there are many remarks pertaining to the record in a derogatory manner - I find it interesting that only mine provoke a response. Also, it doesn't say much when the seller is easier to identify than the record being sold).

      I made a search and Warner's website says nothing about it.

      On a sidenote, sorry this is out of stock.

      I don't know what to think about this. I want to do the right thing for the artist.
      WHAT'S GOOD?
      Buying an album isn’t the best way to support a recording artist

      I confess I strem a lot of audio and video because it's easy, practical and instantaneous. I remember last year, it was very nice waking up with the gift of last U2 album from Apple. Although I confess I usually prefer Spotify.
