The \"famous\" Israeli promos… :wink:

Third type, I would say, because the text is different.

I call them genuine. They might be pressings from somewhere else, but they do the same in Taiwan: buy pressings from other countries, and put a Taiwanese obi around it. We try to keep track of those little differences within every Israeli promo cd, and inform you about them. For example, Lull promo came from the US: http://www.spfreaks.com/default.aspx?pa … S&item=965 and Peel Sessions promo came from the UK: http://www.spfreaks.com/default.aspx?pa … S&item=966 . See the differences between Country of release, Country made in & Country printed in.

Please correct me if I am wrong but these promos have only surfaced recenty maybe 1-2 years ago on ebay, ava adore for example is about 10 years old, surely we should have seen these promos earlier.

I am just not convinced but would like to be.

I’m not sure if they’re genuine or not. I agree that it would be very easy to print your own sticker and create your own \"promo\".

But it doesn’t really matter to me anyway. Even if these were really used as a promo, I’m not interested in them. After all, it’s just a commercial release with an extra sticker. I’ve seen plenty of UK \"promos\" like this as well, but I didn’t buy them. The handful of UK promos like this I own, I treat as a commercial release in my collection.
Same goes for imports: commercial US releases with a small sticker on it that says \"imported by EMI Canada\". No doubt that this is genuine, but I personally don’t really care. It’s the same release for me.
