  • Is this guy one of the dodgy bootleggers?

    Hello, i wasn't expecting to ever post a topic, but i just received this email and i have a feeling the chap who sent it might be the chap who's been pressing up shit boots recently.

    "Hi Stephen,

    I saw on discogs You are one of the few people who own the LP of Tony Igiettemo.
    We planed to reissue the album in december and I just got the message from our studio, that our copy of that album has non-repairable background noise.
    If Your LP sounds good, I'd beg You to record it for us in .wav, I'd send You some free copies of our releases instead.
    You'd be a really big help for us, if You can do that.

    Thanks and best wishes,"

    I've looked him up and i think i can answer my own question, he is. It's that PMG audio company from Austria.

      I'm hearing mixed messages about this PMG bunch. Some say it's all licensed and others say it's nothing of the sort.

        As when we reissue it, it will devalue your original

            100% bootleggers IMHO

            it's OK to head out for wonderful, but on your way to wonderful, you're gonna have to pass through all right. When you get to all right,
            take a good look around and get used to it, because that may be as far as you're gonna go.

              That record isn't even all that (IMO obviously)

                Not saying Steven isn't an expert audiophile who would produce a crystal clear .wav for their delectation but would you really want to buy a record that they have sourced digitally from a complete stranger then remastered. Sounds well dodgy to me bet they've sent a bunch of emails out.

                I'd have thought not forgetting getting the artist(s) or his/her family some royalties first that if your only source is a vinyl edition that this should be done in a professional studio with top of the line industrial standard equipment by specialists to get the finest results possible.

                  The time-waster in me says to send some beautiful .wavs that turn to silence halfway through the track, and completely deny anything is wrong.

                    It's not really licensed.

                    shady bootleg guys.

                    They're pressing up some really good/rare afro records ...

                          i'd assumed it was a bootleg label. too many rare releases in a short time frame and no obvious theme / pattern to what they're putting out

                            I doubt a major studio like EMI would have thrown away all the masters. Lying bunch of gets.

                              This is what you should do.
