    Default WACF With Blue & Yellow Album Cover

    I just recently purchased the 180 gram vinyl edition of "WACF" from an independent seller on Amazon.com. I bought it from an individual seller. When the record arrived yesterday I was shocked to see the blue and yellow album cover as opposed to the green / gray scheme.

    Did I receive a bootleg edition or something? When I contacted the seller, he said it was an "official re-issue"...

    Return or keep for the novelty?

    This marks the THIRD time I have purchased this item. The first two had proper artwork. However, the first one was packaged poorly and the cover got bent. The second was packaged properly but for some reason the record skips even though it's flawless. Now I have the blue cover edition.

    From Amazon.com

    Beware this European 180g vinyl reissue - Catalogue number 8122-79793-9 Barcode 0 81227 97939 3 Manufactured in the E.U.

    Completely different bright yellow & sky blue cover with a laughable sticker on the front proclaiming "Packaging replicated to the finest detail" - Since when did this release ever have that colour artwork? It looks like a well made bootleg.

    Contacting Warner Bros Records UK for more information is absolutely impossible & Amazon are of no help whatsoever.

    Tread carefully!

    Could be what you got. Maybe not.

    Yeah I saw this on Amazon yesterday after I received mine. The guy never did a follow up so that's why I brought the question here...

    I'm not up to speed on my geography / flag colors. The record only cost 12 bucks. I plan on keeping it I suppose. Just wanted to know the story behind it. Hell it even contains the poster.

    If it makes you feel any better, I spent around $25 on this many years ago...



    It sounds like absolute shit and was a waste of money... well! at least my red and grey look cooler than your gaudy blue and yellow.

    The fact that it contains the poster leads me to believe that it may indeed be a legitimate re-issue, but with the obvious factory defect in the colour scheme, thus possibly making it more valuable in the long run. In which case would be cool to have, as a rarity item. Although, the low price of $12 is suspicious, and may indeed be a bootleg. It would be interesting to see the actual album and small print on the cover. The Amazon listing shows only one left in stock, and you get a mp3 rip as well with it.

    I've never noticed a bootleg with a poster in it.

    I bought that thing, too! I always dug "Act Like It Hurts", which was re-worked and showed up as "Honeybabysweetiedoll" on ADKOT.

    The breakdown setcion in act like it hurts was also used as the breakdown section of get up. The part that Alex plays there is the same part(hi-hat and cowbell together) that he played at the end of house of pain. It's funny how they recycle stuff...

    Other countries do or did bootleg albums.
    I have cassette versions of some VH albums from other countries and the colors are all weird and have typos n stuff.

    There is a better sounding version out there of the WACF demos.
