Re: VU Half Speed Mastered 2019 LP's

I can get some real information from UMG when they go back to work after the New Year. Does this person at UMG kno if any of the stuff from the Lou ...

Re: VU Half Speed Mastered 2019 LP's

At the risk of over-posting to this thread, I'll add this - a reply from the person who created the discogs entry for the vu&n (and the other two albums). 'The album is 100% genuine and disributed via Universal Greece along 2 more VU albums. My copy is sealed so i can't provide the info that you ask...

Re: VU Half Speed Mastered 2019 LP's

The thing that makes me suspicious is that most copies are coming from different entities in Greece. Why would they have them for sale before almost anyone else?

Re: VU Half Speed Mastered 2019 LP's

Re: VU Half Speed Mastered 2019 LP's

Are these half speed mastered Abbey Road albums appearing fake/counterfeit? There's no mention on the official Abbey Road pages Where have you seen them?

Re: John Cale on Ludlow Street
