since it was rare I payed $40 for for a copy !!!!!

The truth is that we had about 10 copies ea. of The Ladder and Jeff Paris - they all came from Sweden (the same is for stuff like Le Mans, Arc Angel, Cobra, Robert Tepper and so on).
We stocked both titles once as our supplier confirmed us that they were originals (nice joke) - we sold them at 15$ ea. and stopped the whole affair, so it's needless to ask if we do self burned CDRs or stuff like that - why should we spend our money
on official reissues like Crystal, Sojourn, Under Fire or Santers when we could do the self burned stuff nearly for free ???????

The Treat CD should be from the same label which did the 1st Fate CD recently (which had a really poor sound quality), so it must be a bootleg. I heard that the sound quality should be really good, but I have no idea who's behind the release.
The strange thing is that we tried many times to get the rights for an official release, but the owners (a German based management company which was linked to a major comapny) didn't care about it.
In that case I would say I have nothing in general if it get released now illegal as long as the sound and packaging is good - that's why we'll stock it, even if I hate bootlegs in general, but that's a totally different story as the album was never released and will be never released and much more important - the band will never get any cent even in case of an official release as everything was covered through their deal.

Nuff said

Take it easy
Georg
