Re: Russian sellers on Discogs

I made the “error” once in the past. The discs were supposedly licensed to Russian labels, but the overall quality was not up too standard and suspect bootleg.
As for the Russians selling rare OOP Jap stuff, that’s also a little..I believe..scam they’ve cottoned onto. There was a bunch of supposed UFO mini LP issue CDs via one seller, and a mate bought all the post 1985 LPs up to the most recent releases on SPV. The thing was; whoever “made” the discs presumed the band were still on EMI/Chrysalis Records, and had used that label art for the discs. Seeing as UFO haven’t been on that label since 1985, it was clearly a giveaway that the CDs were “sus” when they arrived as Chrysalis labelled releases!
Unless you don’t give a shit...stay well away from the Russian sellers/made products.
