The GOLD / LOVE SONGS anomaly

    A year or so ago, I began seeing eBay listings for something called GOLD: LOVE SONGS. What perplexed me was the fact that the cover looked like a reproduction of ABBA's GOLD, complete with the four-pronged crown (supposedly representing the four members of ABBA.) It looks like this in the eBay listings:

    Wanting to verify this for the resource, I ordered one of these, but what came in the mail was a rather ordinary-looking LOVE SONGS CD with German manufacture markings.

    I'm still trying to find out if that black cover really exists. One thing that's unsettling is the fact that every image I see of that is the same exact jpeg, with the same white markings in the black area.

    Has anyone ever run across this in real life? Could it be a slipcover from some territory?

    I ordered one of these from the states last year, but it never turned up and had to be refunded.
    I only bought it because I hadn't seen it before, so it was just something to add to the collection. I was rather disappointed at the time.
    bought it from these guys;

  3. If you type in the EAN reference, this comes up which seems to be the norm and mainly on ebay with that number, but some do not have an image at all. Seems a bit suspicious to me - a bit of Photoshop, but maybe someone else knows something.

  6. Ted - I’m try to see what is in your double posts above which look exactly the same as the original post. Have you discovered something new about this release.
     
  7. Sorry for the late reply but that was simply an accident by posting twice. I had a bit of a flu bug and I believe I hit post before I realized I didn't complete what I was trying to say. Sorry my friend!
