Does anyone else's copy of Revolver have Ringo listed as Ringo Start of Yellow Submarine? There are a couple of extra pages in my booklet of A Hard Day's Night, too.

 

Edit: Geeze…I'm an idiot! I guess the spelled them all wrong intentionally. Ignore me.

2nd Edit: Well…guess I'm not an idiot. How did I get a fake copy of the remasters? They certainly look and sound real enough. Anyone know anything about this?

Hell…it's a frickin' counterfeit! I can't believe I've been playing counterfeit music this whole time! The booklets and art are a mess, and I think the recordings aren't as good. I didn't really look to closely when I got the set a year ago. I uploaded all the music to my computer and put the box up. The packaging is cheap, too.

I think I either got them from ebay or Amazon. I'm not certain. I feel cheated somehow.

Well if I were you, I'd check the seller and if it's through Amazon, tell them that they're selling pirated music…

Sorry Minime. There are a heck of a lot of these around and loads of well meaning people bought them from sellers on reputable online sites under the illusion that they were getting the genuine product, not that that will be much comfort to you. They look good at first glance but close inspection reveals what you found, cheap artwork poorly put together with many typo's and errors.

 

All you can do is what mith said, inform the site that the seller is selling fakes, plus if possible rate the seller as a piece of crap that should be avoided for selling cheap garbage. I would be fuming.

If it's EBay… I think you're screwed out of your money.
If it's Amazon… contact them immediately. If greater sums of money were involved, I suggest legal threats, but it's only (I say this not patronisingly) $200 ish. I do feel really bad for you, Kedame. I really do. If you want to rant, just make as liberal use of my PM inbox as you want.

Well, I contacted the seller. They didn't know it was counterfeit, and I believe them because if they did know, I highly doubt the would have contacted me back. It was only $117, so I guess I got what I paid for. I feel kind of attached to it now, so I don't know if I will send it back and get a legit one, or just go ahead and keep it and get a legit one. I'm not sure if the music is not as high quality, but the artwork and craftsmanship sure aren't.

Thanks all for your concern. My stepdad asked if it really made a difference, and since I don't look at the artwork a lot (as is evident from the fact that I've had it a year and just noticed), but it's the principle of the matter. I want to know my money went to The Beatles, and I want to know I got the best quality product.

If you can get a refund or legit box from the seller then i would return it, if not keep it. I think it adds something to the product when you know its authentic whether its the beatles, clothes, art, whatever.

I had a look online Kedame to see if there was any comment on the music quality but it was all about the packaging differences.

The same thing happened to me :(

 

"Besides the Revolver errors, 2 other signs of counterfeit is if sgt peppers is printed like "Sgt Pepper'S Lonely Hearts Club Band" (note the capital S), and Wild Honey Pie is listed twice on the White Album."

I've heard of fake mono box sets being sold on eBay too.

Yip both fake boxes are out there, each as poorly compiled as the other. This is the type of reason why i rarely buy anything of ebay and even then its nothing expensive.
