Has anyone come across this anomaly on the vinyl pressing of Anthology 3?

Hi everyone

A few years ago I purchased all 3 Anthology albums on vinyl; Still in the shrink wrap and properly stored. So I go home and a few days later decided to listen to them. Each “Anthology” has 3 vinyl records (six sides) per set. Across the board the quality was good, and everything looked and sounded like it was supposed too.

Then came the 3rd and final “Anthology 3 ” set. Quite simply, the artwork, both on the outside, on the inside, down to the center labels of the records themselves (all six of them)  – they were all correct in being what you would get with Anthogy 3. However – ALL of the audio over 3 records, six sides, are from Anthology 1 . Not similar or anything like that … they were the same, again, across all six sides of vinyl. I had previously tried various searches to get some info on what It is; rare mispress , bootleg? I don’t think it’s a bootleg though, just from experience but I can’t rule anything out.

So I wanted to find someplace online where I could perhaps get some answers, and this site seemed like the best. Has anyone heard of this before, or…. well…. anything at all? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Are the labels on the records correct?

That is quite interesting. I always think that misprints/pressings are way cool. With this one, I feel like you got ripped off on one hand, but on the other, that record might be worth quite a bit. I could be wrong, but chances are it was just a goof in the manufacturing, so there could be a few other copies like yours, or you could easily have the only one. Because of this, you probably won’t find much online about it.

I’m not sure what that could be worth. It could be worth nothing, because it’s the wrong record, or it could be worth quite a bit, especially if yours is the only copy. I’m not an expert on this stuff, but I’m sure someone else on this forum can tell you more than me.

Usually anomalies aren’t worth much, (if anything.) Most people would rather have the real record, not a misprint.
Most misprints are;
record cover printed upside down, wrong music pressed, or wrong label. (Among other mistakes.)
Also depends on the misprint.
