Oke I have a guy, who sold the original 1994 promo for 15 bucks on ebay, but I bid him 50 and now he is gonna sell it to me
He also has pumpkin seeds, Live at Riviera and Early 1989 demos, but I don't know anything about the last three, what are they?

I know! But if u see the pics, or he can fake them really really really good, of they are real, he said he bought them and they came with a very big collection, but didn't know the value.
Is 50 bucks raisonable for it? I think so, since onkly 1000 made?

Now, proving it is an original is a different story, and I highly doubt he is selling you an original 1994 promo. He may have photos of an original, yet the one he mails you could actually be a bootleg. I've been through it all before. Then again, there is always the chance that it could be legit. You have to ask yourself; "Do I feel Lucky?"

Also, the other CD's you mentioned are certainly bootlegs, worth about .04 cents each. There is a slim chance the Live at the Riveria is the French promo, but that is more scarce than an original earphoria promo.

I really ought to dig up my old credit card receipts and find out how much I paid for those promos. I always figured I paid way too much. If Earphoria is nearing $100, then I think I'm finally realizing a decent appreciation. I can't even come close to remembering how much I paid for Live at the Riviera. I think it was sometime in 97 or 98.

Though I assume the "Freedom Promo" version is a US bootleg...

Of course, that was before it was released officially. Prices dropped thereafter.

No No, if the foto's are the one I can buy, it is definitly the 1994 promo, unless listessa lies ...
How much would the Live in Riviera be worth?

hmm now I have a pic of the jewel case of the earphoria( I had only seen a pic of the cd, which matched the listessa despcription)
It has a black side, that has Smashing Pumpkins on it, and it appears to have the pic of the font of the new version, behind the place were u puit the cd in, instead of on the booklett, does this make any sense, ? Anyone can help me judge if this is real...

Porcelina Ruby
08-15-2003, 08:58 AM
I think i was wrong, I think it has the font like on the new earphoria, but it's smaller so u can see the transparant part where the cd rests, it's a blurry pic, pls help!!

Gah. Whatever picture you have is meaningless. Half of the bootlegs out there have cover art directly scanned from the original, even the Virgin logo. If I were you I'd just save your money for something more important since you have no idea what you're doing.
