SPFC FAQ on it:


As the story goes, D'Arcy's copy of the box set was stolen around
February 1995, and the thief attempted to sell it to a local record
store. Even though the thief originally asked for $500, it was
eventually sold to the store owner for $50, for the owner said he
wouldn't pay that much for "home made shit." Judging from the short
amount of time the store owner had possession of Mashed Potatoes
(about 24-48 hours) and the fact that he did not realize what it was,
it is believed that the store owner did not make any copies.

At the this point in time (Feb 95), rumors were circulating that 10
demo CDs were stolen. But the official press release (which was later
published in Spin magazine) claimed the discs as "worthless practice
demos containing scratchy bass lines and D'Arcy telling jokes."
If only someone knew it was really Mashed Potatoes!

Although this has yet to be confirmed, it has been suggested that the
thief split the set up and sold the separate CDs to a number of record
stores.


I also remember reading it was her sister's boyfriend who had gang connections or some shit. Anyway the whole thing surfaced in like 2002.

you're thinking of 666, the MCIS videos from when they recorded their practices before going into the real studio, which were recorded and stolen from MTV

Upon completion of the Siamese Dream tour, Billy Corgan began composing a new set of songs for the follow-up album, and recorded both solo acoustic and multi-tracked electric demos on his 8-track at his home, now called Sadlands. The album version of Stumbleine was taken from these tapes, as well as several of the Tonight, Tonight b-sides. While most of these demos were featured as bonus material on the 2012 Mellon Collie Remaster box set, some remained unreleased and available on bootlegs Billy’s Home Demos (which leaked in 1996) and Mellon Collie Demos II (which leaked in 2000). An electric demo of God leaked on the Mellon Collie Demos III demos bootleg.

The Smashing Pumpkins believe "celebrity breeds idiocy," and have learned to trust no one. "People can be real assholes," D'arcy hisses, brimming with venom. "Like the guy who stole those tapes from me - he was supposed to be my friend, well, my sister's boyfriend, actually. And he pretended like he was nice." Chamberlin jokingly terms the situation "Pumpkingate," but adds that it was no laughing matter. "D'arcy's sister's boyfriend stole a bunch of our demo tapes from her house and sold them before the record was done. It was a huge soap opera - he sold 'em on the Internet, and it was pretty sophisticated." "These kids were not just kids," D'arcy continues. "They were like big-time, man - they were dealing drugs, selling guns, robbing people's houses, and apparently everybody knew but us. And when I find 'em..."

Sounds like the sort of shady bullshit that Iha would pull.

Does the Crestfallen radio promo count as an album? Call Out Hook is a criminally underrated track.

Pisces. Cause you get a bit of the Gish vibe, the SD vibe, and that sweet Corgan acoustic balladry all in one place.
