No Sleep Till Brooklyn (UK)

Arguably the best bootleg to have surfaced recently, luckily there are a few differences to spot.

The Original:

The Bootleg:

Vinyl Label - Original Vinyl Label - Bootleg

The Differences:

This time they have gone to the trouble of reproducing the picture sleeve and it is a very good copy. Only by looking at the original and bootleg side by side is it really possible to tell the slight differences.

  • The red used on the front borders and back design is very slightly darker on the bootleg
  • The photo used in the original is slightly clearer.
  • The etching on the runout groove of the original has "BEAST-T1-A1" (and B1 on the flip side) and a small stamp of "AD2". The bootleg simply has "BEAST" written on each side and the letter "A" or "B" written 4cm (1.5") away from it.

The Vinyl Label Differences:

  • The diameter mark of the second ring going out from the centre hole goes through the "T" of "Stereo" on the left hand side and "T" of "T1" on the right side of the original. On the bootleg the mark misses nearly everything on the label except for cutting the small text on the bottom.
