|Record seller helps fans learn about fakes|
[Posted by Dave Haber on Monday, 06/30/08 11:19 am] [Full Blog] [Related Posts] [Tweet] [Facebook]
James Oldham of P.M. Sound and his company is providing sound and video coverage for the Vegas Fest, but he can also be found in the Marketplace room selling interesting and rare Beatles records.
Fakes and counterfeits is a problem for record sellers and record collectors, and I was really glad to see that James has brought to the show and is displaying a fake Beatles butcher cover, just to show fans what to look out for.
James' fake, that you can see above (click on the image to see a bigger version) is a fake butcher cover shot pasted on a real, later, Yesterday & Today cover. You can see the remnants of the original peeled cover below, and James also points out how the texture of the picture is wrong, it should have a canvas-like texture, but the fake is flat.
Fans looking out for fans, that's what you find at the Fest. Thanks, James!
