Dodgy CD?

Post by JRobinson » 5 Dec 2018 18:11

I have a question for anyone who knows anything about CDs?
(and/or Alanis Morissette)

I found a CD under a floorboard. it plays fine. on the coloured side is a nice image of what could be flames or hair, orange/red on a blue background, with white lettering 522. nothing else text wise on that side.
on the data side, around the centre I originally thought it said I'm 522 Alanis Morissete, but afterwards with a magnifying glass found that it says PM522 Alanis Morissette.

I can't find anything online that indicates that that singer every had an album by that name. but have found an album 'under rug swept' which the CD case images match the images on the colour side of this CD.

so the question, is this some rare copy of the original (which was recorded, coincidentally in the afternoon on 25th Feb 2002 ->~ 522?), or is this more likely a fake/dodgy copy of the original CD?

Sounds intriguing. Hope you get to the bottom of the mystery. No idea here myself I'm afraid.

They used to sell bootleg copies of albums and concert recordings down Camden Market. These would always include cover art that was basically photographs cut and pasted, often from magazines, which were then photocopied, and sometimes the track listing would be written in black marker pen.There were often spelling mistakes.

I remember sifting through them, the smell of incense suffusing the market, damp warehouses and piles of retro second hand clothes, fly posters, fried onion etc

Perhaps this is an Alanis Morissette bootleg. Jagged Little Pill was an excellent album - You Oughta Know has a great kick. But then she got silly and winsome - albums about travelling in India etc.

I've looked at other CDs, and the one thing in common is that they all usually have quite a bit of text on them, copyright stuff, and the name of the album, etc. so I'm leaning towards this being a moody copy.
