That's too damn funny. BUT DOESN'T THE ENTIRE WORLD KNOW ABOUT THESE YET?????

No luck finding any originals here yet, although I really haven't tried very hard.

Fun? Dear god, I could really use the money. I've been scouring stores like crazy looking for them before the sexual frenzy fades away. Nothin' doin', sadly.

Canadian Beatles CDs are fairly common here, just not of "Help" or "Rubber Soul."

You realize there's only about 20 copies of that disc in existence worldwide, don't you? It's TRUE! No one is finding them in used CD stores in Canada, so that proves it.

Since COLA just got 2, that means only 18 are left.

COLA, I've got an EXTREMELY RARE MIS-PRESS of the Capitol Albums Vol. 2 set containing INCORRECT DIGITAL FOLDDOWNS of Rubber Soul and Beatles VI. I have it on good authority that these will be quite valuable in the future, much like the fabled BUTCHER COVER.

In addition, I have a HAND-LETTERED envelope that says EMI on it that can be used to return the faulty discs for good ones. Supposedly, a hot intern may have touched the envelope.

Perhaps we can negotiate a trade.

Can't beat that, but I just picked up both for $21.75, shipped. On eBay, no less. So much for "none are ever going to sneak through".
