COUNTERFEIT
Music Lover, Admin

Also known as bootleg, also known as a repro (Bootleg and Repro are commonly used but wrongly used terms). This is a record that was illegally remade to look and sound like the original issue. This is usually done by making a tape of a regular pressing of an original copy of one of the records and then pressing this up on vinyl. Most of these types are made up to look exactly like the original with the same artwork and label design. The counterfeiter does not show any distinction between his forgery and the original (Once in awhile the bootlegger will make a subtle change to the label to let collectors know his record is in fact a counterfeit--Henry Mariano used to scratch in the current year into the dead wax of his counterfeits).
