1-800-NEW-FUNK vinyl rerelease

I searched but didn't find a topic about this. It seems that 1-800-NEW-FUNK was re-released on vinyl last month. I've got a copy on the way from eBay.

Seems legit. It's out, released March 2019 on a new reissue label called 8th Records. They already have a lot of great 180g rereleases such as the first 3 Shuggie Otis albums, several Miles Davis ones, Thelonius Monk, Robert Johnson etc etc.

.

(I know the image on amazon shows the 1994 US CD but I trust the LP is a brand new edition indeed.)

Please report back to us after you get it. That's one I never got the orginal pressing of so I'm interested if it's legit.

Seems anything but legit. Unknown label with a random bunch of re-releases? With no advertising et al? Smells like bootleg. Discogs comments suspect it is another (dodgy) label under a new guise: https://www.discogs.com/l...th-Records

I don't know for sure nor did I claim I do. I said it seems legit – based on a couple of reviews and photos I've seen. If it does turn out to be unauthorised though, then it's a pirate or a counterfeit (depending on whether they copied the original identification and copyright marks or made up new ones), not a bootleg.
