Could This Perhaps Not Be the Real Deal?

If you don't need the XRCD version, this one is out there too.



I do have to wonder what the blurbs about cars on the packaging are supposed to mean?

"MOST SHOCKING IS THE PUBLIC TO ENJOY QUALITY CARS"

"ANANT-GARDE SUPERIOR QUALITY PACKAGING TO THE LEATHER OF THE CAR IS STILL SOUND"

It appears the photo taken is of 3 different things stacked on top of each other. Whatever is directly below the XRCD says Direct Stream Digital along the spine (in purple), that is a different disc, and then below that is whatever makes mention of cars and the like.

So a very misleading photo, that's 3 things stacked on top of each other in such a way as to appear to be one thing, if I'm seeing it right.

That Discogs listing describes it as an unofficial release, so it's a Chinese bootleg, and I believe the XRCD is a Hong Kong bootleg, however exactly what the material is and where they got it I have no idea.
 
Harsh. Though maybe since its a CD-single (?) they just picked the worst few tracks.
I believe the back story is that this was either a legit or pirated import that had an epic spelling failure. I know of one other Crapton CD on Discogs but I didn't yet search for this one.
