I need help with identifying this release :)
« on: August 25, 2012, 14:53:43 »
Hello everyone!
I just found this strange release on Polish auctions. I bought a few albums of Lacrimosa from this guy and all are legit but this one makes me wonder... I never saw it anywhere. I bought it anyway 'cause it cost me less than 3 Euro and I also collect unofficial releases and bootlegs but I'm curious if any of you came across this release.



The auctions says it's EastWest 2000 release and nothing more. I'll be grateful for any help :)

no, never came across this one ... what caught my attention is that on the back of the disc-box there stands "release 1999" isn't it? and on the cd itself stands 2000. Never seen this, maybe it's been a special release or something for specific countries? Happens sometimes ... though I can't find it back in the title catalog neither.
When you can dream it, you can do it!

I've seen several copies of these on ebay but I was never sure myself. Seems real?

Yeah, I know the cover is just like the one on Alleine zu zweit :P

ansthsia - Oh good to hear that you saw it on eBay. That means it's some kind of unofficial release but printed on larger scale. I just wanted to know if anyone came across it 'cause I never did and I visit eBay quite often ;)

Most probaly it's a complitation made by the distribution of Lacrimosa in some country. Like the Singles Collection fon Scarecrow.

yes, this is unofficial (underground) release, printed maybe somewhere in east europe (ukraine?). Nobody knows exactly. I have this CD, even 2 pieces. I bought this in my country 1999 (if i'm not wrong) it conteins the EPs "Stolzes Herz", "Alleine zu zweit" and "Schakal". For the cover was used "Alleine zu zweit". This is typically for such releases. This was one of my first lacrimosa CD's.... It costs exactly 3 Euro. I have also "Angst", "Einsamkeit", "Satura" and "Stille" in unofficial release. Cover and everything looks some different - it is very interesting and rare. I give this CDs to one friend, because i don't have much place at home and for me the original CDs was important, but now i understand that such CD can be very interesting because it is so rare. I had also some of the albums in original licensed cassettes (in my country this was the only original release) - the original import CDs was so expensive.... I sold the cassettes here in Germany before couple of years - now i regret this so much.... This was souvenir from the first years, when i start to hear lacrimosa - and this was 1997 - before 15 years.... :P

Heh, this is exactly what I like about such releases. Nobody has them all 'cause it's impossible to know which country produced what. I also got all Lacrimosa tapes released in Poland and waiting for my brother to bring me "Echos" tape from The Netherlands that he bought for me there. I'm curious what type of release it is. So I understand you deeply regret selling those ;)
