As I've only just joined this website, apologies if this has been mentioned already but I've just came across this LP, a guy I spoke to says that 300 copies were pressed in black Vinyl, but 50 red and 50 grey copies were pressed as overstock.

I've never heard these demos before so I'm really interested to hear them.

The Gray Race demos came from a cassette tape a few years ago and were digitalized by me. Same goes for most of the other demos that "miraculously" surfaced back then. The tapes were the only known source... And I've never heard of someone putting out bootleg vinyl of them to make money from it. If this is indeed true that person sucks monkey balls.

Thanks for the info Marty. The guy selling the LPs isn't the guy who pressed them, he was in London and saw a guy who had them, so he bought a load of therm to sell on.

I haven't got a copy as they sold on ebay before I had the money but a guy who runs a local shop, who stocks unofficial LPs, says he's getting a few copies soon.

Free advise: don't buy it.
We shouldn't promote bootlegging of material that we weren't officially allowed to release in the first place.
Seems like some bad apple got a hold of the files and is now trying to make a few bucks.

Don't.

It seems the LP must have a mixture of demos and rough mixes, going by the tracklisting.

I'm guessing the seller knows more about this release than he's letting on

You know it's a bootleg when they're using pictures of old band members on the front but using a more recent logo on the on the back. BR wouldn't do that. 
I want BR to play Anesthesia in every language at every country they go to.
