Just received a 2011 EU pressing of Rumours instead of the KG/SH remaster

    The Ebay seller surely copied a standard text in his add, stating that the KG/SH remaster is as good as the 2×lp.
    Reading this and seeing the price (24 $) convinced me that it would be the one described... (+ seller had positive feedback, it seems to be a german musicstore).

    What bad surprise it was when i received the EU version mastered by HL that i already had in my collection !

    Doesn't it bother you when sellers don't know what they are selling ? Do you find it acceptable for a music store to not know about different masterings ?

    I have learned that when a deal looks too good to be true, that often turns out to be the case. I believe I paid twice as much for my authentic version of that pressing recently.

    I always ask for the full matrix info. It prevents most issues. Yes, sellers very often don't know what they're selling.

    Buyers on Ebay should be careful.
    It's not seldom that some item's description doesn't match of that what you get in the end. Try Discogs.

    The price (excluded shipping) was approx the same as discogs. This is why i lowered my guard.
    Finally ordered one on discogs after confirming the version with the seller.
