As you can see, it has the same tracks as Celtic Treasure and the same cover picture, except for the name. It doesn't have the word Celtic on it (just like the one which can be seen on Hayley's official website).
The gift is in the giving, and in living what we say - JD
On Hayley's website, it shows that the International version has the same tracklisting and cover as the UK version! The one on that website is probably the NZ or AUSTRALIA version (the same as the US except it's just called Treasure). i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif
I have now had a reply from the Ebay seller referred to in my previous post. He advises that the track listing has been quoted to him by his supplier, who is outside the UK and that he cannot confirm anything until his stock arrives.
I have now Emailed the Italian seller to confirm his track listing as his stock appears to be available now!
This is an important message for anyone thinking of buying the version of Treasure that CD.WOW appear to be offering.
The cover in their advert clearly shows the title as "Treasure" my copy just arrived this morning and guess what!! They've sent me "Celtic Treasure"!
Thanks for this warning Grant. I would urge everyone to take care when dealing with this Company as they have been importing cheap CDs from South East Asia and selling them in Europe against the EU Law. My guess is that this is why you got the wrong version.
They have also broken a Court Injunction from a few years ago to stop doing this so the Record Industry had to take them to Court again. CDWOW lost again and are about to receive another batch of heavy fines. The Judge was not impressed by their claims of "human error".
Online music store CD-Wow has been found in contempt of court for selling illegally imported cheap CDs in the UK. The High Court in London ruled that the site's owners, Music Trading Online, were "in substantial breach" of a 2004 agreement to stop selling such albums.
Record companies complained that the site broke a deal not to buy cheap CDs in places like Hong Kong and re-sell them in the UK without permission.
CD-Wow said the judgement "spelled disaster for millions of music fans".
The company will be fined in July after an inquiry into how much it owes the record labels who complained of copyright infringement.
With retail sales of £21.7m in the UK in 2005, CD-Wow was the third largest online music retailer in the UK after Amazon and Play.
If Amazon and Play.com can trade lawfully and sell CDs fairly cheaply, why can't CDWOW? If they did, we might have a better chance of getting the correct CD version.
Still on the same subject - Is anyone else as confused as I am about the so called 'International' release?
There are a couple of sellers on Ebay offering 'something' with the red dress album cover but no catalogue numbers are quoted and the sellers don't seem to know much about what they are offering!
OPUSCDS.com are offering an album with the US track listing BUT with the UK album cover. They are also quoting a catalogue number which is different to the other releases I have seen got. i.e 475-876-1
I can't comment specifically because I haven't seen many versions yet. In general, there are specific editions for the UK, US, Aust, NZ, HK and a few others, and one for everywhere else. It is that which is called the International Edition. I am not aware that it has yet been released.
I do not think CDWOW are based in HK but they have been buying in some of their stock from there because it is a lot cheaper than buying it from inside the UK (or EU) to sell to the UK, which is what they are supposed to do. But they wouldn't have been able to get hold of the UK edition at a cheap price from HK!
Hayley's official website states that the International Edition of Treasure will be the same as the UK version, however, we cannot yet be sure of this because Decca/Universal seem to be allowing each Country where Hayley has a major market to mix and match their own title (from one of the two), their own cover (from one of the two) and their own tracklisting (from one of the two).
Additionally, Japan has been allowed to add a bonus track and I will now guess that later in the year, more bonus tracks will appear on Special Editions of (Celtic) Treasure in the usual places, Australia NZ and the UK.
All of which makes it difficult to know exactly what the International Edition will eventually turn out to be, whatever is written on the Official website. (Celtic) Treasure seems to be a moving target at the moment...
If we are not yet clear about the various editions, you can be certain that most EBAY sellers and many retailers who buy stock from outside their own Country won't have a clue.
