Stratovarius publications around the world

Post by Tero-75 » Thu Dec 25, 2008 2:58 pm

As all the Strato fans know, there are many different version of Strato albums and singles published around the world.
Also there are fans (like me :D) who want to collect as many of those as possible.
Therefore I started this topic where I try to list all the Strato publications from all around the world. But most likely my list has errors, something missing etc. That's why I need your help. Do you know an album that is not listed here? Is there a wrong catalog number? Do you know a detail about some album? If you have anything to correct or to add, please tell me, and I will edit it here.

Yep. I found it in eBay, but in Finnish section of forum we talked about it. It most likely is a bootleg/pirate, 'cos there are songs under different labels. And you can't find that catalog number in NB-pages...

Very nice list, look like there is very much to collect :)

Visions Of Destiny is bootleg, audio is ripped from YLE tv broadcast called "Rrrock", so I think it shouldn't be on list.

Intermission Pt. 2 is a bootleg actually.
And I guess you could remove the test-pressings from the lists, because these are not official or public in any way.Those were only made to see if there were any errors in the actual pressing-equipment.
If you wanna list those though.....add the testpressings of Black Night 7" single and A million Lightyears Away 7" single also. I have those so I can confirm that they actually exist.

I know it is a bootleg, but it seems to have a reputation as an "official bootleg" so I included it in the list but removed it now.

Removed Intermission Pt. 2 from the list. I include the testpressing even they are not official, however they are not illegal copys either and therefore very wanted collectibles by some fans.
P.S If you ever want to sell those testpressings give me a hint :D

The copy I have was told to be one of the "real" demo cd's that was sent to record companies or something like that, I don't remember that well anymore. Yet it wouldn't be the first time (not the last for sure :lol:) I get cheated.

Is A million light years away 7" test pressing a black vinyl? :D

And does each vinyl release have test pressings? If it does, I think test pressings of course should be removed from the catalogue, like each Japan edition has sample releases. :) But on the other hand, test pressings are not the way as the Japan edition samples. Japan edition samples are the same as normal Japan editions, except sample stickers attached to and a "sample" word on CDs, they are exactly the same products. However, test pressings are not the same as the final retail products, they are often black vinyls without sleeves used on records for public sale. :wink:

Yes, it's a black vinyl with no prints or cover.Just a white slipcase with handwriting on it.
I don't know if all releases have test-pressings, but most do have.It's just a way to make sure that they don't send out a defective disc to the recordstores.

Interesting thing about this edition, Black Diamond and Kiss of Judas are reversed (on the CD, but not on the packaging). Always kind of annoyed me actually :x

I bought the Mexican Edition of Dreamspace, and didnt like the package. I would strongly recommend not to buy any of those, I think the label is called scarecrow ( tobi sammet inspired I guess ) and oh yeah I got the Noise edition of fourth dimension. :D nice. you gotta love that one.
