The God Save The Sex Pistols' counterfeit/bootleg guide

Counterfeit or bootleg? If the word counterfeit is taken literally, it means fake reproductions masquerading as the originals. These releases are 'new', although they feature tracks previously released officially. Therefore, these releases should be classed as bootlegs.

Virgil Records

Bodies / Johnny B. Goode - Roadrunner (Virgil VDJ 25)

Notes: Surfaced August 2005.

Bodies is listed on the label as 'Not from the Double Album The Great Rock 'N' Roll Swindle VD2510'. The B side, Johnny B Goode/Roadrunner is listed as 'From the Double Album The Great Rock 'N' Roll Swindle VD2510'. The label is Virgil instead of Virgin, with a logo of 'Virgil' from Thunderbirds. Limited to 600 copies and mostly taken up by Japanese DJs.

The label shown above is reproduced in the style of the Virgin 'Swindle' singles, released 1979 - 1980. The A-side label (not shown) is the same as the colour label used on the genuine Virgin 'Swindle' singles.
