Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols (Nippon Columbia CN-E19-99-600-00/A.J6)
Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols (Universal Music CD-2000-633)
Released: 1999? / 2000?
Notes. Two different editions of Chinese origin.
Both of dubious legitimacy.
'Nippon Columbia' pressing has incorrect cover font for a start, but the 'Universal Music' pressing features The Police on the cover and the disc, and includes a track entitled 'Sex Pistols'. It has a stated release date of 2000. Hilarious.

Simon Proudman explains: I lived and worked/commuted to China between 1997 and 2005 and was also an avid collector of music. Releases on CD would appear suddenly, and vanish equally as suddenly. Around 1999 the semi-official Bollocks appeared in many shops for about two months. 'Made in Germany (yeah, no way!) Nippon Columbia (equally no way, a Japanese company in China!), with a Chinese language cover and an official release code CN-E19-99-600-00/A.J6. Full CD, not CDR and wrap around cardboard cover, with CD cover and disc inside. Blink and you would have missed it.

About 6 months after it had vanished, in the following year, a copy appeared for a month or so before going the same way. A lot of effort had clearly gone into this one, as a certain Sting was now the cover star along with the rest of his band. And, a clearly Nirvana influenced title had appeared "Never Mind. The Bollocks". Allegedly manufactured in the UK. If only. And no Chinese characters, so probably aimed at tourists only, while the original was for the home market also. Again a full CD and probably the rarest of the two as I only ever saw it once, while the original 'Bollocks' was available almost in every Beijing CD shop for a while before it vanished."
