A find or a hoax ?
« on: January 10, 2009, 04:50:05 AM »
Hi there !

Sounds like a hoax to me - but its not April Fools Day yet !!

This was someone else's find on Yahoo, and they posted it on the Blindman's Blues Forum.
Not trying to steal their thunder - just thought you guys here would want to see it NOW !

Hoax or con. He gives it away by pretending to know nothing about the subject while dropping clues aimed at drawing-in 'experts', like the coy 'furniture company' reference which everyone is supposed to think is 'Paramount' of course.

Con man. Some people out there will be so desperate to believe it's true he'll probably succeed in conning someone, I bet there are back-channel messages flying around as we speak designed to part someone from their money. Classic con technique, if it's too good to be true it probably isn't, see 'Nigerian money transfer'.

Thanks for the heads up, snakehips.

My two cents: Metal (Paramount?) stampers, and possible test records (HC Speir tests anyone?) and artwork, and film of Patton, Brown and Sims. Seems like hoax overkill to me. I'll happily be proven wrong though!

This is from 4 years ago...
You'd think we would have heard something by now if it existed.. O0

That is how it would go down though, more than likely...
It would be someone that finds it who knows nothing of music...
