Fake singles part four – the dutch Do you wanna dance?

I couldn't help notice that someone was selling the bootleg of this release as a "mega rare dutch single". On purpose or not, I don't know. But given the winning bid the buyer must have thought that this was the original pressing.
The single was released in Holland in 1978 and has a great live photo on the sleeve. It's quite hard to find today and it seems like a lot of the records was distributed to Sweden, a lot of the used copies over the years have been sold by swedish sellers.
I think the bootleg is a swedish pressing too. The easiest way to tell the difference is by looking at the label. The original pressing have a big centre hole. But you can also see the difference by looking at the sleeve. The original sleeve is wider, if you don't see the third tuning screw on Dee Dee base it is the fake sleeve. Klick the picture above.

Here is the "real" release. By the way, I have a decent extra copy of the original single up for trade. Send me a mail if you are interested.
