Well done!
I bought Poop Chute on audio cassette back when it was first released in 1997, mainly because the car I was driving at the time only had a cassette-player.
I got the Brown Album, Poop Chute and Eat Your Peas on CD- all second-hand copies via eBay. My best find on eBay was a used copy of the old Breakfast Tapes CD from 1990.
I have never seen Get This- Illegal Download CD come up for sale on eBay, probably unlikely ever to happen given how rare they are.
Pete.

I too got all 3 M/M albums from ebay and am still looking for that elusive illegal download but its not likely to come up.
but on the topic of op shops ive had some great finds which i think i may have posted about before. one of the best was when I managed to get vol. 1 and vol. 3 of the best bits of the late show on VHS for 50c each. not sure what happened to vol. 2. Oh well, one day

I found a copy of Grey and Spicy Boom Boom on vinyl at a garage sale, one of my best finds.
I found a copy of the Breakfast Tapes brand new in Borders in Melbourne Central in 2006, I didn't buy it due to the price though, it was over $40 IIRC.
Now a'Tweetin'.

I've got a VHS copy of Volume 2 you can have. Send me your postal details via a private message and I will send it to you free. Cheers, Pete

Illegal Download is basically just the tracks and the sleeve which you can burn and print out yourself. BYO disc & case.

Someone did put Illegal Download on eBay a few months back, with a reserve price that was insulting to all concerned (esp the GT team). Further, who'd know if it was legit or just burned & printed the day before ? There were no pix in the listing to suggest otherwise.

I've never seen a pic of a legit Illegal Download CD. Anyone ?

Do we know what the legit Illegal Download disc looked like? Did it have artwork on the disc itself?
