Orange Best Of CD?

Orange instead of gold. Anybody know the story on this?
Misprint? Rarity? Unauthorized copy?

Hmm.. that's strange. Is it yours, or did you hear about it? Do you have a picture? Is it the gold B-side disc or the white disc? UF discs sometimes turn brown from being hot in the CD tray over the years, so I'm wondering if that Best Of disc turned colour from something similar. But if it's really bright orange, that's obviously not the case. Interesting though.

If you're talking about the actual cover being orange, I've seen them once or twice.

Oh, it's the white disc. It's the notes and the liner that are orange instead of gold. And someone found out for me. It was specially manufactured for a BMG music club.

BMG and Columbia House are discount mail order music companies in North America. Their catalogs generally consist of music that's at least a year old that the label/artist agree to sell at a discount rate. Sometimes they print their own runs for cds which can have lower quality lines and cd art. I have a couple pearljam cds from them that have the completely wrong colour. When I was younger I used them to get the antire U2 cd catalog up to Achtung Baby for about $6 a cd.
