Didn't know the Lazy Spiral Mix was ever supposed to go on vinyl. The original is on the Pleiadians EP ( http://www.discogs.c...P/release/93228 ). Alcyone promo vinyl is out there but expensive as mentioned above. I did get my copy for 4 Es :D, guess I got lucky.

Well the thing is indeed unique but looking like some homemade pressing because dragonfly never (as far as i know) pressed alcyone and zeta reticuli together, so i am dubious.
If authentic is just a test when they were deciding what to do and on a 250gr vinyl, hmmm, weird.

Also, it does costs a fortune and doesn't have the wonderful engraved star system that for me is worth the price of the original EP.
I paid 150 eur for my mint copy of Alcyone in early 2000/1 and that is a fair price for it, i must say, since it's really unique.
This one is suspiciously looking like a bootleg (:

But if someone is really having that much extra cash, go for it, it's just 1k!

Agreed. Acetates (aka dubplates) are not pressed but carved. Also, they generally have a metal core with a lacquered surface which permits this kind of production. That's what makes them heavy. They don't compare to vinyls because there's no vinyl. Also, there are no masters nor moulds, because the whole thing is a master, sort of.

 

The listing doesn't tell where this plate came from. In fact, it only says "containing 2 superb classic tracks from the year 1996" without really stating that the item would be from 1996. Unless there's a good story behind it (and preferably a proof of authenticity), I don't see how it would be any different from an unlabelled two-sided dubplate you could order yourself. They're not that expensive. I recall something like 50e each. Producing a single copy is completely viable - even a standard practice.

 

Note that acetates wear a lot faster than vinyl. You couldn't even play it that many times. Not much point in paying huge amounts for an unverified acetate which may be just a random private bootleg. This probably has nothing to do with the Alcyone single or its moulds.
