I picked up a few of the Japan mini LPs that Rykodisc licensed out.

I know that mini LPs are pretty often bootlegged. The ones I have appear to be legit but I am a bit concerned because the track times on Absolutely Free seem off, ie. the previous song ends 2-3 seconds into the next track.

Everything else seems right. Catalog number in the center of the disc and all. Anyone know if the bootlegs for these are that well made?

Could you please elaborate a little? Do you know its catalog number, barcode, matrix numbers, etc that may help identifying it?

Catalog# is VACK-1204 like it should be and it's on the CD's inner ring.

Everything about it seems right, except the track times. I know Absolutely Free runs together but the tracks are definitely off-timed by a second or two.

It is very surprising as I would expect a superior quality from a Videoarts pressing.
The matrix numbers may contain clues to help you checking if it is legit or a counterfeit.
