please post infomation about the known number of pressings for so called limited releases/editions.

for example: (if i am correct...) the msxep series from moving shadow are supposed to be limited to 1000 copies each.

Not all MSXEPs are limited to 1000. I think Blame was. Most I think are limited to 2500.

Shadow 100 and 100R1 are limited to 5000.

ASHADOW6LE I think is limited to 250 copies.

But then again... we can consider most jungle limited compared to the amounts released for people like J-Lo or Aguilera...

Things is that "limited" releases like the Seal vocal version of Blame or the illegal mix of The Finest are easier to get your hands on than for example Jo - R-Type, while the last isn't considered "limited".

Well, there's nothing mentioned on the sleeve of the original version... so that should be unlimited then :D
