Do we have any Ocean Shores experts here?
I got this "The Rape After" tape that differs in feel from my other Ocean Shores. The sleeve is thinner paper and the black on the sleeve print looks extra glossy, like other copies I have seen before. Also, the prints on the sleeve and tape-labels doesnt looks as sharp as they use to.
Anybody who came across a Ocean Shores release like this or owns another "The Rape After" to compare with?

Indeed it does. But the tape labels looks as bad.

Sorry to say but this looks like a bootleg to me. The label on the face of the tape should be glossy (this one looks photocopied) and also, original Ocean Shores face labels are often larger than the rectangle space reserved for sticker. This looks like someone has cut a photocopied label to fit.

You are absolutely right. Pretty well made though.
Got in recently in a trade, will get a new tape.

This tape doesnt have those large lables, but it looks legit right? On very light stock tape. Also got Ocean Shores print on the green part om the tape.

That's a bummer! But at least you own a nicely made bootleg now.

Yes, but I also got Centipede Horror on Laserdisc now instead of a real Rape After.
