My favourite was a cheap compilation of Mississippi blues, misidentified as a collection of Kay Kyser. Every single track.
There are many, many mis-matches on Amazon between images and actual product. I'm guessing because someone enters a wrong UPC code. There appears to be no way to report when this happens. This one I encountered recently. I thought I had scored a copy of this Timofeyeva disc of Haydn sonatas:
I didn't notice that when I placed it in my shopping cart, something altogether different appeared there:
The second one is what I received today in the mail.
Interestingly the Amazon blurb said there are two pianists (doesn't say who plays what) - Bakhchiev and Kuzmin, but the disc itself only mentions Kuzmin. Also no recording dates, so I really have no idea what I've got. Hanging on to it though.
Try placing the first on in your cart and you'll see.
