Suprise Release - SOI Already on Vinyl!
Original story (u2wanderer.org) by Aaron J. Sams (2014-09-29)
Perhaps a way to break the Grammy cutoff tomorrow? Starting yesterday Amoeba Records in California were selling a limited number of 12-inch white label copies of the new U2 album. This is a one-disc release with just the songs that were available in the iTunes release, with no bonus track. The black vinyl has a white label on each side reminiscent of what we saw in the Apple release. And the whole thing is being released in a white sleeve. It is NOT an Amoeba exclusive however, and one store in Long Island is now selling these, but only to customers who visit in store. Amoeba estimated having 20-30 copies per store and the store in NY says 300 copies were pressed. More info as we find it…(Amoeba is now sold out – sorry!) The catalog number for this release is B0022141-02 and the UPC code is 6 02547 05525 5. Copyright information and the Interscope logo are on side B.
