RSD Black Friday 2020 - Have we hit a new low?

Boy 40th anniversary edition on white vinyl.

https://recordstoreday.com/SpecialRelease/13260

This is probably the laziest thing they’ve ever done for a release. They aren’t even trying anymore.

Better ideas for this year’s RSDBF:

- Boy live - a celebration of songs from Boy for its 40th anniversary
- a Boy tour concert
- Boy on white vinyl WITH A DISC OF THE EXTRAS THEY RELEASED ON CD IN 2008
- I Will Follow 12” 40th with new live tracks as a b side
- A Day Without Me 40th with live tracks
- Before Boy - a selection of demos and outtakes that became the debut album
- Passengers 25th anniversary edition
- the Joshua Tree live from the upcoming film Heartland
- Live in Berlin 2018
- literally anything else

Anton Corbijn directed film about the JT tour. It’s the concert plus a doco including the first ever live performance of Heartland at the site of the tree in Death Valley.

Bono mentioned all of that in a recent interview. U2songs had a story about it but not sure of release date yet. Was going to be a theatrical release and then Covid happened.

I don't think its so lazy. Lot of bands are always reaching to put something out on RSD and are content with a 'colored vinyl'. With only 10,000 copies I'm sure it'll get snagged up. RSD is more for the collectors now.

Thought it made sense myself considering Boy is 40 years old

I’ll definitely be trying to get it to add to my collection

I don't mind color ones.

Though, I was hoping they'd do a release with the ATYCLB b-sides/outtakes disc.

Yeah I have an original but maybe I'll get this.

It's sometimes hard to tell which RSD releases will actually be highly sought after and which will still be available months later, sometimes discounted. I got HMTMKMKM a few months after for like $10.

10,000 copies could mean it'll be available after, though not necessarily. The Alternate Rumours by fleetwood mac seems hard to find and had around 16,000 pressed. Though Rumours is still a massive album that's constantly on the Billboard charts. Then people went crazy for the Pearl Jam Unplugged which I think was pressed around 13k.

Side note, I think the Alternate versions of Fleetwood Mac studio albums is a cool way to do something a little different for RSD, with the regular running order using demos or outtakes.

10,000 pressings is a lot. There will be plenty to go around.
