U2 in the August 2006 issue of Record Collector

Haven't seen this edition posted anywhere here yet, so I thought I'd scan and post the issue I just bought for anyone who might be interested....

Oh and I found this little mention in the same issue....

The Zooropa/Stay Australian box is worth £100 now??? Bought that in France 11 years ago for approx. $25... Also have the black Numb (also has appreciated VERY nicely), and all the JT Collection singles (alas w/o misprint and box...). Also have a Pop press kit but it's US (got one for free at the K-Mart press con), still has most of the stuff in it... again

I've got a Best of 1990-2000 Press Kit... no big deal on that one though.

I know I'm late, but I still wanted to say:

Thank you for the lovely scans, hcbiggs2002!!!

I saw the magazine up for auction on Ebay and couldn't help thinking: I'd love to read that article and see what the u2 top 60 is.

Of course, knowing full well I wouldn't own any of it.

So I was thrilled to discover you had posted scans of it here!

That is until I got to #53.
That one was for sale in a local music store for $25.
And I knew it was worth more than $25.
Because I think I checked the price on atu2.com when I had seen it on Ebay before that.
But I thought : $25 is quite a lot for a record I can't even play.
'Cause I don't have a record player.
And I was also thinking that it could have easily been a fake.
So I left it hanging there.
Thinking maybe I'll buy it next time, I come here.
When of course, it wasn't there anymore.

But then I moved to the right and saw the picture for #56.
And it looked awfully familiar.
'Cause I had gone to a record store here in town (last Saturday) I had never been before to see if they had any special u2 records.
The only 7" I could find was the WOWY promo.
I was kinda disappointed.
As I already own the Austrian WOWY cd-single, the normal 7" WOWY single + another WOWY promo.
It didn't have a price on it.
So I brought it to the counter and the man of the store looked at it and said: that'll be 2 dollars.
Alright, I thought.
With WOWY being your all time favorite u2 song, you can't not buy it if it's only two dollars.

Anyway, I see the picture in your scan and read what it says at #56.
US 7" mispressing on translucent brown/copper vinyl.
Oh, nevermind.
Mine is black, is what goes through my mind.
But it won't hurt to check.
So I'm sitting on my bed.
Next to the window.
And as soon as I get the vinyl out of the pink sleeve, I can tell it's not black (which is how it looked in the store) at all.
I hold it in front of me and it's translucent brown/copper indeed.
Can you believe it!!!
I sure couldn't.
I was so surprised.
But what a nice surprise!!!
