    Record Store Day limited release as a four-LP set, is it really limited ??
    There are so many for sale on eBay !!

    • Alan Fenwick says:

      It’s one of the hardest RSD releases to get your hands on this year, hence the reason you’re seeing so many on Ebay (easy money for those that are into that sort of thing), It’s limited to 1,000 copies USA and 500 the rest of the world.

  2. Sam says:

    A pity it’s not a CD/DVD release like the recent Eric Clapton Unplugged re-release. The DVD has a nice 5.1 surround mix.

  3. DaveDogFacedBoy says:

    I too wonder why this isn’t a 2 DVD 1 DVD package. The complete 2001 video is out there on bootleg (includes The Great Beyond and La Bamba). The complete video of the 1991 session would be nice to see too.

  4. 386320 says:

    the RSD edition is not numbered so we must believe to the list in RSD site??
    in that list they stated 2000 pieces for Ghostbusters 10″ while I got copy n. 2054 and on Ebay I saw a number over 5000 !!

  5. Alan Fenwick says:

    386320 I’ve seen the debate surrounding the Ghostbusters disc, many different reports for the numbers on that, i’ve seen people say 1,000, 2,000 etc and now were seeing numbers in the high 5,000’s. Also i’ve heard reports of people receiving them without a number at all, so it’s all a bit strange that one.

    As far as REM goes, the numbers for that are a lot more believable, they sold out damn quick and many stores only got 1 or 2 copies. When the online sales went live, I counted only 3 stores so far that had any stock left to sell online, and if you blinked you were too late.

    Numbers on ebay so far suggest around 150 sets sold so far, so thats only 10% of the total sale, so it’s not a lot really.

    Im glad to see this being released on cd.
    Some of the prices are outrageous already and it deserves a wide release. I have the original first show on boot cd for ages and its excellent. One of the bonus tracks is Stipe and members of U2 and REM doing U2’s “One” before a D.C. show, which I liked better than the original, essential. Unfortunately it was a bonus on a boot and unlikely to ever find an official release.

    The U2 and REM supergroup (Automatic Baby) version of “One” was actually available on the Childline compilation CD. See below:
