U2's Record Store Day Vinyl Accidentally Packaged with Tool EP
Published Apr 20, 2015Over the weekend, independent vinyl retailers were packed to the gills with customers looking for some of those sweet, sweet Record Store Day exclusives. Among those releases was a vinyl edition of U2's Songs of Innocence, which we declared the second worst RSD release of 2015. Despite our claim, many fans bought the record anyway — but some copies were stuffed with the wrong 12-inch release.
As FACT reports, a handful of fans picked up a copy of the Songs of Innocence release to find that the sleeves had instead been packaged with Tool's 1992 Opiate EP.
While it's unclear just how many U-Tool releases were distributed, it'll be interesting to see if they become a collector's item of their own. The actual Song of Innocence Record Store Day release is currently listed between $85 and $330 CDN on Discogs.
