  1. So the outside box was heavy duty, much like the AB20 box, and the design was based on The Virtual Road poster. Within were 4 x 12'' vinyl, the four VR live EPs, in sleeves identical to their digital covers. Paris was blue, white & red marble. Mexico was lemon yellow. Slane was green, white and gold. Red Rocks was, er, red. Fans were united in awe and wonder! Then I woke up... But ye can have the idea for nothing!! 🤫
  2. Hugely entertaining. We watched as a family and loved it, both for the memories and the day that was in it. Felt like home. #GRMMA
  3. The breadth of subscribers' wishes is impressive, but probably means keeping none of the people happy any of the time. In recent times I've been a member of the Pearl Jam, REM (10 years gone, so maybe not that recent!) and The Killers' equivalents of the fan club. I would still maintain that the U2 gifts compete with any of those, both in terms of quantity and quality of music and physical format. I do think that the website, with the exception of the spell between 2009-2011, has been under-utilised from a music point of view, particularly live tracks and shows. Pearl Jam and Bruce Springsteen lead the way there, albeit not freely. Unless musical, the 'subscriber specials' on u2.com are a bit spurious in terms of what they provide, while real news inevitably breaks elsewhere. Maybe websites and forums in general have been overtaken by social media. Separately, the request for a pony puts me in mind of that great Irish classic, Horse Outside by the Rubberbandits...
  4. An bhfuil cead agam dul amach?!

  5. Music of any variety is always great. I've always enjoyed the CDs/ vinyl. The music track on the DVD was superb quality and the 4K stream looked amazing. And the wav downloads of the R&H promo were a class touch. Much appreciated. The 'subscriber specials' were great circa 2009-2011, live streams/ full tracks, but the musical content has tailed away since. Always secretly hoping for either a Flash Postcard or 7'' vinyl flexidisc revival 😉
  6. From Music Zone @CorkVegan? I'm sure the colours are deeper & the sound is clearer on vinyl from Douglas 😉
  7. With apologies for the double post, I just love the idea of bombarding the world with enough vinyl to make it 1975 again @dmway!
  8. To be fair, the majority of U2 vinyl releases through UMG have wav download cards and that's much appreciated, along with the vinyl fanclub releases in mp3/wav. With RSD the objective is to give the shops involved a shot in the arm and early downloads would potentially undercut that. I'm very happy for vinyl to have centre stage in 2019! I honestly have no gripe with or criticism of the status quo. But you can't play records in the car. (Yet!!) 😎 Audacity = hard. Downloads = easy. Pure laziness! Hopefully once the vinyl is sold out the digital versions will follow.
  9. I'm happy to lend weight to every 'release the wavs' call, particularly for vinyl-only releases. I'd be just as happy to get it from Qobuz or 7 Digital though or on a download card with the record.
  10. Superb release. Great packaging and great tunes. I think demand on the ground was up on other years too. Could we get wav downloads on u2.com or could I add my voice to those looking for a for-purchase digital release? There is a clamour for rips/ copies from folks who were unable to get to a participating store so the demand is there.
  11. Loving the downloads. What a tune The Little Things is... It's hard to believe that it was difficult to record. It sounds very slick. Hopefully we'll hear it live again.
  12. The key thing for any artist is what is left to say. Having devoted the best part of the decade to these records, you'd imagine that some downtime was in order. I loved the times article, plus the journalist's own edit on her site. Great pics too.
