u2 relases on vinyl

A number of U2 releases have become quite rare on vinyl. Which releases would you like to purchase on vinyl that are not generally available right now?

I voted Pop, with Zooropa as a close second. Admittingly, I never listen to vinyl, but those would be my picks if I did.

Zooropa, Pop, and ATYCLB. I have all of their 80's output along with NLOTH and SOI. I just need AB-HTDAAB and I'll be done!

Seems like ALL the harder to get vinyl might be re-issued soon

The two best of LPs are ridiculously expensive to get hold of nowadays. 80s goes for 150+ and the 90s one will set you back around 100. I remember at the time I couldn't even find the 80s on on vinyl when it was released! It's the only one I haven't got so yeah, reissue that please.

That would be amazing. I really hope sales are good and they do the rest of their discography.

Im pretty sure that IF they stick to the harder to find albums, they will shift the re-issues in decent numbers. There will be a fair amount of interest in them i would imagine

I'm a fan for nearly four years now and started to collect vinyl when I was in high school. I have collected every album except Original Soundtracks and No Line and a. I also have a  few 12'' singles (completed the trabant of AB last month :) ) and have some other special releases.


Well, I have to admit: Zooropa, Leave Behind and Dismantle are bootlegs paid around 20 for it. But Pop was 80 for me. The bootlegs are a bit crappy. Two last tracks of Dismantle are getting noisy fast. Leave Behind has a very small pinhole, so when you take it from your turntable it bows. Zooropa is all noisy.

I wanted to find the original Zooropa and No Line (Bomb and Leave are way too expensive) to finish my collection and be happy about it. The fun and joy of collect those vinyl is to get LP's for a decent price (not really counting the bootlegs. That fun is going to disappear a bit I'm afraid, and paying so much for Pop could be useless (it wouldn't I'm still very happy!). But we'll see.

You could always ignore any re-issues and concentrate on trying to pick up original presses of the albums your after. Exactly how the re-issues might affect the originals issues prices, remains to be seen.
As for Bootleg copies..i have no interest in owning them at all. Id rather go without a vinyl copy tbh
