I have all the singles released on cd as far as i know, sans the digi of WGRYWH that i didn't know exsisted till a month ago, and 1 or 2 NLOTH singles. But everything from Fire on to the new stuff i have on cd.

How do you find all these rare U2 CDs, DesertSky? Around where I live, there's slim pickings and when I look on the internet everything is way overpriced.
Title: Re: Zooropa 2 disc i just bought
Post by: Tumbling Dice on August 18, 2010, 01:47:34 PM
Well I have a copy of each of the 12 studio albums and even my Rattle & Hum is on the fritz.

well the trick is to always check the used cd stores, i can walk to 2 of the best used stores in dallas. plus ive been traveling alot this year, i was in both Portlands Oregon and Maine so i SCOURED those cities.
i've bought a few on ebay, overpriced, but ive never seen them in stores, ala the Lemon remix single, the UF EP <no not WAIA>, WLCTT is the most recent i got. I find if you scope out the right stores and hit them often, you'll find the stuff you're looking for. Oh, plus i've been collecting since the Pop days :)

I've heard a lot of the non album songs, I just don't have any desire to own them in physical form.

Post by: soapit on August 26, 2010, 11:49:02 PM
it's nothing that special, its just the stay single (swing format) together with zooropa album in a special box.

when it came out i was quite jealous of a friend who got it and wasnt a big fan but wouldnt sell it too me. (i didnt know it was out till it was gone - i lived in the country).

then i saw the single by iteself and bought that, too easy.

years later i bought the stay single (live format) and it came with a nice enpty spot for my swing format single. i ditched the swing format cover and used the nifty double case. he was stuck with his crappy cardboard sleeve. god had given me a crushing victory over that knob who wouldnt sell me the original disc.

i'm still friends with him too so life just worked out great on all fronts.
