    I was just wondering if anyone had this. People have mentioned it briefly in other threads but so far no one has claimed to actually have one. I believe these were limited to a run of 500 for radio stations? I wish they would give this a wide release now.....

    I remember reading somewhere that they were going to do a direct to disc re-recording of this. Anything ever come of it?

    I have one.

    "There are two different versions - one on XL and one on V2. They have the same artwork and the same tracks. There are 300 of each making a total of 600. These were issued as promo albums to radio stations/music journalists/whoever

    The intention was to record a live version at a studio in New Zealand of the entire "Get Behind Me Satan" album to acetate (so that it couldn't be mixed/produced/edited) and make that the official vinyl release. Unfortunately, the studio concerned no longer had the equipment necesary to do this so the vinyl release of the album never happened."

    I have one. Sonics are NOT spectacular (it would not surprise me if the source was a CD). I also heard that the White Stripes intended to rerecord the entire album for a official vinyl release. Nothing came of it, though.

    p.s. my vinyl copy is not for sale

    I bought it
    I played it
    I wasn't impressed with it
    I sold it

    As previously stated, it's not anything special, most likely cd sourced. For completist collectors only...

    I could see them issuing this on the Vault.

    That seems like a no-brainer to me too. Perhaps for the next sign up promo... LOL, but I'll still have to find someone to rip it for me...Looking forward to getting my sign-up package soooon..
