"To celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the long-playing record, Universal Music Group is delighted to announce the release of 80 titles (in four batches) on much-loved 30cm black vinyl across 2008, starting with the first batch of 20 titles in July 2008. All will be exact replicas of the original packages. Classics of the past sixty years will be available again!
But this is not merely some history exercise for dewy-eyed oldies. Each album contains a voucher enabling the purchaser to download MP3 versions of the songs within. The releases will begin in July."
ABBA The Album 2008 vinyl
icethesite reader, Andrew has told of his thwarted attempts to find the album in the UK until he stumbled across online store what records and shares the direct link to The Album Deluxe Gatefold 180 gram Audiophile Vinyl LP (below). The picture on the website does not reflect that the album being sold features the blue cover we got back in 1978. Andrew’s pictures of his own copy (in protective clear case) bought from the site are shown above.
The black sticker reads: Back To Black, 60th Anniversary premium audiophile pressing on heavyweight 180 gram vinyl in all original packaging.
The price of the album is £16.99.
