Digital Issue
I applaud encouraging people to buy vinyl, but as someone who doesn't have a record player, I feel I am missing out on lots of rare material only issued on vinyl over the last few years. Wouldn't if be fairer if U2 issued on vinyl initially then waited 6month to a year then issued it digitally?

Larry we need your help..............
Dear Bono, Larry, Adam and The Edge and U2.com These special record store day / black friday releases by U2 should be made available to their true fans. So by offering a selection to U2.com members makes it fair. Record Store Day and Black Friday events are great for independent record stores but the flip side of that is that the true fans miss out on their favourite releases. I have been to quite a few of these record store day events and the first 20 people at the front of the queue are record traders that buy the most sort-after releases and then 20 minutes later put them on eBay at double, treble the retail price. If i was to queue at my local record store i would have to set my alarm at 4am, join the queue and still not be guaranteed a copy of this release! I have participated in these events twice now and on both occasions the U2 release has sold out. So i appeal to you guys at U2.com......please help and hold a selection of these records back so that true fans of U2 can purchase a copy. Larry we need you.............if you are reading this.......please help........it makes sense...........you guys are the band we love. These records and your music means so much to us. These special records should be made available to true fans!!!!!!!
