Limited Edition ALMOST FAMOUS 200 Gram Vinyl Soundtrack
If you saw this album cover in a store you’d be forgiven for having no idea that it is a limited edition release of the soundtrack to director Cameron Crowe’s 2000 musical drama Almost Famous. But that’s what it is.
Then again, if you saw this album in a store that would be a very rare moment indeed.
Released by Classic Records (RTH 2001) and DreamWorks Records (RTH 2001) in 2009, this is a limited edition (of 2,500 units world wide) double LP various artists release that is filled with all kinds of mislabels and other notable collector goodies.
Note that the above image is what the cover looks like brand new – it is purposefully designed to appear worn.
Each of these releases includes over 500 pieces of collectable memorabilia from the film randomly distributed in the packaging. 25 of the 2,500 editions are also signed by Cameron Crowe. As these have been randomly distributed, you may or may not get a signed copy.
Aside from the bizarre ‘Untitled’ reference to Almost Famous, a couple of tracks are mislabeled on the actual record labels:
- Track A4 is mislabeled as Yes: I’ve Seen All Good People
- Track B1 on the record is mislabeled as 1. Every Picture Tells A Story”
- Track B1 on the back album cover is mislabeled as “4.”
All very confusing, yes.
