As much as we here at the Tone Deaf office love Record Store Day, we must admit it can be an upheaval, even when things are going to plan. From making sure you get to your favourite stores before they sell-out of your choice picks, to battling the maddening crowds, it can be a stressful ordeal.
That's why you've got to feel extra sorry for the poor souls who made it to their local record store in time to pick up a highly coveted vinyl copy of arena mega-stars U2's Songs Of Innocence, which you may remember as that album that showed up in your iTunes library without explanation last year.
What happened? Well, if you're yet to pierce the seal of your own copy of Songs Of Innocence on vinyl, you may want to go and double check that you got the right album. As FACT reports, several copies of the record somehow ended up with Tool's 1992 Opiate EP inside the sleeve.
Twitter user Kristin Waite first tweeted about the error, writing, "Reports of a misprint/press/packaging of U2 [Songs Of Innocence] release for event - some getting 2013 Tool LP." Waite appropriately hash-tagged her missive with "#oops".
