On White Vinyl
From 'I Will Follow' to 'Shadows and Tall Trees' it was forty years ago this month that the band's debut album Boy was released.
If you're old enough to have bought a copy at the time, chances are you bought it on vinyl and in your local record store. And to celebrate Boy's fortieth, the album returns next month in a special limited edition release on white vinyl to mark Black Friday and Record Store Day UK.
Recorded at Windmill Lane Studios in Dublin and produced by Steve Lillywhite, Boy was originally released on 20th October 1980 and features the singles 'A Day Without Me' and 'I Will Follow' as well as live staples 'Out Of Control' and 'The Electric Co.'.
The limited edition white vinyl pressing includes an additional double-sided poster plus a lyrics/credits insert. The release is exclusive to independent retailers for Black Friday, November 27th, 2020. Find a participating shop.
