U2 Gloria 7" vinyl single (7 inch record) New Zealand U-207GL562303

U2 Gloria (Mega Rare 1981 New Zealand Special Limited Edition 7″ single released through Festival Records on the blue Island ‘sunset’ label, also featuring a previously unreleased live performance of ‘I Will Follow’, complete with the unique wraparound picture sleeve with a young looking group image on the front & the ‘October’ album advertisement on the back. The thin cover [VG] has succumbed to some ring wear & corner creasing with no tears & nothing that upsets the design [small spot of sticker residue from past sticker removal]. The vinyl grades VG with light hairlines & cosmetic surface marks not intruding on playback. By no means mint, this is still a very serviceable original that has survived its conditions against all odds. A must for any serious U2 collection K8510).
