    Another reissue of The Joshua Tree?

    Fan comes into the record shop (assuming one can find one)…
    And he’s peeling off those dollar bills.
    Slapping them down.
    One hundred. Two hundred.

  2. Very pricey.

      I think the mega version runs about $100. I just thought I’d whip out the “Bullet the Blue Sky” reference.
