Wilco_A Ghost Is Born_CD_pre-release promo

This is the graphically-cryptic advance copy of Wilco’s A Ghost Is Born, released on Nonesuch Records. Despite its hip homemade packaging, the art concept is quite similar to the final release (below).

The disc inside this promo sleeve states:

NOT FOR SALE
Full album
program from
Nonesuch 79809
commercial release:
June 8, 2004.

Despite planning, however, the album was delayed for its U.S. release until 22 June 2004. The track listing on this advance disc is identical to the final release.

We proposed this album’s “Handshake Drugs” for one of the Laser’s Edge CD Samplers; the label refused to allow its licensing for the project.

Do you want this item?  I’m satisfied to own my finished copy, and don’t need to hang onto this collectible.  Just e-mail me at spitballarmy (at) aol (dot) com.  We can work something out.
