Billie Joe Armstrong & Norah Jones – foreverly

Shortly before the death of Phil Everly, Billie Joe Armstong of Green Day fame and Norah Jones released a collaborative album entitled foreverly, which is a remaining of The Everly Brothers album Songs Our Daddy Taught Us.

The vinyl version of the album is pressed on standard weight black vinyl and comes housed in a gatefold jacket. A download code is not included, nor is a CD of the album, so if you want to legitimately listen to MP3’s of this album you will have to buy the same album twice. In this day and age it’s a slap to the face when a record released by the original rights holders do not include either a download code or CD. Considering the price tag for this record when it first came out, around $25 shipped, it’s an especially hard slap to the face.

No word on pressing info for this record, and since it’s released by a major label I doubt the amount of copies pressed will ever come out, if it’s even known. Prices on this record are starting to drop, most likely due to a of low sales, which is likely a direct result of the high price tag. As stated earlier, this record cost around $25 shipped initially, but you can get this for around $17 shipped now. Unless distros get extremely anxious and what to just get rid of every copy they have left of this thing, don’t hold your breath for this to go any cheaper. Major label records (not licensed ones released by a “label”) rarely get marked down to half price or lower.
