CD and vinyl in one format? Yup, that’s what happened to ‘Is Apollo Still Alive?’, the new single from Rave The Reqviem
Yes – you read that correctly. The first 100 copies of the “Is Apollo Still Alive?” CD (available here) are in fact ‘a hybrid CD/vinyl’ – a format so rare that it doesn’t even really have a name and is only produced by one company on the planet.
Below you can see how that looks like as DWA provided us a picture of the final product.
The CD comes with a special plastic adaptor already inserted, in order to facilitate playback on a record deck. The vinyl track is lathe-cut around the outer-most part of the CD (see also the picture), with the regular CD-audio data occupying the remaining space inside creating a highly unusual and unique artefact.
“Is Apollo Still Alive?” is released on October 9th, and can be pre-ordered now. Be fast if you want to be sure of picking up one of the lathe-cut CD-vinyl hybrid disc versions.
