Edge’s picture on the vinyl and CD singles of With or Without You are different.

Mind blown.

A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

I have neither of those, so am doubly jealous.

That IS interesting, though...

Well spotted!

I only ever owned the 7" vinyl copy. My mate had the CD version. The question i have now is, is the 12" vinyl different still......or maybe even different to the 7" vinyl?

It’s been documented

The single sleeve, shot by Anton Corbijn, featured a black-and-white photo of The Edge sitting on arid, sandy ground with his shadow stretched behind him. On vinyl and cassette formats, The Edge is looking forward. For CD (as well as the outer “long box” housing the cassette version in some territories), an alternate photo was used, with The Edge looking to one side. “With or Without You” was the first U2 single to be released on CD concurrently with other formats.

Yeah I noticed this in 1987. Do you even U2?  ;)
