How does a double vinyl have space for all 12 album tracks, Chain Gang, 5 live tracks and 3 unreleased songs?

One disc for the album and the other disc for the bonus tracks.

The 3 unreleased tracks will ensure I buy it again.

Yay!

I can’t wait to buy this album and not play it.

Mint in box & sealed is all that counts.

Quite close with my contents guess then.
Not sure anyone has actually had any confirmation or information on accessing the album via VIP tickets yet. Made more misleading as Sam's 'leaked' hint at the press release 6 days ago linked the offer to both the other gigs too.
No surprise he pulled the info really.
Even with PR help, this remains a confusing announcement (compared to other press releases about product releases).
Is the album vinyl only and only 200 per 'region' - if so, great for collectors and ebay scum and crap for anyone else.
Or... More hopefully, a vinyl exclusive version with other formats being available minus the goodies.
The piss-poor marketing info strikes again - perhaps they could take more time over it instead of trying to hunt me down on Instagram to shout at me for sharing the info early (by me, I mean some random person called FWD on IG). Sigh.
Assuming it's only a very limited vinyl release, people will fight over it. It won't be easily accessible and selling a kidney to buy it will be the only option if that is the case.
The indie record shops tend to go off press releases - if this is what is circulating as 'details', it may be a while until more is known.
Normally a bit more enthusiastic, but it's easier to be so when presented with clearer facts. 3 unreleased songs could well be Dreamers Eyes, By The Time... & single version of My Love or Clearmountain ATYPMFIL - which isn't really that deluxe. Judy, Hank, Rose Garden & You'll Be Gone leaves a 5th live track - guesses? That said, as suggested, it could be live takes in the studio of those songs (but calling them live is just plain odd when they delineate them from 'unreleased').
I will stop moaning now.
Regards,
FWD.

Edit: what exactly is a 'billboard' cover of Chain Gang!?

Do you know what a double album is?
Yeah, smart-ass. It's a double LP, which - with 20 tracks rammed on it - will sound like absolute f***ing GARBAGE. Perfectly suited to the crap that's on it and the people who will buy it.

Reissue, repackage. Extra track and a tacky badge.

What complete, hypocrotical f***ing LOSER he's become. Carry on then...

Billboard was the source of the "touching" quote.

But the regular album was already spread across two discs. Just under 54 minutes is quite a lot to cram into one vinyl.
Was it?
