There's three Jochen Simms mixes. The first two were held back on Monday and just saw release on Friday.

These are the five that came out on Friday:
Dark Intensity Remix (4:28)
Isak Salazar & Erick Ibiza Remix (7:02)
Jochen Simms Remix (5:38)
Jochen Simms Dub (5:38)
Jochen Simms Deep Mix (5:28)

This is a look at how I handle the older singles. Everything is sorted by artist (U2) and then by the date and type of release (2000 Single 01 - Beautiful Day) and then inside that directory I sort by type of media (12, CD, CD-PR for promos) and then country, and finally catalog number and usually any distinguishing features.

Discography & Releases / Sorting singles in this download-only era

I'm wondering how many of you have been sorting the recent singles on your computers.

I have always put the different releases of the same single into one folder, and I just tag each with a different disc number.  So for example, I put all the different versions of the Elevation single as different discs of the same release, so:
1 - CID780 (UK CD1)
2 - CIDX780 (UK/EU CD2)
3 - CIDT780 (EU 2-track CD)
4 - CIDZ780 (EU CD1)
5 - CIDY780 (EU "Tour Edition" CD)
6 - UK promo 12" (12ELE2)
7 - some promo CDR tracks that are super-rare and I don't own

That was easy, though of course the order is certainly up for debate.  But now that there are three singles from the current album with no physical releases, how is sorting to be done?  For example, with the first single, You're The Best Thing About Me, there were three tracks sold individually: the album version, the Kygo mix, and the acoustic version.  Also, the Sci-Fi Soul Mix was made available as a promotional download.  As each of the tracks were sold individually, do you sort them as three different discs, each being track 1 of 1?  I've thought about that, though it seems awkward.  I've sorted them as tracks 1, 2, and 3 of 3 of the same disc, and I chose the order based on release date.  Then I label the promo as disc 2, so:
Disc 1:
  1. album version
  2. Kygo mix
  3. acoustic version
Disc 2:
  1. Sci-Fi Soul Mix

I sort the Get Out Of Your Own Way single similarly, with the three commercially available tracks being on disc 1, sorted by release date (Switch remix, Afrojack remix, and acoustic version), and then disc 2 is similar (radio edit, full Switch remix, extended Afrojack remix).

Lastly, and I only mention this because now things get more weird, is the Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way single.  First, a 3-track "EP" was released, so that's obviously disc 1.  But then, each separately, came the acoustic version, Cheat Codes version, and Beck remix.  Are they tracks 4-6 of disc 1 (that's what I did) or should they be tracks 1-3 of disc 2, since the EP release is sort of its own thing?  I don't think they should be each on their own disc.  As for all those additional promo-only releases out there, I'm not sorting them anywhere until I know if they're officially released or not - it seems like to much effort to bother with if a bunch of tracks change from promo to commercial soon.

So...what different organizing methods are my co-collectors using?

Apparently, there'll be another three:

- Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way (Jochen Simms Deep Remix) (5:28)
- Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way (Dark Intensity Remix) (4:28)
- Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way (Isak Salazar & Eric Ibiza Dubby Mix) (7:02)

Yes those were sent on Friday. Although the name we were given for the last one is the Isak Salazar & Erick Ibiza Remix. Track times match what we were given.

Are you sure about the timing of the Jochen Simms remix?  The recent posting on YouTube is 5:38 in length, so is it not the same mix?  It's also not called "Deep", and it sounds like it fades in, so if indeed your 5:28 is correct and not 5:38, then it sounds like what's on YouTube is an edit of a longer existing mix.

I understand why they did it, to fill up four sides of vinyl, but it's kind of strange that Zooropa got two remixes tagged on to the album for this release. It sticks out like a sore thumb. The inclusion of One Tree Hill on 80-90 is more understandable because at least that was on the original release in some regions.

The DrewG. remix dropped Monday is different than the original one which came out, with additional vocals. Site is being updated now.

Interesting!  I had guessed it was the same given the identical timing.  So Citrusonic has posted the new remix on their YouTube page along with the other new releases (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8d4dNH2EPo).

Thanks for the eyes.  I'm bad with months sometimes.  :)

Also, on the lyrics page you noted that the release date is July 11, not June.

So that leaves, R&H, Passengers, NLOTH and Best of 90/00 and U218 as having not been released on vinyl since 2007.

Any corrections?

U218 is still in print and is regularly repressed. There was a refresh a few years back of that one. The icons on the back are slightly differently sized.

R&H also had a more recent pressing in Europe, think it dates to around 2010, and is still pretty common to find. The pressing coming in October will use the new remaster that was also used for iTunes. (The Rattle and Hum news is here: http://www.u2songs.com/news/new_vinyl_releases_july_27) Both NLOTH and the Best Of 1990 - 2000 should be out on or before next April. That will leave Passengers.
