Secret Record Store Day 2015 release signed by Paul McCartney. A first wave of records appeared in selected shops in the UK on 6th-7th of April 2015. Selected shops in the US received a single copy and were instructed to not advertise it or include it with the rest of the RSD releases, but to hide it under the Paul McCartney section at RSD 18th of April. Each side contains a different unreleased alternate mix of “Hope For The Future”.
Allegedly limited to 100 copies worldwide.
The record was originally released in a white generic die-cut cardboard jacket, a thin white inner sleeve and an inserted card with details of how to download a ‘3D printable Paul’ figurine.
As reported by Discogs, as of 2020, the median sale price for this limited edition is $986.
From The Daily Beatle blog:
Paul McCartney has had pressed up a limited number of white label vinyl 12” “Sweet Thrash Mix” of “Hope For The Future”. In the grooves you will find two exclusive mixes of “Hope For The Future” not available on standard limited edition 12 inch record. The record is supposed to be a hidden gem for customers to find on Record Store Day. Participating stores have been told to quietly place the record in the Paul McCartney bin before opening their store that day. They are specifically advised not to place it among the other Record Store Day exclusives. When a customer brings it to the register to purchase, the clerk is asked to tell them about the rarity of this release and take their picture. The store is then requested to tag the store in a social media post with the hashtag #RSDMCCARTNEY. We don’t know how many of these have been pressed up, rumours are there are only 100 copies.
Instructions given to shop owners:
Paul has created a limited number of white label vinyl 12″ Sweet Thrash Mix and has instructed us to send them to stores across the country. He asks that on Record Store Day you quietly place it in the Paul McCartney bin before you open (please place it in the McCartney bin, not the RECORD STORE DAY RELEASES bin) and go about your day. When a customer brings it to the register to purchase, please tell them about the rarity of this release and take their picture. Then tag your store in a social media post with the hashtag #RSDMCCARTNEY
Please do not give this piece away. Please sell it for no more than $9.99. Please make sure to take the picture. Please make sure to do this on Record Store Day. Please remember the hashtag #RSDMCCARTNEY
Record Store Day will announce on social media that there are special white sleeve McCartney pieces out there, but you are asked to stay quiet about them until someone finds them in your store.
