Billboard.com reports half of the 20,000 copies of Gang of Four’s Return the Gift contains a crisp $1 wrapped in the CD booklet and will not be visible from the case. But the copy of the album I bought today had the $1 wrapped around the booklet, and it was as clear as day.
Being the anal preservist I am, I did not put the dollar bill in my wallet upon opening the CD. In fact, I’m going to keep that dollar bill as part of the album art for as long as I can. Because that’s a really cool way to return a gift.
P.S. I’m going to the band’s show at Emo’s tomorrow!
