Butter 08 - Butter 08 [Card Sleeve]  (CD, US)  - Cover
VIEW:
NOTES:
CD in card album-style gatefold sleeve with white paper inner-sleeve.

There is an official video for this Butter of 69 directed by Evan Bernard which can be seen on youtube.com.

This album is frequently referred to as being Butter 08 by Butter 08, untitled and eponoymous but the promo CD of this album and Butter of 69 promo both refer to this album as Butter which is actually the one and only word on the cover (even imprinted on a block of butter).

Many places list the catalogue number for this item as ‘GR029CD’ but the vinyl and CD issue appear to have the exact same catalogue no. of ‘GR029’ with the only identifiable difference being an additional ‘- A’ and ‘- B’ added to the end of the no. on the run-out on the vinyl and an ‘adv’ on the underside of the CD.

The catalogue numbers are probably ‘GR 029 1’ (vinyl) and ‘GR 029 2’ (CD) as these are the standard codes used in barcodes.

Grand Royal also issued a one track promo CD of Butter of 69 and promo album both with band photos not on the commercial release. The album was available on CD (w/card or plastic sleeve), vinyl and on CD in Japan with bonus tracks.
