Girls Aloud - What Will the Neighbours Say? + Album Re-issues

Amazing! Just got my copy... here's the blurb:

Sound Of The Underground 20th Anniversary Limited Edition 7” vinyl

To celebrate it’s 20th anniversary, ‘Sound Of The Underground’ is being issued for the very first time as a collectible 7” vinyl. Backed with a never-before-released alternative vocal version of the song from the archives, this limited edition vinyl also comes with a sheet of “Buy Girls, Bye Boys” stickers.

After beating their Popstars: The Rivals competitors to the Christmas Number 1 in December 2002, Sound Of The Underground went on to spend four weeks at the top of the chart, and heralded in a run of 22 magnificent chart smashes that defined a decade in pop.

Strictly limited to 5000 copies.

Girls Aloud and their record company Polydor will be donating 100% of the profits received from the sale of the 7” record ‘Sound Of The Underground’ (meaning income received less actual costs) to The Sarah Harding Breast Cancer Appeal which is part of The Christie Charitable Fund, subject to a minimum payment of £5 for each 7” record sold in the UK

This sounds cool.
 
Surely now they'll follow it up with the albums?
As much as I love this and the girls, I have the 12" and not sure I can justify the spend at the moment for a 7".
 
I feel like them having their own store set up is a hopeful step for the albums coming on vinyl.

Maybe the 7" is to test demand/pressing numbers for the albums, but also a way that they can donate all the proceeds of a vinyl to charity first, as cynically I can't imagine Universal would agree to donating their proceeds from all 5 album reissues, even if the girls would.
