* ''Bernstein Plays Brubeck Plays Bernstein'' was a Distinct Single Album on LP. Side I was dedicated to Howard Brubeck's ''Dialogues for Jazz Combo and Orchestra'' performed mainly by the New York Philharmonic conducted by Music/LeonardBernstein, with the Dave Brubeck Quartet contributing improvisations. Side II had the Dave Brubeck Quartet by itself covering showtunes from Bernstein's ''Theatre/WestSideStory'' and ''Theatre/WonderfulTown''.

* The soundtrack for ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'' was released in two volumes. Volume 1, released alongside the game, [[ChristmasRushed had to be prepared prior to the game being finalized]], and thus contains music that is similar to what appeared in game, but with different arrangements. It also includes some [[FilkSong Halo-themed]] contributions from some outside music artists, such as Music/BreakingBenjamin and Music/{{Incubus}}. Volume 2 was released later, and contains the music as it appeared in the final game.

* Rush did the Distinct Single Album variant three times, in each case with one album side devoted to a RockOpera and the other side devoted to unrelated songs. ''Music/CaressOfSteel'', ''[[Music/TwentyOneTwelve 2112]]'', and ''Music/{{Hemispheres}}'' are the band's three examples. In the final case, the rock opera was so long that it actually extended back to the final song of the band's previous album, ''Music/AFarewellToKings''.

** Some of Dylan's live concerts also end up as examples of Distinct Double Albums. ''The Bootleg Series Vol. 4: Live 1966, The "Royal Albert Hall" Concert'' consists of a solo acoustic disc and an electric disc recorded with Music/TheBand, for example. The first set was warmly received while, infamously, the second set was widely heckled (one fan shouted out "Judas", to which Dylan responded, "I don't believe you; you're a liar. Play [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] loud!"). Interestingly, the reputation of the sets in posterity has now reversed; the electric set is now [[VindicatedByHistory regarded as one of Dylan's finest performances]], while the acoustic set is regarded as somewhat inferior.

This may actually have been partially due to an inferior sound system; according to people who were actually at the show, including [[http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/features/bob-dylan-how-i-found-the-man-who-shouted-judas-314340.html one who claims to have been the "Judas" heckler himself]], the concert recording of the live set sounds much better than the set itself did live (which has been described as sounding like "a wall of mush").

* Music/RufusWainwright's ''Want One'' and ''Want Two'': similarly to several other examples on this page, the songs were recorded together, but it was released separately as two different albums. The first album has a more personal focus, while the second album is darker and, according to Wainwright himself, is focussed on "the world we live in". They were later repackaged together as ''Want''.

A similar approach can be taken for a double-disk GreatestHitsAlbum: Most likely, the first contains the greatest hits, while the second contains all- or mostly-new material.

The vinyl era had a variant on this trope with the Distinct Single Album, on which each LP side would have its own theme (an acoustic side and an electric side was popular, for example). This tendency disappeared as vinyl became less prominent, but with the resurgence of vinyl as a popular media format, it is possible that it will make a resurgence.

** This was a similar idea to his original plan for ''Listen Without Prejudice'' to be a DistinctDoubleAlbum, with Volume 1 being pop and ballad based and Volume 2 being dance-based. In the end, only Volume 1 was released, but a few Volume 2 tracks were released via a charity album and single BSides.
