* 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 with somewhat different arrangement compared to that of the final game. 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.

** 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").

* The third and final tie-in LP for ''Series/NotTheNineOClockNews'' had sketches from the TV series on one disc, and a live recording of the cast's short-lived stage show (mostly new stuff that hadn't been on TV) on the second.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/GeorgeCarlin's Distinct Single Album from 1970, ''FM&AM''. The two sides of the same vinyl LP, labeled "FM" and "AM", made reference to the contemporary shift from the latter technology to the former, which Carlin reflected in his material. The "FM" side is recorded in stereo, and features the beginnings of his newer, more introspective comedy style, that he would refine further in ''Class Clown'' and ''Occupation: Foole''. The "AM" side is recorded in mono, and features the last vestiges of the TV-friendly act he was trying to leave behind, including new sketches featuring his Wonderful WINO disc jockey character and "Al Sleet, the hippy-dippy weatherman".

* Music/{{DieApokalyptischenReiter}} did this with their albums ''Tief''[[note]]Deep[[/note]] and ''Tiefer''[[note]]Deepter[[/note]]. The first was a Metal album, the second an acoustic album primarily containing acoustic versions of older songs. Both were released at the same time, also there was a bundle containing both and a small artbook.

* Music/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''.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/SixteenHorsepower's compilation ''Yours Truly''. The first disc is a standard GreatestHitsAlbum. The second is a collection of non-album singles and alternate versions of songs.


Added DiffLines:

* Music/MyBrightestDiamond's ''This Is My Hand'' does this over the length of a single album. The first side of the LP is the faster, more intense songs; the second side is the slower, ambient tracks.

* Music/PetShopBoys' 2003 GreatestHitsAlbum, ''[=PopArt=]'', had a "Pop" disc with their upbeat dance-pop numbers and an "Art" disc with their more introspective, artsy stuff. The limited edition came with a ''third'' disc, "Mix", which contained [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin remixes]].

** The 1993 album ''Very'' was briefly available as a special 2-disc edition, ''Very Relentless''. The first disc was the normal ''Very'' album, vocal synthpop tracks. The second disc, ''Relentless'', was six extended dance tunes, five of them with barely any singing or completely instrumental.


Added DiffLines:

* JoyElectric:
** For the compilation ''The Art and Craft of Popular Music'', Disc 1 has a bunch of rare (or previously unreleased) non-album tracks and remixes, while Disc 2 is a standard GreatestHitsAlbum.
** The album ''The Otherly Opus'' was a distinct double-EP: the first half of the album is JE's usual, impenetrably surreal lyrics, while the second half is a miniature ConceptAlbum about [[Literature/{{Genesis}} the period between the Fall of Man and Noah's flood]]. He almost titled the whole thing ''The Otherly Opus / The Memory of Alpha'' to reflect the bifurcation.
