Do You Think U2 Will Release Everything?

There is one question that's lingered in my mind for a while, will U2, at any point, release all they've ever recorded? If so I'd really love to hear it! I really wanted to see what your opinion(s) were on this. I think it might possibly happen but I can't be certain. My guess is if it were to happen it would happen when the band were "done" . Of course that's a day that I push far far away and out of sight and never want to see.

Soooooooo...I'm

I hope not. The world simply isn't ready for Start Your Cell Phones (I Want To Save Africa) and Peter Gabriel's African vocal mix of Holy Joe.

i think it's highly doubtful they'll release everything. i don't think any band ever has. even discounting all their demos and outtakes, any band that's ever released an all-encompassing box set always has some glaring omissions.

I await the day when Bono, Larry, and Adam will release a single made on top of a demo tape that Edge made of a solo song.

That being said, I'm sure they will release one of thos "all-encompassing" box sets about 5-10 years from now.

There's just no way to define "everything". Do we really want 20 versions of Lady with the Spinning Head? Do we really want the beginning instrumental of Mercy that Bono never laid a vocal on?

I'm pretty sure there are some real gems that we don't even know about, but I'm willing to bet that their vault isn't nearly as large as we think it is... I mean I'm sure there are a lot of sketches similar to the Salome bootlegs, but probably not nearly as many finished songs like those that appeared in the digital boxset that we would hope.

That being said, the two I'm really looking forward to are Wild Irish Rose and Wanderer with Bono vocal.

My point was to get you to define the finality of an "unreleased track".

Ok EVERY unreleased track is a bit out there but if U2 could release what they think might have had some potential or something interesting and different would possibly interest some people. I know not all. And they don't have to release the "269 mixes" of Hawkmoon 269 or release all the different versions of songs ever! I mean it would just be kind of interesting, ya know, to see what they've come up with that we've never heard. Might be worth the *insert amount here* you spend on it. Might not. All I'm saying is I think it might be cooler to hear a bunch of unreleased and interesting tracks than a bunch of remixes of their past decade.

Ooooooohhhh, you're good. Actually there was a super low quality version of them recording this in Sun Studios during the R&H days, from what I remember, not so good... But the quality was so bad I only gave it one listen so who knows

I have no doubt we'll get some kind of box set...

One disc(or whatever format) of remixes.

One of alternate versions.

One of stuff we've never heard.

etc...

i was thinking more along the lines of unreleased live songs/concerts. Like some of those 1998 pop shows where they really got going, or anything from the lovetown tour. The first msg show they ever did. The early zoo tv shows. The post 9/11 shows. The boy tour. Actuly, on the subject of the lovetown tour, i was reading about it in my live u2 documentry book. I always assoate the effects of the the berlin wall/new era in europe with the zoo tv. But its actuly during lovetown tour when the event actuly happened. The we goota go dream it up again show would be a good release.

Meh, in the day of the internet live albums are dead. Now a DVD of Lovetown would be nice, but the audio is pretty much out there, and honestly I wouldn't be interested personally.

They could just release it online. I mean even with rare studio stuff the internet has killed that to some degree. Perhaps they could rare bonus tracks/entire shows with the purchase of this or that album. But in theory we are supposed get all the albums remastered. So live stuff could fit into that. A lovetown dvd would be great.

Well, yes there is no such thing as "rare" anymore when it comes to music. But I think the point is the stuff that's never been released, in any format...
