No one but the hardcore fan base and music fans with a post-punk fetish will give a toss about Boy, October, and War remaster releases

u2place.com reports there are also rumours of a new remaster, Under a blood red sky. This new edition is scheduled for September 2008, two formats, normal and deluxe. The latter may contain a DVD of Red Rocks concert.

Isn't this what atu2.com said too ? Under a blood red sky remaster this year ?

I believe atu2.com said May though.

Since we hadn't heard anything about any releases though, I was starting to get skeptical that any of that was true. Nice to see that just maybe, it might be happening. Boy is dying for a remaster and there are so many unreleased songs from that era.
Exactly.

It wasn't so long ago there were very skeptical threads about a rumoured JT remaster... and now we all own it.



cannot wait.

WOW, 2008 is going to be a GREAT year in music! I'm surprised they release all three albums in May, but I'll be more than happy to have these in a remastered quality. Plus possible BONUS MATERIAL! I hope there will be a release of UABRS as well, audio and video, that would be so great.

Maybe they are going to release all three albums in one (affordable) box set?!



Good stuff for the fans, but also a clever move to make a new generation familiar with the band's early work.

I should add one more: there might be an early An Cat Dubh in U2's vault. I believe an Into The Heart-less early version existed as far back as 1978 and was entirely in Gaelic. I think it was played at the now famous Harp Lager Talent Contest. So that takes us up to a possible count of 35! And that's not moving on past Boy through the October era up to War. That has:

Some early vinyl pressings of Boy: brief Fire riff as a hidden track
Gloria single: J. Swallow
Non-album single: A Celebration, Party Girl
New Year's Day single: Treasure
SBS/THBAO single: Endless Deep

Boy Tour unreleased songs: Father Is An Elephant, Carry Me Home, When I Fall Down (early I Fall Down with no keyboard)

My favourite unreleased song that Bono once mentioned in an interview from late 1980: Assaulted By Underpants!

War demos: Like A Song, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Surrender, and shitloads of versions of Two Hearts Beat As One

And surely more stuff hiding in the vaults ...

there is that "be there" song from an undetermined early period

Could be mix up due to all the rumours.

I'm guessing they will stick to the "two releases a year" policy with the remasters ? Dec 2007 for JT, May 2008 for first three albums, Fall of 2008 for UABRS etc

McGuiness said they'd get back into the whole catalogue, and there were reports of Steve Averill being excited about working on all the remasters' artwork before JT got released.

I knew I'd forgotten something! Especially as I subscribe to the theory that Be There is from 1982, not later in the eighties.
