Well, since the Best Of is about to be released I'm sure a Box Set isnt coming anytime in the near future. I think they'll write 2 or 3 more albums and then think about it. At that point, I would divide the set into 4 discs...
Disc 1 - Boy, October, War
Disc 2 - UFire, JT, R&H
Disc 3 - Achtung, Zooropa, Pop
Disc 4 - ATYCLB, album 11(HQ???). album 12 ( )

Of course there would be a mix of A sides and B sides with preference of course on the former.

So there!

I like your disc ideas, cept I think on disc 4 he should put stuff from Million Dollar Hotel, Ground Beneath Her Feet, ATYCLB, Hands That Built America, and Electrical Storm, Since he is planning this now right?

Oops, sorry. I thought you were asking opinions about what U2 would do.

I can give you my four-disc tracklisting, since I made one. These are chronological for the sake of a continuous listening experience. This is fairly close ot my original tracklisting, but the two most recent songs have been added, as well as the new mix of Gone in place of a live version. This is strictly based on MY preferences.

I suggest putting the Passengers tracks and "Night and Day" with the Achtung Baby and Zooropa material. Then move Pop with the Million Dollar Hotel and onward (if you're worried about coherency, use the new mixes, since they sit better with the MDH and ATYCLB songs).

Toss "Party Girl" on the first disc while you're at it.

I actually did this back in 1999 and was able to fit a lot of good songs onto 4 discs, with the last disc having B-Sides, and commercially released live tracks. With this live CD I was able to seamlessly fade tracks from 1982, with tracks from R&H DVD, PopMart Mexico city, and other faves.

The only problem is, if you are like me, you end up having to ax some songs that you really love just to make them fit onto a CD-R.

So, if I were you, make 5 discs instead of 4 so that you can have plenty to choose from. And trust me, when you really start to go through those albums and pick songs that you'd like to include, you won't have any trouble filling up 5 discs.

Hi RickFly. I've been working on the idea of how a possible box set release may look in the future too, and its still being worked on as i type, but i'll try real hard to get it posted here in the next few days. I knew it wouldn't be easy, but by Christ its a labour of love!! As a basis i have pretty much a similar format to those posts above, but of course a variation in track layout.

So it should be here soon, and hey if you wait a while longer you'll probably get three at once....!

U2 DOES HAVE A BOX SET OF SINGLES OUT!!!!!!!

I bought it in college and totally forgot about it, but then saw it on Ebay yesterday.

it is called U2 "The singles collection" I think it is from 1979-1989


It is all the singles they released up to that date.

It is a black box with gray "U2" letters on it...

Well thats it. In case u r wondering, certain tracks are in certain places because they improve the flow of how the disc would sound when listened to all the way through. Of course some tracks are just there cos they are MY preferences. I appreciate its probably not that easy to obtain all the above songs, but this is just my hope of what a U2 boxset might be like.


Bye for now.
