it was actually a a concert review of u2 [in New York Rocker mag} during the ??Battle of Britain Tour in mid-something 1980 that drew my atention...to U2.

"....ambitionious band, connects with audience, anthemic songs.." THEN I heard IWF/OOC, and I was reallly impressed !!

THEN an interview with them in the same mag done the next day {after that concert} but not printed up till May 81, that they further expanded on their performance & song/music philosphies/ themes as a band etc really, REALLY impressed me!!!

I kept following/buying the records [yeah, original vinyl] and hearing & seeing ever increasinng good/great stuff. Certainly JT was their full 'breakout' record {but thinking back...WAR also come close}.

So I've been there most of the time in these past 24 1/2 years{a live glimpse of them in soundcheck/rehearsal in '83, then seeing their full shows from '84 onward}

OK this was a long answer....- but my introduction to them was 'complex' with 'layers' of info adding into their attraction as a recording/performing band for me!

I'd already been a serious-super fan of serveral other bands previous to U2 that become as Super famous as U2 would eventually...so u2 had the "tough competition" of my previous R&R recorded and Live! experiences to measure up to.

In 1989 when I was around 12 years old my aunt left her Rattle and Hum cassette at our house and the version of Pride off that album got me into U2. Though I did kind of forget about the band until The Fly premiered on MTV one night in the fall of 1991. I remember seeing the premiere and saying to myself "oh, wow, it's that band!"

Me, too! Although, to be fair, I had heard a few of the staple U2 songs on the radio beforehand. It's just that Discotheque forced me to investigate.

More or less all of Rattle and Hum; my dad loves the live version of ISHFWILF and had the cassette (early 1990s) on heavy rotation in the car, needless to say I became addicted

acctually, that all started for me all because my boyfriend's father, who was great U2 fan, and first album I heard was POP (and especially Discoteque ), but video on 'elevation' made me down for the count...
