You get to see Adam playing a fair bit in this clip:



This is sick:

Was fortunate to see Wire twice on this tour (my first 2 U2 shows), it was a highlight of the shows, was stunned when they didn't bring it back on the JT tour, and its a sin they haven't ever brought it back.

And that's my favorite version of Yahweh. I think the acoustic guitar suits it well and makes it more memorable than all the chime-y-ness of the album version. One of the reasons I also kind of prefer the Unreleased&Rare version of Yahweh - it's not acoustic, but it kind of has more of a texture to it than the album version.
Don't get me wrong, I still think OOTS sounded good, and in some ways, yes it's an improvement on the arrangement/production mess from the album. But my god that live version from Amsterdam is out of this word.

And Yahweh is the most maligned track on The Bomb I think, but it always reminded me of the JT sound, specifically One Tree Hill, so I love the guitar work on it, brings back that "celestial" feeling. The "take this heart/and make it break" ending is one of the weakest in their catalog, though, and makes me wish Mercy had closed the whole thing out.

I can't decide if this is a cool idea or not.

Nothing wrong with wanting to celebrate the 40th anniversary of a first single.

Plenty of folks who don't have one from '79 who will buy this I'm sure.

definitely way better than them slapping 3 or 4 random live songs onto a record. i don't even own a record player and i might try to get this.

It'll certainly be cheaper than the thousands of dollars it would take to get an original pressing of it.

Weren't those three tunes already remastered as bonus tracks on the Boy reissue?

Yes. So it's not that these songs are now available for the first time in 40 years. Still, I guess it is a cool release for some, though personally I'm not interested.

I mean... they're doing a limited re-release of their original EP on vinyl for the first time in 40 years for an event specifically designed around the release of rare vinyl records to help promote local mom and pop record stores.

I'm not sure what there is to complain about

Ooh, it’s alive.

I think that RSD release is going to be an expensive one.

What is expensive? I'd expect it to be around the $20. Which is a whole lot cheaper than an original one.
