Yes, the Joshua Tree Gold Ultradisc is fetching a lot on Ebay right now. People are purchasing this CD with the "Buy it Now" option for $100 on the very day that the seller has listed the cd!

I purchased all three U2 Gold Ultradiscs (War,UF,JT) in sealed mint condition 5 years ago for $75. I felt a little ripped off at the time. I certainly don't feel that way anymore.

They sound incredible! The biggest noticable difference to the regular cd can be heard on the Joshua Tree's "Exit". The Gold disc version brings all the lows high and the highs higher! The way it should be heard. If you can purchase War and UF for under $30 each, don't hesitate. These are incredible remasters! It is very unlikely that you will find the Joshua Tree Gold Ultradisc for under $60 used.

They stopped making these cds long ago. The company went bankrupt. It was too expensive to make these cds. Soon they'll be harder to find.

Hey Mike...it was funny to find this post, because just a few days ago, I was at The Wherehouse buying a Ramones album, and the guy was checking for their albums in the used section when we found the War gold cd in the used section for 24.99. I figured if I'm going to pay that much, I might as well get it new.

I don't know what the hell that guy is thinking....

I put in a pre-order for JT, and amazon.com said that the average sale price was $26.00. $289? what the hell is this guy smoking?

It was in perfect condidtion, I might add. Good buy.

The Wherehouse by me has them too. I know I've seen WAR, not sure about the others. Will have to go back and search it out. I think it was like 24 or 29.99. That is expensive for used, but if it skips or has scratches, you can take it back.

Any of you GOLD disc owners have a CDR? If you copied to another CD, would the sound quality be the same as is with copying of other CDs?

Could be a mistake on the amazon site, I suppose...the other U2 golds are in the normal $26 range.
