Dumb question: Is everyone's JT CD like this?

Is the Exit track supposed to begin with the "Oh Great Ocean, Oh Great Sea..." coda from One Tree Hill? I mean, it's fine when listening to the album straight through, but kinda stinks when I want to put One Tree Hill in a separate playlist on my ipod.

Yeah, it's like that on everyone's, and it's been complained about before, but doesn't seem to matter to the cd manufacturer...

It's not like that on everyone's. I have the standard U.S. issue, and it is fine.

There was another thread somewhere that talked about this at great length, although I can't find it at the moment.

Reggie, do you mean 'fine' as in not like mine?

Anyway, i just took the tracks into sound edit and did a little cutting and pasting. JT was the first CD I ever bought, and I always wondered why it was like that.

I think the older pressings were screwed up. Mine is incorrect but my Gold cd is correct.

They don't make them anymore. Your best bet is eBay, but expect to pay at least $100 there.

My (old) European (German/Austrian) version is fine too, i.e. One Tree Hill ends with "Oh great ocean..." and Exit starts with, well... nothing.

my gold version is correct, also... as worn down as it is (thank you cd doctor )

but for some reason when i burned the cd to disc, it has the "oh great ocean..." track connected to exit.

i think the way CDs are made, the extra part was meant to be part of the lead-in from the previous track (the negative seconds before the next track), but for some reason when burned to mp3 it takes the negative seconds and puts it forward instead of backwards? i dunno it's the only thing that kinda made some sort of sense to me.

But OHHH U2s production was so fantastic before and this new album has such bad production.....As I said before there is flaws on every CD good to see people that are looking at the old material and finding some.

I find the new CD while not perfectly mastered definately one of U2s best mastered CD.

Funny thing is, I acctualyl like having that peice at the beginning of Exit more than at the end of OTH. Maybe it's just because i'm used to it being that way, but whenever I listen to Exit, I love having that beautiful vocal verse before Exit slowly builds up in the headphones. God damn, love it so much!

Me too. For the longest time, I thought that was actually supposed to be part of Exit.

I got my cop of Joshua Tree back in 1993 through some CD club so I have no idea when it was originally pressed and manufactured, but it's perfectly normal.

Cept for the fact that I have to turn it way up to listen to it at a decent sound level.

I think it sounds good as a lead-in to Exit, but my problem was having One Tree Hill on a separate playlist. It definitely needs that coda. Plus when they played it live, they did the coda whether or not Exit was the next song.
