Happy Birthday Joshua Tree with that album I became U2 fan, back in mid 1987

Great memories, Joshua Tree was my first ever CD I bought, in 1990 ( at that time we still used cassettes in Chile )

FELIZ CUMPLEAÑOS JOSHUA TREE !!!!!

although i was a big U2 fan by this time back in march '87 i didn't realise that they release a new album until i heard WOWY on the radio. i even was not sure whether this new sound was U2. but it was and it was sooo good. sweet memories... and those were the days back then: no hype at all and far and wide no internet around. congrats to U2s 2nd best album - one of their three classics

The album that was meant to be for that time in my life. I remember the day I bought it. Fold-out gate cover...lyrics printed on the sleeve...Adam looking quite different..and the music living up to the hype. My favorite album of all time, on many levels.

Brilliant description, especially regarding One Tree Hill.

I queued until midnight to buy the album in '87, expecting to see (as I recall) Adam Clayton to turn up. My favourite album of all time.

Happy birthday JT.
