I'm guessing that they are releasing some sort of package deal. Three albums for a low price.

This was discussed before on another thread. They are Japanese imports (hence the high prices at Best Buy). No information yet on whether they will be remastered or not.

Aaah, three of U2's best albums...!

Underrated or (in October's case) unfairly ignored for no good reason.

I wish they would remaster and rerelease these album with either B-Sides or demos. U2 is marvellously famous for not repackaging the same ol' stuff, however I wouldn't mind this.

I hope they then do it the Elvis Costello way: releasing the original album on one CD and have a separate CD with B-sides, outtakes, live stuff, demos etc. Add some revealing liner notes and lyrics to all the songs and you've got a superb package. I think that would be good enough for me to buy everything again.

C ya!
