I know that I've already posted in threads similar to this one, so I won't bother qualifying my responses....I'll just say this:

"Vertigo"
"All Because Of You" (alternate version)
"Sometimes You Can't Make It..." (LP version)
"Yahweh" (toss-up, basically; I'll go with the LP version since it's on the album, already...may as well err on the side of caution)

No, none whatsoever--"LP" is just another term for album which stems from the days of vinyl. It stands for "Long-Play," just as "EP" stands for "Extended-Play." A bit anachronistic, perhaps, but still widely used.

i just LOVE the falsetto in the alternate version of ABOY. sometime i'll mix that part in to the end of the verses in the real ABOY track.

The alternate SYCMIOYO is simply appalling. Native Son and alternate ABOY are good, but they aren't nearly as good as what's on the album.

In the Liner notes for the complete u2 Edge writes:
"...We have also included some of the early incarnations of the material from HOW TO DISMANTLE AN ATOMIC BOMB. These Chris Thomas productions are the rough mixes that we made as we went along, and they reveal how close we got to a finished working with Chris. We include an alternate version of 'Yahweh' mixed by Nellee Hopper, and it was a close contest between this mix, and the one that made the album."

That being said
Vertigo way over Native Son
LP Version of ABOY - but I do enjoy the first part of the unreleased version
LP Version of SYCMOYO - hands down
Yahweh - either works for me
Fast Cars over Xanax and Wine

I think Xanax is betta than Fast Cars, it has that smooth/flowing feel to it while FC sounds forced and choopy

I like the album results of all songs better. I think they made the right choices.

All becuse of you was changed from a song that sounded like it was fresh and original too a song that sounds like its been done before. Should have kept the original version, not as commercially acceptable but a far more interesting track.

"rjh," why is it that you and I always seem to agree about everything, in here? While I think that we VERY rarely express ourselves in the same ways, haven't you noticed a very similar thread to our final conclusions? Just a thought--I just saw that you agreed with me concerning "Love And Peace..." in another thread about the album's best track.

That said, I will need to agree with what some others have said (I already posted my preferences for the tracks, but I forgot to mention this)--the alternate take of "Sometimes..." is fucking sinful, it's so bad. What a damned mess. I'll take the evocative, lush, bursting...and, yes, too syrupy...final version any day. It might sound too bombastic, production-wise, BUT I LOVE IT!!!

Have to agree with your summing up of the original of SYCMIOYO, the thing I hate most about that is the way Bono sings the listen to me now bit with a real low vocal, I cringe when he sings it. He got the vocal right in the final version at least.

Yes we seem to have similar views, but I definetly don't seem to be in the majority here when commenting on the new album that is for sure.

I'll be the only one but I do like the alternate take of SYCMIOYO. Now, I don't prefer it over the album version, but I do have it on my playlist. I like the heightened tension built by the augmented chords. Plus, Bono hits the siiiiing part differently.
