    U2's 'Joshua Tree' Blooms Again

    U2

    October 16, 2007, 10:30 AM ET

    Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.
    Billboard

    To celebrate the 20th birthday of its landmark album "The Joshua Tree," U2 is reissuing the set in four different incarnations on Nov. 20 via UMe. The album will be available as a remastered single CD, a 2-CD set, a 2-CD/1-DVD collectible box and a double-vinyl package.

    The single-disc will be housed in a jewel case, but the 2-CD set comes in a hard back case. The 2-CD/1-DVD version has a base and lid to accommodate the discs as well as five portfolio prints. Band members have contributed new liner notes for the package.

    Of most interest to fans is the inclusion of rare material on the expanded editions. Although details have yet to be announced, "Joshua Tree" demos, alternate versions and B-sides from the period are expected to appear.

    The DVD is understood to comprise a July 4, 1987, show at the Paris Hippodrome, as well as the documentary "Outside It's America."

    Produced by Brian Eno, "The Joshua Tree" shot U2's commercial fortunes into the stratosphere. The album's first three tracks were huge singles, with both "With or Without You" and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" hitting No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

    The band also received Grammy Awards for Album of The Year and Best Rock Performance By A Duo or Group With Vocal for 'The Joshua Tree'.

    Thanks for sharing this!

    The Joshua Tree is one of my very favorite cds and was an incredible tour. It was first time I have seen them live and have been hooked ever since.

    I feel old now.
    One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching.

      The Joshua Tree is probably U2's best album, but honestly it's not my favorite of theirs.

            I actually need to get this album on CD as my only copy is my original cassette from 1987. I may have to go fro broke and get the CD/DVD combo thingy.

            That reminds me.... I have "Rattle and Hum" on my DVR. I need to watch that!

              When I first heard this album in 1987 at the rip-age of 12, I didn't care for it. I was 12, and didn't really know alot of what they were talking about.

              But as the years went on, and I became more mature I grew to love it.

              Not my personal favorite U2 album, but it definately has it's place in history.

                  You were 12??? Good grief I had already been married 10 years and had a 6 year old... now I'm the one feeling old!

                  I remember the album mostly because U2 did some photos here where I live (being next to Joshua Tree National Park), and one of the pictures they took was under the sign for the Harmony Hotel in 29 Palms. Never did see them but I bought the... tape... just because of that. It was after I actually listened to it that I became a fan and have bought much of their other stuff.

                      Okay penguinsoda - to make you feel not sooo alone and not that it will help much...I was getting out of highschool so I was 18. Man clinks - 12? Just a young pup. I think Josuha Tree was their last best album. I lost interest in them after that. A friend burned the Beatiful Day CD for me...I would not have bought it otherwise, but that one is good and got back to who they were. The Josuha Tree album has a lot of good and bittersweet memories for me. I have it burned so I will not repurchase since they do not hold that much interest for me anymore.

                        I was 13 when the album came out. I remember just flipping out the first time I heard "Where the Streets Have No Name". To this day it's still one of my all-time favorite U2 songs.

                            SCUBAbe, have you heard Pet Shop Boys cover of it. They mix it with the chorus from "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You". It's amazing how well they make those 2 songs flow together! I remember completely losing my s*** when they performed it when I saw them last year.
