U2 Prepping Joshua Tree 20th Anniversary Edition

U2 Joshua Tree

Only 20 years young, U2 are re-releasing The Joshua Tree to celebrate its birthday:

Though the always-exciting format details are still trickling in, we know this: new liner notes abound, and the CD/DVD combo contains five portfolio prints, whatever that might mean. The DVD supposedly sports both film from a July 1987 show at Paris’ Hippodrome and the documentary Outside It’s America, but, again, that’s tentative.

It’s set for release November 20th.

  3. We asked Anton about this too. He said he’s written some stuff about the shoot for the re-release. Just wanted to hear him say “Yoshua Tree”, really.

  5. While I continue read “U2 by U2” by jumping to various sections, one thing is constant: I love reading about how songs and albums came together. I was in a band in college and was fortunate enough to experience making an album in the studio. When I think back about those times, I remember vividly the creative process, the trial-and-error and the final production. I loved reading about similar steps by U2 (especially the recollections of how “U2 almost broke up when recording ‘Achtung Baby’ before the songs started coming together”) … and it would be great if there were some similar video in the “Joshua Tree” 20th Anniversary DVD/CD. I never saw the DVD that was released 10 or so years ago after “Pop” which featured U2’s memories of creating “Joshua Tree”. But in addition to a “looking back” chapter, I’d love to see video from the studio sessions (like they did for “Unforgettable Fire” oh so many years ago). Ditto for the year 2011 when it’s time for a 20th anniversary of “Achtung Baby.”

  7. Oh yeah … and a full video of the infamous “Womanfish” incident on Irish TV in the year or so leading up to the “Joshua Tree” sessions. And to find out why the video for “Red Hill Mining Town” was filmed but never released.

  9. A little disappointing to see some missing tracks from the DVD, C’mon Everybody and Stand by me. I guess the boys would have to pay royalties on these songs and they wouldn’t want that now would they (Larry)
