ATYCLB Skips The Queue, To Get 20th Anniversary Release
« on: July 30, 2020, 11:49:35 AM »
There are rumors that ATYCLB will get a 20th anniversary release this October. It virtually jumps ahead of the hoped-for 30th of R&H or the 20th of POP.

So much for the 30th Anniversary release of Rattle And Hum.  U2 actually celebrated it by playing either Desire or Angel Of Harlem during the 2019 Joshua Tree Tour.

U2 never did that POP 20th anniversary boxed in 2017. Maybe a 25th anniversary in 2022?  They can possible do it and finally "finish" the album.

After the POP debacle, U2 needed to win back their fans.  They started erasing Pop by reminding fans of the 80's with the Best Of 1980-1990 and The Sweetest Thing.

Then finally, redemption and restoration of the faith of fans was completed with ATYCLB.  Since that album was released, U2 have played Beautiful Day and Elevation virtually every show of every tour that followed.

Anyone else excited for that 20th anniversary release - if the rumors (on u2songs.com) prove to be true?  For sure I am, and I will buy the one with the highest price point.

Cheers,

J

If this is true, i'm not surprised.  The band has seemingly ignored R&H and Pop.

Here’s the story:

We are happy to share that we have been told that All That You Can’t Leave Behind is getting a special reissue, likely this October. The release will be a box set including rare tracks, live material, and the album. As this has not yet been announced by U2 or their label, it should be considered a rumour at this time until it is officially announced, but this has reached us via previously reliable sources.

It has been 20 years since U2 reapplied for the job of being, in Bono’s words, the “best band in the world”. Twenty years since we first heard “Beautiful Day” chime over the airwaves. Twenty years since All That You Can’t Leave Behind was released on October 30, 2000, hitting #1 in 32 different countries around the world, and winning the Grammy Award for Best Rock Album.

We are told that the band is returning to the All That You Can’t Leave Behind album this fall for a special box set collection. Our sources say that the project is being put together by the same team who worked on the 30th anniversary edition of The Joshua Tree, which was put together under Executive Producer Gavin Friday. We are told that this new box will be similar in size and scope to that 2017 project.

Initial plans suggest a vinyl box, a CD box, as well as a smaller multi-disc CD set, and individual releases of the album on deluxe CD and vinyl are being planned. The audio will likely be from the remaster of the album done by The Edge in 2017, which has been used for both an iTunes release and for a vinyl pressing of the album. The 2018 release on black vinyl did use this new master. (For those who are wondering, that release also dropped the dedication to Aung San Suu Kyi which had been present in earlier editions.) Also expected to be included in the box set will be a show from the 2001 Elevation tour, and several discs of rarities and demos from this era, some which haven’t been released before. The 2017 release of The Joshua Tree included the album, a previously unreleased Joshua Tree tour concert, and B-Sides, outtakes and remixes.

A number of studio B-Sides were used to fill out singles when the original album was produced, and more songs from this era appeared in 2004 with the release of The Complete U2 and the earlier release of The Million Dollar Hotel Soundtrack, these include:

“Always”
“Summer Rain”
“Big Girls Are Best”
“Don’t Take Your Guns to Town”
“Levitate”
“Love You Like Mad”
“Flower Child”
“The Ground Beneath Her Feet”
“Stateless”
During the production of the album, Eno kept a production notebook that listed many other song titles which have never appeared, so there may be a wealth of demo material to work with for additional content in the box set. One song, “Novelty Act” was even announced as a B-side for a single in this era, before being replaced by “Big Girls Are Best.” Other titles mentioned in the production notes include “Higher than Love,” “Big Jesus About Town,” “Last Week of My Life,” and “Frontier of the Skin.” Hopefully we get a look into some of those previously unheard tracks with this release. A look at all of the demo titles we know of can be found here.

During the promotion of the album, a number of remixes and alternate edits appeared on singles as well:

“Beautiful Day” (Quincey and Sonance Remix)
“Beautiful Day” (The Perfecto Remix)
“Beautiful Day” (David Holmes Remix)
“Elevation” (Tomb Raider Mix)
“Elevation” (Escalation Mix)
“Elevation” (Influx Mix)
“Elevation” (Quincey and Sonance Mix)
“Elevation” (The Vandit Club Mix) (as well as other mixes by Paul van Dyk)
“Elevation” (The Biffco Mix)
“In A Little While” (N.O.W. Remix)
“Stuck in a Moment” (Acoustic Version)
“Stuck in a Moment” (Radio Edit)
“Walk On” (Edit)
“Walk On” (Hallelujah Mix)
“Walk On” (Video Version)
“Walk On” (Single Version)

If the 2017 release of The Joshua Tree is any indication, there may also be some new remixes included. That release in 2017 saw many of U2’s producers from throughout the years creating new remixes of songs, including Steve Lillywhite, Daniel Lanois, Brian Eno and Jacknife Lee. That release of The Joshua Tree was supported by a new single version of “Red Hill Mining Town,” remixed by Steve Lillywhite, released for Record Store Day and on streaming services ahead of the box set.

There were also a number of live tracks released as singles and stand alone tracks during the album promotion cycle, including three tracks recorded in Dublin on the “International Radio Sessions” promo, songs taken from the Elevation concerts in Boston, Toronto and at Slane Castle, songs taken from promotional shows at Irving Plaza in New York, the Manray Club in Paris, and from the Farmclub.Com appearance. Songs were also released from the PopMart Mexico show as part of the singles for All That You Can’t Leave Behind. And a live version of “Walk On” with “Peace on Earth” was also released for the America: A Tribute to Heroes album and video.

The box set and other formats of this release should be announced in late August / early September. We are told the expected release date for these releases is October 30, 2020, which is the 20th anniversary of the release of the original album. As this release has not yet been announced by Universal, changes to the date and content mentioned above may occur, and should be taken as rumour for now. Once confirmed, we will bring you additional information on this release.

First Chair. Last Call.

Since medium rare is basically the ATYCLB deluxe edition I doubt there will be much to this

I don't care for remixes and haven't bothered listening to one since 1996.  If the CD Deluxe edition matches the ones for TJT and TUF, i would purchase it.

U2 began ‘erasing’ POP by turning into the godawful pop/rock band they started becoming with ATYCLB.

Beautiful Day and Elevation are some of the worst songs in their repertoire. Shot yourself in the foot with that one, fella.

I wish I had enough time in the day to troll forums of bands I despise or haven't like in over 20 years. 

I would need each day to have about 100 hours though.  Maybe there is a planet out there with 100 hour days?  Can anyone help me?

Right. In that case you’re not a very efficient human being. I manage to entertain myself at the expense of U2 fans while simultaneously studying for a degree and working at the same time. What’s not to like!

We’ve already had a lot of extras from this album and a lot of very good soundboard bootlegs too. I doubt we’ll hear anything new.

That said, I’d be very happy if they could find an Elevation Tour show I don’t already have as it’s where U2 peaked, IMHO.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

I agree.

Although ATYCLB is a distinctly vanilla record, the elevation shows I saw were second only to the original Joshua Tree tour.

last night i dreamnt (or was it this morning, damned 100 hour days) i had discovered the keys to universe, it was all so very clear to me in my slumber

i wondered if, once awake, if i would remember all of those keys

truth is, i don't

in fact, i don't even know if it was the actual keys to the universe that i discovered, or if it was the key holes and i was the key master

either way, it was wild and exciting, and in one hand i had it all, in the other i knew i would soon lose it

But this thread, it has to be in the portal somewhere, somehow, some way

just magic in the wallpaper, magic in the underpants, magic in the spirit and the streets where spirits dance

i believe these rumors

don't know if i would buy this product, but hey, it's something new-ish from u2

can't resist this sort of thing, had that needle in my hand for a while now, just waiting to dip in the vein

i'm hopeless
beyond redemption

if there was a star named after me you wouldn't want to live there

and the place i live in, it's famed for chaos and mystery, like many i cannot seem to find my way outta here

take this post as a cautionary tale from the world beyond the world you know

you can't get there from here

buy you

can

try...



there are demons in the broad day light

There's no much extra material out there already from this period, I highly doubt there's anything (worth hearing) that's remained under lock and key. And if there is, I'll just wait until 10 minutes after this release and download it for free.
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.
