Comments:
This is a great collection of early studio recordings. Some of these
recordings are from the actual studio source tapes for their early
releases, in particular Tracks 1 and 2 are from the "11 O'Clock Tick
Tock" single, Tracks 5-7 are from the "U2-3" EP, Tracks 3 and 10 are
from the "Another Day" single. The 'War' demos are not radically
different from their final versions, but the sound quality is excellent
(I've been looking for these on CD for ages - this is the only pressing
of them I've ever found.). Track 18 is live, not a demo.
This is the original pressing on this label.
