Another DVD covering the classic album series telling the story of U2s 2nd greatest album ( after Achtung baby). First 3 tracks One of the great starts to a classic album. Footage in the studio withe Daniel Lanious & Brian ENO and mainly Bono & Edge. Historic document of one of of the great albums but not U2s greatest. Well worth a purchase at a great price

If your looking for video footage of songs from the album this is not for you. If you want inside information about mixing of the tracks and some of the inspiration behind the songs then it's quite a good buy for the price.

A Rockumentary about one the best albums of all time made by one of the best bands of all time, featuring input and comment by the band members and producers themselves cannot fail to be entertaining.

The Classic Album shows have one notable difference from the average programme of this genre. The Classic album series is not just a collection of cheap thrown away programmes dominated by cheesy commentary over a string of fuzzy repeated images with bad quality sound bites and quotes. The series has excellent production values featuring original footage, which centres around getting the old multi track tapes out, and separating out the parts (and in some cases playing along to them or performing the demo version) to demonstrate how the finished product was arrived at. It is this is invaluable part of the show, that demonstrates U2 and the producer's ability for building performances in the studio, and also how the music being made reflected U2's musical direction at the time, and the American literature they were influenced by.

My appreciation of The Joshua tree has grown since watching this DVD. Other reviewers have complained it is not a Concert video which is bizarre as the title clearly states it is from the `Classic Album' series. This DVD is a reflection by those involved in the creation of the album, is a fascinating insight into the making and production of the end product, and contains valuable interviews with Bono, the Edge and the producers Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno. We learn that the Album opener which the show refers to using its working title `Streets' took up almost half of the total time spent making the album on it's own, and the version we have today was almost erased for good by Brian Eno who had been driven mad by the process, and we also hear the 4 track cassette demo of the song recorded by Edge on his own. We also hear Bono describe performing in front of Larry Mullen Jnr on stage is like `getting a good kick in the head', and see Edge demonstrate how the Solo guitar part that is played on the end of `With or without you' is so simple, yet fits in perfectly after the crescendo in the song. We also hear the studio demo of running to stand still with Bono improvising the lyrics and filling in with la la la's, yet manages to come up with almost complete verses at the first take.

There are many more revelatory moments in the show which a true fan is guaranteed to enjoy. I am, I did and so will you.
