5.0 out of 5 stars Essential, 27 Jun. 2008

This review is from: October (Audio CD)
A must have for any self-respecting U2 fan, these deluxe editions follow in the footsteps of last year's Joshua Tree anniversary release.

Overseen by The Edge himself, the original albums have been fully remastered, but its the 2nd disc that will most appeal - containing B-sides, rarities and live versions that would take a small fortune to track down on the original singles. Notable on October Deluxe, is the great lost U2 single, 'A Celebration', which was released between October and War in 1982, but then fell out of favour with the band. (Although it's B-side '...Party Girl', also included, has become a live favourite to this day). Extensive liner notes, lyrics and unseen photographs are included in each version.

The first three albums represent the band's early punk influences (Boy) religious leanings (October) and the first steps toward stadium rock (War) and the fact that U2 still play songs from this period in their live set today is testament to the quality of the albums.
