leaked demos from the previous albums
« on: February 19, 2017, 10:34:28 PM »
ok so after finding the ST 87 demo today i have to ask. what else is out there? here is what i have...

the pre-Boy demo tapes
Two Hearts Beat As One demo tape <13 instrumental/acapella demos of the 1 song>
TUF outtakes <13 songs>
ST demo
R&H outtakes <some of these are just rips of the versions you hear in the movie, the rest MAY be from the R&H outtakes or something..>
Salome <3 cd, i'm sure everyone has this>
The First Time demo
Goldeneye <with Bono on vocals>
the Hong Kong Pop demo
the NLOTH beach clip

and the stuff released on MR&R. but in terms of bootlegs, how many of you had these on silver-cd bootlegs? outside of Salome i didn't know any of them existed till a few years ago. is there anything i DONT have that you've heard?

discuss!

Aside from various beach clips and random soundchecks... I think that about covers it, unless you can count songs like North Star (which I'm sure you have anyway).

What about the Achtung Baby outleaks? According to some sources the tapes were trashed, and found by someone. The outleaks are reproduced on vinyl with 2(or 3) to 5 LP's. It contains a lot of stuf that can be found (or not) on Achtung Baby or the B-sides. U2 was furious when they leaked out and promised that nothing on it would be on the new album.

It's called something like 'The New U2 Rehearsels and full versions'. I've tried to buy one of 5 vinyl some day. Had to pay €70,-, but it was too expensive for me. Looking at the site discogs I should have buyed it, haha

5 LP - at this moment €164,40:

I remember buying Salome bootleg in Barcelona way back in 1995. I loved hearing the early versions/alternate songs. But I must admit I was quite amazed at the number of different versions of the song Salome itself!  I can't imagine how many other songs over the years were reworked up to their released version. (Eg. Wake Up Dead Man).

yea the infinite amounts of demos for Salome was seriously annoying. i haven't listened to that bootleg outside of like 3 of the songs in prob 10 years or longer

People keep talking about the Salomé bootlegs as a 3-disc version, but I have a 7-disc version. In FLAC as well.

If you're referring to me, it's stored on a DVD-R. I downloaded it a long time ago during the NLOTH era. I'll see what I can do.

no i just meant to screen shot the files on your computer if you can.

3 discs is WAY more than enough. I listened to them as a curiosity, not in place of listening to the album itself or anything. It's not like there was a "Wave Of Sorrow" etc buried in those demos. Just snippets and run throughs of songs. More of a "fly on the wall" kinda experience to listening to it.
