THE JOSHUA TREE COLLECTION
Fan-Made Album made by gonzalo76 (aka stones4ever)
The release of The Joshua Tree saw the band on the cover of Time Magazine billed as 'Rock's Hottest Ticket.' In Sweden, copies of The Joshua Tree were pressed in yellow, pink and red vinyl with sleeves similar to the UK. In Mexico, a limited edition CD was released as part of the Serie Millennium re-issues with a different picture sleeve. In 1999, The Joshua Tree CD was re-issued with the clear band photo that appeared on the original vinyl LP rather than the blurred picture on the initial CD release.
The Joshua Tree entered the US album charts at No.7 and reached No. 1 three weeks later. It was U2's first album to reach No.1 in the United States. In 1999, The Joshua Tree was awarded the RIAA's highest certification, Diamond, with 10 million units sold. The album also peaked at No.1 on the UK, Canadian, West German, Dutch and Australian charts. In Switzerland, the album reached No.1 on the charts and stayed there for a total of 33 weeks. The album and sleeve cover also placed No. 1 in Rolling Stone magazine's annual Music Awards chosen by readers. Critics at Rolling Stone made it No. 2 album of the year. U2 also won Best Rock Performance By A Group Or Duo at the Grammy Awards for The Joshua Tree.

I made this compilation after reading the "Restore The Joshua Tree [album]!" article.
Author: Bill Tiede
Albums used to make this compilation:
1. The Joshua Tree 2007 Remastered Edition (Complete tracklist)
2. The Best of 1980-1990 B-Sides (Silver And Gold, Spanish Eyes, Luminous Times, Walk To The Water, Sweetest Thing)
3. Where The Streets Have No Name CD-Single (Race Against Time)
4. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For CD-Single (Deep In The Heart)
Race Against Time and Deep In The Heart were normalized with SoundForge just to match the volume of the remastered versions.
New artwork included.
Notes by Bill Tiede:
In 1987, U2 released an album that changed their history. I mean by this that until this point, they were considered the biggest underground band of unknowns in the world. They had released albums like Boy and War which were considered classic modern rock, and other less understood works like The Unforgettable Fire, but had not broken through until March of 1987 when the stores opened and sold "The Joshua Tree" .
Now most bands write a lot of songs for an album, but hopefully among them are 10 good enough songs to release as an album. The other tracks are forgettable, throwaway or left for another time which almost never comes. However, as the "weeding" process started to take place during the Joshua Tree sessions, they came down to almost 20 tracks considered good enough to be placed on the album.
The following excerpt is from from Hot Press, December, 1987, from an article by Bill Graham with an interview with Edge and Bono:
[Edge:] "... For instance, we disagreed vehemently about what songs should go on the album. If Bono had his way, 'The Joshua Tree' would have been more American and bluesy, and I was trying to pull it back."
That compromise led to the later flood of new B-side tracks. Bono will argue that "the album is almost incomplete. 'With or Without You' doesn't really make sense without 'Walk to the Water' or 'Luminous Times'. And 'Trip Through Your Wires' doesn't make that much sense without 'Sweetest Thing.'
[end of excerpt]
Another interview was on Radio One in Dublin, with Dave Fanning, where Bono talks about how they originally thought of releasing a double album, but there were so few good double-album releases (he mentions Bob Dylan's "Blonde on Blonde" as being a good one). He also felt that their pared down version of "The Joshua Tree" was almost "too much" for one listen as it was released.
Ultimately, with these interviews and others as evidence, there was plans at one point to release The Joshua Tree as a double-album with up to 18 songs. As we all know, this was not to be, but U2 did not leave its fans without options. In most of U2's history, b-sides were either old reworked demos that had been sitting around for years, or live tracks to attempt to capture the concert energy of U2. In the case of the Joshua Tree, however, 7 of the songs left off the album were released as via b-sides of the first three singles. Island Records even marketed three-packs of these singles in many parts of the world as "The Missing Tracks"
Having laid out the facts of the story, let me now get into my opinions on the subject. While I like The Joshua Tree the way it is (and many have emailed me not to argue with success), I tried to piece from interviews and articles what the track listing MIGHT HAVE BEEN if all 18 tracks were issued together. Back in October of 1993, I first posted this story and my suggested restored track listing for other U2 fans on Usenet and the U2 mailing list now known as Wire and sparked controversy on the subject. Overwhelmingly, though, I have received mail from other fans about how they could hear the music in a new way and get something from it they had not previously.
To make your own "restored" Joshua Tree, you will need your Joshua Tree album, plus the first three singles (or at least the 2 CD version of the Greatest Hits). These singles were released on CD and were available here in the US in the import section of your favorite local music store. In order of release, these singles are: With Or Without You, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, and Where The Streets Have No Name.
Once I began to listen to The Joshua Tree with my "restored" track listing, I find that I cannot listen to it any other way. As fans of the band, a concerted effort by us could generate a response and possibly a restored release. Maybe someday, the band will release the full version (At least they corrected on the Gold release that annoying track index problem that was on most releases with Exit and One Tree Hill)
