What's the deal...?!? @ 08:26 pm

virginblue:
Was U2's 1980-90 Best of originally released with a 2nd disc featuring 15 more tracks like Sweetest Thing, Love Comes Tumbling, Everlasting Love, Unchained Melody, Walk To The Water, Hallelujah Here She Comes, Silver And Gold...???

If so...can you still get it?

i think there was a limited edition pressing that had a second disc of b-sides. i'm not sure if it was a limited edition... but i think it was.

therefore, i'm not sure if you still can get it.

man, this comment is completely unhelpful.

Twas released in two formats: one with just the one disc which you were obviously aware of previously, and another, limited edition (although quite a large number of limited editions), with the second disc, which contains the b-sides from that period of time. AFAIK, here in Australia, you're unable to buy the limited edition one anymore, new, in your regular cd shops. However, I have seen copies on Ebay, and in 2nd hand music shops. (when it went onsale in 1998, the "limited editon" was still available til at least March the 1999, at least here in Newcastle....)

Yep. The 2CD Best Of was the first thing I bought when I became a U2 fan in the summer of '99, and there were still *tons* of them in HMV etc for months after that. It does seem to be harder to find in shops now though, so I guess the limited edition thing is true.

Looks like Amazon.com has the limited addition. But...hmmm...don't have a credit card. I shall add it to my WhisList. :-P (dreamin')

Anyways...I'll be sure to get any potential limited additions of the next best of...if it get's released.

Yes, the bonus CD is awesome and was released as a limited edition. That being said, even the other day at Best Buy, I found one tucked away in their CD rows. There are a few still out there to be had & I am sure you might someone wanting to sell their CD set on something like half.com or other places.
