U2 downloads clean up on iTunes

hotpress.com reveals the tracklisting of the complete U2 digital download which, since going on sale last week, has been exceeding predicted sales figures

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 24 Nov 2004



The Complete U2 digital download has gone on sale through iTunes and, according to a well-placed source, is "performing even better than the band and Apple were hoping."

As previously revealed on hotpress.com, the 446-song package gathers together all of their albums, singles and B-sides, three live shows, a generous smattering of remixes and the 21-track Rare And Unreleased, which includes outtakes from All That You Can't Leave Behind and How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb.

The treasure trove includes:

'Levitate' (ATYCLB sessions)

'Love You Like Mad' (ATYCLB sessions)

'Smile' (HTDAAB sessions)

'Flower Child' (ATYCLB sessions)

'Jesus Christ' (Joshua Tree sessions)

'Xanax And Wine' (HTDAAB sessions)

'All Because Of You' (alternate version)

'Native Song'

'Yahweh' (alternate version)

'Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own' (alternate version)

'Numb' (radio edit)

'Bass Trap' (extended)

'Night And Day' (twilight remix)

'Numb' (remix)

'Salome' (Zooromancer remix)

'Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)'

'Stateless' (soundtrack version)

'Street Missions' (original demo)

'Shadows And Tall Trees' (original demo)

'The Fool' (original demo)

Frustratingly, The Complete U2 is still unavailable in Ireland because Irish collection agencies and Apple have failed to reach an acceptable agreement.

Meanwhile, the word from the UK is that U2 are almost guaranteed to wrestle the album top spot off Eminem this weekend. How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb is selling almost three times as many copies as Encore – a similar figure to the stats here.
