OTHER NOTES
The third compilation album of songs from U2's career follows in the footsteps of The Best of 1980 - 1990 and The Best of 1990 - 2000.  This time however, the compilation album focuses on U2's entire body of work from 1979 onwards.  It is released with two new tracks, The Saints are Coming, a song recorded with Green Day, and Window in the Skies. 

The album will be available in at least four formats that have been reported so far:

  • A 12" Vinyl recording of the album in the UK - it is expected to have two discs due to length restrictions on vinyl.
  • A regular 1 CD Version with the 18 tracks, and booklet and inserts
  • A deluxe version, containing the 1 CD version as well as a DVD with 10 songs live from the Vertigo concert in Milan from 2005.
  • A 'cheap version' in Poland and perhaps other countries which will consist of the CD, and no booklet, just a card insert with the cover on one side, and the tracklisting on the other.
As well a full DVD release will be done featuring the videos for all 18 tracks contained on the album.  In the USA the

Further Information:
The sticker on the Canadian release mistakenly listed "Plus Bonus Track / Plus Une Chanson en Prime" which is not the case, this release does not contain the bonus track, and Universal Canada published an apology note on their website stating that this is incorrect. The Canadian release also contained a two-sided page regarding purchasing U2 ringtones.

All of these pressings featured a slightly different booklet than those pressings with the I Will Follow track, instead of the artwork used there, this edition starts out with the information on Beautiful Day, and has an additional two page photo from the Rattle and Hum sessions in the center of the booklet.

Catalog Information:
UK, Island / Mercury, 0602517135499
Track Listing:
As listed above.  Contains "I Will Follow" as a bonus track as the first track on the disc.  Does not contain the Milan DVD.
Further Information:
The UK Edition of the CD was released in a super jewel case, which is to put it bluntly, annoying.  These cases require pressure on the right spine to open the case, and once open, it is next to impossible to get the booklet out without bending it.  Over the super jewel case was a numbered cardboard slipcase which was stickered.  Because of the inclusion of "I Will Follow" the booklet is slightly different from other regions.  Instead of the two page spread of the band recording in the middle of the booklet, there is now two different pages at the start, one for I Will Follow like the other songs, and the inside cover is a series of old images of U2.  Although listed as 060251713599 on the spine and the CD, the sticker on the cover lists the catalog number as 0-060251713549-9.
