OTHER NOTES
In 2004 Apple's iTunes store released a "Digital Box Set" of U2 Recordings entitled The Complete U2.  The set was made available only through the iTunes music store for download.  Included within the set were several rare recordings grouped as albums.  These "Digital Albums" were accompanied by new artwork designed by Four5One, the creative design firm which has done most of U2's albums throughout the years.  These cover images were released in an accompanying "PDF" file along with information about the full set of songs in the "Digital Box Set".  It is not known at this time if Apple plans on releasing these "Digital Albums" separate from the box set - at this time they are only available when one purchases The Complete U2.  The tracks could be downloaded in Apple's AAC format for compressed music.

This 3 song EP was included with the "digital box set" and contained 3 tracks from U2's earliest recording sessions, dating back to those that gave us Boy. The sessions were recorded with Barry Devlin producing in Keystone Studios.  The entire first demo, recorded in April of 1978 is included here.  Two further demo tapes would be recorded before the band recieved their contract and began recording for the first album.  All three demo tapes have shown up on bootleg recordings over the years, usually placed together on one CD.  These digital files released with the "digital box set" are a remarkable improvement over the versions I've heard from these various bootlegs.

If you want to hear U2 at their earliest than these three songs are it.  There is no earlier performance which has officially been released by the band.  This was their first recorded work in a studio.
