The bonus material stops with this second disc on the simple deluxe edition -- for the three-disc, "super" deluxe edition, the entire package is housed in a hardcover book, containing liner notes from band biographer Bill Flanagan, along with previously unpublished Corbijn photos and reminiscences by Bono, the Edge, Adam Clayton, Brian Eno, and Daniel Lanois. Also, there is a DVD contains an 18-song concert, "U2 Live from Paris," which documents a July 4, 1987, show, a brief documentary about their American tour called (what else?) Outside It's America, an alternate version of "With or Without You," and, most interesting of all, the never-seen Neil Jordan-directed video for "Red Hill Mining Town." Even if the $59.98 suggested retail price is a little steep, this book and video are nice additions that will please hardcore U2 fans, of which there are many -- plus, that high price justifies the release of the relatively bare-bones deluxe edition, as it's not only more affordable, it has the truly substantial musical rarities that should be heard by the widest audience.
