It's the best stuff available with some quality from the 1987-1988 period. There some soundcheck sessions of unreleased stuff.
About the first three songs. These versions are demo mixes of fragments from the Rattle and Hum movie outtakes. The stuff was cut in those scenes which was reallt anoying.the bits and pieces together make something that could resemble the songs as written and performed by Bono and The Edge, back in 1987.

"We'd been told that all bands are out of it on stage and so we tried that once in about 1977. And it was such an unmitigated disaster that we vowed at that point that we'd never do it again."
