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.

"This band is hitting out against all the blippety blop aural wallpaper we have rammed down our throats on the radio and TV every day. I am personally bloody sick of every time I switch on the radio of being blasted with this contrived crap."
