Deluxe U2 reissues on the way

It's a good time to be a U2 fan - their earliest work, which some would argue is their very best, is being reissued with an enormous amount of rare material. So says Reuters:
"Boy," "October" and "War," all due July 22 via Universal, will be available as remastered single CDs, deluxe sets with a second disc of extras, and on vinyl. U2's 1980 debut album, "Boy," features the previously unreleased tracks "Speed of Life," "Saturday Night" and "Cartoon World" and a previously unreleased mix of "I Will Follow." Live versions of "Boy-Girl" and "11 O'Clock Tick Tock," taped at London's Marquee club, are also included. The new edition of 1981's "October" boasts a series of tracks drawn from London's Hammersmith Palais and Boston's Paradise Theatre, including "Gloria" and "I Will Follow," a BBC session with Richard Skinner and Common Ground's remix of "Tomorrow." "War" (1983) includes the previously unreleased track "Angels Too Tied to the Ground," several remixes of "New Year's Day" and "Two Hearts Beat as One," as well as the 7-inch single edit of "New Year's Day."
