U2 – Masterpiece Album ‘THE JOSHUA TREE’ Released 30 Years Ago Today…

On 9 March 1987 – 30 years ago today – U2 released their worldwide masterpiece album THE JOSHUA TREE. The Irish rockers fifth album, produced by Daniel Lanois and Brian
Eno
, made them 24 Karat superstars all over the planet. Influenced by their American tour experiences, relating literature and Uncle Sam’s politics and probably because of their commercial and competitive desire to confirm their already huge status in the U.S. of A.,
the band chose America as a central theme for the record. Legendary American rock magazine Rolling Stone was undoubtedly impressed with the new LP and journalist
Steve Pond wrote a classic review back then in 1987. You can read it here.

To celebrate the LP’s 30th birthday here are 3
of my (and of millions of others) favorite tracks…
