U2: Out of Control [1979]
U2: Stories for Boys [1979]
U2: Boy / Girl [1979]

The entirety of U2's first 7", titled Three.

If you weren't told this was U2, who would you guess it was? I hear Television and The Strokes among others.

Read about it here.

Buy some U2 here.

The opening riff of "Out of Control" is awesome.

Thank you very much for these -- I had all the U2 7"s from all the way through the "War" album -- they came in two sets, packaged in a kind of vinyl blister pack. Lost 'em in a fire in the late eighties.

Doesn't look like the labels are ever going to release 'em, so thanks very much. Any chance of other prehistoric U2 7"s showing up here?

Hey Matt,

I actually have the rest of the 7"s, so they might just show up sometime in the next few weeks. There are so many other things in the queue right now, but I'll throw those in.

Thanks for the comments, everyone, including c.

Wow. I haven't heard these songs in nearly 20 years. I can't wait for the others to be posted. Do you have the "Celebration" single?
