  1. I've got TJT on the brain. This summer's gonna be awesome. I wrote a little post about why I think this album kicked so much @$$.

  2. Hey everyone, With Joshua Tree Tour 2017 less than months away, I've been listening to this awesome album more closely than I have in years. I've been trying to re-experience it by playing it loudly on my new speakers in my car. Trying to recapture the feelings I had when first heard this CD thirty years ago is hard. I needed to filter out all of the noise and just hear it. What are great album. I wrote a blog post on remembering the album that represented the band's love affair with America. They charged ahead with a bold, new sound and blew us all away. If you're so inclin

    JT Cassette

    I had the tape, too. I played it so much it snapped in my cassette deck in my car. It took the the rest of the afternoon removed what seemed like a mile of tape. I bought another one but alas, I gave it to a friend when I switched over to compact discs. Sadly, I do not think that tapes will encounter a resurgence like vinyl records, but man, were they cool. Nice pic! -Rich P.S. If you are so inclined, please check out my U2 fan blog (AchtungNinja.com). I've been posting about The Joshua Tree and what an awesome album it still is.
  8. I wrote a few posts called When I Became a Fan (parts I, II & III) on my blog site about this landmark album last summer. It was an album that came at just the right time for me. It was a tough time in my life and that is why it has such a special place in my heart. What a fanatic record it was--and still is. It's a little too long to write here, but suffice it to say I was high school kid struggling with the loss of a parent. TJT spoke to me in a way that I never would have expected. I didn't even like rock music before it. Man, did it change me. Please check it out, if you
