Boy, October and War, U2's first three albums, have been remastered and are now released worldwide.

Following the remastered release of The Joshua Tree last year, Edge has now overseen re-mastering of Boy (1980), October (1981) and War (1983).

All three have been remastered from the original audio tapes. Each album will be released as a standard single disc, a deluxe double version including a disc of b-sides, live tracks and rarities, and an LP version pressed on 180gm virgin vinyl.

The packaging on all three titles has been restored and expanded, with new liner notes for each record, previously unseen photos and full lyrics.

The albums will come in three formats - the remastered single CD, a deluxe format including a bonus CD of b-sides, live tracks and rarities, and the vinyl format. A 16 page booklet features unseen photos, lyrics and liner notes from Paul Morley. Edge has contributed notes on the bonus material.

Speed of Life, Saturday Night and Cartoon World are among the rare and previously unreleased tracks featured in the reformatted edition of the band's first album, Boy.
