Did you know that November is National Beethoven Awareness month?  You didn’t?  Well, you are welcome.  November 1, 2011 is also the day that the Ultra Deluxe Box Set of U2’s best album “Achtung Baby” comes out.  Disc 6 is the jewel of the package, according2g.  An entirely different version of the album as the songs from U2’s most creative album were still being worked out.  Sounds great and it also proves that part of U2’s genius is the producer they pick to refine their sound, as you will hear.  I mention U2 because the poster for the deluxe box set as well as the docmentary “From the Sky Down” is pictured next to Obey Thoven.

Now you’ve learned two things today.

An Uber Deluxe Edition will be the most elaborate (and expensive) version of the set, will include all of the following in a numbered magnetic puzzle-tiled box:

• Six CDs including Achtung Baby and its 1993 follow up Zooropa, plus discs featuring B sides, outtakes and reworked versions of unheard material from the Achtung sessions

• Four DVDs including ZOO TV: Live From Sydney, the new documentary From the Sky Down and all of the music videos from the period

• Five clear 7-inch singles in replicas of their original packaging

• 16 art prints from the original album sleeve

• 84-page hardback book

• One issue of Propaganda fanclub magazine

• Four badges

• One sticker sheet

Achtung Baby will also be reissued as a vinyl box set featuring the album along with two translucent blue vinyl disc featuring B sides and remixes and a double-disc CD with a bonus disc of B sides and rarities.  A remastered version without extras will also be released.
