The 40th anniversary of U2’s first release, the 1979 EP Three,
Three was produced as a 12 inch and subsequently a 7 inch, with an initial run of 1,000 individually numbered copies. It has been reissued four times since then, but it remains a hard item to track down and wasn't released on CD until 2008 as part of the bonus disc with the reissue of Boy, U2's first album. The track order was determined by a listener poll on Dave Fanning's radio show. Callers chose "Out of Control" to be the A-side of the record, with "Boy/Girl" and "Stories for Boys" as runners-up, constituting the B-side of the record.
About the 12" version: U2 - Three - First release, 1000 copies made, is numbered with sticker on CBS sleeve. Band members names inscribed on both sides of the vinyl in the dead wax. Ireland spelled correctly on label, "Made in England" on bottom.
