1979-06-00 - Dublin, Ireland - Windmill Lane Studios


Comments: U2 records a brief studio session with producer Chas de Whalley; the exact date is unknown, and although we believe it might have taken place in June 1979, many sources simply say "mid 1979". Out Of Control, Stories For Boys, and Boy-Girl are subsequently released on U2's debut single, U2:3, in September 1979. Out Of Control was chosen as the single's a-side after the three songs were played on Dave Fanning's radio show and listeners voted on which they prefered. New, much more polished versions of Out Of Control, Stories For Boys, and A Day Without Me were recorded for the Boy album in 1980. This was U2's first session at Windmill Lane, where a number of subsequent albums were recorded by the band.

This is a demo recording. 3 songs will be inside their first album completely in a new different sound. The band is not at the top of the BOY album. Novice U2 but still i love them!


It's not 4 stars for me. Like studio recording I expected a clean sound, but instead is continually disturbed by an high-frequency sound. Nothing to worry so much about but...
Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars


No audience no clapping hands! Studio recording.


Interesting to hear 3 songs of the first album in a different version. But if you don't like BOY so much this is not a must to have for you. Jost download it for your collection!
