Discography & Releases / Re: The Joshua Tree 30th Anniversary Re-re-release

Eureka! Iíve discovered the guiding principle for U2ís editing of live shows.
It was right in front of my eyes, like those spinning red dots after a 6-pack of Guinness...




Some quick math yields a simple solution. This is childís play for any grade school mind like mine.

It could also answer other age old questions such as:  Is there really a Santa Claus? What is a MFiT, really, and can I save a .jpg of one to my desktop? Will it be chilly on Mars? Should I take a sweater? When will the next album be released and will global warming have expanded the oceans so far by then that Iíll need a canoe to make it to 7-11 for some Fritos?

Hm . . . that's interesting.  When I went to my Store Preferences box, the box for Automatically download album artwork was not checked.  And because of that, iTunes should not have been adding Album Artwork to my tracks.

The only one that had a box checked was:  Share details about your library with Apple

Oh . . . . . wait a minute
I just did something while I was typing this reply.  Above those selections, there is some info.  It says I must sign-in to change my Store Preferences.  Well, shit . . . . . . . I wasn't signed-in.  OK so . . . . . . now I am going to sign-in.  Now, the Store Preferences box has different boxes checked.  The boxes for these are now checked:
-  Sync playback information across devices
-  Automatically download album artwork

Well, there it is!  That solves my problem.
So all this time (ever since I have had iTunes), I was not signed-in to my iTunes account whenever I made changes to my Store preferences box.  And so . . . . . . those changes were not actually made!  So it was my fault for not being signed-in.  No wonder iTunes was adding Album Artwork to my tracks.  I would not have learned this without you, U2Joshua.  Thank you so much!

Thanks, man.  Now I know.  And, I lament that I've posted photos, many times before, only now realizing they were never seen.  :(  Never again!  :P

okay, @dagobah, I've updated all photos in this post, now, FWIW.  Please confirm visibility, and if you're still interested, hopefully my first set of photos will still prove helpful in navigating various iTunes views, etc.
Like I wrote in my post above, I see all the photos in your post on page 1 of this thread.  It's a great explanation and I really appreciate it.  My iTunes Library is in the Songs View.  And I choose not to show artwork because, for me, it takes up too much space.

I want only these columns of info on my iTunes track screen (from left to right):
Track NameTrack TimeArtistAlbumCommentsNumber Of Plays

Yes, I could also have a column for Kind, but I rarely need that info.  And since I rarely need that info, I don't want it cluttering up my iTunes screen.  But when I do want that info, I right-click on the track, choose Get Info and look at the top left of the Get Info box.  There will either be Album Artwork or . . . . . . the generic iTunes image of a musical note.  If I see Album Artwork, it better be because I purchased the track from iTunes, Amazon, Beatport, etc.

But with this new discovery (new for me) of iTunes . . . . . on its own . . . . . . adding Album Artwork to tracks that I imported from my own CDs . . . . . . I am not happy.  In my mind, I expect to see Album Artwork only for tracks I purchased.

Today, I discovered its not just U2 albums.  Its with many other albums, too.  So now . . . . . . some of my imported tracks have Album Artwork and some don't.  iTunes thinks it is providing me a benefit, but its not a benefit for me.  I will now delete all the Album Artwork that iTunes added because I prefer the simplicity and the consistency of my long established way of knowing which tracks were purchased.  We all have our quirks and this is one of mine.  I just hope iTunes doesn't add the Album Artwork again . . . . . . at some point in the future.

I just got home from work and here's my feedback on the images issue.
On page 1 of this thread, I now see images in U2Joshua's post from:

June 5, 2017   10:39:30 PM

However, I did not see those images on the day that post was submitted.

That was the date of the SF concert in which they didn't play that track.

If you listen to this video boot (which many not be correct you can hear Bono speak Spanish which isn't on JT30)
