Deluxe version japan OBI

Track six reads Invisible. Track seven reads The Crystal Ballroom (12" Mix) Japan Exclusive Track.

Whoa, whoa, whoa--is this a CD, or just another vinyl?

This is the deluxe CD - the two disc copy.  The Japan copy started shipping today.  Mine hasn't arrived yet, so I can't confirm all of the details.  However I do have a good friend in Japan who will be picking it up when it goes on sale (tomorrow is the actual release date).

All I can promise is that the OBI strip lists the 12" mix as an exclusive.  And it also lists Invisible as a separate track.  Once I have it in my possession, or Don confirms for me what's on it from Japan, I'll let you know. 

I bought mine on HMV Japan - be careful because the Japanese sites will list imports as well as domestic released CDs.  Look for the catalog numbers, or something that says a Japan pressing.  The listing on HMV still only lists five tracks.

This is an auction for it showing the front and back OBI (Catalog UICI-1134/5):

If you zoom in you'll see that the OBI lists seven tracks, however the back of the CD case still lists five.

If you go to the Universal Japan web site listed on that photo Aaron just posted, you get the 7-song track listing for the bonus disc. I translated the page and it came up with this for Disc 2:

DISC2
1 Lucifer's Hands
2 The Crystal Ballroom
3 Acoustic Sessions
4 The Troubles (Alternative Version)
5 Sleep Like a Baby Tonight (Alternative Perspective Mix by Chad Blake)
6 Invisible
7 The Crystal Ballroom (12 inch mix)

They own me even worse.  I bought it in advance of knowing any of this.  :)

That's the listing for the deluxe version (the two disc version) - the catalog number is the same.

Not to derail all the Japan CD talk, but here's "Volcano" live on Jools Holland, and it's a rocking full band version. The arrangement is somewhat different from what is on the album, at least during the second half.

Yes, but that obi strip is likely referring to the regular version of Crystal Ballroom, right? Not the 12" Remix?

Taiwan has the same disc as in other countries.  "The Crystal Ballroom" is on that disc in all countries.  Japan is getting the 12-inch mix, which is labeled as a Japanese Exclusive Track on the OBI strip itself.

Since the contents of the bonus disc are still hazy, due in no small part to U2 taking six songs and lumping them together as one, let's review the contents, shall we?  :)

WORLDWIDE DISC 2
1. Lucifer's Hands
2. The Crystal Ballroom
3. Acoustic Sessions
*Every Breaking Wave [From Acoustic Sessions]
*California (There is No End to Love) [From Acoustic Sessions]
*Raised by Wolves [From Acoustic Sessions]
*Cedarwood Road [From Acoustic Sessions]
*Song for Someone [From Acoustic Sessions]
*The Miracle (of Joey Ramone) [Busker Version]
4. The Troubles [Alternative Version]
5. Sleep Like a Baby Tonight [Alternative Perspective Mix by Tchad Blake]
*Invisible

NOTE: The Acoustic Sessions tracks are not listed anywhere on the CD packaging. However, the songs are separated and listed individually on digital versions of the deluxe edition. Similarly, "Invisible" is not listed anywhere on the CD packaging, but is rather a hidden track after one minute of silence on track 5. "Invisible" is not listed separately on digital versions of the deluxe.

JAPAN DISC 2 [but interestingly, NOT Australia, which usually gets the same bonus track as Japan]
1. Lucifer's Hands
2. The Crystal Ballroom
3. Acoustic Sessions
*Every Breaking Wave [From Acoustic Sessions]
*California (There is No End to Love) [From Acoustic Sessions]
*Raised by Wolves [From Acoustic Sessions]
*Cedarwood Road [From Acoustic Sessions]
*Song for Someone [From Acoustic Sessions]
*The Miracle (of Joey Ramone) [Busker Version]
4. The Troubles [Alternative Version]
5. Sleep Like a Baby Tonight [Alternative Perspective Mix by Tchad Blake]
6. Invisible
7. The Crystal Ballroom (12" Mix)

NOTE: Acoustic Sessions are still one track on this CD, but "Invisible" has been separated as Track 6 and a 7th track, "The Crystal Ballroom (12" Version)" has been added as a bonus. This 7th song was previously available only on Side 4 of the vinyl edition, or as a streaming track from U2.com. I'm sure they added "Invisible" separately because it wouldn't really make sense to have a hidden track AND THEN segue into a bonus track. It just makes more sense to present it this way.

It will be interesting to see if "Sleep Like a Baby" still has one minute of silence tagged on at the end on the Japan CD, or if that has been eliminated.
