U2’s The Joshua Tree turns 30 today — we just ranked its tracks worst to best to commemorate its release — and the band has announced an “ultimate collector’s edition” of the album featuring the album itself (of course), a performance from the Joshua Tree tour at Madison Square Garden in 1987, B-sides and outtakes, and an 84-page hardcover book of unreleased photography shot by the edge during the 1986 Mojave Desert photo shoot.
