Classic Albums: U2: The Joshua Tree is a 1987 music documentary that details the making of and inspiration behind the influential multi-platinum album from the rock group. In addition to becoming a number one hit in both the United States and UK, The Joshua Tree was acknowledged as more of a hard-hitting sound for the group in comparison to the ambient sound of previous releases. The documentary highlights this fact and speaks with the band, in addition to U2's manager Paul McGuiness and the record's producer Steve Lillywhite, about what went into the inspiration for the change. The band members felt this harder sound was needed as a backdrop for the lyrics which were more politically charged than anything they had ever done before. Unique stories such as how the master tape for the song, "Where The Streets Have No Name," was nearly lost and how one of U2's most popular songs came by accident are just a few of the musings that are touched on during the 60-minute documentary. Intertwined are concert performances from the band that put a picture to the songs that made The Joshua Tree a truly classic album and established U2 as rockers to be reckoned with.moreless
