The Best of 1990-2000 DVD
« on: December 19, 2006, 12:09:51 AM »
Hey, long time user of the site but just became a member
Had a few questions that I hope someone could help me with.
Does anyone have any news on a possible release of POPMART LIVE FROM MEXICO CITY on DVD? If it has already been released on DVD, how would I go about buying a copy online, because I can't find it in stores.
Also, does anyone know where I could find a copy of THE BEST OF 1980-1990 DVD online? I'd like a copy of the original A-Sides album, as well as the B-Sides album but also the DVD that was released of this collection. I can't find the B-Sides or the DVD in stores here in Australia.
The same applies with THE BEST OF 1990-2000. I'd like the A-Sides album as well as the B-Sides but also the double disc DVD. I can only find the single disc DVD here.
Any help with these questions is greatly appreciated
Thanks

This DVD comes with one disc only. The empty space in the cover is for the History Mix DVD which is shipped with the special edition of the Best of 1990-2000 CD (it has 2 CDs & 1 DVD).

OK, I see. And is there any way I can get the special ed. of the Best Of and the bonus disc shipped to Aus? Amazon wont ship here. I'm this close to flying across the world to get the damn thing...

In order to ask my question, I had to dig up this topic (and avoid unnecessarily starting a new topic).  My question is about the Limited Edition Bonus DVD that came with
the U2 compilation album The Best Of 1990-2000 (2 CDs and 1 DVD).

The Limited Edition Bonus DVD has the video Beautiful Day [»ze version] with a track time of 4:04

I researched the u2songs.com discography, but I was unable to confirm that the music in the video Beautiful Day [»ze version] is the same music as
Beautiful Day from the All That You Can't Leave Behind album.  Is it?

PopMart on DVD appears to be readily available online on Amazon.  Not sure why you'd have trouble finding it online, though I don't know what kind of DVD player you'd need for Australia if you bought a US copy.  https://www.amazon.com/U2-Popmart-Live-Mexico-City/dp/B000QUCQG0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1520278109&sr=8-1&keywords=u2+popmart+dvd

As for 1980-1990, that was never released on DVD unfortunately.  It was released on VHS and Video CD I believe.  I do have the video CD, which although it is a digital format, it's not very good quality.  It looks like it was also released on laserdisc, at least in Europe - I see one going for $300 on Amazon.  Not seeing much format info. on this on U2songs.  Maybe Aaron has yet to add that...  It also has a video for One Tree Hill from Tempe 12/20/1987 (Rattle and Hum outtake).

EDIT: Looks like more on the 80-90 vid is still available here: http://www.u2wanderer.org/disco/vid007.html

No mention there of a Laserdisc release, perhaps it's pretty rare!  Someone should buy it https://www.amazon.com/U2-Best-1980-1990-LASERDISC-SYSTEM/dp/B01599K59M/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1520279330&sr=8-2&keywords=u2+best+of+1980-1990+dvd

That post was created before the DVD release which was over ten years ago.

I actually think its time for another video retrospective. I know DVD's don't sell well anymore but it would be nice to be able to compile video events from 2002 onwards.

The Best of 90-00 was an impressive product.

I agree.  Maybe it will happen after the Songs Of Experience tour ends . . . . . when U2 is taking a break.

The 360 release included the videos for "Boots", "Magnificent" and "Crazy". The I+E release included the videos for the SOE songs. 18Videos included "Vertigo", "Sometimes", "Walk On" and "Elevation".

I'd almost prefer they went back and gave us a good digital version of the 1980s videos instead...

Agree.  The 80-90 video also had a number of omissions that could be included in a re-release.

Speaking of the 80s - I noticed that the YouTube video linked here (http://www.u2songs.com/videos/the_unforgettable_fire) is different from what is in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=feMcb7-MOsg.

Particularly, in the latter video, the intro. is slightly different, and omits the guitar sound and has a few spoken words.  Anyone ever notice this different "video version"?

Holy cow you're right! The clip hosted on U2Songs is the album version, but that other one is... something different. No guitar sounds on the intro, just piano, and some mumbling from Bono. Wow. Plus the video clips are different. Nice find!

Now that I have seen that "mumbling version," I'm pretty sure that's what is on the VHS version of The Unforgettable Fire Collection. I remember watching it many years ago and wondering what Bono was mumbling. But I totally forgot.

EDIT: I just checked U2.com and they have this alternate "mumbling" version as well... http://www.u2.com/media/player/133/1
