Unforgettable Fire: Re-Release October 2009
« on: July 31, 2009, 02:23:26 PM »
Somebody mentioned the next re-releases in a different thread, I think in the IGCIIDGCT (longest abbreviation ever) thread, but I'd rather not tack this onto an already six-page long topic.

Got this message in an e-mail from a U2 collectors' group:
Quote
For those who haven't witnessed a gig from the latest World Tour yet : The official merchandise sold during the concerts is put in a plastic bag with publicity for the next remaster:

"Coming October 2009
The Unforgettable Fire
25th Anniversary Ediution
available on:
- Super deluxe
- Deluxe
- CD
- Vinyl
- Download
Deluxe Editions include B-sides, rare and previously unreleased songs, videos and film footage
More U2 catalogue Remasters to follow..."

I once had a download labeled "The Unforgettable Demos," and have seen bootleg vinyls with similar titles, that included an instrumental version of Unforgettable Fire (song, not album) and an unreleased song called Be There. They were both great, especially Be There, so I hope those tracks are among the rarities.

Darn!  When I saw this new thread I was hoping someone had unearthed the track list for the bonus CD.  I'm sure it's coming soon...

I'm just stoked they're continuing with the remasters! I thought maybe the death of the CD single would have impacted on these somehow. Am rapt they're doing this! Bring on October.

I also have this download, very nice, how long is the Be There song though? Curious to see if its included on the one I have.

FAIL.

I just noticed that there was a news update awhile back that said the same stuff as this post, and had a link to a photo of the bag. Serves me right for not checking.

thanks GodPtII, darn its not on my copy of it. Hope that there is a bunch (four or five) unreleased tracks on this version, not just remixes though.

I've seen teh bag in Barcelona and Dublin now from others who have bought stuff.  But everytime I get near a merch table, they have no bags left.  I did finally pick up a tour book in Dublin which I hope to go through in the next couple of days.  :-)

This reminds me of having read somewhere (on the old Wire u2-list perhaps?) that there are two known outtakes of Be There. Sadly, I have never gotten hold of the second version. Does this ring a bell to anybody?

Amazon and amazon.uk both have the single disc UF remaster up for pre-order, so hopefully the deluxe sets (and track listings) will be appearing soon.

Thank God there's something new to buy because I was running out of space under my mattress for my tons of loose cash.  :)

Yes, I've had to convert to gold because it takes up less space.  ;)

Aaron, would be nice to hear about your U2 travels, even if you "suck" at forums. Would be like Festivus for the rest of us stuck back here on the ground, waiting for the US shows.  ;)
