Videos by American Songwriter


Details on the bonus material for the upcoming reissue of U2’s 1984 album The Unforgettable Fire have been revealed. A special edition will include a bonus disc, featuring two unreleased songs, Yoshino Blossom” and “Disappearing Act.” There’s also a DVD, featuring music videos, a making-of documentary, and excerpts from the band’s performances at Live Aid in 1985 and Amnesty International’s Conspiracy Of Hope Concert in 1986.

The anthemic, experimental Unforgettable Fire was U2’s fourth album, and represented an artistic breakthrough, marking the first time the band paired with producers Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois. The reissue is due October 26 on Mercury Records.

According to U2.com: “Two of the titles from those Slane Castle sessions have never been available: ‘Yoshino Blossom’, and ‘Disappearing Act’, which the band recently completed. “A Sort of Homecoming” and “Bad” are live versions, from The Unforgettable Fire Tour that were on the highly sought after collectors item EP Wide Awake in America. The version of “11 O’Clock Tick Tock” was the b-side to ‘Pride (In The Name of Love)’ while Wire (Celtic Dub Remix) was previously on 7″ vinyl given away free with NME in May 1985.”
