The Unforgettable Fire (expanded playlist)
« on: January 24, 2018, 11:44:34 AM »
I love The Unforgettable Fire and have a playlist that I feel gives a more complete picture.  I see there a number of TUF fans here so wanted to share.  Please take a listen and let me know what you think.  From track to track I really like the flow.  I didn't include Disappearing Act because I think the sound of Bono's voice doesn't really fit.  I have that song on my NLOTH playlist.

1. Boomerang I
2. A Sort of Homecoming
3. Pride (long version)
4. Wire
5. Yoshino Blossum
6. The Unforgettable Fire
7. Love Comes Tumbling
8. Promenade
9. Bass Trap
10. 4th of July
11. The Three Sunrises
12. Indian Summer Sky
13. Boomerang II
14. Elvis Presley in America
15. Sixty Seconds In Kingdom Come
16. Bad
17. MLK
18. untitled instrumental track I found years ago from this era.
19. In a Lifetime (Clannad with Bono)
20. Heroine (The Edge with Sinead O'Connor)
21. A Sort of Homecoming (with Peter Gabriel)
22. Pride (original shorter album version). 
23+  live tracks and remixes

I hope we get a good quality live full concert album or blu-ray one day from this wonderful era.

'Pride (long version). Didn't know there was one. Why was this not on TUF? The long version of 'New Years Day' was on 'War'

'A sort of Homecoming with Peter Gabriel'? This must be a live track.

Have not heard some of these songs. Probably a good reason, as they would have been left off TUF for a reason - not good enough.

But nothing wrong with creating your own track list.

It was on the 12" single.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

It's a mix made by Daniel Lanois with Peter Gabriel when they were recording the "So" album. It was considered as a potential single at the time. It appeared on the recent remaster of TUF.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

I'd love that too but I seriously doubt it. There are only 3 UF Tour soundboards bootlegs that I'm aware of : Dortmund, Nantes and Montreal. Dortmund has a video but the show is incomplete.
If there were more, I believe we would have heard them by now.

What's really strange is that many, many shows were recorded and broadcasted on radio for the War tour and it helped to boost U2 but by the UF Tour they almost did none. This change of strategy is very weird.

12 inch singles. Those were the days.

You still get some artists releasing 12" singles these days. But you can expect to pay between 12 and 15+ for many of them

Actually the New Jersey show from the UF tour may be the best bootleg out there. It is audience recorded but sounds almost soundboard, and it is a complete show. The soundboard recordings, especially Nantes, suffer from the gain being so high that it's virtually unlistenable. I tried fixing it with reverb and extra crowd noise, but it's still pretty harsh on the ears.
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.
