Possible Live/Studio R&H Type Album?

I have a friend who works at BestBuy who knows I'm a huge U2 fan and he tells me that the store has a tentative release date of November 21st for a U2 live/studio album. Take it with a grain of salt. I personally can see it making some sense. Throw Mercy on there and 3 or 4 new tracks and 6 live tracks from The Vertigo Tour and you have yourself a nice christmas gift. Cheers and heres to hoping this is true!

I would like to see maybe a double EP.

One with studio tracks, the other with live tracks

but album in '07 > EP in '06.

Considering the fact that they seem to see the R&H idea as a failure I don’t see it happening but I sure would love it.


My EP idea.

What would the album title be...?

Make a whole thread about that I say!

A quote from Bomb songs?

We'll have a vote between:

"How to Kneel" - Vertigo
AND
"An Intellectual Tortoise" - ABOY

I concur, I doubt the kids working at Best Buy would have this information fist

U know why I don't buy this , simple as that , coz I just don't believe in u2 releasing a Album or Ep live ....... Before u call me crazy or somethin .....

Hasta La vista / u2 communication aren't official releases

the recent live stuff in cds are the singles

Last time u2 did release worldwide something live : RH , Since then

I just don't see u2 breakin this tradition of almost none live official big release , specially in a time of more and more dvds being out , and 2 more coming ...... Plus the tour is not over yet so .....

doesn't mean I would complain

No more R&H's! It was a fun tryst, but no more.

Though it might usher in a new sound for U2 when/if it fails.

Just before Sunday Bloody Sunday:

"This is a song George Bush stole from us; we're stealing it back!"

Critcal reaction?

"You know, I've never quite noticed...but Bono never seems to shut up, does he?"

And then, with their next release...

Punk Rock From Venus, AKA War II, AKA A Man's A Man's Man!

well, a lot of bands have recently done the "buy the new album get a free live album" thing.

MAYBE U2 will release a new CD to coincide with the new tour dates and have a limited edition version (of just 2 billion) including Vertigo Milan (either as a DVD or CD)?

I don't see this happening in a millions years
but I hope they'll do it

mostly so that we can see what sort of album U2 can produce in a (relative) short space of time

Like I said, I'm just old-fashioned like that. I like to keep my original tracks and bootlegs separate. R&H was a failure. A very, very fun and amusing failure, but a failure nonetheless. The album didn't work as a whole at all, and most of the live tracks were of songs we didn't need a second version of.

Unless U2 did something really great like mix new songs with really rare songs, I wouldn't be looking forward to it. Imagine this...

Guess it's time for J_NP step up and deffend RH After all it was the last album I bought , and sometimes I find it way more enjoyable than even a Best of album ..... yeah believe it or not ......

And on it's defense , I don't know how can u call iy a failure Lemon , coz u see , commercially speaking :

-It sold more than 14 millions , it's the 3rd best selling album

And in terms of music itself .........Call a failure an album that had those singles , plus God Part II , Hawkmoon ......

If every failure was like that , Man what would be music today

Rattle and Hum sucked as a whole.

If they do this, it better be one disk of studio tracks and a second disk of live tracks. The R&H format was extremely annoying.
