Sorry if this has been asked before.

U2's early albums were obviously made into CD versions, I'm just wondering if any singles were, and if I can find this Pride single with Boomerang II on it?

Search EBay. You'll have no trouble finding 'em.

I've got a complete collection of U2 CD singles, which I found from import/second-hand stores years ago. Island Germany put out a bunch of 'em in 1992.

Yeah, I think every U2 single since Fire is available on CD.

I have Fire on CD. So "since Fire" should mean "including Fire."

Well, yeah, that's what I meant by 'since Fire'.

Nothing! Utterly nothing! Give me your Fire CD single and you shall receive glorious nothing in return!

It's a deal you can't refuse!

Wow, I lose my CD single and I get nothing in return. It's a win-win situation!


And yet...this tiny voice in the back of my head says I should refuse. I can't imagine why.

$19 for it on Ebay.

Well thanks for the replies, if there are CD versions, maybe I'll be able to find it Ireland, going in a couple weeks.

Allegedly, Bono sings backup on it, and Adam sings lead?

But then you would get J. Swallow, and I would have nothing.

Actually Gloria, A Celebration, and Two Hearts Beat As One were all released after Fire, and were never released as CD singles.

Also 40, In God's Country, and One Tree Hill were released in selected countries, but never on CD.

The u2wanderer.org site is excellent when you need to know something about U2's discography.
