That is a great BB King line!

Oh Rattle and Hum, I am appreciating you!  (If I were a poet I would write an ode but I can't, so I won't try)

I love Edge's Van Diemen's Land.   :)

So do I but it's bookended by irritation which irritates the hell out of me.

Yes... but it was their journey to find roots, to find themselves, to find their way forward and these two songs (and their authors) played a big part in that journey... "a musical journey."  hehehe  :D

Will the Deluxe include a non-bookended version? Nah probably not.

Any album that has Angel of Harlem and All I Want Is You on it will always be near and dear to my heart! ;)

Okay,

I love Van Diemen's Land, Desire, All I Want Is You and Angel of Harlem. (and all the rest too, but those are my favourites)

My favorites are Heartland, All I Want is You, Hawkmoon... but I really like Desire, too.

And mine too.  You never forget your first time, even if it's not your best.

You mean the first time you listened to it? I know I won't forget that.

Angel Of Harlem had me on the day of the release.  God Part II took some time.

I really enjoy many of the RAH tracks-- how to pick only a few... hmmm....

My favorites may be When Love Comes to Town-- I love the theme there but also love BB King-- and I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For.  Van Diemen's Land, In God's Country  and Heartland haunt me and I find the music and lyrics swirling around in my mind long after I have listened to them.  

The little snippet, Freedom For My People, is also a great one.  The words here drive me, spur me on like a good kick in the pants (much like NLOTH to me).   Also, if you notice at the beginning of that scene, there is a wooden framed scaffold like affair on which is hung shirts/ clothing for sale (I am assuming).  This is how people commonly hang items for sale in the markets here or on the street corners.  Reminds me of Ghana.  :)

(I am leaving off Streets and WOWY but not b/c I do not appreciate them-- I DO-- but being found on other albums as well, I decided to focus on my favorites that are particular to RAH.  Can't not love Streets or WOWY or Pride for that matter either!  :D)
