Silver & Gold
« on: December 16, 2012, 09:34:55 AM »
A b-side collection of tracks from the Joshua Tree/Rattle and Hum era.  I really think we have enough good tracks to make a strong album over what was left over/finished later.   

Silver & Gold

01.Spanish Eyes (the new single)
02.Dancing Barefoot
03.Sweetest Thing
04.Silver and Gold
05.Race Against Time
06.Luminous Times (Hold Onto Love)
07.Hallelujah Here She Comes
08.A Room At the Heartbreak Hotel
09.Deep In the Heart
10.Wave of Sorrow (Birdland)

You don't have to hate.  There are lot of people who like U2 of the 80's and don't know about these songs.

what? i was hating on the incorrect use of the term "b-side". you mean non-album track.


this is a good "2nd disc" to JT anywas. i did "2nd discs" to Oasis's Morning Glory and Radiohead's The Bends. The amount of A+ material that didn't make the album is staggering.

I think if you compare those tracks to the last couple of full albums they stand up very well.  Especially Spanish Eyes, the cover Dancing Barefoot and the semi-cover Silver and Gold.

Semi cover!? They wrote this in New York, it's not a cover is it?

 "Silver And Gold" (Sun City version)

"I was listening to a John Lee Hooker track and I asked, 'Who's playing the drums?' 'That's his foot,' Keith [Richards] said. 'He was just kicking at the floorboards.' I was blown out of it. I left with my head in a spin and I went back to my hotel room on my own and wrote 'Silver And Gold' and tried to apply what I'd just heard to the project at hand, which was an anti-apartheid record. I called Keith the next day and said, 'Can I come round, I've got a song I'd like to play for you? Maybe you'd like to play on it?' Keith said, 'Sure.' So I recorded an acoustic version of this, my first blues song, with Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

i'd say that makes S&G "inspired by" not a cover. DYFL is more a cover of "Alien Groove Sensation" than this S&G is a cover of something imo

I LOVE the 80's b-sides. This album would rank in my top 5 U2 albums. Luminous Times is a top 10 U2 song for me. Wave of Sorrow is amazing. Room at the Heartbreak Hotel is a side of U2 i'd like to see a lot more of. You just need to add Walk to the Water.
