Live CD? @ 05:29 pm

thefreeme:
I'm currently feelin: curious curious

Heya,
this may come off a bit awkward, but, here goes:

I watched the Slane Castle concert on Direct tv the entire month of December. Sometimes 2 or 3 times a day. To say I enjoyed it was an understatement. I've never been to a U2 concert...or, any concert, really. (Shhhh...I'm blocking out that *one* concert I went to when I was twelve to see... *ashamed look* New Kids on the Block *hangs head in shame*...now you know why I wanted to block that out and forget it.) I've heard a couple of songs performed live, and, amazingly, they sometimes sound better than the studio recordings! (With or Without You being my favorite) I suppose, like a good wine, it gets better with age, things are fine tuned, and all that energy of the crowd mixed in...well to say I was blown away would be about right.

I suppose there's a point coming along sometime soon...Ah, yes! here it is!
Do you ever think (seeing there's a DVD of it) that the concert at Slane Castle will be made into a cd? The songs, anyway? A live U2 cd down the road shortly? Am I the only one liking the idea of a live performance CD?

I have an extreme fondness for "Out of Control" and "All I Want is You" from Slane(Never having heard it before the DirectTV showing--I know, I know, I'm a bad U2 fan. I'm only familiar with the radio tunes. Only recently have I started purchasing the cd's.)

That's it for now, just that one question...(or two) up in there somewhere. ;o)

oh, and, hi! :o)

They really should put out a CD. I downloaded mp3s that were ripped from the Slane DVD off of the bit torrent site http://suprnova.org/. I have no idea if it's still available (quick check, I couldn't find it).

Thanks, but on dial up, that's not really an option, unless I want to rip my eyes out with the wait and the disconnects. ;o)

The Slane recording came out on CD the same day the DVD did, I believe. =) I've seen it in quite a few stores.

I thought so too, but I looked on amazon and it says nothing.
it may have been the jewel case dvd you saw in the stores...I got that from online (expecting the dvd case one, kind of a bummer).

They did not come out with a Live Slane CD. You probably saw the jewel case version of the DVD which many stores put in the CD section of the store.

That's weird, because when I called the store (Borders, I believe) they said they didn't have the DVD but they did have the CD.

Why did they make it in a jewel case form anyway? O.O It's so confusing...

LOL! Try and independent music store who'll know what their talking about. All good stockists will stock the DVD. No such CD ever came out.

Well, as I said in my response, many stores put it in the CD section. I think they put it there because they thought it was a CD, not a DVD. They did the same with the Coldplay DVD.

Welcome thefreem. We've been expecting you.

Well, I looked at the audio shows I have on my hard drive and I couldn't find one that had Out of Control. I'd have to look through my stuff to find her a good bootleg that has that song on it.

thefreeme, what CDs of theirs do you already have and which are your favorite? I'll see if I can find some live shows for you to have.

Re: which cds

(Link)
I started getting them backwards, so I have the best of 1990-2000, All That You Can't Leave Behind, and the best of 1980-1990.

A favorite? I can't choose! that's like asking my favorite food!
Pizza, no, chocolate, no, grilled cheese sandwiches, strawberries, no! I can't decide! :oD

New Kids on the Block? Better than only being to an *NSYNC concert (more like LIPSYNC). Yes, I confess, that's all I've experienced. Poor deprived us...we must see U2!

Trust me, no, I think I would've rathered NSYNC than NKotB.
I'll just chalk it up to me being a brainwashed pre-teen. yes. And then I got my senses back and started appreciating real music again.

i'm a massive U2 fan, and you REALLY need to get to one of their concerts. It was the most fun I've ever had at a show. And I've been to plenty. I may only be 19, but I've seen my fair share- U2, Springsteen, Eagles, just to name a few. So really, the next time they are in town, gotta get yourself a seat. You could be in the nose bleeds and still have a blast.

Re: concert.

(Link)
Yes. On the list of things to do in my lifetime.
Going to a U2 concert is up there.
Along with going to see a good play on Broadway.
I missed my chance with Les Miserables. oh well.
I always have a problem finding someone to go with. When I ask my friends, months in advance, they ask me when it's closer to the concert date. By then they cancel, and I really don't like the idea of going alone.
But yes, by gum, I will see U2.
