U2 ‘The
Unforgettable Fire’ [Release Date 26/10/2009]

CD  I     2CD   I    2CD/DVD Set   I   LP

"this ain't mere genius, this is rock 'n'
roll
" – Kerrang, October 1984

U2's fourth album, 'The
Unforgettable Fire' has been remastered and will be released by Mercury Records
on 26th October.

This special edition marks 25 years
since the album's original release in October 1984. Recorded at Slane Castle,
Ireland, 'The Unforgettable Fire' was the first U2 album to be produced by Brian
Eno and Danny Lanois, and spawned two top 10 UK singles – 'Pride (In The Name Of
Love)' and 'The Unforgettable Fire'.

Special formats of The Unforgettable
Fire will also feature bonus audio material, including two previously unheard
tracks from the Slane Castle sessions: “Yoshino Blossom”, and “Disappearing Act”
(a track which the band recently completed), and a DVD including music videos, a
documentary and unreleased live footage from the Amnesty International
Conspiracy of Hope Tour in 1986. The Unforgettable Fire has been remastered from
the original audio tapes, with direction from The
Edge.

MORRISSEY
‘Swords’ [Release Date 26/10/2009]

CD  I    2CD  I  2LP

It draws b-sides from many of the
singles taken from 'You are the Quarry', 'Ringleader of the Tormentors',
'Greatest Hits' and 'Years Of Refusal'.

Although these tracks were
originally released as b-sides, heard together and alongside each other on this
CD they sound superb as a collection in their own right, and is a wonderful
journey through some of Morrissey's lesser heard tracks recorded over the last 5
years.

There is a limited edition format
for initial orders that comes superbly packaged with an extra disc recorded live
in Warsaw. It
contains 8 tracks never before released, recorded during his current 2009 world
tour and captures Morrissey on awesome form.

THE FALL 'Last Night At The Palais: Live At Hammersmith Palais April 1st 2007' [Release Date 24/08/2009]

CD/DVD: Historic live recording from The Fall's Reformation Post TLC tour of 2007. * Adds a DVD of the complete concert documenting the final show at London's famous Hammersmith Palais. * DVD adds the Bonus 'Reformation' Video. * Sleeve notes by Fall expert Daryl Easlea On January 21st 2007, the Hammersmith Palais, one of London's most historic music venues was condemned to suffer the fate of other prestigious halls in the capital and in the name of homogenous urban progress, close its doors to be converted into an office complex and restaurant. By a strange quirk of fate, the last band to ever play there was The Fall. Their Hammersmith gig on 1st April had been booked as part of their 20 date UK spring tour to promote the release of their 27th album, 'Reformation Post TLC'. Never one to play a greatest hits set, Smith with this seven-piece though short-lived line-up which mixed the US and UK wings of the band (supporting Smith and his keyboard-playing wife Elena, were guitarists Tim Presley and Pete Greenway, bassists Rob Barbato and Dave "The Eagle" Spurr and the ever-smiling Opheo McCord on drums) delivered a mainly recent, forthcoming and unreleased set of songs to the capacity crowd. The only concessions to The Fall's 80's & 90's repertoire being 'Right Place, Wrong Time' and 'White Lightning'. Whilst not quite the sending-off that some die-hard Palais supporters had visualised (one stage invader ralied against the lack of recognition to the occasion from Smith and co.), it was certainly a memorable one which is thankfully captured here in The Fall's inimitable way!
