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.
