U2 - Keeping the Faith
(Spacematic 8-52501 Swz-8? EX 300:-)

Through a combination of zealous righteousness and post-punk experimentalism, U2 became one of the most popular rock & roll bands in the world -- equally known for their sweeping sound as for their grandiose statements about politics and religion.

Recorded during the "Unforgettable Fire Tour" in Stockholm on January 25, 1985. This show features an epic performance of "40"; it clocks in at just under 15 minutes long.
U2 - The Joshua Tree
(Island U26P Ita-?? EX 300:-)

Having nearly exhausted their capacity for pop-song politics on WAR and THE UNFORGETTABLE FIRE, U2 turned toward themes of personal identity and complex relationships on THE JOSHUA TREE.

Not that the group was willing to come down off the barricades entirely: "Mothers of the Disappeared" and "Bullet the Blue Sky" turned a jaundiced eye toward Central America and the United States's role there. But the predominant mood here is one of self-discovery and the hunger for something more on tracks like the pulsating "Where the Streets Have No Name" and the gospel-ish "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For". The album's masterstroke, however, is "With or Without You", a nasty love song dressed up as an ode of devotion and care.

Unofficial Picture Disc; claims to be made in Mexico, but is actually an Italian pressing.
