|Released in the Spring of 1995, Melon was the first ever
"Fan Club" disc done by U2. It was released with issue #21 of the subscription
only magazine, Propaganda. The CD itself was made up of various remixes
of tracks released throughout the 90s. Some of these remixes had been released
before, where as others such as the Stay (Underdog Mix) were previously
unheard. It quickly became a much sought out CD among U2 fans.
The Melon CD has been bootlegged by those realizing that there was money
to be made in the limited quantities in which the CD was pressed.
At first it was easy to tell these fakes, as they often appeared in a jewel
case, where as the original CD was available in a card sleeve only.
However, even copies of the card sleeve have been bootlegged in recent
The Melon CD also lead to a bunch of other "Bootlegs". These bootlegs
are commonly referred to as "Fruitlegs". These CDs are all unofficial
compilations of remixes under different fruit titles, "Pineapple", "Mango",
etc. These were all labelled as being for Fan Club Use only even
though they DID NOT come from the fan club or were not approved by U2.
2000 saw the release of a second Fan Club Only CD - Hasta La Vista Baby.
This too was shipped to subscribers of Propaganda Magazine, and again was
released in a card sleeve.
