LINER NOTES
For U2, the period from May 1984 to May 1985 was an extraordinary one. In that time they recorded and released The Unforgettable Fire and undertook a world tour that took them onto a new plane as perhaps the world's top act. In Bono's own phrase, having climbed to the top of one mountain, they went to find another. Here in songs and images is the story of that singular ascent. 

In this unique compilation you'll see and hear what it is that has made The Unforgettable Fire unforgettable, from the extraordinary visual images of Pride (In the Name of Love) and the Unforgettable Fire single to the documentary style of A Sort of homecoming and Bad - here released in video form for the first time. Here too, you'll see the special half-hour documentary of the actual making of the album, shot on location at Slane Castle and Windmill Lane Studios. The Unforgettable Fire, tour and album is a memorable chapter in the U2 story. The images on this video package chronicle it faithfully. 

HiFi Sound. Not Rated. 51 minutes.

OTHER NOTES
This video is a collection of promotional videos from The Unforgettable Fire album.  Also included is a video documentary featuring the recording of that album at Slane Castle and in the studio.

In 2002, U2 fans got a treat with the release of U2 Go Home: Live at Slane Castle on DVD.  That DVD featured an added bonus, which was the documentary originally  presented in this collection.
