In late 2002 Bono worked with Joe Strummer of the Clash and David A. Stewart on a song titled after Nelson Mandela's Prision Number '46664'.  This song was to be used to bring attention to the devestation that AIDS and HIV was creating in Africa.  Joe Strummer, however, passed away before the completion of the song and it was left up to Bono and David Stewart to finish the song. Originally planned for early 2003, a concert was planned in South Africa to launch the 46664 campaign.  The concert was pushed back and rescheduled for November 29th, 2003 to coincide with World AIDS day.  The concert was streamed live on the internet, and was later televised around the world.

This promotional set was made up of three CDRs packaged in cardboard sleeves.  The three cardboard sleeves were each housed in a larger slipcase packaging all three CDRs together.  In some cases the CDRs were released without the outer sleeve and appear to be three separate promotional items, but they are all part of this set.

  • There are two other parts to this CD which are sold separately.  These are Part II: Long Road to Freedom and Part III: Amandla
  • Bono and the Edge have worked with David A Stewart on the soundtrack for Cookie's Fortune.
  • David A Stewart's multimedia web project "Sly-Fy" featured clips of Bono and the Edge, but there was no inclusion of these U2 clips on the accompanying recording.
  • David A Stewart is thanked for early inspiration on the song "Walk On" on the All That You Can't Leave Behind album.
  • David A Stewart performed "Walk On" with U2 for the September 11 tribute, which was released as the album America: A Tribute to Heroes.
  • David A Stewart also recorded "46664" in studio with Bono.  This song to date has only been released on the internet and by phone.  There has not been a commercial release.

Further Information:
A gorgeous set of promo CDs, this packaging made for a nice release of all three CDs, and I really would have liked to have seen a commercial set for sale of all three.  The disappointment with this set is the CDRs themselves in this set.
