Rare 1980 U2 Live Recording Set for Official Release

U2 1

Don’t get your hopes up too much, punters….

By Barbi Martinez, Blurt Intern

U2 fans – or more specifically, members of U2 fanclub U2.com – are salivating over the imminent release of Another Time Another Place, a limited edition double 10″ record that will be sent out to subscribers soon. It’s described as “a rare live set from 1980, now digitally remastered and presented on double 10″ vinyl in bespoke gatefold sleeve. Recorded in the legendary Marquee Club in London, this rare live set comes from a period when the band were taking early songs like The Electric Co, I Will Follow and Out of Control on the road across Ireland and the UK.”

Of course, you have to be a member of the fanclub to get the record… sigh. Is it too late for me to join?
