U2 LIVE UNDER A BLOOD RED SKY UNCENSORED 12" Mini-LP VINYL

When U2 first released Under a Blood Red Sky, the original version of "The Electric Co." that was on the album included a 27-second snippet of Bono singing Sondheim's "Send In The Clowns." The band failed to get permission and pay the appropriate licensing and royalty fees to include Sondheim's tune on the album. When Sondheim objected, U2 agreed to pay a $50,000 (US) penalty for the unauthorized use and to press all future releases with a new version that did not include the 27-seconds of "Send In The Clowns."

So the original version of the album has the full "Electric. Co." running 5:17 and the edited version of the album has the song ending at 4:51. Your best bet for finding the original release with the unedited version of "Electric Co." is to track down a vinyl copy of the album. The original pressing will say 5:18, while future pressings on vinyl were corrected to say 4:51.

U2: A Legendary Irish Rock Band Known for Their Music, Activism, and Unforgettable Live Performances.

U2 Band Description:

U2 is an Irish rock band that has been active since 1976. The band members include Bono (vocals and guitar), The Edge (guitar, keyboards, and backing vocals), Adam Clayton (bass guitar), and Larry Mullen Jr. (drums and percussion). U2 has released 14 studio albums and has sold over 150 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling music artists of all time. The band is also known for their live performances, which are characterized by their grandiose stage setups and Bono's passionate delivery.

U2's early sound was heavily influenced by punk and post-punk, but they soon developed a distinctive sound that combined elements of rock, pop, and alternative music. Their first album, "Boy," was released in 1980 and included the hit single "I Will Follow." Their follow-up album, "October," was released in 1981 and featured more spiritual and political themes, which would become a recurring theme in their music.

In 1983, U2 released their breakthrough album, "War," which included the hit singles "New Year's Day" and "Sunday Bloody Sunday." The album was inspired by the band's experiences touring in war-torn countries and included themes of conflict and social justice. U2 continued to explore political themes on their next album, "The Unforgettable Fire," which was produced by Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois.

U2's most successful album, "The Joshua Tree," was released in 1987. The album included hit singles such as "With or Without You," "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," and "Where the Streets Have No Name." The album was a departure from U2's previous sound, with a more mature and introspective tone. The album's themes included American culture, spirituality, and social justice.

In the 1990s, U2 experimented with different sounds and styles, including dance and electronic music. Their album "Achtung Baby" was released in 1991 and included the hit singles "One" and "Mysterious Ways." The album was a critical and commercial success and established U2 as a band that could successfully adapt to changing musical trends.

U2 continued to explore new sounds on their subsequent albums, including "Zooropa" (1993) and "Pop" (1997). These albums included electronic and dance influences and were met with mixed reviews from critics and fans. However, U2's next album, "All That You Can't Leave Behind" (2000), marked a return to their classic sound. The album included the hit singles "Beautiful Day" and "Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of."

U2's most recent album, "Songs of Experience" (2017), includes themes of personal and societal challenges. The album includes the hit single "You're the Best Thing About Me" and features collaborations with producers such as Ryan Tedder, Jacknife Lee, and Steve Lillywhite. Throughout their career, U2 has been known for their activism and philanthropy. The band has been involved in a number of charitable causes, including poverty reduction, AIDS research, and human rights. Bono, in particular, has been a vocal advocate for global development and has been involved in a number of initiatives to promote social justice.

In addition to their music and activism, U2 is also known for their live performances. The band's concerts are renowned for their elaborate stage setups and Bono's passionate delivery. U2 has won numerous awards for their live performances, including 22 Grammy Awards.
