Background Information

In early 2013, the album “Get Up! Stand Up! Highlights from the Human Rights Concerts 1986-1998” was released in the UK and Europe. On the CD release were three songs taken from U2’s appearance at a concert benefiting Amnesty International, held June 15, 1986 in East Rutherford, NJ. The album featured “MLK” and “Pride” tracked together as one song. It also featured “Sunday Bloody Sunday”. The CD featured a selection of tracks from other artists, not only from this 1986 concert, but from a number of other concerts held at various times for Amnesty International. At the same time, Eagle Rock also issued a single disc DVD of some of the same material found on the CD. At the time of the release, there was no information given that there was further release plans for this material.

However, in the Fall of 2013, came a number of other releases under the name “¬°Released! The Human Rights Concerts”. That Fall release would re-release the same tracks as “Get Up! Stand Up!” as well as a number of additional U2 tracks across a number of formats.
