This bootleg pertains to be a copy of a likewise named cd released on Island Records. Such a cd was, however, never released from Island Records. The only cd coming close is "Lemon - Remixes For Propaganda" which was forwarded to members of the U2 fanclub together with the U2 magazine "Propaganda" as a X-mas present in 1995. The bootleg series contains at least the following albums: Melon, More Melon, Kiwi I, Kiwi II, Banana, Mango, Grapes, Pineapple, Papaya, Orange, Strawberry, and Peach. None of these were released by the Propaganda fan club or any other company associated with U2.

Stylewise this album is very faithfull to the Lemon sound, but with a somewhat different track selection and alternative remixes. Mysterious Ways, Lemon (a 12 minutes mix), Even Better Than The Real Thing, and Salome are the highlights here and they have never failed me setting a crowd dancing. I guess most crowds are just still surprised to hear U2 handled by Oakenfold's Perfecto crew.

Still, if you cannot have both I'd choose Lemon over the More Melon cd.
