This guide is intended to provide anyone who is interested in bootlegs with reliable information on the quality and content of any recording they may be thinking of buying or trading. Bootlegged material varies immensely in quality, and through this guide, we hope to help each other avoid getting ripped off. We do NOT sell these CDs. We do NOT distribute them, or help anyone to buy them. We are not encouraging anyone to buy them, but rather, if you ARE going to buy them, this guide should help you decide which bootlegs are good and which should be avoided. For further information, please read "The Legality of Bootlegs". Finally, we do NOT want this guide being used by or in conjunction with any commercial enterprise, whether for profit or otherwise. Online and mail-order companies are NOT authorized to use ANY information in this COPYRIGHTED guide. We want our position on these matters clear.

(A special „Thank You“ to Stephanie Glassl for translating chapters one and two)

At the beginning of 1992, Mark Taylor, together with a couple of people from the U2 mailing list "Wire" (to be found on the Internet at http://www.wildheart.org/archives/wire) started to gather information about U2 bootleg CDs and put together a guide for all interested U2 fans and potential bootleg buyers. This guide had been given the name "Out Of Control - A Guide To U2 Bootleg Compact Discs" and was made available for free download on the Internet as a regularly updated text file. It included details about lots of U2 bootleg CDs in alphabetical order. In March 1993, Mark Taylor published "Out Of Control" as a book including reviews of 72 bootleg CDs plus an overview of all U2 tourdates as well as a copy of the "Achtung Baby Liner Notes" on 120 pages.

In September 1993, J. Gareth Williams took over the care and development of "Out Of Control". At the beginning of 1995, Mark Taylor contacted J. Gareth Williams to tell him that he intended to publish a new edition of his book. He asked for the Internet version of "Out Of Control" to be renamed in order to avoid mistakes and confusion. J. Gareth Williams fulfilled his request and thought of a new name together with Mike Gentile. Finally, "For Love Or Money ? - A Guide To U2 Bootleg CDs" (shortly called FLOM) caught on, a line from "Desire" very well describing the general problems of bootlegs.

When Mike Gentile took over the care and development of "For Love Or Money ?" in April 1995, he started to develop a chronologically sorted version besides the continued and regularly updated alphabetical version. Since then, two different versions of "For Love Or Money ?" are published at a time, an alphabetically sorted and a chronologically sorted one. Thus it was possible to make sure that almost everyone who is interested in bootlegs can obtain the version that suits him best. Both versions are one hundred percent identical, there is no difference but the sequence.

In order to support the further development of the text versions of "For Love Or Money ?", in April 1995, Rob Reck, a good friend of Mike Gentile, started a conversion of "For Love Or Money ?" into “HTML” format. Thus, it was possible to recall "For Love Or Money ?" online at any time without having to look through the full text-versions. Since then, the "For Love Or Money ?" website has seen lots of redesigning, so today, people who are interested in U2 bootlegs can visit the site at http://www.u2-flom.com and http://www.u2-flom.de. Here it is possible to recall reviews of every bootleg CD that is also available in the text versions of "For Love Or Money ?". Basically, the website contains the same information as do the text versions, except for the cover illustrations that are, if existant, integrated in the website. The website is one hundred percent the same as the text versions. If you happen to own bootleg CDs whose covers cannot be found on the "For Love And Money ?" website, please scan those covers, save them as ".jpg" files and send them to us, so they can be added immediately. The address where to send those pictures to can be found at the beginning of this text.

In future, the updated versions of "For Love Or Money ?" can be found at two different addresses on the Internet. All in all, there are four different files available for download:

flomalph.txt - the updated alphabetical version, text file
flomalph.zip - the updated alphabetical version, packed zip file
flomchro.txt - the updated chronological version, text file
flomchro.zip - the updated chronological version, packed zip file

Furthermore, there will be an alphabetically sorted as well as a chronologically sorted version of "For Love Or Money ?". But it is not clear yet how the increasing number of circulating CD-R bootlegs can be included in "For Love Or Money ?" in a useful way. CD-R stands for "Compact Disc Recordable". These are one-off recordable CD media that can usually be played by CD-ROM players as well as by audio-CD-players. "Normal" CDs and CD-ROMs are pressed from existing models, CD-Rs are burnt with a laser. This can be done with professional CD copying stations as well as with CD burners for the PC at home.

CD-Rs differ from pressed CDs in their colour (they are usually gold, green or blue as opposed to pressed CDs) as well as in the treatment they require. CD-Rs are much more sensitive as far as dirt, scratches, sunlight and high temperatures are concerned, and thus require more care than "normal" CDs. They also have a shorter life than pressed CDs, but as the possible life of up to one hundred years or more is all theory up to now, it is not possible to make any more precise statements.

During the last couple of years, the market for CD-Rs has increased explosively due to the massive drop in prices both for CD writers (starting from $ 120 US) and for the media required (between $ 1 US and $ 2 US). Today, increasingly bigger bootleg labels use the CD-R technology to publish their titles in editions of about 200, 500 or even 1.000 copies, and an increasing number of private persons publish their very own bootleg CD-Rs in editions of 5, 10 or 50 copies. A lot of those bootlegs are sold with professionally designed and printed covers and inlets.

There is no doubt that CD-Rs and in future DVD-Rs (one or several times recordable improved CDs with a capacity of 200 minutes and more) will play an important part in the whole area of bootlegs and will dominate the whole area sooner or later. Thus, since 1997, "For Love Or Money ?" features a growing number of reviews of CD-R bootlegs that have actually been published in bigger editions and have found wide distribution. I agree with my predecessor Mark Gentile in saying that bootleg CD-Rs will sooner or later replace the classic bootleg CD and will supersede the tape as a medium of swapping. How this development will establish itself in "For Love Or Money ?" cannot be foreseen at the moment. But yet it is certain that it would not make sense for "For Love Or Money ?" to list each and every show somewhere pressed on CD-R that is maybe owned by five to ten people. One possibility to integrate these CD-Rs in "For Love Or Money ?" in a permanent and reasonable way would be to complete the alphabetical and chronological versions of "For Love Or Money ?" that only feature "real bootlegs" by adding a third chronologically sorted version which contains all CD-Rs bootlegs in circulation. This third version of "For Love Or Money ?" would not contain complete bootleg reviews with label, catalogue number etc. but would concentrate only on which recordings exist of what show and which are worth looking for and which are to be best avoided.

Another problem of CD-R bootlegs is the loss of quality that emerges from copying CDs and CD-Rs. It is a widely spread delusion that copies of CD or CD-R are one hundred percent the same as the original. Even a second generation copy of the original (a CD has been copied on CD-R and from this copy another CD-R copy has been made) can bring a clear loss of quality with it, if software and hardware are not coordinated in the best possible way or if there has been done something wrong in copying.

In the future, this problem will become even more crucial. With the number of circulating CD-Rs increasing and pressed CDs becoming rare, it is even more important that the descriptions of quality in "For Love Or Money ?" are as exact as possible. The newly introduced sound quality ratings by Mike Gentile in the August 1998 versions of "For Love Or Money ?" (Overall Sound, Crispness, Alive, Ambience, Performance, Artificial) will therefore be continued in future versions of "For Love Or Money ?". Even in the now published October 1999 versions, those categories have been completed with numerous bootleg reviews. Nevertheless, your help is absolutely essential to continue the integration of these new quality ratings and to put it on a broad basis. If you happen to own bootleg CDs that have not yet been rated according to the new quality standards, or should you not agree with the ratings you find in "For Love Or Money ?", please tell us your ratings. You can do this per e-mail (see the address on top of this text) or by surfing on the homepage (www.u2-flom.de or www.u2-flom.com).

If you look for detailed information on CD-Rs, visit the outstanding CD-R FAQ at http://www.fadden.com/cdrfaq/. If you want to be informed about all recent developments concerning bootleg CD and bootleg CD-R, you can subscribe to the magazine "Live ! Music Review" which is published every two months by Bill Glahn. You can find more information about "Live ! Music Review" on the Internet at http://sunflower.singnet.com.sg/~singbigo/billy.html.

Since the last version of "For Love Or Money ?" in August 1998, more than a year has passed. In the recent version of October 1999, 70 bootleg reviews have been extended and/or corrected, and 30 bootleg reviews have been newly included. The corrected reviews are almost exclusively detailed extensions of the "Comments". You will find out exactly which bootleg reviews have been added and/or corrected in the fourth section under "Changed Reviews This Edition" and which ones are newly introduced in the fifth section under "New Reviews This Edition". Both sections list all changes since the August 1998 version of "For Love Or Money ?".

Besides, in the October 1999 version of "For Love Or Money ?", all (!) bootleg reviews have been extended by the categories "Complete Show", "Format" and "Released" (that have been introduced in the August 1998 version). Moreover, superfluous blank spaces and break marks have been eliminated from the whole text, so now it is much easier to format "For Love Or Money ?" for a printout according to your own preferences. The e-mail-addresses of the people who sent in the reviews have been left out in the particular bootleg reviews. This had become necessary because e-mail-addresses are nearly changed daily and it is almost impossible to update each and every change in every review in "For Love Or Money ?". But of course, the names of the reviewers are mentioned in the particular bootleg reviews, and the recent e-mail-addresses of the reviewers and supporters can still be found in the "Thank You All Very Much ..." section at the end of this text.

All reviews in this October 1999 version of "For Love Or Money ?" meet the new rating standards introduced in the December 1997 and August 1998 versions of "For Love Or Money ?". For every bootleg, you can find the following information as far as it is known: Title, Manufacturer, Catalog Number, Matrix Number, Barcode Number, Complete Show, Format, Released, Timings, Contributor, Track Listing, Source, Sound Quality, Comments and Repressing. You can find further information to the different parts of the bootleg reviews in the sixth section under "Format Of Bootleg Reviews". Already since the December 1997 version of "For Love Or Money ?", all notes below "Source" correspond to the information from the outstanding book "U2 Live: A Concert Documentary" by Pimm Jal de la Parra. Every review contains the complete written out date of the show in the format month/day/year (in some European countries, the date is normally stated in the format day/month/year). The location of the concert is listed with country (respectable with state or province), city and precise name of the location, as far as these details are known.

In this version of "For Love Or Money ?", you can also find a couple of "Grey Area" CDs. These are no bootleg CDs but interview CDs, "official" radio shows, karaoke CDs and similar publications. Up to now, only interview CDs and one karaoke CD have made their way into "For Love Or Money ?", because there is a lack of information concerning the other publications and so it makes no sense to include them in "For Love Or Money ?". If anyone happens to have further information about these "Grey Area" CDs it would be nice if you sent it to us to make sure it can be included in future versions of "For Love Or Money ?". Please use the system "Format Of Bootleg Reviews" as described in the sixth section. Try to describe the interview as well as can be: When was it done, who did it, which questions were posed, what was the topic. You can send a review of any CD which fits into that section but please make sure to use the standard format for this review.

After the completion of the October 1999 versions of "For Love Or Money ?", the next aim is to put the website back online as fast as possible after a complete restructuring and new design complete with all individual reviews. I hope that this will happen in November 1999 at the latest.

My second aim is to update "For Love Or Money ?" at least twice a year in the future. The next update is therefore planned for April 2000. The next versions of "For Love Or Money ?" will focus on the correction of numerous mistakes in already existing bootleg CD reviews. This especially concerns the numerous compilations of different live recordings (i.e. "Acoustic TV" or "Covering Them") where all dates to the featured songs have finally been completed. And also the box-sets need some completion and correction.

Individual reviews in the "Comments" sections are very important and a focus of all future "For Love Or Money ?" versions. So if you happen to own a bootleg CD where you can complete the existing "Comments", you would do a big favour to all U2 fans if you contributed a review to "For Love Or Money ?" concerning this CD. Your completions and/or extensions will be added to the existing "Comments" and will be published in the next version of "For Love Or Money ?". So if you have always wanted to support "For Love Or Money ?" but never knew what to do, this is your chance to help me and all readers of "For Love Or Money ?"!

Already since the December 1997 version of "For Love Or Money ?", it has been considered to create a data base in the "MS access" format containing all U2 bootleg CDs. After a series of tests, this data base would then be made available for online search. Unfortunately, the work such a data base requires and the technical problems that go hand in hand with it appear to be more extensive as initially expected. Despite the outstanding work of Peter Hanning in programming the data base, an online publication of a "For Love Or Money ?" data base is not in sight in the near future. All suggestions how such a project can be realised are very welcome and will be taken very seriously!

Since the August 1998 version of "For Love Or Money ?", the idea came up to make "For Love Or Money ?" available for download in the Adobe "Acrobat" format complete with coloured pictures of all covers. But also this idea will still take some time before it can be realised. And also here, impulses and suggestions are very welcome!

This October 1999 version of "For Love Or Money ?" features about 650 reviews of U2 bootleg CDs and bootleg CD-Rs. Thanks to all of you who sent us reviews, corrections and/or any other kind of information (see the ninth section "Thank You All Very Much ..."). Please keep sending in! The address where to send your reviews to can be found at the end of this file. A very special thanks goes to Mike Gentile and Bob Reck, who, for the last four and a half years, have put very much time into "For Love Or Money ?", and who made "For Love Or Money ?" what it is today.

2. The Legality of Bootlegs - PLEASE READ!
*****************************************

In 1969, the first bootleg in rock music came out. It was a Bob Dylan bootleg called "Great White Wonder" - a simple LP in black vinyl with blank white labels and a neutral white cover, onto which "GWW" was printed in big letters. Nowadays, in the whole area of sound carrier piracy, the term "bootleg" is being used by record companies and organisations such as RIAA and GEMA to describe all non-licensed publications without making any distinction between the different types "counterfeit", "pirate" and "bootleg" in the true sense.

Counterfeits are faithful copies of official sound carriers, but neither does there exist any authorization to produce them, nor are the due taxes paid to the owner of the copyright. Pirates are also copies of officially released material, but here the packaging is not faithfully copied. In this area, compilations of different official publications can be found that are being released as a new complilation with a new cover. Bootlegs feature recordings of live concerts and/or unpublished studio recordings (like demos or outtakes), so as opposed to counterfeits and pirates, they do not contain officially released material. Bootlegs are recordings that have not been licensed by the record company, the artist or any other organisation.

Whereas counterfeits and pirates are undoubtedly illegal and detrimental to the artists and record companies, bootlegs cannot in any case be included in this category. As the editions of bootlegs are normally infinitesimal (in most cases less than 500 or 1000 copies), they cannot be seen as a rival product to the record company's publications that could reduce the sales of official sound carriers. Fans and collectors buy bootlegs because they want to hear their band playing live, and normally they already own all official CDs and CD-singles and only complete their collection with bootlegs. Thus, for the fan, bootlegs are supposed to keep special moments in the history of one's band to be able to remind oneself time and again of the special atmosphere at a concert for instance.

But these arguments do not change the fact that bootleg CDs are basically illegal and trading with bootleg CDs is prohibited almost world wide. Bootleg trading can have serious legal consequences and high financial demands for damages of the concerned bands or record companies. And you should also keep in mind that the band does not earn a single penny with the sale of bootlegs. Only manufacturers and traders net a profit, most of the time without adequately returning the favour.

It is well-known that Bono as well as Adam and Paul McGuinness have more than once said in public that they do not have a problem with the swapping of recordings of U2 concerts as long as it is free and not businesslike and nobody makes money with it. No matter if you rate bootlegs positive or negative, moral or immoral, at the end of the day every fan has to decide for himself whether or not he is willing to spend money for an illegal sound carrier.

Finally, another remark: Compilations of old singles, remixes or b-side tracks as well as selfmade "Best Of" albums are a form of pirates and should therefore be disapproved. Not only are they detrimental to the record company but also to the band itself. The only ones deriving benefit from these products are the greedy manufacturers themselves. Even if it is very practical to have all old singles on one CD, there are ways and means to obtain these songs in another way. All CDs of this kind that can be found in "For Love Or Money ?" have only been added for the sake of completeness. One can only be advised against the purchase of such CDs.

Anyone who wants more information about the history and development of bootlegs
can be referred to two books. Besides the bootleg bible "Hot Wacks" whose last main book "The Last Wacks" was published in 1992 and is moreover updated every year, the book "The Great White Wonders - A History Of Rock Bootlegs" by Clinton Heylin can be recommended. It tells the whole history and development of this market in every detail on over 400 pages.

Another legal remark at the end - please read carefully:

I ACCEPT NO RESPONSIBILITY WHATSOEVER FOR ANY HORRIBLE FATE THAT MAY BEFALL YOU BY ACTING ON THE INFORMATION IN THIS LIST.

This includes (but is not limited to):

A) any legal action taken against you as a result of you being involved in an illegal business, and
B) any bad purchases you make based on this list. I try to make sure that what is written is factually correct and honestly describes the CDs in question; but many of these discs I've never even HEARD, so trust the reviews of others.

6. Format Of Bootleg Reviews
*****************************************

CD TITLES:
In most cases, this is obvious. In those instances where it is not, I have chosen what I felt is the most obvious possibility. Titles appear in all capital letters and are listed in alphabetical order (I will be using my own copy of the "well-known" bootleg ZOO EUROPA from „Kiss The Stone“ Records as an example).

MANUFACTURER:
Some bootleg labels have been around for years, others exist for a single CD. Sometimes more than one manufacturer uses the same label name. Some specialize in quality and original material, others in reprints. The entry "Unknown Manufacturer" is used when no label is identified (Example: The manufacturer for ZOO EUROPA is „Kiss The Stone“ Records).

CATALOG NUMBERS:
These are (usually very simple) numbers identifying the particular bootleg CD. It is usually printed on the spine of a disc, painted on the disc itself, or found somewhere in the booklet or back cover of the CD (Example: The catalog number for ZOO EUROPA is „KTS197/98“. This can be found on the spine of the CD and is painted on the CDs themselves).

MATRIX NUMBERS:
These are the numbers that are burned into the CD itself. These matrix numbers are the hardest of all to locate. In order to locate the matrix number for any CD, simply flip the CD itself over (so that the shiny part is face up and you can see yourself if you look at it), hold it under a light and read the number that you see appearing near the center of the CD. It should be on the inner-most ring close to the clear part, near the center hole. As I said, it is burned into the CD itself. Also, some bootlegs have matrix numbers that have been manually „scratched out“, like with a pin or needle of some sort (Example: The matrix numbers ZOO EUROPA are as follows: Disc 1 reads „PILZ CD KTS 197 [ K 33277 C ]“ , and for Disc 2 it reads „PILZ CD KTS 198 [ K 33272 A ]“). Many bootlegs have been reprinted, sometimes in altered form. The matrix numbers should make it clear which pressing I'm referring to.

BARCODE NUMBER (UPC symbol):
These are simple to locate. Either a bootleg CD has one or it doesn't. In order to find out, the most likely place to look is the back CD cover. It is the code, much like any item in a food supermarket or a legitimate CD, which is read by a laser scanner attached to the cash register or whatever. It is in a small box, with vertical lines and has numbers printed underneath. These numbers are the barcode. This is the info I need (Example: The barcode for ZOO EUROPA reads „8 013780 011977“. It is printed on the back CD cover, in a little yellow box with black lines.)

COMPLETE SHOW:
This field only pertains to live concert recordings. If the complete show can be found on the disc(s), then a „Yes“ will appear in the field. If not, a „No“ will appear in the field. Otherwise, a „NA“ will appear in the field (if this is not a live concert recording). If you are not sure, just place an „Unknown“ in this field. An excellent reference to help determine this is the book „U2 Live: A Concert Documentary“ by Pimm Jal de la Parra (Example: Since ZOO EUROPA contains the COMPLETE SHOW, a "Yes" appears here).

FORMAT:
If the disc is a „regular“ (silver) compact disc, a „CD“ will appear here. If the disc is a (gold/blue/green) compact disc recordable, a „CD-R“ will appear here. In the future, three relatively new formats, „CD-RW“ (compact disc rewritable), „DVD“ (digital versatile disc), and finally "DVD-R" (digital versatile disc recordable) might also appear in this field. For now, only „CD“ and „CD-R“ will appear here. Also, place the number of discs before the „CD“ or „CD-R“ (Example: The format for ZOO EUROPA is „2CD“, since there are two compact discs and it is a regular CD bootleg).

RELEASED:
This is simply the year that the bootleg was released (if known) (Example: The year that ZOO EUROPA was released is 1993).

TIMINGS:
The total running time for each disc appears in parenthesis (Example: The timings for ZOO EUROPA are (65:57) for Disc 1 and (54:04) for Disc 2).

CONTRIBUTOR(s):
Wherever possible, I've tried to include the name of the contributor(s) who sent in the review. Some of the reviews without name are those that were in Mark Taylor's original list, but most are reviewed by me (Example: The contributor(s) for the review of ZOO EUROPA are: Frederic Elsner , J and Jason Fusco).

TRACK LISTINGS:
Song titles are listed in the order in which they are heard on the CD. If there is a discrepancy between what is heard and what is listed on the cover, it is noted under the comments section (Example: See below for the track listing for ZOO EUROPA).

SOURCE:
This is the date, location and venue (in that order) for a live recording. For the bootlegs that are not of a live nature (b-sides, studio demos, interviews, remixes, etc) the source would be as accurate a description (of the origin) as possible. All bootlegs are of a live performance unless otherwise stated (Example: The source for ZOO EUROPA is „August 28, 1993. Dublin, Ireland. Royal Dublin Society Showgrounds“).

SOUND QUALITY:
This is in terms of bootleg quality, not commercial quality. The rating scale is as follows: excellent, very good, good, fair and poor. A CD rated poor to fair is difficult or unpleasant to listen to. The origin of the recording is also specified as either a soundboard (direct line feed from the mixing board), or as an audience member made recording or as a broadcast recording which generally encompasses FM radio and television broadcasts (Example: The sound quality of ZOO EUROPA is excellent soundboard broadcast).

SOUND AND PERFORMANCE RATINGS (mostly pertains to live bootlegs):

OVERALL SOUND (So what would you give it on a 1-to-10 scale overall ?): This applies to the main live portion of the bootleg in question. If a bootleg manufacturer includes a few bad bonus tracks, that will not detract from the overall sound rating. Bonus tracks need not be rated. This is a numerical rating, including one decimal point. This rating is based on a „1-to-10“ scale with „1“ being the lowest (worst) and „10“ being the highest (best). Sample input values for ratings are as follows: „8.1“, „5.0“, „10“, „7.5“, „9.9“ etc (Example: The overall sound rating for ZOO EUROPA is a „9.9“).

CRISPNESS (How "crystal clear" is the sound ?): This applies to the main live portion of the bootleg in question. If a bootleg manufacturer includes a few bad bonus tracks, that will not detract from the crispness rating. Bonus tracks need not be rated. This is a numerical rating, including one decimal point. This rating is based on a „1-to-10“ scale with „1“ being the lowest (worst) and „10“ being the highest (best). Sample input values for ratings are as follows: „8.1“, „5.0“, „10“, „7.5“, „9.9“, etc (Example: The crispness rating for ZOO EUROPA is a „7.0“. JOSHUA TREE ON FIRE would receive a „10.0“ for super crisp and NEW HORIZON would receive a „3.5“ super dull).

ALIVE (Does the bootleg capture the feeling of actually being there ?): This applies to the main live portion of the bootleg in question. If a bootleg manufacturer includes a few bad bonus tracks, that will not detract from the alive rating. Bonus tracks need not be rated. This is a numerical rating, including one decimal point. Excellent audience bootlegs have an edge here. Flat-sounding broadcasts would receive low rating. This rating is based on a „1-to-10“ scale with „1“ being the lowest (worst) and „10“ being the highest (best). Sample input values for ratings are as follows: „8.1“, „5.0“, „10“, „7.5“, „9.9“, etc (Example: The alive rating for ZOO EUROPA is an „9.0“).

AMBIENCE (What kind of atmosphere or mood was present during the show ?): This applies to the main live portion of the bootleg in question. If a bootleg manufacturer includes a few bad bonus tracks, that will not detract from the ambiance rating. Bonus tracks need not be rated. This is a numerical rating, including one decimal point. This rating is based on a „1-to-10“ scale with „1“ being the lowest (worst) and „10“ being the highest (best). Sample input values for ratings are as follows: „8.1“, „5.0“, „10“, „7.5“, „9.9“, etc (Example: The ambiance rating for ZOO EUROPA is a „9.5“).

PERFORMANCE (How good did the band perform that night ?): This applies to the main live portion of the bootleg in question. If a bootleg manufacturer includes a few bad bonus tracks, that will not detract from the AMBIANCE rating. Bonus tracks need not be rated. This is a numerical rating, including one decimal point. This rating is based on a „1-to-10“ scale with „1“ being the lowest (worst) and „10“ being the highest (best). Sample input values for ratings are as follows: „8.1“, „5.0“, „10“, „7.5“, „9.9“, etc (Example: The performance rating for ZOO EUROPA is a „10.0“).

ARTIFICIAL (How „fake“ is the sound quality ?): This is a qualitative rating. If there is some digital manipulation of the sound, or something „just doesn't seem quite right“ it would show up here. The only ratings here are „Yes“, „Somewhat“, or „No“. (Example: The artifical rating for ZOO EUROPA is „No").

COMMENTS:
This is anything of note that hasn't all ready been covered by one of the above categories, as well as anything especially good or bad about the CD pressing or U2's performance. Special guest appearances are also listed here (Example: See below for the comments for ZOO EUROPA).

REPRESSING(S):
Do not worry about the repressings info. I will determine which bootlegs are repressed and supply this info in this section, if it is deemed necessary. All of the individual reviews in this guide are assumed to be the original pressings on each particular label (if known) and after each original pressing will appear the sentence: „This is the original pressing on this label.“ There are a few bootlegs in this guide which have unknown manufacturers, such as MELON REMIXES FOR PROPAGANDA. Since there is no way to determine which is the original pressing and which are the repressings for some of these bootlegs, they will appear multiple times.

In a few cases, Mike Gentile (former editor of „For Love Or Money“) and me made a couple of changes to other peoples' reviews, if we felt sure that there were errors in the information. In cases where I disagreed or where I had anything else to say about the recording, we have sometimes added our comments in [brackets] afterward. This is not to undermine what other people have written, it is simply to provide some kind of standard to compare sound quality amongst boots reviewed by different people. In most cases, I have tried my best to leave the original text of the review intact.

Comments:
Even better than the official live albums ! Recorded live from the mixing desk, it's the best bootleg (including HAPPY NEW YEAR) I've ever heard. The sound is more than perfect ! The package has superb photos. Some errors occur on the titles, such as „Bullet“ for „Bullet The Blue Sky“ and „Help Me“ for The Beatles' „Help“. The version of „Stay (Faraway, So Close !)“ is very very good (in my opinion) and „Numb“ is played like the Industrial Mix on the 3-track video cassette single for „Numb“. The August 28, 1993 Dublin bootleg has long been considered perhaps the greatest bootleg ever, and most of the reviewers say ZOO EUROPA is the best. The ending of „Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World“ has Bono saying simply „I Will“ instead of the „Dublin City says I will“ on other bootlegs such as Live Storm's ZOOROPA `93 - RDS , DUBLIN 1993. Obviously, KTS has found a way to edit it out so it misses a beat or the ending seems a little bit abrupt. The long wait while the band is walking to the b-stage after this song and to „Angel Of Harlem“ is edited too, because it seems that the two songs were played right after the other (which they were not). This bootleg is also edited from „Pride (In The Name Of Love)“ to „Desire“. The Zoo Confessions and the TV images and interference right before „Desire“ is edited (as compared to the unedited ZOOROPA `93). So all you hear is the crowd after from „Pride (In The Name Of Love)“ and then „Desire“ kicks straight in. After „Cant Help Falling In Love“, Bono says goodnight and the bootleg fades out. In other pressings such as ZOOROPA `93, you can still hear the Elvis version of the song from the PA while Bono says „Elvis is still in the building“, and then it fades out. From the looks of it, this CD has obviously been remastered as seen from the edits which have actually been quite professionally done (that is why no one has pointed this out, maybe because they never noticed it or that they only have one Dublin bootleg, thus no other basis of comparison. After all, who would be crazy enough to buy different pressings of the same show ?). Thus, this may be the best sounding in terms of sound quality among all the Dublin pressings. Taken from the worldwide broadcast, this is a great homecoming performance. The band have even incorporated a few „Zooropa“ songs here too. It's nicely edited and an enjoyable listen. Every bootleg should look and sound this good ! Again, they go through a large chink of „Achtung Baby“ material before going into „New Year's Day“. The fairly- new „Numb“ is played next. The acoustic set also features another new song, „Stay (Faraway So Close!)“, along with crowd-pleasers „Angel Of Harlem“ and „When Love Comes To Town“. „Satellite Of Love“ features a pre-recorded vocal of Lou Reed. „Bad“ opens the second disc and includes a snippet of Elton John's „Candle In The Wind“, and ends with a snippet of another new song, „The First Time“. A short version of The Beatles „Help“ launches into „Ultraviolet (Light My Way)“. „Desire“ includes Bono's Mac Phisto character's call to the United Nations, which is actually a pre-recorded bit from Adam. The show concludes with Elvis' „Can't Help Falling in Love“ with nice crowd participation. A nice release. It's also out on quite a few other labels under different titles. Collectors and even casual fans should enjoy it. The cover states „Live On Tour 1993“. This comes with a nice 12-page fold-out with lots of photos and a short "Professor Stone" essay. Both CDs are picture discs.
This is the original pressing on this label.

A) Regular Concert Recordings (Single Shows, And Multiple Pressings)

Each date below corresponds to a live concert recording which can be found on a single CD, double CD, or a multiple pressing of a single or double CD. Only complete or mostly complete concerts are listed, meaning that "bonus tracks" tacked on to the end of certain CDs are not individually listed in date order. This makes perfect sense, since the "bonus tracks" on certain bootlegs are difficult to nail down specific dates and so on. The "number" (on the left) below is actually a "date" in the format: (YY/MM/DD), the reason is as follows: IT MAKES SEARCHING FOR A PARTICULAR DATE RELATIVELY SIMPLE. As an example, use a word processor such as MS-Word or Word Perfect to "search" or "find" to find a specific "date" you are wondering about. (Example: Say, the Dublin broadcast on August 28, 1993. Simply type in '93/08/28', and it will take you right to that group of reviews). If, say you want to find out if there are any good bootlegs from a certain month and year, but you don't know a specific date, simply type in the year and month. (Example: You want to see if there are any good recordings of concerts from May, 1992. Simply use the "search or "find" feature on your word processor and type in '92/05/'. This will take you directly to the first of seven different dates for May of 1992). And finally, you can do the same for a specific year. (Example: You want to know about any available concerts from 1982. Simply "search" or "find" on '82/', and you will be taken directly to the first of three different dates available for 1982). This makes searching for a particular tour or date a snap and it will also save you a LOT of time in the long run. Under each date below is a list of every known U2 CD bootleg which contains a concert from that particular date. To repeat: Only complete or mostly complete concert recordings can be found in chronological order below. All other bootlegs can be found in the other sections of this guide.

Sound Quality:

(17, 19): Very good audience.

Comments:
Tracks 1-16 are incorrectly labeled as being from "December 1979". A very early U2 concert. It includes early non-album tracks such as "Speed of Light", "The Magic Carpet", "Trevor", "Pete the Chop", "Cartoon World", and "Jack in The Box". This is a very good and energetic show. After this show, U2 were offered a deal with Island Records. The CD is well-packaged, with era-correct pictures of the band on the sleeve and case. Track 1 is "The Silver Lining", which is an early version of "11 O'Clock Tick Tock" (with different lyrics), as it is listed on the cover. Track 18 features The Police. Track 19 features Bruce Springsteen. All of the bonus tracks have a fuzz indicating that the CD was probably recorded from a master whose levels were too high. This CD concert is available in an edited form as "bonus tracks" on ARC's FARAWAY, SO CLOSE...
This is the original pressing on this label.

Sound Quality:
Disc 1, Disc 2 (1-6): Good to very good audience.
Disc 2 (7-18): Poor soundboard.

Comments:
The Zooropa show from Italy is good performance for an enthusiastic audience, but the audience noise really ruins it. This is the last of four shows that Pearl Jam opened for U2 (along with An Emotional Fish) and Bono mentions them at one point. The real attraction of this package are the Dublin tracks, which should be the main feature of the discs, not bonus tracks! An embryonic U2 put on a great show for about 1000 fans and friends in their home town, a full 8 months before the release of "Boy". Many of the songs feature different lyrics than the ones we're used to on their later releases. Disc 2 Track 7 is "11 O'Clock Tick Tock" with different lyrics (it's listed as "11 O'Clock Tick Tock"). Track 10 is "Touch" with different lyrics. Track 16 features the original lyrics as found on the 1980 "Another Day" B-side. Track 18 is probably some kind of "inside joke", a short fragment of Don McLean's "Vincent" (probably not the original, but I wouldn't know). The inlay card calls it "The last non-deserved tribute to the Unforgettable Fire". The title is not on the package, but is printed on the CDs themselves. Very odd. The packaging is nice, featuring numerous pictures of the band, both old and new (great one of very young Bono, The Edge, and Larry on-stage). It includes a blurb about each show, and gives thanks to a Mr. Brush for taping the Zooropa show. Not to be confused with the other FARAWAY SO CLOSE, which has a very similar title!
This is the original pressing on this label.

Comments:
Some of the listed tracks are listed incorrectly on the back cover. The titles listed above are the best I could come up with. I am fairly certain that the pre-'Boy' titles listed above are correct. There are no liner notes. The packaging is not very good. The discs themselves say "C.B.C. Demos" instead of "U2: First Recordings".

Sound Quality:

(9-21): Very good broadcast. Tracks 9-11 show some deterioration of the original tapes (which WERE perfect).

Comments:
This bootleg is excellent. Great if you don't have "Touch" and "Things To Make And Do". Track 2 is labeled "An Cat Dubh (The Black Cat)" and Track 14 is labeled "Into The Head". The pictures in the CD are from 'The Unforgettable Fire' (CD and pictures) and 'Rattle And Hum' (shrug). All in all, it is excellent. I'm not sure about the availability, but I believe it is new and available. Deluxe color cover. Tracks 9-21 have some dropouts in maybe a couple of songs, enough to merit a lesser rating than Tracks 1-8 because the rules for broadcasts should be construed more strictly. Without the volume level and left-right level occasional dropouts, the recording itself isn't as "edgy" and "full-sounding" as the Holland tracks. The Holland tracks are just excellent.

Disc 2, Track 1 is "Party Girl", followed by "Gloria", both on the same track for some reason. Disc 1, Track 1 is the studio recording of "4th Of July," playing while U2 take the stage. A fine example of U2 live in the mid 80's. You'll probably find this one a bit difficult to find at this point in time. The jewel case is a thick double case, and it comes with an 8-page booklet complete with liner notes and 1985 tour dates. See also TOUCH.

Sound Quality:
Very good audience.

Comments:
U2 put on a good performance at a small club on their first visit to West Germany. It seems the audience is somewhat unreceptive for the first half of the concert, but the band wins their support by the end of the set, which is featured in its entirety on this disc. This would be a great bootleg, but pales in comparison to the superb recordings available of the concert from Boston, March 6, 1981 (See ANOTHER TIME, ANOTHER PLACE), which feature an identical setlist. It may be his experiences in Europe at about this time that Bono later described in "Stranger In A Strange Land". Color cover.

This is simply a fantastic disc. A great performance (containing the complete set list) for a very enthusiastic Boston crowd, combined with a superb recording, make this a must-have addition to any collection (which would explain why it has been pressed in so many different forms). This CD was probably mastered from a better source than the OUT OF CONTROL disc, as there doesn't seem to be any static or surface noise, it's possible this CD was mastered from the original source tape, rather than vinyl. See that entry for more information.

March 6, 1981. Boston, MA. Paradise Theater.

Sound Quality:
Excellent radio broadcast (soundboard). This performance was originally recorded for WBCN-FM radio in Boston. It was then pressed as the Warner Brothers Music Show promo LP, 'Two Sides Live'. It was from a copy of the promo LP, that this CD was mastered. As such, vinyl pops and ticks can be heard. There is also a skip that repeats about four times during "Things To Make And Do". Despite the vinyl source, this is still an excellent soundboard recording.

Comments:
A brilliant early performance that captures most of the first album live. This is one of the most common and best radio broadcasts from a time when this band mattered. "Another Time, Another Place" is played, despite not being listed on the cover. The second version of "11 O'Clock Tick Tock" does not come from a separate show. The band actually played it twice during this show! Unfortunately, this CD is not indexed, making it impossible to quickly jump from track-to-track. The cover is a 4-panel insert and tray card.

Sound Quality:
Very good audience.

Comments:
The quality isn't quite that of the first Paradise Theater show of this tour (March 6, 1981, TWO SIDES LIVE), but it's a pretty good audience recording. The industry seems to have left Italy physically (this disc was manufactured in Taiwan, not Italy or Luxembourg). The insert is blank, but the covers are all correct for the time period. The sound quality gives a good feel of what it must have been like to hear U2 in the audience, something that soundboard recordings sometimes don't give. As you may know, it wasn't unusual for a European band to play true encores, as U2 did for "I Will Follow", "11 O'Clock Tick Tock" and "The Ocean". I think Carter Alan mentions this in his book. Alan also mentions that it wasn't until later that he found out that U2 had older songs they could have played (from the demo period), but that they wanted to concentrate on the new, better material. Anyway, as someone said when another show came about on disc for the first time 13 years later, it is very unusual to have a show of this quality come out on CD 15 years later.

Comments:
This bootleg is excellent. Great if you don't have "Touch" and "Things To Make And Do". Track 2 is labeled "An Cat Dubh (The Black Cat)" and Track 14 is labeled "Into The Head". The pictures in the CD are from 'The Unforgettable Fire' (CD and pictures) and 'Rattle And Hum' (shrug). All in all, it is excellent. I'm not sure about the availability, but I believe it is new and available. Deluxe color cover. Tracks 9-21 have some dropouts in maybe a couple of songs, enough to merit a lesser rating than Tracks 1-8 because the rules for broadcasts should be construed more strictly. Without the volume level and left-right level occasional dropouts, the recording itself isn't as "edgy" and "full-sounding" as the Holland tracks. The Holland tracks are just excellent.

Comments:
The cover is an attractive 4-panel insert and 2-sided tray card. The Pinkpop material is a very good broadcast, but a tad harsh on the high end. The Toad's Place material is a good audience recording that sounds like it plays too fast. Excellent recording of one of U2's first "big shows"! The avid fan gets goosebumps to hear Bono proclaim "We are U2, have you heard of us?" Just before an awesome performance of "I Will Follow." Also includes the first live performance of "Fire."

Comments:
This CD is worth the money if you enjoy the early U2. This one really stumps me. This bootleg is out of the norm, if not weird. As many of you know, Rev. Records' THE LOST BROADCASTS VOL. ONE is pretty good. This bootleg is made by Foam Head and not Rev. Records. Even though the title appears to be a continuation of the bootleg THE LOST BROADCASTS VOL. ONE, it is not. In fact, similarity between two is that both bootlegs are from the same era. This bootleg rips off cover art and designs from other bootlegs. The cover and the inside booklet are the same pictures as seen in and on the bootleg THE GIG IN PHILLY. What is even funny is that the pictures here are not as good as the original. The back inlay is ripped of from the bootleg PICTURES IN GREY, and again the quality is not as good as the original. Further, the back cover says that this bootleg was manufactured by Foam Head, but the CD its self says it is a Prontomagic Recording. The back cover gives the number FH007, but the CD says TLBZ604. Given the peculiarity of this, the recordings here are great! The concert from Holland is a great performance, however, it is not complete. The band and audience and band sing "Happy Birthday" to Larry after Track 9. At midnight Bono remarks, "Tonight is very special, because the last teenager, our drummer, has just become 20 years old." It is a great (partial) concert, with an especially good version of "11 O'Clock Tick Tock." The concert from London is also great. Don't pass this one up. It is definitely an bootleg oddity, but offers partial recordings from two great shows. The first track has a pause for about a second then it plays the rest of the CD just fine. According to 'U2 Live: A Concert Documentary,' the first show is missing "Gloria," "Another Time Another Place," "I Threw A Brick Through A Window," "Twilight," and "Out Of Control." The second show missing "Rejoice." Overall, it's a good disc and shows the type of performances U2 gave back in the day. I have not seen these shows elsewhere, which will allow for the minor edits on the CD. Overall, its a solid buy for $20-25 US. Color cover. Picture CD.

ONE is pretty good. This bootleg is made by Foam Head and not Rev. Records. Even though the title appears to be a continuation of the bootleg THE LOST BROADCASTS VOL. ONE, it is not. In fact, similarity between two is that both bootlegs are from the same era. This bootleg rips off cover art and designs from other bootlegs. The cover and the inside booklet are the same pictures as seen in and on the bootleg THE GIG IN PHILLY. What is even funny is that the pictures here are not as good as the original. The back inlay is ripped of from the bootleg PICTURES IN GREY, and again the quality is not as good as the original. Further, the back cover says that this bootleg was manufactured by Foam Head, but the CD its self says it is a Prontomagic Recording. The back cover gives the number FH007, but the CD says TLBZ604. Given the peculiarity of this, the recordings here are great! The concert from Holland is a great performance, however, it is not complete. The band and audience and band sing "Happy Birthday" to Larry after Track 9. At midnight Bono remarks, "Tonight is very special, because the last teenager, our drummer, has just become 20 years old." It is a great (partial) concert, with an especially good version of "11 O'Clock Tick Tock." The concert from London is also great. Don't pass this one up. It is definitely an bootleg oddity, but offers partial recordings from two great shows. The first track has a pause for about a second then it plays the rest of the CD just fine. According to 'U2 Live: A Concert Documentary,' the first show is missing "Gloria," "Another Time Another Place," "I Threw A Brick Through A Window," "Twilight," and "Out Of Control." The second show missing "Rejoice." Overall, it's a good disc and shows the type of performances U2 gave back in the day. I have not seen these shows elsewhere, which will allow for the minor edits on the CD. Overall, its a solid buy for $20-25 US. Color cover. Picture CD.
This is the original pressing on this label.

Comments:
[Steve]: This concert - the last one on the first leg of the October Tour - was broadcast on German television as part of WDR's "Rockpalast" series. Even though it's such a long time ago the sound quality can still compete with today's recordings. During the first part of "Rejoice" the quality seems to deteriorate, but it quickly recovers. U2's performance isn't different from most other nights, except that Bono desperately tries to reach out to the German crowd the whole time. The audience is quite unresponsive and it clearly frustrates him. During "Rejoice" Bono sings improvised lines about the lights shining in his face and thus not being able to see the crowd and to "I Fall Down" he adds "I think I'll go home... I think I don't like this show". The rest of the concert sounds more inspired, with great versions of "I Will Follow", "Out Of Control" and "11 O'Clock Tick Tock".
The three bonus tracks are from the Roskilde festival in 1982 and although it was shown on TV as well, the sound quality is pretty bad The cover looks very nice, but it only has three B/W pictures and I don't think they're from the Berlin show. In fact they all come from Pimm Jal's "U2 Live" book (pages 20, 26 & 27). Overall, it's a great bootleg from the early days. The performance wasn't as inspired as the "infamous" Boston show earlier that year, but for collectors this bootleg's a must.
Color cover.
[Elisha]: This performance of early U2 really captures the spirit of their live performances in the Boy/ October period. Bono is quite vocal throughout about the fact that the lights were in his eyes and that he could not see the audience (apparently, still very new to public stage performance). U2 plays quite well, and Bono ends up improvising lyrics in many songs including Gloria, Another Time Another Place, An Cat Dubh, Rejoice, and I Fall Down. He is also quite chatty with the audience and they are certainly quite receptive to his attention. By the time he sings "call out" in 11:00 Tick tock, the audience responds by yelling "Bono!" and "Dublin!" The sound quality is excellent since it was recorded on a soundboard. The intro. to The Electric Co. that is called "The Cry" seems to have made its debut on this occasion as Bono precedes it with the words: "We're not used to doing auditions. We'll break that: this is The Cry". Before the encore of 11:00 Tick Tock, Bono tells the cheering audience: "You don't have to try so hard. We're not gonna make you wait. Can you hear it? Eleven O'Clock Tick Tock!". All in all, the CD captures the small-stage feel of U2's performance with a few bonus tracks to boot. Definitely pick this up if you're a fan of the raw and unmistakable early U2.

Sound Quality:
Very good to excellent audience. We briefly lose the right channel on the first track.

Comments:
As far as I know, this is the first ever CD release of this material - quite unbelievable, considering the fantastic quality of both the recording and the band's performance. It was recorded before a crowd of around 1500 on a five-deck riverboat, The SS President, whilst cruising the Mississippi River. Although there is a tape edit between Tracks 12 and 13, this CD contains the complete energetic performance. The packaging is excellent. The cover features a black and white photo of the band standing in front of the ship's bridge, while the 12-page booklet features numerous shots of the band, some of which are claimed to have been shot during this performance. There are also a couple of shots taken during the filming of the "Gloria" video. It's incredible that material of this quality is still surfacing thirteen years later. It has rapidly become one of my favorite recordings. I highly recommended this. This is only the third release from this record label; apparently the others have been very high quality as well. They seem to take pride in the material they put out, and might be a good label to look out for in the future.

Great CD. Bono is very chatty and is obviously having a good time with the crowd. He talks about how he was almost arrested earlier in the day when trying to join a Saint Patrick's Day parade as part of a photo shoot, about how the Irish are portrayed in the US and about his favorite part of the Irish flag (the middle, the white bit). There is a rare performance of Tomorrow included. Bono says that this is the first time they have performed that song, ever. The sound is very clear and good and the plays well and they are a little less ridgid in their adherence to the songs on the album. A must for a boot lover of their older material. The bonus tracks are also rare perfromances for each of those songs, but the sound quality is good audience at best.

Comments:

Comments:
The cover incorrectly sites the source as "Dublin, 1980". The set is only missing the opening number, "Out Of Control". This disc is mastered from the same tape as CATHOLIC OR PROTESTANT, except here the hiss has been been removed, resulting in a cleaner sound. A lot of the high frequency noise has been filtered out.

Comments:
"I Fall Down" is incorrectly listed as "I'm A Believer" on the cover. "A Celebration" is also incorrectly listed as "Shake Shake Shake". "Into The Heart" is played despite not being listed on the cover. This CD is mastered from a vinyl bootleg, of the same name. See also: RED LIGHT.
This particular disc is mastered from a Vinyl Source. In addition to the audible pops and crackles, the crowd banter from Bono is edited out. Also, the vinyl source is played slow, thus the disc sounds bad. Avoid this version if possible!

Sound Quality:
Excellent radio broadcast (soundboard). This is recorded from vinyl source.

Comments:
This is the heavily booted show in Hammersmith, however, this one includes "11 O'Clock Tick Tock" after "A Celebration." To my knowledge, this is the only one which has "11 O'Clock Tick Tock " on it, and in the correct order. I think this may be the complete show. The sound quality is better than that of 1982 U.K. TOUR , this appears to have no audible pops or cracks. A great recording. There are MANY mislabeled tracks on this one. Track 7 is mislabeled "I Don't Believe Em." Don't pass it up. This was taken from a widely-bootlegged 1982 radio show, not from 1981 as the title implies. A great reminder that this band once mattered. The cover is an attractive 1-piece insert and tray card. The packaging has a color picture of the band playing on it from 1981 or 1982. I do not know about the availability of this one, but I have not seen it on any guides or listings. My guess is that it is kind of rare.

Comments:
Originally recorded and broadcast for the BBC, this is a fantastic concert previewing the 'War' album material. On some other bootlegs of this show, "A Celebration" is included as a Track 13. On this bootleg, however, the track is omitted. Track 6 is incorrectly labeled as "I'm A Believer". This is the same recording as the bootlegs RED LIGHT and BBC CONCERT. The date above is the correct date, according to 'U2 Live: A Concert Documentary', Primm Jal de la Para.

Sound Quality:
Good to very good broadcast. Parts of this have a persistent high-pitched hum that accompanies The Edge's guitar and Bono's vocal track; can get a bit annoying.

Comments:
U2 put on a solid, high-energy performance for what Bono calls "the capital of Great Britain", which sends the audience ballistic. Bono messes up the lyrics a couple of times during the set, so he has to improvise a bit. I've have never come across any other live performance of "Tomorrow", although this recording appears on a couple of other bootlegs as a bonus track. Not a fantastic rendition of the song, but interesting as it features The Edge (I assume) playing a soprano recorder. Bono changes key in the middle of the song, which really kind of ruins it. At one point during the performance, Bono yells "Larry Mullen plays Yamaha drums!" "October" is not listed, but precedes "Tomorrow" on Track 9.

Disc 1, Disc 2 (1-7): May 6, 1983. Boston, MA. Orpheum Theater.
Disc 2 (8-11): October 14, 1980. Hilversum, Holland. KRO Studios.

Sound Quality:
Disc 1, Disc 2 (1-7): Excellent soundboard.
Disc 2 (8-11): Excellent broadcast soundboard.

Comments :
Although many songs of this show have been released on other bootlegs, this double CD has the COMPLETE soundboard recording of the May 6, 1983 show, which is very hard to come by. Six songs have never appeared on any bootlegs of this show before. The show is charged and U2 is in great form. The bootleg comes with black cover art and photos from both 1982 and (strangely enough) 1992. The Boston date incorrectly labeled as May 29, 1983. A nice addition to any collection, especially since it covers the entire show. The Hilversum recording appears on other bootlegs. Both shows were recorded for radio broadcast, but I believe the master tape from the Boston show was used to master this CD. You should definitely pick this up. This is probably the best recorded representation of a U2 show from the 1983 tour. The only flaw in the Boston show is a 2-second "skip" (quite like a record would do) during the piano intro to "I Fall Down." However, a careful listen doesn't reveal any surface noise one would expect from a recording mastered from vinyl. The Holland tracks are a nice addition.
This is the original pressing on this label.

Comments:
This is not the May 13, 1983, Philadelphia, PA, Tower Theater show, as previously thought. Having just picked up THE COMPLETE BOSTON '83 TAPES, I realized that the so-called "GIG IN PHILLY" bootleg is actually from the same May 6, 1983, Boston, MA, Orpheum Theater show, edited down, partially resequenced, and with considerably inferior sound. I also found out that The Swingin' Pig shut down in January, and that the Boston show was one of the last ones they did before calling it quits.

Comments:
This bootleg doesn't contain any hiss or tick as expected from a vinyl source, so I am assuming that it was taken from the master tapes, but it is possible that the last two songs were from taken the 'Under A Blood Red Sky' video. Most of the tracks on this bootleg are on the official video release 'Under A Blood Red Sky.' I tried compare this CD to the 'Under A Blood Red Sky' video and they both sound exactly alike. This means that this bootleg is edited just like the 'Under A Blood Red Sky' album was. The sound quality is almost exactly the same (although I prefer this to 'Under A Blood Red Sky'), but this one has a richer bass drum giving it a more "live" feel. The audience volume levels are exactly the same without sacrificing any sound quality. Much has been said about the COMPLETE BOSTON TAPES, and although I haven't heard that bootleg yet, I'd have to assume this is better simply because this sounds even better than 'Under A Blood Red Sky!' This bootleg is probably hard to find nowadays. It is definitely worth the price, though. The best pre-Joshua Tree bootleg out there bar-none (in my opinion). I can state that it is the full show and it is of excellent quality, but there is one lingering question. "I Threw A Brick Through A Window" and "A Day Without Me" actually come before "Gloria" on the set list, but not having the CD in front of me, I can't confirm the actual order. Can anyone else? This can be found in a shorter edited version that is more polished on the CD entitled SECONDS.
[Mick McGuigan]: This was broadcast on FM Radio in Colorado in or around November 83 and I believe that this particular bootleg is a recording of that broadcast ? „I Threw A Brick Through A Window“ and „A Day Without Me“ were omitted from the broadcast and so they were probably added to the end.

Sound Quality:

Comments:
This comes in a shiny metal case with a paper covering and is of a "limited edition" of 350 copies. It says "U2 Recorded During American Tour -- Red Rocks, Denver 5/6/83". Tracks 1 and 14 are by Clannad, not U2.

Comments:
Released in 1991. This disc is mastered directly from the commercially-released video tape, 'Under A Blood Red Sky'. As such, the sound quality and performance are excellent, but not very unique. The intro and outro are Clannad's "Harry's Game" as heard during the opening and closing credits on the videotape.

Comments:
The sound on this bootleg is distorted, it doesn't sound like a first-generation copy at all. I don't have a trained ear but I think it's recorded a bit too slow as well. The first few tracks are ok, but later on the sound gets worse. It's obviously recorded from Dutch radio because a few times during the concert a voice comes on and announces "This is a broadcast by KRO's Rocktempel". It's quite annoying. U2 play an inspired show. Before "An Cat Dubh" Bono thanks the festival crowd for having them two years in a row. 2:46 into the song, "Into The Heart" starts all over again. It seems the bootleggers really liked this song. Bono holds his regular speech before "Sunday Bloody Sunday". Later on, he says that today's concert is the last day of a very long world tour that started with the release of "Boy". He says thanks to everybody on the bill, from Warren Zevon and Eurythmics to John Cale and Jim Kerr of The Simple Minds. The latter comes onstage to sing along with "11 O'Clock Tick Tock", which features snippets of "Someone, Somewhere, In Summertime". According to Pimm Jal's "U2 Live" book "40" was also played at the concert, but it's missing from this disc. The bonus tracks from "Old Grey Whistle Test" sound better than the Werchter tracks, but there's a lot more hiss present. Pimm Jal's book states that "The Ocean" was played before "11 O'Clock Tick Tock" and it's perfectly possible because there's a clear edit between the two songs on the CD. I have no idea to why they changed the order of the tracks. The performance of "Tomorrow" is beautiful, as always. Such an emotional song. The cover says "For Promotional Use Only". What a joke! It's just a bootleg like all the others, except that this one's pretty bad. Since U2's performance at the Werchter festival was televised there will hopefully be better quality bootlegs of this concert available in the future. Deluxe color cover.

Comments:
Single color cover insert and tray card. This is a pretty standard set from 1983, but it is of interest because it is the first show ever to surface from that year's tour of Japan. It's from a clean, but unspectacular, tape source which appears to be a master cassette. The absence of any hiss or dropouts would seem to indicate this and the concert ticket pictures on the tray card would seem to confirm it.

Sound Quality:
Good audience. This recording is very good for an audience recording from 1984. All the frequencies are quite audible, as well as the bass and the high sounds. The audience reactions are well heard but it's not irritating. The music tops the audience.

Comments:
This is a very "rare" bootleg. To my knowledge only 25 were printed. The discs are gold colored, which could indicate that they are made on private CD-Rs. The disc printing is very plain; only black letters giving the name of the bootleg and the source. The back of the bootleg says it is made in Milano (Italy) but when I bought it the shop owner said that the distribution was only in the Netherlands. This bootleg came together with the Amsterdam 1989 show (also 25 copies). The cover is nice but single-sheeted. The back has the same background. Two pictures shot by Anton Corbijn during the The Unforgettable Fire photo session make the artwork worthwhile. The show is strong and solid. The audience sing along very well. With only 90 minutes of disc space used, the bootleg could have been filled with another recording, but this is not done.

Comments:
This is an excellent bootleg. The sound quality's extremely good for an audience recording and the show itself is great too. U2 always enjoy playing The Netherlands and you can hear it. The band come onstage during "4th Of July" which is played from a tape. "Wire" has a nice improv at the end, when Bono repeats the line "I'll take you home tonight" over and over again. He tries to say something in Dutch before "Surrender", but failes to pronounce it right. The song features snippets of Van Morrisson's "Gloria", which popped up during "Exit" on the Joshua Tree Tour. Introducing "A Sort Of Homecoming" Bono thanks the audience for getting the tickets and waiting in line for so long. During "Electric Co." he explains what the title means and improvises some lines. "Bad" is somewhat shorter than most other performances but it sounds superb. "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" is dedicated to Martin Luther King. "40" and a short bit of the outro "Theme From Harry's Game" end a beautiful concert. The cover's very nicely done and there are no mistakes in the track list. Deluxe color cover. Both CDs are identical; each silver with "U2 When We Were Young" printed in black on it, and a black silhouette of Bono jumping on one foot. Definitely smart bootleggers at work here. Only too bad there are no bonus tracks on the second disc. With only about 45 minutes of music each, both discs are too short. In my opinion it's the best Unforgettable Fire Tour bootleg available, together with FOUR AT FOUR. It used to be extremely hard to find, but I'm not sure about its availability now.

Comments:
Deluxe color digipack package. Very interesting versions of songs from 'The Unforgettable Fire' songs on the Melbourne tracks. Also a lot of older songs are played on this bootleg that were never played again on later tours. This CD is of similar quality to two other excellent CDs from 'The Unforgettable Fire'-era, THE UNFORGETTABLE NIGHT and FOUR AT FOUR. Unfortunately, though, this CD has been mastered at the wrong speed. As a result, the pitch of the Wembley show is too fast by nearly 1/2 a step. The bonus tracks are even worse; they are off in pitch by nearly a whole step. If attention to details such as proper pitch matters to you, and if you have the ears to tell the difference, don't buy this CD. If, on the other hand, such things don't matter to you, or if you can't tell the difference anyway, then it is a worthy CD to add to your collection. It's hard to imagine how anyone could not recognize how bad the bonus tracks are, though. They sound more like the Chimpunks than U2. Finally, this recording is *not* from November 14, 1984, as the manufacturer claims. It is from the second night at Wembley Arena, London, England on November 15, 1984. This CD could have been terrific, since it's one of the best concerts from the first European leg of the Unforgettable Fire tour, and it includes (among many other highlights) some beautiful improvisational scat singing before "Bad" that I've never heard Bono sing prior to this show or since. It's a shame the manufacturer didn't pay enough attention to details to get this one right.

Overall Sound: 9.0

Alive: 9.5
Ambience: 9.7
Performance: 9.7
Artificial: 0.0

Comments:
Disc 2, Track 1 is "Party Girl", followed by "Gloria", both on the same track for some reason. Disc 1, Track 1 is the studio recording of "4th Of July," playing while U2 take the stage. A fine example of U2 live in the mid 80's. You'll probably find this one a bit difficult to find at this point in time. The jewel case is a thick double case, and it comes with an 8-page booklet complete with liner notes and 1985 tour dates. See also TOUCH.

Sound Quality:
Excellent audience. At times, it sounds much like a soundboard.

Comments:
This is an excellent show from the The Unforgettable Fire Tour, but it is missing a few songs in the middle such as "Sunday Bloody Sunday". There is a live version of "Wire", and during "40", Bono leads the crowd in a "Feed The World" chant from "Do They Know It's Christmas?". All in all, a good boot.

Comments:
The Chicago performance is also available (in an edited form) on THE FLAME AND THE FIRE, and PEACE UNDER A CHICAGO SKY. The cover features pictures of Bono, also used on both CDs. The booklet includes tour dates and a few colored photos. This is a great show from the Unforgettable Fire tour. The sound is great and it's a strong show. This is before the band got "mega huge." "I Will Follow" finds Bono talking to a cameraman present from the local news. "Electric Co." includes a verse of "Amazing Grace." "Bad" is strong and includes snippets of "Ruby Tuesday" and "Sympathy For The Devil," both by the Rolling Stones. It's performances like this that built U2's worldwide fame. The opening act, Red Rockers, appear with U2 on "40". A great show. The bonus tracks are available in a more complete form on PARTY AT TIFFANY. Believe it or not, Disc 2 doesn't sound as good as Disc 1. This could be due to the manufacturer paying less attention to mastering Disc 2. This is ironic because Disc 2 is just a continuation of the same concert, so one would really expect the same sound quality. Disc 1, however, sounds excellent; definitely among the best audience recordings of U2 from the 1980s. (An example of the difference in sound quality between Disc 1 and Disc 2 would be exactly like the differences between the sound quality of ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET (Disc 1) and NEW HORIZON (Disc 2). Hope this makes sense.). It really sounds preposterous that Disc 2 would sound not as good as Disc 1, but that is the simple fact. The opening act, Red Rockers, appear with U2 on "40".

Comments:
Disc 1 through Track 3 of Disc 2 labeled "The Unforgettable Fire Tour". Tracks 4 through 6 of Disc 2 labeled "The Amnesty International Tour". Disc 2, Track 7 through Disc 3, Track 10 labeled "The Joshua Tree Tour". Tracks 11 through 15 on Disc 3 labeled "Impromptu Tour". Worth every penny I paid. The sound quality on most of these tracks is amazing. This boxed set is basically a combination of ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET (Chicago) and THE UNFORGETTABLE NIGHT (see those for their respective reviews) as well as parts of ROCK & ROLL STOP THE TRAFFIC and RAIN ON YOU. Check out all of these reviews to get an idea on this one. Overall, this bootleg arguably has the best sounding and performance of tours from the 'The Unforgettable Fire' and 'The Joshua Tree' eras. "October", "Gloria" and "40" have been omitted from the Chicago performance (most likely due to lack of disc space). Bono goes into "Do They Know It's Christmas?" during "40". The Chicago performance of "With Or Without You" includes the extra verse and a snippet of Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart". "Love Rescue Me" is the same performance as the one on the "Angel of Harlem" CD Single. Each CD is in its own jewel box. The booklets have the same cover but inside each one are different pictures of the band. The box cover shows the actual Joshua Tree in a purple and red atmospheric background (kind of like 'The Joshua Tree' meets 'The Unforgettable Fire'). My copy will not be for sale anytime soon. Not to be confused with KEEPING THE FAITH VOLUMES 1 & 2. This is the second of four boxed sets in the Flying Tigers series, comprising THE NEW WORD - VOL. 1, KEEPING THE FAITH - VOL. 2, THE FLY - VOL. 3, and RARE TRACKS - VOL. 4.

Comments:
These short but complete sets are in broadcast quality of U2's major 1980's festival events. This is the exact same boot as TOO MUCH TALK, but this one adds "Stand By Me" with Bruce Springsteen. Great performances all around. This bootleg is a CD-R. I have come to theorize that this boot, ROCK 'N' ROLL AIN'T NOISE POLLUTION! and VEGAS STYLE, are a produced by the same producer because the cover art and the graphics are similar. Plus, all of them seem to be printed off an ink jet printer. Furthermore, I bought them all at the same store. Does anyone know? Scant liner notes and a paper insert with blue a border (UGH! Couldn't they find some pictures, even I have pictures of U2 at Live Aid!). U2 at its political height. The Live Aid set is great, but The end of a stunning "Bad" is cut out. It does include snippets of "Walk On The Wild Side." It ends a little over 12 minutes. This may be due to CDR mastering. This two-song performance cemented U2's reputation as one of the 80's biggest bands. Despite the liner notes claim of "short but complete sets," the US Festival material is only part of a full set that U2 performed. The "Closing Medley" section includes the DJ narrating Bono's climb to the top of the stage. (Supporting the liner notes claim of broadcast quality.) The Conspiracy Of Hope material is nice, with a lot of croud noise. The segue from "MLK" into "Pride (In the Name Of Love)" is not listed. This is a set with U2 in good form supporting another cause. They included a dark take on Bob Dylan's "Maggie's Farm," which includes lines of John Lennon's "Cold Turkey." The set closes with Bono singing the Beatles' "Help" and an all-star finale which features appearances by Lou Reed and Little Steven, among others. The bonus track is from the Joshua Tour's stop in Philadelphia. Bruce Springsteen joins U2 onstage, as Bono's arm was in a sling due to a separated shoulder. It has appeared on a few other releases, and was originally lifted from one of the 'Rattle And Hum' outtakes videos. Good quality.

Tracks 1-3 are from the US Festival. Tracks 4 and 5 are from Live Aid. Tracks 6-12 are from Amnesty International 'Conspiracy of Hope' Tour. Same as TOO MUCH TALK. A fantastic package, the highlights being Bono climbing a 150 foot high catwalk during "Electric Co.", the Live Aid version of "Bad", and U2's "twisted" interpretation of Bob Dylan's "Maggie's Farm". "Sun City" features appearances by Lou Reed and Little Steven, among others. A good investment, if you can find it, from the now-defunct Australian Applehouse family (Joker and Banana).

Comments:
This is a great CD featuring three of U2's most significant performances etween the end of the Unforgettable Fire Tour and the release of 'The oshua Tree'. The CD is indexed rather oddly. "MLK" and "Pride (In The ame Of Love)" are indexed together, yet "Maggie's Farm" is indexed with single line from John Lennon's "Cold Turkey" on a separate track. "Bad" and "Sunday Bloody Sunday" are suspiciously missing between Tracks and 9. Little Steven, Nona Hendrix and Lou Reed appear on Track 12. The "Live Aid" tracks are excellent.

Comments:
[Simon Wenmouth]: (Tracks 1-6) A great recording taken, I assume, from a television broadcast -- track one fades in to an excited commentator and screaming crowd "Are you having a good time? ... everybody in Ireland is watching you!". Assuming U2 are the headliners (as they should be) Bono's starting comments are quite puzzling: "I think we've only got 15 minutes so we'd better make this quick". They quickly start an energetic performance of "C'mon Everybody". Before an acoustic rendition of "Sunday Bloody Sunday" Bono makes a patriotic speech on the unemployment situation (I assume was quite bad at the time). After "Sunday Bloody Sunday" the CD cuts to later in the performance and [Bob Dylans] "Maggies Farm". Bono gets a little over excited and at the end trails into "Old MacDonald had a Farm" (oh dear) before returning to the original song to Edges guitar distortions. This is where the performance would have ended but "the man back there says they can do one more". They play "Bad/Walk On The Wild Side". (Tracks 7-14) "Bad/Walk On The Wild Side" cuts (quite annoyingly) straight to the the second performance and a short (but nice) "MLK". The crowd sound close but don't overshadow the music so this was probably taken off the soundboard. A slight hiss is apparent on these tracks, but is almost unnoticable. Little Steven and then Lou Reed are guests on "Sun City". The set ends and then it cuts to [another Bob Dylan song] and "I shall be released" is played with Sting as guest. Whether this is a encore, which would explain the cut between tracks, I am not sure. (Bonus tracks 15-16) Keith Richards provides his guitar (and vocal) talent (?) on "When Love Comes Town". Bono introduces Ziggy Marley on vocals in "Love Comes To Town". The inside cover gives us a nice (but poor quality) colour picture of messers Bono, Edge and Richards. The front cover is a dark picture of Bono at the microphone, the back cover being individual colour pictures of the group (including one with Edge in a slighly muddy/rusty white shirt :O)). Also, strangely, behind the CD mount there's a picture of Bono being less than photogenic, (who, in my opinion, looks an odd Bill Murray). Unlike the inside cover the other photos are of good quality.
[Steve]: This bootlegs combines three concerts that were simultaneously broadcast on radio and television: "Self Aid", "Conspiracy Of Hope finale" and "Smile Jamaica", all three of them charity gigs. The sound's good throughout, although The Edge's guitar seems to be a little off during some of the "Self Aid" tracks. Also, the audience is very loud during the "Conspiracy Of Hope" performance and some shrieking can be heard. The "Smile Jamaica" songs on the other hand are of excellent sound quality. The disc starts with Dave Fanning introducing the band to the Dublin audience. They open the show with "C'Mon Everybody", a song they've only covered a few times. Before "Sunday Bloody Sunday" Bono talks about being in a rock and roll band and now knowing what it's like to be out of work, unlike a lot of the people in the audience. There's a noticeable edit between "Sunday Bloody Sunday" and "Maggie's Farm". During the latter Bono sings about Ireland's unemployment, the Chernobyl nuclear disaster and Dublin's drug problems, incorporating some lines from "Cold Turkey". The show ends with a short, but great version of "Bad", which includes snippets of "Walk On The Walk Side". "MLK" is very short, only lasting a little over a minute and "Bad" is played early in the set. Bono doesn't talk nearly as much as during "Self Aid". The crowd sing along fanatically to "Help". "Sun City" sounds fantastic with Little Steven, Nona Hendrix, Ruben Blades and Lou Reed all singing along with Bono. "I Shall Be Released" is the night's finale, with everyone who performed that night being onstage. U2 played four songs on "Smile Jamaica", but only "When Love Comes To Town" and "Love Rescue Me" are on this bootleg. The latter - with Ziggy Marley - can also be found on U2's "Angel Of Harlem" single. Keith Richards plays along on both tracks. This disc offers a great taste of U2's charity appearances in the 80s, with some rare performances of "C'Mon Everybody", "Maggie's Farm" and "Invisible Sun". The only downside is that most of the "Self Aid" and "Conspiracy Of Hope" songs are the same.

Sound Quality:
Fair audience.

Comments:
This concert was recorded during the Amnesty International Tour. The CD contains a long version of "Bad" (nearly 13 minutes) with "Candle In The Wind" and "Biko" at the end sung two times by Bono, but the drawback is that this track was artificially lengthened by someone splicing the center section back onto the end of the song. The Edge plays a very aggressive guitar during "Pride (In The Name Of Love)," with an unusual amount of "rock" distortion. "Sunday Bloody Sunday" is played very softly and slowly. Some mistakes on the cover: "Sunday Bloody Sunday" is written by U2 and not by Lennon/Ono, "Bad" is not by Castor/Pruitt/Thomas/Gibson. Track 8 is mentioned as "Not So Far Away (Sun City)" instead of "Sun City". The booklet is minimal with no information concerning the tour. This is a good document of one of the few shows U2 performed in 1986. Although the sound isn't as crisp as a soundboard, all the instruments come through very well. Crowd noise, though present, is manageable and not distracting. There's also quite a few covers here, including a fairly rare take on "Sun City."

Comments:
These short but complete sets are in broadcast quality of U2's major 1980's festival events. This is the exact same boot as TOO MUCH TALK, but this one adds "Stand By Me" with Bruce Springsteen. Great performances all around. This bootleg is a CD-R. I have come to theorize that this boot, ROCK 'N' ROLL AIN'T NOISE POLLUTION! and VEGAS STYLE, are a produced by the same producer because the cover art and the graphics are similar. Plus, all of them seem to be printed off an ink jet printer. Furthermore, I bought them all at the same store. Does anyone know? Scant liner notes and a paper insert with blue a border (UGH! Couldn't they find some pictures, even I have pictures of U2 at Live Aid!). U2 at its political height. The Live Aid set is great, but The end of a stunning "Bad" is cut out. It does include snippets of "Walk On The Wild Side." It ends a little over 12 minutes. This may be due to CDR mastering. This two-song performance cemented U2's reputation as one of the 80's biggest bands. Despite the liner notes claim of "short but complete sets," the US Festival material is only part of a full set that U2 performed. The "Closing Medley" section includes the DJ narrating Bono's climb to the top of the stage. (Supporting the liner notes claim of broadcast quality.) The Conspiracy Of Hope material is nice, with a lot of croud noise. The segue from "MLK" into "Pride (In the Name Of Love)" is not listed. This is a set with U2 in good form supporting another cause. They included a dark take on Bob Dylan's "Maggie's Farm," which includes lines of John Lennon's "Cold Turkey." The set closes with Bono singing the Beatles' "Help" and an all-star finale which features appearances by Lou Reed and Little Steven, among others. The bonus track is from the Joshua Tour's stop in Philadelphia. Bruce Springsteen joins U2 onstage, as Bono's arm was in a sling due to a separated shoulder. It has appeared on a few other releases, and was originally lifted from one of the 'Rattle And Hum' outtakes videos. Good quality.

Comments:
The Tempe concert is the second concert of the Joshua Tree Tour, Bono had voice problems on the first concert but he sings well in this show. During "Where The Streets Have No Name", he shouts, "I can sing!" The version of "Bullet The Blue Sky" ends in a strange way, but the other songs are nicely played. There are a lot of covers in "Bad" (from The Rolling Stones, Lou Reed, etc.) and the bonus tracks are very interesting because you can find some rarely-performed songs like "Lucille" and "Mothers Of The Disappeared" (which is a good version). The cover lists "Sympathy for The Devil" as "Street-Fighting Man".
This is the original pressing on this label.

Comments:
This bootleg features the second show on the first leg of the Joshua Tree Tour. Subsequently most new songs (back then!) sound somewhat different than the live versions later in the tour. "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" was played very early in the show (2nd song), without a speech by Bono. However, Bono talks about the influence American music had on their music during the intro of "A Sort Of Homecoming". "Maggie Farm" makes a rather unexpected appearance. U2 only played it live during the few first shows of this tour and on some other special occasions, like "Self Aid" in 1986. "Bad" is quite long and includes snippets from "John, I'm Only Dancing", "Goodbye Ruby Tuesday", "Sympathy For The Devil", "Candle In The Wind" and "Take A Walk On The Wild Side". Maybe the most special song is "With Or Without You", which is performed live for the first time ever, as indicated by Bono. "We'll shine like stars" and snippets of "Love Will Tear Us Apart" appear at the end of the song. "New Year's Day" is the first track on the second disc and there are no noticeable edits, so I assume it was played that night. However, Pimm Jal doesn't mention the song in his "U2 Live" book. Before "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" Bono talks about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and why April 4 is such a special day for America and the world. Bono introduces "People Get Ready" as an old American song and invites the crowd to sing along. Unfortunately most people in the audience don't know the words. During the song Bono thanks the crowd and talks about TIME Magazine, which will have U2 on the cover soon afterwards. Unfortunately this is where the disc fades out. The sound is good to very good for an audience recording. You can hear people screaming and clapping in between and during the songs, but they're never louder than the band. This concert can also be found on GOVERNOR MECHAM & MLK, with the end of "People Get Ready". The thing that makes JOSHUA TREE IN FLAMES stand out are the first 2 bonus tracks. It's a short live performance by The Dalton Brothers, U2 acting as their own opening act. Hearing Bono and The Edge try to speak in these thick southern accents is hilarious, just as hearing some people in the audience shout "You suck!" and "Get the hell off the stage". Little did they know. :-) The next bonus tracks are not so interesting, as their sound quality is not so good. The last 4 songs can be found, in much better sound quality, on JOSHUA TREE ON FIRE.

Comments:
U2 perform extremely well this night. I love bootlegs recorded early on their tours, especially on nights where everything comes together. This night's performance is flawless, and it's great to hear those April '87 bootlegs where the setlist changed appreciably from night to night. The copy I have comes in after The Edge has already started chiming in with Streets. After that we plunge right into Still Haven't Found (still one month away from release as a single!), with a version of Exodus tacked on that's much more Marley-like than future versions by the band. Bullet is marked by jabs at televangelists, and Bono squeezes in a commentary about the Seven Towers before sliding into A Sort Of Homecoming (pretty rare for The Joshua Tree Tour). Exit is sweetened by a harmonica bit at the end, I'd never heard that before. Bad has a great feel to it, Bono does a bit of improv here. U2 play their hearts out on the new hit single With Or Without You, before the requisite New Year's Day and Pride. MLK and UF appear very late in the set. Interestingly, Trip Through Your Wires is an encore if I'm not mistaken. Here, Bono tries a Frank Sinatra impersonation on the verse after the guitar bridge and it doesn't work well. The band close with the anthemic "40". The sound quality is audience, but people can only be heard talking once or twice, and after Streets, the sound is really pretty good. Sound does have that boomy reverb feel of an 80's audience recording, but it's still worth it! The show is great.

The opener "Where The Streets Have No Name" is left out, as are "MLK", "Exit", "In God's Country", "October", "I Trip Through Your Wires". Also, "With Or Without You" is actually after "Bad" on the original set list so there may be a cut and paste job here or an incorrect date. Is anyone able to confirm this? A quick note, on this same night, the video for "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" was filmed in the streets of downtown Las Vegas. By the way, this is similar to Viva's I WILL FOLLOW, but has more tracks.

Comments:
This bootleg is quite similar to NEW HORIZON, but not as crystal clear as Red Phantom's ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET, both of which were taped only 4 days after this one. The show is complete and features some surprises, like a performance of "Springhill Mining Disaster" (without interruption) and a woman coming on stage to talk about Amnesty International during "Pride (In The Name Of Love." It also has one of the best renditions of "With Or Without You" (including "Love Will Tear Us Apart") I've ever heard. This a great first-leg Joshua Tree Tour boot. Most of the tracks from the soundcheck can also be found on LUCILLE. Great show, great CD. Bono seems to talk a lot during this concert, offering some explanations for songs and a very moving speech in the middle of "Sunday Bloody Sunday" (see Pimm Jal de la Parra's 'U2 Live- A Concert Documentary' for a more complete run down of what Bono says). The show has some exceptional performances, such as "Bad." "Springhill Mining Disaster" is the second U2 performance of it ever. "The Unforgettable Fire" is the same one used in ULTRA RARE TRACKS VOL 3. The soundcheck they throw in at the end is a nice bonus, but the sound on those is really bad and you cannot understand Bono at all. Even if you have other Joshua Tree Tour shows on CD, this is really worth having. There was a great audience for U2 to work with that night. This bootleg is comparable to Red Phantom's masterpiece ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET for sure. It is definitely better than NEW HORIZON in terms of its sharpness and crispness (or brightness of tone, sharpness of the drums, cymbals and vocals and just generally the kind of clarity and presence you get from a master generation tape that's done really well). THE JOSHUA TREE ON FIRE was mastered exceptionally well, and must be made from a master tape (unlike NEW HORIZON, which, oddly enough, is on this same label, Flashback). THE JOSHUA TREE ON FIRE is certainly a fantastic companion to ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET, and one that seems to be readily available at the moment (unlike ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET, which is now out of print. The only major difference between the two is that the sound on THE JOSHUA TREE ON FIRE is a bit more distant and higher on the treble end than ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET. Otherwise, they're comparable in quality. This is easily one of the most crisp and detailed audience bootlegs of U2 in existence. The drum and cymbal clarity are awesome and Bono's voice and the band's performance are in top form. The bass may be a bit too low and the treble a little higher, but slight adjustments to the equalizer reveal no loss in quality if the bass volume is increased. The tone and detail remains consistent, unlike other boots. Jeff Shirkey and Lee Ellen contributed to this review.

Comments:
U2 put on a great show for Glasgow. Bono refers to "Lucille" as "the first country song we ever wrote". The soundcheck is an interesting bonus, even though the sound quality is not great. Track 8 of Disc 2 is mainly instrumental, then Bono sings a couple of lines of The Doors' classic. Tracks 10 and 12 of Disc 2 are unreleased songs and both are fairly decent (the titles were presumably invented by the bootlegger). Track 13 of Disc 2 is labeled as "acoustic version", but it isn't (although the drums are missing and Edge is playing a different riff).

Comments:
[Adrian Elmer]: This disc is another version of RDS Showgrounds show in Dublin during the ZooTV Tour (See ZOOROPA 1993, 10" REELS, ZOO EUROPA etc.). It has excellent sound, but a few drawbacks. As well as the lack of track indexing, it also starts with the familiar guitar sounds of Zoo Station, omitting all the intro sound found on ZOOROPA 1993. It also only covers the first half of the show. The bonus tracks are good quality, but can be found as part of the complete concert on ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET. The sound of them on this CD is a little bottom heavy after hearing the pristine sound of the Dublin show, but turning down the bass level on the stereo leaves the sound clear. A good CD, but get ZOOROPA 1993 and ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET if you can to hear these tracks in a better context. Also, this CD is not indexed.

This is the original pressing on this label.

Sound Quality :
Very good audience.

Comments:
Tracks 10 and 11 of CD 2 feature Bob Dylan. The Rosemont Horizon concert appears without Disc 2, Tracks 9-11 on Red Phantom's ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET. This presentation offers a lot less in sound quality (less range and tone) than Red Phantom's ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET. There also is a lot of hiss throughout this bootleg. I am not sure if this is the same source as Red Phantom's ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET, but is definitely lower in sound quality. If you can't find than Red Phantom's ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET, you're be better off buying Flashback's JOSHUA TREE ON FIRE rather than this sub-par offering. They basically have the same setlist and are one show (four days) apart.

A very good recording. U2 really put on a good show. A great CD. If you come across it, buy it right away. The only downside is the fact that it only contains 10 tracks. As usual, Bono is really turns "Bad" into something special. This is available in its entire form on Red Phantom's ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET, among many others.

Stop whistling 'cause I'm not in the Beatles, it's U2 here!" Not to be confused with the 2CD sets, of the same name, on the Golden Stars and Live Storm labels. I just wanted to say that the recording is really good, although it's audience, but the concert itself is one of the bests ever. U2 seems to have a love for Chicago, and Bono isn't shy to tell the crowd (and they love it). When he says during 'Pride (In The Name Of Love)', "...I remember very much Chicago. One, because I think U2 played well that night, it was good... and two, because... you're so noisy!" The crowd, as Bono obviously planned, goes nuts and screams their heads off! "In the name of love!!!..." Bono continues. And during "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", when Bono chants "People dancing to a U2 song, I don't believe this!" Everyone eats it up, dancing and screaming like they never have before. I guess what I'm trying to say is that this is just a damn good (audience participating) concert. If you can find it, and loved the Joshua Tree days (as one must), you'll love this! Feel free to argue with me about this.

This bootleg is a condensed version of Red Phantom's ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET, with the same sound quality. Whereas other re-issues lose considerable fidelity (see NEW HORIZON), this one doesn't and even seems to be remastered to sound a bit better. Definitely worth the investment if you are just after the "key" tracks in Red Phantom's ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET.

Does this look familiar? It should, it is yet another form of the famed ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET double CD, condensed here on one CD. Not only is it short, they left many songs out of the set. Not a very good disc to pick up because it is available in great quality and in a full set on other discs, especially Red Phantom's ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET.

Sound Quality:
Fair audience (for the most part). Not very good quality, and it is mastered from vinyl LP. The audience noise, although never drowning out the music, is loud enough to be annoying at times.

Comments:
This CD set is not all that great. Disc 1 is fair and Disc 2 is pretty neat, but annoying. The songs on the Disc 2 are a good collection. The three demos are interesting, taken from radio broadcasts, with an announcer speaking after each song. I've never heard them before and at the time I got the CDs, those tracks were the earliest work I'd ever heard from the band. "Tonight" is from a very early, rough demo. "Trevor" is for the Dave Fanning Rock Show, and "Out Of Control" was recorded after winning a talent contest. I think I paid $50 for this 2CD set. Not worth that I think, but I don't know how "rare" the recordings on Disc 2 are. I ended up sending this 2CD set back and trading it for NEW HORIZON, which I absolutely love.

Comments:
The quality of this CD is very good. It's not the complete recording, but at last this show is somewhat more complete on CD. Deluxe color cover. This is taken from the vinyl bootlegs of the same source and pieced together to fit on a single CD. I don't know why they put three bonus tracks on this CD instead of more tracks from the show in Gothenburg. Missing tracks from the June 6, 1987, Gothenburg, Sweden show are: "Running To Stand Still," "Exit," "In God's Country," "Sunday Bloody Sunday," "Bad" and "40." You'd better keep waiting for a CD containing the complete show. Colored cover with yellow "U2" logo, "Free For All" printed in green and a lilac / red star. All pictures used for the 4-sided booklet were taken from the book "U2 Live - A Concert Documentary." The CD is printed in blue with red lettering. This is a European bootleg. The cover says "Made in Israel."

Sound Quality:
Disc 1, Disc 2 (1-3): Fair audience.
Disc 2 (4-9): Poor audience.

Comments:
Most of Disc 1 is listed incorrectly, but the above tracklisting is correct. There are black and white pictures of Bono printed on the CD-Rs. This CD-R set also features a professionally-printed in color cover. This is from the same bootlegger as WHEN WE WERE YOUNG. The soundchecks on Disc 2 sound like they are coming out of a tin can. Disc 2, Tracks 4-9 are from a soundcheck. Additional comments and info needed on this bootleg.

Comments:
Disc 1: The Red Rockers appear on Track 15. "Bad" was played after "A Sort Of Homecoming", but has been edited out. "Gloria" was played (again) after "40", but it too has been edited out. These edits were probably made in order to allow this performance to fit onto one disc. The CD itself is a picture disc. This CD is also sold separately. See also: FOUR AT FOUR, and PEACE UNDER A CHICAGO SKY.

Disc 2: This is a picture disc CD. It is also available separately.

Disc 3: B.B. King appears on Tracks 12 and 13. This picture disc CD is basically an edited down, one disc version of the same performance that was issued on the double CD, FREEDOM OF THE SPIRITS. This disc is also available separately.

Comments:
U2 put on a great show for Glasgow. Bono refers to "Lucille" as "the first country song we ever wrote". The soundcheck is an interesting bonus, even though the sound quality is not great. Track 8 of Disc 2 is mainly instrumental, then Bono sings a couple of lines of The Doors' classic. Tracks 10 and 12 of Disc 2 are unreleased songs and both are fairly decent (the titles were presumably invented by the bootlegger). Track 13 of Disc 2 is labeled as "acoustic version", but it isn't (although the drums are missing and Edge is playing a different riff).

Sound Quality:
Excellent audience. This CD has been mastered from a vinyl source, thus some pops and ticks can be heard.

Comments:
An excellent performance that marks the last date of the 1987 European tour, as well as the The Edge's 27th birthday. During "People Get Ready", Bono pulls an audience member onto the stage to play his guitar. He also explains how The Edge has been giving him guitar lessons. "Exit" doesn't segue into U2's "Gloria", but rather into the Van Morrison song of the same title.

The CD incorrectly says July 28, 1987.

Sound Quality:
Very good soundboard.

Comments:
Like the title implies, it was a mixing desk recording (i.e. the sound you hear is the sound that came through the PA). U2 were furious when the found out about a leaked out concert recording. Paul McGuinnes later stated that the soundcrew responsible for recording it, AND selling it, were immediatly fired. So, not always is it the fans who make illegimate material, U2's crew did it, and I even try to believe U2 themselves does it. In the later case I'm talking about the 'Salome' outtakes and the two supposedly "stolen" fragments of the album 'Pop' which appeared on the internet, as we all know. This is a decent soundboard recording. The band does not put on a great concert, and they know it. Edge messes up during the "bridge" of "Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World " and the band messes up "Dancing Queen" and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" (Disc 2, Track 3). The bonus tracks are a nice addition. "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" (Disc 2, Track 14) is performed with the New Voices Of Freedom, and is the same version as the version on 'Rattle And Hum'.

Comments:
First off, let me say that I would STRONGLY recommend this set. While this CD set, on the surface, seems to be a copy of the bootleg ENJOY, I would have to disagree. I think the sound quality of these tracks is a bit superior to those found on ENJOY. This is definitely a complete, excellent set from The Joshua Tree Tour. It is one of the nights that was recorded for the film 'Rattle And Hum'. In fact, I am led to believe that it is taken directly from the video outtakes from 'Rattle And Hum' that have circulated for years. There is a slight hiss throughout the entire Denver tracks, but it is barely noticeable. The quality of the recording of the tracks more than compensates. Some would argue that this is superior to ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET. I would say that the quality of this recording is better-sounding than ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET, but the slight hiss and the fact that there are gaps (presumably crowd noise) between some of the tracks (and also in the middle of "October") make me feel otherwise. This is a bit annoying, but you can definitely live with it. To hear some of the slight flaws in this recording, one must don a pair of headphones. This is how I discovered a slight "rolling" sound present on some of the tracks (typical for bootlegs dubbed from a videotape). I would describe the transition between tracks as "choppy", with "stops" and "starts" like that of a "pause" button on a stereo. The package is alright, except for the fact that this is a Joshua Tree Tour bootleg, and the cover is from the 'Achtung Baby' era. Also, the track listing is incorrect for the bonus tracks on Disc 2 (Tracks 7-15). The ones listed above are correct. This set is most notable for the tracks "Helter Skelter", "Help", "Silver And Gold", and "Spanish Eyes", all in rich soundboard stereo. "Sunday Bloody Sunday" is the slow version, much like the one found on "Rattle And Hum", and "With Or Without You" has no added or extra verses tacked on at the end. "Mothers Of The Disappeared" is cut off at the end, but all of the Tempe, Arizona tracks on this set can be found on the bootleg 1-800-U2-LIVE with slightly better sound quality. The tracks from New York are widely-available on other bootlegs as well. All of the tracks are from video outtakes from 'Rattle And Hum'. In conclusion, let me say that this CD set has great sound, and makes a terrific companion set to ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET, which I feel is a bit superior. Bono is very talkative throughout this great performance. While the quality of this is not like that of 'ZOO EUROPA, it is still a great sounding bootleg from The Joshua Tree Tour. A wise investment, indeed.

Comments:
The sound quality of this bootleg is pretty bad. The music sounds super dull as if taped from a great distance away. After a few minutes one gets a bit used to it, but it stays very annoying. I suspect the audience noise may have been partially filtered out because the recording sound artificial. Bono shoutes "Action! Roll!" at the beginning of "Where The Streets Have No Name", hence the title. There's a noticeable edit between this song and "I Will Follow". Bono introduces "I Trip Through Your Wires" as a song "that says it all for me now". He talks about American music during the intro to "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", which he think is kind of a gospel song in its own way. "MLK" is dedicated to Martin Luther King. As common during this tour, snippets of "Gloria" are added to "Exit". "Help" is dedicated to Winnie Mandela and all the other people involved in the struggle against apartheid. While Bono invites a girl onstage to play the guitar, The Edge desperately tries to encourage the audience to sing the lines of "People Get Ready", but fails. Bono holds a weird speech about American campusses during "Bad", which doesn't include the usual snippets. At the end of "Bullet The Blue Sky" he talks about walking on the Syracuse campus and seeing a large building with the wind blowing through because of a rock and roll band playing inside. He explains that "Running To Stand Still" is a true story about some people he knew. A great version of "With Or Without You" includes the "We'll shine like stars"-part and is almost seven minutes long. The bonus tracks are from the second night at Madison Square Garden. They sound quite a bit better than the Syracuse tracks, but not great. Although tracks are left out, there are no noticeable edits between songs. "Running To Stand Still" is the tenth track on Disc 2, instead of "In God's Country" as printed on the back cover. Bono again talks about the two people he knew and whose story inspired the song. "With Or Without" doesn't feature any extra lines.
The cardboard package and the picture discs all look very nice, but don't let it fool you. The concert itself is great with a very talkative Bono, but the bad sound ruins it. It's a real pity. If you want a good Joshua Tree concert, buy ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET, JOSHUA TREE ON FIRE, LUCILLE or MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS instead.

Sound Quality:
Very good soundboard. There is some static on a few tracks (particularly "October") and some of the high frequencies are cut off slightly, however both are minor problems. The CD is still great to listen to. The bonus tracks are of good quality.

Comments:
The band puts on a great performance for Denver. During the set, Bono briefly mentions the Red Rocks show they played over 4 years ago. The bootleg claims the source was the November 8 show. See also MCNICHOL'S ARENA. As for the "bonus tracks", they are recordings (about 35 minutes worth) of Bono and Edge working on a song or two with acoustic guitars, with the "help" of Jimmy Iovine (not Daniel Lanois, as is claimed on the packaging). These recordings were pulled straight from one of the 'Rattle And Hum' outtakes videos. At the beginning of the session, they're listening to a tape of some U2 studio sessions, then they begin changing it around and experimenting. The song is "She's Gonna Blow Your House Down", which appears on the SALOME 'Achtung Baby' outtakes (Disc 2, Tracks 8,9,11). Edge begins playing "Van Diemen's Land", without lyrics, although it seems is if he hasn't quite finished it yet. All in all, a pretty interesting recording.

Comments:
First off, let me say that I would STRONGLY recommend this set. While this CD set, on the surface, seems to be a copy of the bootleg ENJOY, I would have to disagree. I think the sound quality of these tracks is a bit superior to those found on ENJOY. This is definitely a complete, excellent set from The Joshua Tree Tour. It is one of the nights that was recorded for the film 'Rattle And Hum'. In fact, I am led to believe that it is taken directly from the video outtakes from 'Rattle And Hum' that have circulated for years. There is a slight hiss throughout the entire Denver tracks, but it is barely noticeable. The quality of the recording of the tracks more than compensates. Some would argue that this is superior to ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET. I would say that the quality of this recording is better-sounding than ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET, but the slight hiss and the fact that there are gaps (presumably crowd noise) between some of the tracks (and also in the middle of "October") make me feel otherwise. This is a bit annoying, but you can definitely live with it. To hear some of the slight flaws in this recording, one must don a pair of headphones. This is how I discovered a slight "rolling" sound present on some of the tracks (typical for bootlegs dubbed from a videotape). I would describe the transition between tracks as "choppy", with "stops" and "starts" like that of a "pause" button on a stereo. The package is alright, except for the fact that this is a Joshua Tree Tour bootleg, and the cover is from the 'Achtung Baby' era. Also, the track listing is incorrect for the bonus tracks on Disc 2 (Tracks 7-15). The ones listed above are correct. This set is most notable for the tracks "Helter Skelter", "Help", "Silver And Gold", and "Spanish Eyes", all in rich soundboard stereo. "Sunday Bloody Sunday" is the slow version, much like the one found on "Rattle And Hum", and "With Or Without You" has no added or extra verses tacked on at the end. "Mothers Of The Disappeared" is cut off at the end, but all of the Tempe, Arizona tracks on this set can be found on the bootleg 1-800-U2-LIVE with slightly better sound quality. The tracks from New York are widely-available on other bootlegs as well. All of the tracks are from video outtakes from 'Rattle And Hum'. In conclusion, let me say that this CD set has great sound, and makes a terrific companion set to ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET, which I feel is a bit superior. Bono is very talkative throughout this great performance. While the quality of this is not like that of 'ZOO EUROPA, it is still a great sounding bootleg from The Joshua Tree Tour. A wise investment, indeed.

Comments:
This nicely documents U2's notorious 'Save The Yuppie' concert. A comparison between "All Along The Watchtower" on this disc, and the "finished" version on the 'Rattle And Hum' album, reveal that some post production took place. The 'Rattle And Hum' version has an edit out of the middle of the song, as well as an added guitar into. Bono actually spray painted the fountain during "Pride (In The Name Of Love)", not during "All Along The Watchtower" as was implied in the 'Rattle And Hum' film. See also: ROCK & ROLL STOP THE TRAFFIC.

Same as ROCK & ROLL STOP THE TRAFFIC. A fantastic CD. Great packaging, great sound, and a combination of unique performances. Keith Richards appears on Tracks 15 and 16. Ziggy Marley appears on track 16. "C'mon Everybody" fades out about half way through the song. A good investment, if you can find it, from the now-defunct Australian Applehouse family (Joker and Banana).

This is the best U2 bootleg that I have. It is almost the same as MORE POLITICS, but this one actually has "The Star Spangled Banner" and "Bullet The Blue Sky" on it. I searched long and hard for it and felt well-rewarded. The New Year's concert was enough but adding the "Save The Yuppies" show is a true bonus. A treasure.

Sound Quality::
Disc 2, Disc 2 (1-5): Excellent broadcast.

Comments:
Arguably, the best U2 concert bootleg in terms of sound quality and show content. The show begins with David Fanning broadcasting from the show and introducing U2 as "...the band who started in this city 10 years ago and the band who's dominated the 80's. It's a New Year's party and the live band is U2!" amidst great fanfare from the cheering audience. A quick fade which edits out the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" and Fanning counts down the last seconds until midnight as bells ring and Bono sings a few lines of "Auld Land Syne" during the intro to "Where The Streets Have No Name". Although the set list is somewhat routine for The Lovetown Tour, powerful versions of "Where The Streets have No Name ", "I Will Follow", "One Tree Hill", and "New Year's Day" are performed. Many highlights include the first few lines of "All I Want Is You" perfectly segueing into "Bad". The sound mix for this show is actually better then the original broadcast of the show which leads to the possible conclusion that the recording is from the master tape of the show. The second disc is filled out with the complete "Save The Yuppies" free concert from San Francisco on November 11, 1987. The source is an excellent audience tape. I do not know if this particular recording has been used as the source for other discs such as HAPPY NEW YEAR, which this package reportedly is identical to in sound and sources. The 2CD set is enclosed in a double CD jewel case with somewhat dark photo of the band from 'The Joshua Tree' era on the cover and a small folded insert illustrated with several color and black and white photos and a reproduction of the ticket from that night's show plus the track listing. My only (very minor) quibbles are the tiny type used for the track listings on the back cover over a color photo of The Edge which is nearly impossible to read and the over-zealous indexing of songs. When this set was released in 1992, ICE Magazine which reports on new CD bootlegs in a column entitled 'Going Underground' that this bootleg would rate in the "top ten bootleg hall of fame". There is no label information on this 2CD set but there are two prints with different CDs. The first issue was with "2 IRISH ON TOUR" printed on the CDs, and the second print was printed with "GoGo Rose Garden Here Again" on the CDs.
This is one of two of the original pressings on this label.

Very good recording, but not excellent. This was recorded at the "Save The Yuppies" free concert in San Francisco, as seen in the movie, 'Rattle And Hum'. Pride (In The Name Of Love) is extended because Bono takes that little trip to do some spraypainting. You learn how Bono manages to run and sing at the same time as shown in the film version of 'Rattle And Hum'. The unique thing about this bootleg is that it has a real "outdoor" feel that is fun, much like a concert at your local park. Bono entertains with a "telethon" kinda theme. This is a Japanese bootleg.

Sound Quality:

Comments:
The setlist is pretty standard for a Joshua Tree concert, but the band were obviously in good shape. The Edge's guitar fails in the middle of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For". While he fixes the problem, Bono and Adam keep on going which results in an interesting version of the song. At the beginning of "Out Of Control" Bono introduces René Castro and his group of artists, who then come onstage to spray-paint the backdrop. "Exit" sounds haunting with Adam's heavy bass, and features snippets of The Door's "Riders On The Storm" as well as Van Morrisson's "Gloria". The song sequences right into a very short version of "Silver And Gold". As usual, someone comes onstage to play the guitar on "People Get Ready". Afterwards the guy seems to have problems getting off the stage since Bono has to show him the way back into the audience. "Help" is sung a capella and "Bad" has snippets of Lou Reed's "Walk On The Wild Side". "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" is dedicated to another of the peace-makers, Martin Luther King. During "Bullet The Blue Sky", Bono speaks about San Francisco's art district where he met René Castro. Tonight's performance of "Running To Stand Still" is very emotional, with Bono explaining about the two Dubliners whose true story this song is based upon. "Stand By Me" is played in its entirety, which is very rare. Usually it's only a short version to open a concert. During the song, Bono asks for a few good character references from the audience members since he's scared about going to court over the graffiti-incident. Luckily it never happened. Before "40" Bono holds a lengthy speech about people who disappeared in Central and South America. At one point he gets very angry at an audience member and swears at him, but apologises directly afterwards. It puts a bit of a damper on the end of a good show.
This is one of two original pressings on this label.

Sound quality-wise this is one of the best Joshua Tree bootlegs around. The concert itself is very good too. Too bad Bono can't shut up about the graffiti-incident which happened at the Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco only four days earlier.
There are a lot of errors in the track listing. "A Trip Thru Your Wire" should be "Trip Through Your Wires", "Out Of Control" is mislabeled as "Into The Heart" and "Running Or Without You" is in fact "Running To Stand Still".

Comments:
First off, on the down side of this recording, there are some slight skips during the performance of "Bad." It is obvious (from the date of the concert and from the performance of "Helter Skelter") one of the possible shows cut from the Rattle & Hum movie. It is a high-energy concert with several highlights. It is a very good addition for those U2 collectors out there. Some of the highlights of the show include Bono talking about hearing the New Voices of Freedom perform "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" in the small, Harlem church. Another highlight of this show is Bono making harsh statements about former President Ronald Reagan. During his infamous "dictation" in "Bullet The Blue Sky," Bono says, "What's this I hear about a peace plan in Central America? Yeah, that sounds like it's got a lot of common sense going for it. Yeah, no problem. What do you mean, there is a problem? What's the problem? Ronald Reagan's the problem... that's the problem." The crowd cheers a bit here. Bono continues, "Well, listen Ronald Reagan, I think the people of America like it just where they are... I don't think they want to move to El Salvador or Nicaragua. They like it here! So, tell you what, I got a good idea: why don't we let the Nicaraguans look after Nicaragua, we let the El Salvadorians out after El Salvador, and the people of Los Angeles and the people of the United States will look after that. Hey!" The crowd goes balistic. Also, Bono adds about 4 extra lines at the end of "Running To Stand Still" that I have never heard before, and I have listened to a lot of U2 bootlegs.

Comments:
First of all, the title LIVE AND DEMOS FROM 1978-1986 is incorrect. This is the entire show (with "Bad" repeated on Disc 2) for Los Angeles on November 18, 1987. I was confused at first because Bono mentions Oakland Coliseum during "Bad" (maybe he forgot where he was), but the references to the balloons that he let go during the song while saying, "Just let it go..." matched the reference to this show in the book "U2 Live: A Concert Documentary". Disc 2, Track 10 is performed with Bruce Springsteen on vocals and guitar and is from the September 25, 1987 show at JFK Stadium in Philadelphia, PA.

Comments:
The inside of the cover has color photos of the band in concert, propably from the show or one of The Joshua Tree Tour shows. The CD also contains the Spanish version of "Mother's Of The Disappeared". This is the sixth time "Mothers Of The Disappeared" is played and not the second (although Bono says so). Bono has a great time instructing the crowd what to sing. He also adds a couple of lines from "Drowning Man" as part of his ad-lib. [According to Pimm Jal de la Parra's 'U2 Live- A Concert Documentary', this is definitely the December 19th show. On the other hand, this version of "With Or Without You" is, as far as I can tell, the same as the version that appeared in the 'Rattle And Hum' movie, which was claimed to have been recorded on the 20th. At least this lays to rest claims that the Rattle And Hum version was not really live].

Comments:
[Simon Wenmouth]: (Tracks 1-6) A great recording taken, I assume, from a television broadcast -- track one fades in to an excited commentator and screaming crowd "Are you having a good time? ... everybody in Ireland is watching you!". Assuming U2 are the headliners (as they should be) Bono's starting comments are quite puzzling: "I think we've only got 15 minutes so we'd better make this quick". They quickly start an energetic performance of "C'mon Everybody". Before an acoustic rendition of "Sunday Bloody Sunday" Bono makes a patriotic speech on the unemployment situation (I assume was quite bad at the time). After "Sunday Bloody Sunday" the CD cuts to later in the performance and [Bob Dylans] "Maggies Farm". Bono gets a little over excited and at the end trails into "Old MacDonald had a Farm" (oh dear) before returning to the original song to Edges guitar distortions. This is where the performance would have ended but "the man back there says they can do one more". They play "Bad/Walk On The Wild Side". (Tracks 7-14) "Bad/Walk On The Wild Side" cuts (quite annoyingly) straight to the the second performance and a short (but nice) "MLK". The crowd sound close but don't overshadow the music so this was probably taken off the soundboard. A slight hiss is apparent on these tracks, but is almost unnoticable. Little Steven and then Lou Reed are guests on "Sun City". The set ends and then it cuts to [another Bob Dylan song] and "I shall be released" is played with Sting as guest. Whether this is a encore, which would explain the cut between tracks, I am not sure. (Bonus tracks 15-16) Keith Richards provides his guitar (and vocal) talent (?) on "When Love Comes Town". Bono introduces Ziggy Marley on vocals in "Love Comes To Town". The inside cover gives us a nice (but poor quality) colour picture of messers Bono, Edge and Richards. The front cover is a dark picture of Bono at the microphone, the back cover being individual colour pictures of the group (including one with Edge in a slighly muddy/rusty white shirt :O)). Also, strangely, behind the CD mount there's a picture of Bono being less than photogenic, (who, in my opinion, looks an odd Bill Murray). Unlike the inside cover the other photos are of good quality.
[Steve]: This bootlegs combines three concerts that were simultaneously broadcast on radio and television: "Self Aid", "Conspiracy Of Hope finale" and "Smile Jamaica", all three of them charity gigs. The sound's good throughout, although The Edge's guitar seems to be a little off during some of the "Self Aid" tracks. Also, the audience is very loud during the "Conspiracy Of Hope" performance and some shrieking can be heard. The "Smile Jamaica" songs on the other hand are of excellent sound quality. The disc starts with Dave Fanning introducing the band to the Dublin audience. They open the show with "C'Mon Everybody", a song they've only covered a few times. Before "Sunday Bloody Sunday" Bono talks about being in a rock and roll band and now knowing what it's like to be out of work, unlike a lot of the people in the audience. There's a noticeable edit between "Sunday Bloody Sunday" and "Maggie's Farm". During the latter Bono sings about Ireland's unemployment, the Chernobyl nuclear disaster and Dublin's drug problems, incorporating some lines from "Cold Turkey". The show ends with a short, but great version of "Bad", which includes snippets of "Walk On The Walk Side". "MLK" is very short, only lasting a little over a minute and "Bad" is played early in the set. Bono doesn't talk nearly as much as during "Self Aid". The crowd sing along fanatically to "Help". "Sun City" sounds fantastic with Little Steven, Nona Hendrix, Ruben Blades and Lou Reed all singing along with Bono. "I Shall Be Released" is the night's finale, with everyone who performed that night being onstage. U2 played four songs on "Smile Jamaica", but only "When Love Comes To Town" and "Love Rescue Me" are on this bootleg. The latter - with Ziggy Marley - can also be found on U2's "Angel Of Harlem" single. Keith Richards plays along on both tracks. This disc offers a great taste of U2's charity appearances in the 80s, with some rare performances of "C'Mon Everybody", "Maggie's Farm" and "Invisible Sun". The only downside is that most of the "Self Aid" and "Conspiracy Of Hope" songs are the same.

Comments:
Disc 1 through Track 3 of Disc 2 labeled "The Unforgettable Fire Tour". Tracks 4 through 6 of Disc 2 labeled "The Amnesty International Tour". Disc 2, Track 7 through Disc 3, Track 10 labeled "The Joshua Tree Tour". Tracks 11 through 15 on Disc 3 labeled "Impromptu Tour". Worth every penny I paid. The sound quality on most of these tracks is amazing. This boxed set is basically a combination of ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET (Chicago) and THE UNFORGETTABLE NIGHT (see those for their respective reviews) as well as parts of ROCK & ROLL STOP THE TRAFFIC and RAIN ON YOU. Check out all of these reviews to get an idea on this one. Overall, this bootleg arguably has the best sounding and performance of tours from the 'The Unforgettable Fire' and 'The Joshua Tree' eras. "October", "Gloria" and "40" have been omitted from the Chicago performance (most likely due to lack of disc space). Bono goes into "Do They Know It's Christmas?" during "40". The Chicago performance of "With Or Without You" includes the extra verse and a snippet of Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart". "Love Rescue Me" is the same performance as the one on the "Angel of Harlem" CD Single. Each CD is in its own jewel box. The booklets have the same cover but inside each one are different pictures of the band. The box cover shows the actual Joshua Tree in a purple and red atmospheric background (kind of like 'The Joshua Tree' meets 'The Unforgettable Fire'). My copy will not be for sale anytime soon. Not to be confused with KEEPING THE FAITH VOLUMES 1 & 2. This is the second of four boxed sets in the Flying Tigers series, comprising THE NEW WORD - VOL. 1, KEEPING THE FAITH - VOL. 2, THE FLY - VOL. 3, and RARE TRACKS - VOL. 4.
This is the original pressing on this label.

Sound Quality:

Comments:
The band was in fine form this night; it seems as if Bono had something to prove after canceling shows in Sydney a week earlier. In fact, Bono was so hyped up that he tumbled off the stage during "I Will Follow." The show itself is only let down by a few edits at the beginning of "Where The Streets Have No Name," "Bad," and at the end of "40," but otherwise, it is a good offering. The band performed almost all the 'Rattle And Hum' material they would ever do, including "God Part 2," "All I Want Is You," "All Along The Watchtower," "Angel Of Harlem," "Love Rescue Me," and "When Love Comes To Town." As an added bonus, Edge also performed "Van Diemen's" Land and Bono inserted snippets of "Norwegian Wood," "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away," and "Walk On The Wild Side" into "Bad." The bootlegger has also added a few extra tracks from the Sydney show one month later. This includes a brilliant performance of "Hawkmoon 269," which was only played on this leg of the tour. This tour remains the last one they undertook before the band totally overhauled itself and re-invented itself with 'Achtung Baby' and Zoo TV. Contains the entire Adelaide show, from a soundboard tape. Bear in mind that Bono was having voice problems during the Adelaide show, especially evidenced during "Bad" where he loses his voice, coughs and apologizes for having no vocal range. Disc 2, Tracks 3-5, 10 and 11 feature BB King and his band. Disc 2 Tracks 8-11 were taken from the an Australian Lovetown special. Additional comments and info needed on this bootleg.

Comments:
Disc 1: The Red Rockers appear on Track 15. "Bad" was played after "A Sort Of Homecoming", but has been edited out. "Gloria" was played (again) after "40", but it too has been edited out. These edits were probably made in order to allow this performance to fit onto one disc. The CD itself is a picture disc. This CD is also sold separately. See also: FOUR AT FOUR, and PEACE UNDER A CHICAGO SKY.

Disc 2: This is a picture disc CD. It is also available separately.

Comments:
First and foremost, don't waste you cash on this one, kids. I payed $35 for this back in 1992, and it was not worth it. All you can hear is a muffled Bono (a result of laryngitis and bad microphone) and the audience's stomping and clapping; hence, the name "feel the noise." Edge's guitars are completely absent. The only thing I really liked about this bootleg was the tracklisting. It captures U2 at their peak and live - the best way to experience them. This CD is the same as WHEN U2 COMES TO TOWN. The disc itself features a picture of Bono holding the microphone, with his arms raised over his head. B.B. King appears on Tracks 12-14. The cover incorrectly lists the source as "Du Kuippe Arena, Rotterdam, 1989."

Sound Quality :
Good audience.

Comments:
Only a limited number of copies of this bootleg exist. A decent recording with a noisy audience. This is from the Love Town tour that followed the release of 'Rattle And Hum.' "Hawkmoon 269" contains a nasty edit about two minutes in. This is unfortunate, because this song is only performed a few times on this tour. It is followed by three more 'Rattle And Hum' songs. The crowd are clearly "into" the show; clapping and singing along. The band are in good form, even joking when they mess up at the beginning of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For." During "God Part II," Bono's voice gives out. He misses a verse, but then sings it again, screaming. He croaks out "Help" and has the audience sing the second verse. He attempts "Bad," but skips the high notes. He leaves the Edge to sing "Van Dieman's Land." Bono returns and attempts a couple of more songs, allowing the audience to pick up the slack, but his voice is shot. As a result of Bono's voice problems, the show ended prematurely. During the encore, only "40" is played, leaving the B.B. King section out. The disc ends with the promoter telling the audience to hang onto their tickets. The next two concerts, which were planned for the next two nights, were postponed until January, 1990. The CD has nice cover art, with some official photos taken from The Love Town Tour book and on the inlay, a picture of a ticket to this show is printed. A nice bootleg after all, covering the whole show. It will be very hard (if not impossible) to find though.

Comments:
Indeed a worthwhile effort by all collaborators on this one! Disc 1 is an exceptional take. The highly energized opening of "Sympathy For The Devil" and "God Part II" sets the pace for the first three songs (very good live versions of each one too!). The pace slows a little as U2 goes into "All I Want Is You", "Where The Streets Have No Name", and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", but the atmosphere is perfectly created. "Where The Streets Have No Name" was dedicated to Samuel Beckett, who passed away that week. Bono says, "It's kind of sad he never made it home, but he dreamt of other lands, of another home, Where The Streets Have No Name." Then, in " I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", Bono says (of playing back in Dublin), "We've been playing in all these BIG places, so we thought we like to play a small place again...It's nice to be home." Disc 2 begins with the continuation of the Point Depot concerts. Tracks 1-5 are the "post-card" to the European nations, as Bono wishes Czechoslovakia, Romania, Germany, etc.. a very happy new year. The tempo speeds up again as the highly charged "New Year's Day" takes the stage. This was the concert that was broadcast live to Eastern and Western Europe, so undoubtedly the emotional implications of the ending cold-war heightened the adrenaline flowing through Bono's veins at this point. Tracks 6-8 are a cut from some leg of the ZOO TV Tour. Not much to say here other than U2 did an interesting combination of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" with "Stand By Me". Tracks 9-14 are from the worldwide broadcast of the August 28, 1993 from Dublin, Ireland. It continues on Disc 3. Nothing new as far as the Zooropa Tour goes. If you've heard these songs as part of their tour before, you've heard them on this disc. The sound quality is quite exceptional for a bootleg, with very little interference or that sort from the audience. In all, I would highly recommend this set to anyone who can get their hands on it. It was a little pricey if I can remember right, somewhere around $90CA, but worth it. The only downside is that there are no liner notes. There are only a few pictures (some of which aren't bad) that have been collected throughout the tours. Enjoy!

Comments:
Excellent sound quality. Bono speaks of the death of Samuel Beckett often. There is a couple of errors on the tracklisting. "Where The Streets Have No Name" is listed as "Where The Streets Have No Nan," and apparently Larry is the bassist and Adam is the drummer. I am glad I bought it. ST. STEPHENS AT THE POINT is a better choice to get, I guess, because it's got more songs (even though it's not the entire concert). "Love Rescue Me" (which is missing from ST. STEPHENS AT THE POINT) can be found on this bootleg. X-MAS AT POINT DEPOT (which is also available on Banana Records' DESIRE VOL. 1 and DESIRE VOL. 2) is the most complete recording of the December 26, 1989 concert. It contains all of the tracks on every other December 26, 1989 concert listed in FLOM, as well as "Love Rescue Me" and the "Intro" ("Sympathy For The Devil." ST. STEPHENS AT THE POINT starts with a few seconds into "God Part II." This is the original pressing on this label.

Comments:
I would highly recommend this set for those who love the 'Rattle And Hum' era of U2. Songs like "God Part II", "All I Want Is You", "Van Diemen's Land" and "When Love Comes To Town" were performed rarely and this CD provides excellent versions of these songs. Of particular interest is how powerful Bono's voice is on this boot! He seems to have been on some sort of "throat steroid!" His range is fantastic and this is possibly the richest I've ever heard his voice! As for the other members of U2, they are spectacular as always. One can see The Edge start ripping into some songs, showing signs of the brilliance that he had throughout the ZOO TV shows. It is well known that U2 become even more powerful when they perform in their hometown. The reason that I personally purchased this CD was for the live version of "One Tree Hill", a 'Joshua Tree' song also infrequently performed. Bono's powerful vocals make this song even more passionate that the album version. Plus, there is a tremendous ending to this song, one that significantly contrasts the album. As for the overall sound quality, it varies at times, which is a bit strange since it is one show recorded at the same time. Disc 1 begins as U2 are already singing God Part II. Not much of the song is cut off, but we can't hear the song from the very beginning. Aside from this rather minor irritation, the crowd noise is minimal on Disc 1 and the sound quality overall is fantastic. The crowd was really into U2 that night and it almost gave me chills as I heard them beautifully sing along to the songs. Disc 2 is where the problems begin. Suddenly the sound quality seems to have dropped. Perhaps a different recorder was used for this portion of the show. No longer is the sound as crisp and clear as it was in Disc 1. This doesn't mean that the sound is terrible, just not quite as good as Disc 1. Of particular interest on Disc 2 is the version of "When Love Comes to Town" which features B.B. King. B.B. King and his ensemble are also featured on "Angel Of Harlem". There is also a point on this disc where the audience sings "Que Sera Sera" (the Doris Day song) after U2 end their "regular show" (after "Pride (In The Name Of Love)"). That was unusual, to say the least, since the audience appeared to do this all on their own. The CD beautifully ends with the audience singing "40". This is the one time that I actually enjoyed the "crowd noise". Overall I would recommend this CD. However, the amount of music is a mere 87:40 for the two discs. Some CDs I've seen have almost 70 minutes on one disc alone! But the sound quality and the semi-rare 'Rattle And Hum' songs make this a great addition to anyone's collection. "Love Rescue Me" is missing from this bootleg. X-MAS AT POINT DEPOT (which is also available on Banana Records' DESIRE VOL. 1 and DESIRE VOL. 2) is the most complete recording of the December 26, 1989 concert. It contains all of the tracks on every other December 26, 1989 concert listed in FLOM, as well as "Love Rescue Me" and the "Intro" ("Sympathy For The Devil." ST.

B.B. King appears on Disc 2, Tracks 3-5. The first track on Disc 1 is The Rolling Stones' "Sympathy For The Devil", playing over the PA system, while the crowd await U2 to take the stage. This concert is also available on KTS Records' ST STEPHEN'S AT THE POINT, and in an edited form on Beech Marten Records' SANTA CLAUSE IS COMING TO TOWN. X-MAS AT THE POINT DEPOT (which is also available on Banana Records' DESIRE VOL. 1 and DESIRE VOL. 2) is the most complete recording of the December 26, 1989 concert.

STEPHENS AT THE POINT starts with a few seconds into "God Part II." Of some interest is the fact that Bono makes mention of the recent death of Samuel Beckett (a native Dubliner who left the country and wrote, among other things, 'Waiting For Godot' and 'Endgame,') before "Love Rescue Me." During another track, he quickly recites some poetry, presumably by Beckett, as well. At 1:59 on track 2, Disc 1 (God Part II) a fair amount of
distortion/feedback can be heard and lasts until approximately 2:00/2:01. This recording is not flawless. Also, there seems the be a sound/source dropoff during the beginning of Bullet the Blue Sky.

Sound Quality:
Excellent soundboard.

Comments:
B.B. King appears on Disc 2, Tracks 6, 7, and 8. Maria McKee of Lone Justice appears on "People Get Ready". This is a fantastic performance, despite Bono's suffering from throat problems. "They have some pretty psychedelic germs in Australia. They're having their Annual General Meeting in my throat. If my voice is not too strong, yours is."

This is one of two of the original pressings on this label.

10. With Or Without You [6:00]

Source:
December 30, 1989. Dublin, Ireland. The Point Depot.

Sound Quality:
Excellent soundboard. Track 2 of Disc 1 suffers from substantial distortion and occasional dropouts. During Out of Control at 2:37, it seems as though someone held down the fastfoward button, then released it (the word "opinion"sounds like it's being hiccuped or `rapped'). Also during Love Rescue me at 1:34 the sound is lost completely for a brief instance (this error seems somewhat similar to what occurs at 2:37 during Out of Control). At any rate, the prevailing notion that the only error occurs during "Bullet the Blue Sky"--and that the rest of the recording is flawless is incorrect. I think these errors should be mentioned in the review since many fans could be mislead to think that the people they are trading with made errors while recording this show.

Comments:
This set captures the third night of The Point Depot shows in all it's splendor. Most notable on this bootleg are the soundboard recordings of "She's A Mystery To Me" (incorrectly labeled "Mystery Girl"), "All I Want Is You", and "11 O'Clock Tick Tock". The excellent version of "With Or Without You" interspersed with "Love Will Tear Us Apart" is not to be missed either! This is believed to be the only widely-available bootleg of this concert and is highly recommended to anyone who has the opportunity to obtain it. Tracks 6-8 performed with B.B. King.

Sound Quality:

Comments:
Same as Disc 1 of AT THE ELEVENTH HOUR, except that this CD sounds like it is nothing but treble. The bass on this disc is extremely low, but a good equalizer should remedy the problem. This CD captures the third night of The Point Depot series in all its splendor. This is a good choice for those who cannot find AT THE ELEVENTH HOUR, if you can put up with the annoying sound, or use an equalizer. The second half of the performance is on Banana's PRIDE VOL. 4. A good investment, if you can find it, from the now-defunct Australian Applehouse family (Joker and Banana).

Most of the songs appear in the wrong order than they were actually performed, and some tracks are omitted. The sound is also very bassy.

Comments:
Some tracks from a typical Lovetown show combined with some tracks from the Zoo TV Tour. Overall, the mix is pretty good. I would only buy this bootleg if it is cheap!

B.B. King appears on Tracks 7-9 on Disc 2. "The Star Spangled Banner" and "Bullet The Blue Sky" were played but are missing. They should be after Track1, Disc 2, and the tape glitches from the edit are quite audible. The Disc 1 is labeled as including "Van Diemen's Land", but it is on Disc 2. Disc 1 is indexed for 11 tracks, but Track 10 is only ten seconds of the crowd, and Track 11 contains both "All I Want Is You" and "Bad". At the very end of "Bad", the music "skips" very much the way a skip sounds on vinyl.

Comments:
This is the best U2 bootleg that I have. It is almost the same as MORE POLITICS, but this one actually has "The Star Spangled Banner" and "Bullet The Blue Sky" on it. I searched long and hard for it and felt well-rewarded. The New Year's concert was enough but adding the "Save The Yuppies" show is a true bonus. A treasure.

Sound Quality:
Good broadcast.

Comments:
There are better sounding audience recordings than this one. The master used to make this disc is not the same as the ones used to make the other December 31, 1989 shows. It sounds like a bad monitor mix rather than a clean out from a board. Yes, this is the fabled New Year's Eve Dublin show. The first song contains the countdown, but the intro has been shortened, so "Where The Streets Have No Name" is about 7 minutes long. A reprint of a great, but currently otherwise unavailable show, but apparently missing "The Star Spangled Banner" and "Bullet The Blue Sky." The best version of this concert can be found on such bootlegs as Templar's HAPPY NEW YEAR, which contains the missing "The Star Spangled Banner" and "Bullet The Blue Sky." Anyone who thinks that the current PopMart tour has any relevance or merit needs to listen to "Van Dieman's Land" from this show. While U2 may have already passed their peak when this was recorded, they were still a band you could trust. The CD comes housed in a slimline double jewel case with a 4-panel insert and tray card.
This is the original pressing on this label.

Comments:
Similar to "The New Year's Concert", with the same cover (different texts, of course!), tracklisting, matrix and barcode. There are some mistakes in tracklisting: One Tree Hill is called "One Three Hill", Running To Stand Still is claimed to be Trad. Arr. by U2 and "40" is called "Sing A New Song". Although I haven't got "The New Year's Concert", I believe that this is exactly the same thing

Sound Quality::
Disc 2, Disc 2 (1-5): Excellent broadcast.

Comments:
Arguably, the best U2 concert bootleg in terms of sound quality and show content. The show begins with David Fanning broadcasting from the show and introducing U2 as "...the band who started in this city 10 years ago and the band who's dominated the 80's. It's a New Year's party and the live band is U2!" amidst great fanfare from the cheering audience. A quick fade which edits out the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" and Fanning counts down the last seconds until midnight as bells ring and Bono sings a few lines of "Auld Land Syne" during the intro to "Where The Streets Have No Name". Although the set list is somewhat routine for The Lovetown Tour, powerful versions of "Where The Streets have No Name ", "I Will Follow", "One Tree Hill", and "New Year's Day" are performed. Many highlights include the first few lines of "All I Want Is You" perfectly segueing into "Bad". The sound mix for this show is actually better then the original broadcast of the show which leads to the possible conclusion that the recording is from the master tape of the show. The second disc is filled out with the complete "Save The Yuppies" free concert from San Francisco on November 11, 1987. The source is an excellent audience tape. I do not know if this particular recording has been used as the source for other discs such as HAPPY NEW YEAR, which this package reportedly is identical to in sound and sources. The 2CD set is enclosed in a double CD jewel case with somewhat dark photo of the band from 'The Joshua Tree' era on the cover and a small folded insert illustrated with several color and black and white photos and a reproduction of the ticket from that night's show plus the track listing. My only (very minor) quibbles are the tiny type used for the track listings on the back cover over a color photo of The Edge which is nearly impossible to read and the over-zealous indexing of songs. When this set was released in 1992, ICE Magazine which reports on new CD bootlegs in a column entitled 'Going Underground' that this bootleg would rate in the "top ten bootleg hall of fame". There is no label information on this 2CD set but there are two prints with different CDs. The first issue was with "2 IRISH ON TOUR" printed on the CDs, and the second print was printed with "GoGo Rose Garden Here Again" on the CDs.
This is one of two of the original pressings on this label.

Sound Quality:
Excellent audience. Most of the bonus tracks are very good audience.

Comments:
This bootleg nicely documents the final dates of The Lovetown Tour, featuring the last performance in its entirety and a generous selection of bonus tracks from other dates. The worst-recorded track on this bootleg is easily "Hawkmoon 269", but it's an interesting performance, with The Edge playing a slide-guitar intro. The booklet is pretty minimal, but contains a listing of all the Lovetown Tour dates. B.B. King appears on Tracks 14-16. It should be noted that this was the last concert U2 ever ended with "40". These recordings have also been released in the same form on ROTTERDAM, on the Golden Stars and Live Storm labels, and on Pluto's PRIDE and GLORIA. It is probably worth mentioning that there is significant audience noise throughout the entire show. Although you're not listening to just a few people singing along, you can hear the whole crowd singing along to most songs. It does not detract from the band, though.

This is the same exact recording as Pluto's GLORIA and Disc 2 of Red Phantom's ALL I WANT IS U2, Golden Star's ROTTERDAM, and ROTTERDAM CONNECTION. The only problem with this disc is that it is not indexed, leaving one continuous long track. Also, it is sold as a single disc, so if you would like the beginning of the concert, you would have to buy U2 LIVE VOL. 5 as well. With all this in mind, this CD still features a fantastic concert, and the sound is superior to most audience recordings out there. A wise buy.

Comments:
This CD is exactly the same as Red Phantom's ALL I WANT IS U2, Golden Stars' ROTTERDAMl, and on Pluto's PRIDE and GLORIA. The packaging is not very good. It has a waterfall on the cover and a huge Live Storm logo inside the booklet. One plus though: it was cheaper than most others when I bought it and the sound quality is excellent. Definitely get a copy of this show though, preferably Red Phanton's ALL I WANT IS U2.

Sound Quality:
Excellent audience.

Comments:
The cover says that it was recorded by "Fuzzy Microphone Mobile Studios" whoever that might be. The entire show uninterrupted by stoppage in the tape. All of the pauses between songs are as they actually happened. Of the three concert CD bootlegs that I have spent money on, this one has the best sound quality, with the exception of the first 3 songs ( the recorder didn't have the right levels set). Crowd noise, although evident, is not louder than the music. Great performances of "With or Without You", "Where The Streets Have No Name", "Bad", "Bullet The Blue Sky", "One", "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", and others. The sound quality on the first few songs is not great. "Love Is Blindness" fades after only two minutes. The soundcheck stuff is interesting but the sound quality is not that great. Other than that, I really don't have many complaints. It's always a pleasant surprise to come across a bootleg with good sound.

Comments:
The first night of the Zoo TV tour introduced the world to U2's new stage show. The bans sound good and charge out of the gate with eight songs from their new 'Achtung Baby' album. Following this segment, U2 would go out to the mini stage and perform an acoustic "Angel Of Harlem." Disc 2 opens with "Satellite of Love." This is followed by "Bad," which ends with a verse of "All I Want Is You." The show ended with "Love is Blindness," which for some reason is not included on this bootleg. A good show, especially for the opening night of a tour. "Satellite Of Love" is played despite not being listed on the packaging. See also: THE FIRST NIGHT OF THE 1992 WORLD TOUR. Housed in a double (thick) jewel case. This features photos from the Joshua Tree and Lovetown eras on the cover and also on the picture CDs.

Comments:
This was the second show of the ZOO TV tour and it is noticeable. In the intro of "Even Better Than The Real Thing" the rest of the band doesn't get the cues of The Edge. During "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses" the band again needs some cues, this time from Bono. And during "Where The Streets Have No Name", Bono gets a bit mixed up with the words. Apart from these minor faults this is a good, complete concert from the beginning of the ZOO TV Tour. This bootleg has good sound quality, but in the beginning of "Zoo Station" the right level still has to be found, which is good before the ending of the song. The CD does also start halfway the intro sung by Bono, but this isn't very annoying. "Mysterious Ways" has a beautiful intro with Bono improvising and it showed the premiere of Christina, the belly dancer. "One" is dedicated to the Russian cosmonaut in orbit. "Satellite Of Love" is done in a longer version which contains the verses of the second part of the song. "Bullet The Blue Sky" has some alternate lyrics to comment about the overwhelming response for tickets. Finally, the first two verses of "Love Is Blindness" aren't sung, but spoken. The CD has nice packaging, although not U2-specific. Some errors are made in the track listing ("All I Want Is You" isn't mentioned) but everythign else looks acceptable. This isn't the quintessential ZOO TV recording, but it is nice to compare this early concert with concert at the end of the tour.

Comments:
Let me start by saying that I only bought this one because it was only $20 and my girlfriend went to this show! On some tracks, you can hear her friend screaming and boy was she surprised to hear it. The packaging is okay. A picture of Bono on the back and a Trabant on the front. It is a cardboard box with the CDs set back inside of it. A good show, but far inferior to many other indoor ones. The cover of this CD incorrectly lists this concert as being recorded at the March 15, 1992 concert at the Providence, RI Civic Center, so be extra careful when buying this.

Comments:
The Miami parts of the discs are the same as WELCOME TO ZOO TV. Bob Dylan joins U2 for "I Shall Be Released" and "Knockin' on Heaven's Door". Tracks 12 and 13 of Disc 2 are not done by U2, but they have Bono singing backed by an all star band consisting of: Dylan, Carlos Santana, Mick Taylor, Ian MacLagan, Greg Sutton, Collin Allen, Leslie Dowdell. Both Dylan and Bono take turns singing lead. The packing of this set is far superior to WELCOME TO ZOO TV. The CDs are in a box, along with a 12 page booklet and a color poster. Inside the booklet, there is a commentary about the show in Miami in both English and Italian and numerous pictures from the ZOO TV Tour. Unlike the "crunched" style of WELCOME TO ZOO TV, the CDs come with two separate jewel cases. Yeah! Both CDs are picture discs, showing a map of Southern Florida and the cars which were used as props during the tour. Quite a wonderful box set, and the first bootleg I ever bought. It cost about $48 back in 1992. The quality, in retrospect, lacks compared to the DAT tapes that I now trade. The mics at the show sound like they were not of the high end (Shoeps or Neumann's) but did give a wonderful insight into a band that I loved at the time. I don't think that I have listened to the CDs (until today) in over a year.

During "The Fly", Bono says, "Achtung Georgia." During "Even Better Than The Real Thing", Bono says, "Check out that suit... Wooo." Before "Pride (In The Name Of Love)", Bono says, "This is your town. Can you turn it around? Turn it around." During "Pride (In The Name Of Love)", Martin Luther King's speech is "muffled", and after it Bono says, "Good night, God Bless You." Before "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses", Bono says, "Rock and Roll. Can't live with it, can't live without it." During "Bullet The Blue Sky", Bono yells, "Outside is America. Watch him America. Watch your children, America. Shut the fuck up. Shut the fuck up. Shut the fuck up. Shut the fuck up." During "Where The Streets Have No Name", Bono sings "Georgia's no Rain."

Comments:
This is a nice single CD containing most of the concert. In my opinion, Bono puts on a strong performance, but as noted above a noticeable echo does exist on the CD. Crowd noise is pretty low throughout the CD. Of perhaps special note is that "Angel Of Harlem" is completely acoustic. The track listing on the back of the CD is inaccurate. It lists "Surrender" instead of "Bad" and "The Zoo" instead of "Zoo Station."

Sound Quality:
Fair audience.

Comments:
Bono makes many references to New York and even mentions the "support act". To allow this performance to fit onto one disc, the following songs were omitted: "Bullet The Blue Sky", "Running To Stand Still", "Where The Streets Have No Name", "Pride (In The Name Of Love)", "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", and "Love Is Blindness". The track listing on the packaging are a mess (e.g. "Desire" is listed as "Variation Of 'Not Fade Away'").
This is the original pressing on this label.

Comments:
Disc 1 has a picture of Bono as The Fly, with a guitar, at a microphone. Disc 2 has a picture of Bono as The Mirrorball Man. A good show from the indoor leg of the ZOO TV Tour. Disc 2, Tracks 9-13 are from soundchecks. Overall very much worth it. There's a funny quote from the inside cover: "When I was a youngster in Dublin, I made my grandmother walk around our neighborhood with me to touch all of the sewers, fire hydrants, and garbage cans" -Bono

Comments:
The 1992 Paris show is the bulk of the CD. You may remember it was the kick off of the first European leg of the Zoo TV tour, and Bono had a hangover. He tried really hard that night, and pulls through. The performance of "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses" is especially great. "Desire" and "Ultraviolet (Light My Way) were either not played or were edited out. The rest of the CD has some nice filler, as well. This set comes in a slimline 2CD case. The first CD has a picture of Bono and Edge back to back and second CD is tinted green. The cover has "WITH OR WITHOUT YOU" in huge letters with a really bad Zoo TV-era photo on the right side. This is a European bootleg. Disc 2, Tracks 9 and 10 feature Keith Richards. Disc 2, Track 10 features Ziggy Marley.

Sound Quality:
Excellent ! It's really a very good recording (soundboard?) with a good capture from the audience noise.

Comments:
This is complete show. This is one of my favorite ZOO TV bootlegs! The participation of the audience is really great (they sing louder than The Edge on the chorus to "The Fly"!), and the band made a good performance. I really recommend this CD. The front cover is not very nice, but you can find a school photo from 1978 in the book and recognize the young Bono and The Edge (I don't know where Adam and Larry are). Mistakes on the titles in the CD include the following: "When Love Comes To Town" is not listed (nor is it indexed) and "So cruel" is listed as being "All I Want Is You".

Comments:
Deluxe color cover, picture CD.
This concert was held in front of 8,000 people in one of the smallest venues of the whole Zoo TV tour. Since it was only three days before the infamous Stockholm gig, the songs sound very much the same. However, unlike in Stockholm Bono didn't talk much in between the tracks, which is good if you just want to hear the music and don't care much for his ramblings. It's definitely an excellent audience recording, it could even be from a soundboard source. During the first two or three songs the sound level varies a bit on a few occassions, but it's only a minor nuisance.
The disc starts with the "I could have lost you" bit after which "Zoo Station" kicks in full-force. Before "One" Bono says something in Swedish (?) and thanks the audience for hanging around for 5 years. "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses" was only played during the spring leg of the Zoo TV Tour (and afterwards on a few more dates in America) and this version sounds very good. It must have been rather hot inside the venue because Bono inquires after why's there's no air-conditioning. He then introduces "Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World" as an old Swedish drinking song. It's one of the evening's highlights. As always a girl comes onstage to drink champagne with Bono. He asks her to sit down and improvises with lines from "Every Little Thing's Gonna Be Alright". "Dancing Queen" is linked to "Angel Of Harlem". While the audience keeps singing "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", the band start playing "Stand By Me". Bono thanks the crowd and calls it quits, leaving The Edge on vocals for the rest of the song.
Unfortunately this bootleg does not contain the whole concert, but five other tracks can be found on THE PARTY STILL GOES ON (97/08/02 Gothenburg). In fact, if you combine these two bootlegs, only "Desire", "With Or Without You" and "Love Is Blindness" are absent.

Comments:
This CD is essentially the same concert as DANCING ZOO TV and SATELLITE FROM STOCKHOLM. Please read those reviews for more information about the Stockholm concert. "Bad" does go into a brief "All I Want Is You", similar to many concerts on the first leg of the tour. What makes this CD complete in my opinion are the bonus tracks from 'Zooropa'. I recommend getting one of the Stockholm concerts for those looking for a recording from the first leg of the ZOO TV Tour. U2 plays well, and the recording is outstanding.

Sound Quality:
Outstanding audience. It sounds very much like a soundboard recording.

Comments:
Great concert. Bono has a lot of aggression and energy (especially during "Bullet The Blue Sky"). This concert was broadcast into the home of an MTV Europe contest winner. Bono speaks to the winner, John, throughout the concert.

Comments:
Bono talks to The Edge here and there. "Stand By Me" has a lot of audience noise in it. This is a very long recording. THE LAST CONCERT is actually bits and pieces of DANCING ZOO TV. The CD is labeled November 14, 1992 at Anaheim, CA. I just got DANCING ZOO TV and it is the same EXACT show as THE LAST CONCERT. Just thought I'd let you all know before somebody else makes the same mistake.

Sound Quality:
Good-very good soundboard (see below).

Comments:
The sound of this recording has obviously been tampered with to remove the high frequency distortion present on the master recording. However, in reducing this interference, the high frequency components of the music have suffered tremendously. The bass and midrange have been boosted too much, resulting in vocal distortion and an overall lound which is too "loud" in spots, for lack of a better description. Skip this one and go after FALLING IN LOVE or one of the other boots for a more enjoyable recording of this great show. It is also available on UNTIL THE END OF THE WORLD. The overall mix is very good; a "raw" sound that is rare on ZooTV recordings. The sound resolution is excellent, such that you can hear Bono's breath. On the other hand, it is somewhat distorted sound wavers slightly in pitch, and the recording level was a little too high. The performance is pretty good, with an excellent cover of "Stand By Me".

Disc 2 (11-12): Unknown.

Sound Quality:
Excellent soundboard. There is high frequency distortion is present on Disc 1, but it is barely audible. Unfortunately, this distortion increases on Disc 2. This interference is generally only noticeable between songs and during "breaks in the action". Perhaps it would be more enjoyable on speakers than with headphones. Otherwise, this is a truly excellent recording.

Comments:
An excellent early concert from the indoor stage of the ZOO TV Tour. The packaging says only "Recorded live In Europe during '92 world tour", but enough other boots of this concert exist to easily pin this one down. Tracks 11 and 12 are not contained on other boots of this concert thus, their origin is unknown. The covers of "Dancing Queen" and "Stand By Me" on this set are complete and well done. This bootleg is very enjoyable and recommended. Truly one of the best early ZOO TV Tour bootlegs in circulation, in my opinion. This concert (minus Tracks 11 and 12 of Disc 2) is also available on other labels as AM ZOO, THE REAL THING and UNTIL THE END OF THE WORLD.

Comments:
This is a nice collection from Australia. All of the tracks came from fantastic sources, but when they were pressed to disc somehow a bit of static was pressed as well. The transition from song to song is mastered well, with audience noise blending the tracks together. A good find, if you can find it cheap.

Comments:
The disc says the recording is from "Seattle, Washington USA '93", which incorrect. The disc contains mostly songs from the August 28, 1993 Dublin, Ireland broadcast, which is why the sound quality is so good. The other tracks (9-12) sound pretty good, though the difference in quality is noticeable. The songs are taken from some show during the 1992 summer leg of the ZOO TV Tour. The editing between the two venues is done pretty well, with no awkward cuts or fade outs. This disc is the first part of two, Grapefruit's LEMON is the other. Together, they contain the whole Dublin broadcast and some extra songs.

Comments:
Same recording as THE REAL THING, and similar to FALLING IN LOVE but without the extra tracks. The lack of crowd noise can be both a plus and a minus. On this recording you hear everything that happens on the stage, including Bono breathing, and background noises that could have never been heard over a soundboard. For example, during "Bad", I heard a keyboard part that I had never heard before. Very crisp sound and not a bad show, either. Great version of "Dancing Queen".

The sound of this recording is not as good as it could be expected from a soundboard recording. It's a little bit crisp and it seems that it was remastered in one way or another. The cover is a four-sided inlet with blank inner pages, with the inner cover showing some pictures of windmills. The CD itself is a red and yellow printed pic cd. It has a yellow back cover with the track listing printed in red.

The CD incorrectly says July 28, 1987.

Sound Quality:
Very good soundboard.

Comments:
Like the title implies, it was a mixing desk recording (i.e. the sound you hear is the sound that came through the PA). U2 were furious when the found out about a leaked out concert recording. Paul McGuinnes later stated that the soundcrew responsible for recording it, AND selling it, were immediatly fired. So, not always is it the fans who make illegimate material, U2's crew did it, and I even try to believe U2 themselves does it. In the later case I'm talking about the 'Salome' outtakes and the two supposedly "stolen" fragments of the album 'Pop' which appeared on the internet, as we all know. This is a decent soundboard recording. The band does not put on a great concert, and they know it. Edge messes up during the "bridge" of "Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World " and the band messes up "Dancing Queen" and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" (Disc 2, Track 3). The bonus tracks are a nice addition. "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" (Disc 2, Track 14) is performed with the New Voices Of Freedom, and is the same version as the version on 'Rattle And Hum'.

Sound Quality:
Good audience. Recorded outside the stadium.

Comments:
This is a very interesting CD. While the sound is pretty bad, there is a lot of improvisation from U2 on this disc. The most noteworthy tracks on this disc are "Acrobat" and "So Cruel". This might even be the only disc with live versions of "Acrobat" on it, as U2 never performed it in concert, only at the Hershey soundchecks. It is worth a listen. U2 tries everything from reggae to country on this disc, and it's a real shame that this is an audience recording, rather than a soundboard or DAT. I wouldn't pay more than $20 for this disc, as I got mine for $8 at a record show, only after getting a copy on tape. I liked what I heard, and I figured that $8 would not kill me. Everyone should at least find a copy of this on tape, it's cool.

Comments:
There is a good stereo "feel" to this recording. You can hear all the "components" of U2 (i.e. vocals, bass, guitar and drums) very clearly. This CD features two interesting soundcheck recordings, apparently from just before the first ZOO TV show in Lakeland, Florida. When listening to the soundchecks (which are recorded fairly well), its quite strange to hear U2 play live, but with no applause or audience noise. I'd recommend this CD for anyone's collection, if only for the soundchecks and the brilliant performance (in my opinion) of "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses"! If you haven't got an Outside Broadcast Tour bootleg yet, then I think this one is worth the money. Disc 1, Track 1 is the infamous Automatic Baby performance, with Michael Stipe (of R.E.M.) on lead vocals.

Comments:
There is a slight hiss in the background while they are not playing but this is a very good soundboard recording. Awesome versions of "Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World", "Sunday Bloody Sunday" and "With Or Without You." Very good to excellent sound quality. The microphones pick up the audience from time to time, but it's one of the best bootlegs that I have heard. It still has a slight hiss, but is remastered and sounds MUCH better than the tape of this show that has been floating around for the past couple of years. The place I bought this CD from had literally tons of copies, so hopefully they will be everywhere soon. A "must-have," especially if you don't own any ZooTV Outside Broadcast shows. A very good (and complete) recording for the collection.

Sound Quality:
Disc 1, Disc 2 (1-8): Good to very good audience.
Disc 2 (9-13): Fair audience.
The first two songs sound fairly bad, but the sound quality improves considerably with "Even Better Than The Real Thing" and stays quite clear for the rest of the show, but certain parts, such as the harmonica between "Running to Stand Still" and "Where The Streets Have No Name" are a little faint.

Comments:
A good sampler of a typical American ZOO TV Outside Broadcast show. Bono and Co. were clearly enjoying themselves that night, playing a loose, relaxed set, with Bono frequently chatting it up and joking with the audience in between songs. Larry's inspired rendition of Thin Lizzy's "Whiskey in the Jar" is hilarious, especially after Bono introduces him as, "My mate, Marky Mark." "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" is a beautiful addition to the mid-show "unplugged" set; I know of no other shows where the song was performed in this part of the show, which is a shame, because it works wonderfully. "With Or Without You" is the extended version with lyrics from "Love Will Tear Us Apart", and "Love Is Blindness" is drawn out to six-and-a-half chilling, riveting minutes. The bonus tracks of "Redemption Song" and "Sunday Bloody Sunday" are a nice surprise, as is "Southern Man", in which Bono invites an audience member to play guitar, like he did during The Lovetown Tour. "Hawkmoon 269", a favorite of mine, is sadly maimed by a terrible recording, and the extra take of "Unchained Melody" is an equally-poor recording that is completely unnecessary, as that song is performed as part of the main show. This set is overall a very pleasing one.
This is the original pressing on this label.

The sound of this 2 CD set is distant, there is too much treble, and you can't hear bass too well, just a mass of low sound. You can hear Bono's voice and The Edge's guitar very well. I don't know if I described the sound quality very well (it isn't so bad) but I don't find it interesting at all. It is the type of sound you can't amplify too much because then it becomes very loud mass of sound that you can't listen to. On Disc 2, Tracks 14, 15, and 17, there is crowd noise everywhere (sometimes you can barely hear the band). "Stand By Me", with Bruce Springsteen, is the poorest-quality track on this double CD.

Comments:
These CDs are both very nice picture discs. On each disc, all four members of U2 are pictured from the 'Achtung Baby' era. Concerning the songs, all can be found on other CDs. "Even Better Than The Real Thing" contains drums with Garth from the 1992 MTV Music Video Awards. Before "Trying To Thow Your Arms Around The World", Bono exclaims, "(that it is a)...traditional Irish drinking song the Beatles had stolen from us and we're stealing it back". "Angel Of Harlem" is an acoustic version beginning with a portion of "Hello Good-bye". Before "Redemption Song", Bono says that it is the first time that they have ever played the song live, and then he pleads for the return of his stolen notebook. The Mirrorball Man's phone call is to George Bush, then President Of The United States, who is "unavailable". Deluxe color cover.

Both suffer from bad reverberation during speaking parts which makes it hard to discern what is being said. Both have little to no audience screaming within close range of the microphones (no one yelling "Bono!" etc.) which is pretty good for audience recordings.

Comments:
The cover is from 'The Joshua Tree' photo session, but material is ZOO TV era. A little bit of wow and flutter in "Mysterious Ways". A complete drop out in "New Year's Day", lasting eight seconds, which is supplemented by another recording of really poor quality (from another show probably). Dana Carvey appears as Garth for the TV part right before "Even Better Than The Real Thing" and also plays the drums along with the song. The sound of Garth's drums is fed over satellite and mixed in with Larry's drums, but you can really only hear it during the guitar solo when Bono says "Drum solo, Garth." I feel the first two tracks, "Zoo Station" and "The Fly", are the best recordings on this booleg. The rest are poorer quality, even if they are from the same tape. This would most likely be a treasure to anyone who attended either of these shows. See also: THE EYE OF THE FLY.

The concert featured on Discs 1 and 2 is available on the 2CD set, KTS Records' ZOO TV - LIVE TRANSMISSION. See that entry for more details. Disc 3 features Garth (Dana Carvey) from 'Wayne's World' after "Zoo Station". This is because U2 performed via satellite for The 1992 MTV Video Music Awards. This boxed set comes with two 12-page booklets with ZOO TV pictures, etc. Also, comes with a cool poster of the cover of the box. On Discs 1 and 2, the crowd is a bit on the noisy side but the overall sound is very crisp. Of the three versions I have heard of the Houston show, this is the best.

Sound Quality:
(1-8): Good audience.
(9-15) Fair audience.
Both suffer from bad reverberation during speaking parts which makes it hard to discern what is being said. Both have little to no audience screaming within close range of the microphones (no one yelling "Bono!" etc.) which is pretty good for audience recordings.

Comments:
The cover is from 'The Joshua Tree' photo session, but material is ZOO TV era. A little bit of wow and flutter in "Mysterious Ways". A complete drop out in "New Year's Day", lasting eight seconds, which is supplemented by another recording of really poor quality (from another show probably). Dana Carvey appears as Garth for the TV part right before "Even Better Than The Real Thing" and also plays the drums along with the song. The sound of Garth's drums is fed over satellite and mixed in with Larry's drums, but you can really only hear it during the guitar solo when Bono says "Drum solo, Garth." I feel the first two tracks, "Zoo Station" and "The Fly", are the best recordings on this booleg. The rest are poorer quality, even if they are from the same tape. This would most likely be a treasure to anyone who attended either of these shows. See also: THE EYE OF THE FLY.

I've seen the Detroit songs elsewhere, but not the Madison show. Madison may be an audience recording and sounds very bassy.

Sound Quality :
Excellent audience. The sound is really clear. Unfortunately, this means that there are one or two really clear conversations heard in the audience. Aside from that, it's great.

Comments:
This is the only bootleg that I know of on which Bono sang "My Girl" after "One". The acoustic "All I Want Is You" sounds great too. If you've saw ZOO TV show, you know that "Bullet The Blue Sky" and "Running To Stand Still" are also great. "With Or Without You" has the 7th verse plus bits of "Love Will Tear Us Apart" from Joy Division. It`s the only performance that I know of (other than on "Rock's Hottest Ticket") with it and I love it. The packaging lists "Running To Stand Still" as "Bad".

The sound of this 2 CD set is distant, there is too much treble, and you can't hear bass too well, just a mass of low sound. You can hear Bono's voice and The Edge's guitar very well. I don't know if I described the sound quality very well (it isn't so bad) but I don't find it interesting at all. It is the type of sound you can't amplify too much because then it becomes very loud mass of sound that you can't listen to. On Disc 2, Tracks 14, 15, and 17, there is crowd noise everywhere (sometimes you can barely hear the band). "Stand By Me", with Bruce Springsteen, is the poorest-quality track on this double CD.

Comments:
These CDs are both very nice picture discs. On each disc, all four members of U2 are pictured from the 'Achtung Baby' era. Concerning the songs, all can be found on other CDs. "Even Better Than The Real Thing" contains drums with Garth from the 1992 MTV Music Video Awards. Before "Trying To Thow Your Arms Around The World", Bono exclaims, "(that it is a)...traditional Irish drinking song the Beatles had stolen from us and we're stealing it back". "Angel Of Harlem" is an acoustic version beginning with a portion of "Hello Good-bye". Before "Redemption Song", Bono says that it is the first time that they have ever played the song live, and then he pleads for the return of his stolen notebook. The Mirrorball Man's phone call is to George Bush, then President Of The United States, who is "unavailable". Deluxe color cover.

Sound Quality:
Average audience.

Comments:
Listed on the back as DDD, it is most likely a digital audience recording because the sound is just not that good. This is the first time on the tour that "Redemption Song" is played and before singing it, Bono appeals for the return of his notebook which was stolen from the band's hotel in the Spring. Also parts of "My Way" creep into "With Or Without You". The packaging is the real story here. It is a gorgeous fold out cardboard box. There is a very descriptive booklet which details the night, song for song. All the outside tour dates are listed as well as a replica of the ticket from that night. It's a shame that the sound does not live up to the packaging. Listed as being recorded by Flying Fish Mobile Studio (whetever that is).

Comments:
This is the umpteenth time that I've seen a bootleg of this show, so there must be something great about it.

One other note: this is the first time that "Redemption Song" was played live on this tour.

The concert featured on Discs 1 and 2 is available on the 2CD set, KTS Records' ZOO TV - LIVE TRANSMISSION. See that entry for more details. Disc 3 features Garth (Dana Carvey) from 'Wayne's World' after "Zoo Station". This is because U2 performed via satellite for The 1992 MTV Video Music Awards. This boxed set comes with two 12-page booklets with ZOO TV pictures, etc. Also, comes with a cool poster of the cover of the box. On Discs 1 and 2, the crowd is a bit on the noisy side but the overall sound is very crisp. Of the three versions I have heard of the Houston show, this is the best.

Comments:
Overall, it`s overall a great show, Redemption Song (B. Marley) is a nice treat that I hadn't heard them play before. There are no technical difficulties, nor is the sound really ever soft. The only thing that might be thought of as a problem is the fact that the audience is noisy. During "Angel Of Harlem", Bono starts off with The Beatles' "Hello, Good-bye", and he also adds another verse of lyrics. The phone call is to George Bush, and Bono makes an amusing comment about him not being able to talk to the people of his home state. Bono messes up the lyrics in "Mysterious Ways" and acknowledges it to himself, "I fucked that up!". "Zoo Station" opens with a little of the "George Bush Rap".

This is part one of a semi-dress rehearsel U2 held two days before the first Zooropa '93 concert. A small group of fans was let inside to witness the soundcheck and they must have taped it. Unfortunately it's not done well. There's a loud hiss audible the whole time and the (Dutch) fans can clearly be heard talking and laughing. Loud noises sound terribly distorted. The first track is mislabeled as "Zoo Station". Apparently only the first 50 copies of this bootleg were numbered. I've got number 005 myself, but I wouldn't have bought it if I had known it sounded so bad. For the fans who witnessed this rehearsal it must have been great, but this bootleg is too crappy to enjoy listening to. Avoid this one. Deluxe color cover. The first track is not listed.

Very good audience.

Comments:
Deluxe color cover. Picture CDs. This is one of the greatest concerts of 1993! A lot of surprises and improvisations (such as The Edge singing "Party Girl" alone and also a simple birthday song for Bono). "I Will Follow" sounds a little improvised, but it's a good surprise. This is from a better source than BONO'S BIRTHDAY PARTY from the Take It Or Leave It label. The sound quality much better on this one. "Unchained Melody", "Bono's Birthday Song", "My Girl" and "Are You Lonesome Tonight" not listed on CD. "Ultraviolet (Light My Way)" is listed as "Light My Way".

This is one of the greatest concerts of 1993! A lot of surprises and improvisations (such as The Edge singing "Party Girl" alone and also a simple birthday song for Bono). "I Will Follow" sounds a little improvised, but it's a good surprise. The only bad things about this CD is that the sound is not very good and the last song, "Are You Lonesome Tonight", is missing. The only time U2 play a different song to end the show, it is edited out! What a pity! "Unchained Melody" is labeled "I Need Your Love".

Comments:
This is the last of three consecutive concerts U2 played at Feyenoord Stadium to commence their Zooropa '93 Tour. Whenever they play multiple gigs at one location, the last night's kind of special and this one's no exception. The band made quite a few mistakes (maybe 'cause it was the day after Bono's birthday?), but the atmosphere was exuberant. The first disc has the complete intro with the drummer boy and European anthem before "Zoo Station". During "The Fly" Bono messes up the "Achtung y'all!"-part and has to improvise his way out of it. Before the channel hopping, he thanks the crowd for having them three nights in a row. "Until The End Of The World" and "New Year's Day" sound fantastic. Bono then introduces Larry, who comes forward to hold a little speech before singing "Wild Rover". He gets a loud cheer from the Dutch crowd. The girl that Bono brings up for "Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World" sings a few lines and even gets a kiss from him. At the end of the song Bono sums it up perfectly by adding "Gonna be alright.. Zoo TV tonight... Everything alright... a little off-key tonight... that's alright... There's no tomorrow night". The acoustic set is truly one of the best of the whole tour. Bono improvises a few lines during "Angel Of Harlem" and "Slow Dancing" makes a very rare appearance. The highlight, however, is the semi-acoustic and extended version of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For". It sounds simply amazing. To make it even more superb, Bono sings an extra verse in the middle of the song. During "Bad" he adds snippets of a song I don't know (anyone?). "All I Want Is You" is only about 30 seconds long. "Bullet The Blue Sky" sees more improvisation by Bono. "Running To Stand Still" segues beautifully into "Where The Streets Have No Name". As usual on the Zoo TV tours, "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" features the speech by Martin Luther King. Unlike most other Zoo TV bootlegs, this one has the complete video confessionals and the singing Russian cosmonaut before "Desire". MacPhisto's speech about the invention of rock-and-roll is very weird. He phones the residence of Queen Beatrix, but (as usual) doesn't get past the receptionist, who promptly hangs up on him. "With Or Without You" is rather short, but has the "We'll Shine Like Stars"-part. "Love Is Blindness" and "Can't Help Fallin' In Love" end a great show. The bonus tracks on the second disc are taken from the two other nights at Feyenoord Stadium. They're all very rare performances. Larry sings The Dubliners' "Dirty Old Town" and Bono improvises some lines during "When Love Comes To Town". On his debut, MacPhisto sings a few lines from the Dutch song that won the Eurovision song contest in 1975. The second night features some nice surprises as well. The Edge performs "Party Girl" solo for the first time in his life, with a nice birthday song for Bono on top of it. Also included are rare performances of "My Girl" (with improvised lyrics), "I Will Follow" (dedicated to the Paradiso) and "Sunday Bloody Sunday". Bono's birthday show ends with the only-ever performance of Elvis' "Are You Lonesome Tonight?". The sound is excellent throughout the whole concert. Even the bonus tracks sound very good to excellent. In my opinion this is the best of all Rotterdam 1993 bootlegs.

Comments:
U2 put on a good performance for Munich the night before 'Zooropa' was released in Europe. Although obviously an audience recording, the sound is surprisingly clear. Track 11 on Disc 2 is labeled as "vocals by Edge", but really he's just singing his usual backing vocals without Bono on lead. Track 12 on Disc 2 is not particularly interesting. It's hardly even a song, just an instrumental jam. Track 13 on Disc 2 is more interesting, starting off with a chiming, delay-laden riff, and visiting numerous moods before abruptly ending. The packaging is nicely done, with interesting graphics on the discs themselves, and a 12-page booklet with ZOO TV and 'Zooropa'-era photographs.

Sound Quality:
This recording is a very good audience.

Comments:
Track 8 is mislabeled on sleeve as "Dirty Old Town". Track 9 is mislabeled as "All I Want is You". There is crowd noise evident throughout, such as audible clapping and talking, but the worst of it is heard during the breaks between songs. I would guess the person who taped this was near the front speakers because the music itself is recorded quite well. That is what makes it listenable, in spite of the crowd interference. In fact, I listen to this disc on my car stereo, which I can't say about most other bootlegs I have. All instruments and sound ranges are well-represented. The bass, which in my experience is usually muted or hard to distinguish, is clear and rich on this recording. The intro to "Zoo Station" is cut, so the song starts with Edge's opening riffs. Also cut are Mac Phisto's speeches and phone call. This is a fairly basic show in terms of the Zooropa Tour. The setlist is the usual, but the band is "on" and I would say it is a good performance. This would be a good candidate for a new collector looking for a representative show that sounds pretty good. I think it is worth it just to hear Bono have fun with the French language. Can you say "mangle"?

Comments:
The Zooropa show from Italy is good performance for an enthusiastic audience, but the audience noise really ruins it. This is the last of four shows that Pearl Jam opened for U2 (along with An Emotional Fish) and Bono mentions them at one point. The real attraction of this package are the Dublin tracks, which should be the main feature of the discs, not bonus tracks! An embryonic U2 put on a great show for about 1000 fans and friends in their home town, a full 8 months before the release of "Boy". Many of the songs feature different lyrics than the ones we're used to on their later releases. Disc 2 Track 7 is "11 O'Clock Tick Tock" with different lyrics (it's listed as "11 O'Clock Tick Tock"). Track 10 is "Touch" with different lyrics. Track 16 features the original lyrics as found on the 1980 "Another Day" B-side. Track 18 is probably some kind of "inside joke", a short fragment of Don McLean's "Vincent" (probably not the original, but I wouldn't know). The inlay card calls it "The last non-deserved tribute to the Unforgettable Fire". The title is not on the package, but is printed on the CDs themselves. Very odd. The packaging is nice, featuring numerous pictures of the band, both old and new (great one of very young Bono, The Edge, and Larry on-stage). It includes a blurb about each show, and gives thanks to a Mr. Brush for taping the Zooropa show. Not to be confused with the other FARAWAY SO CLOSE, which has a very similar title!
This is the original pressing on this label.

Sound Quality:
Very good audience, although the audience is barely audible. The bass sound is much to loud, making the CD a bit unpleasant to listen to. By using an equalizer and tuning the 1-150 Hertz range the quality becomes very good.

Comments:
The discs are not indexed. This degrades the CD. Each disc has only 2 tracks. Track 2 on Disc 1 starts at Stay. Track 2 of Disc 2 starts at the video confessions. The pictures on the cover are from 1989. The pictures on the back and inside are from 1985. This concert has the 2nd performance of "Stay". Other specials are "I Will Follow" and the video link with Sarajevo.

Sound Quality:
Very good audience. There are times, however, where Bono`s voice gets a little faint, especially during "Can`t Help Falling In Love", when the crowd starts singing along. Also, one channel (the left?) is slightly louder but an equalizer should remedy this.

Comments:
It`s a great bootleg despite the slight channel problem and Bono`s occasionally faint voice. The call to Salman Rushdie is great. "Zooropa" and "Babyface" are surprises. I don`t know how often they played them. The second "Bad" and "The First Time" is from August 12, 1993. It features violinist L. Shankar playing with the band. The violin adds a wonderful counter melody to the song. The intro on "Zoo Station" is fairly long, about 2 minutes. The Edge gets all the lines in the same order as in the studio version of "Numb". Bono does his "fuck America!" routine during "Bullet The Blue Sky".

Sound Quality:
Excellent audience. Might be the best audience recording I've ever heard!

Comments:
Excellent recording, maybe the best I've ever heard! This is fantastic bootleg recorded digitally with a DAT recorder and a very good microphone. This the first show in London which contains "Zooropa" and "Babyface" (which is played for the first time ever). It should be remastered because of the high-dynamic and the strong presence of bassses and high tones which causes a boring hiss. It is still very good, sometimes sounding just like a soundboard recording! Also, the audience noise is perfect! Get a copy of this! This is a VERY limited edition of only 30 copies, I believe. Sometimes it is sold in a deluxe 8-CD wooden box (along with WEMBLEY NIGHTS VOL. 3 & 4, WEMBLEY NIGHTS VOL. 5 & 6, and WEMBLEY NIGHTS VOL. 7 & 8).

Comments:
The show is very good with good crowd participation. The stadium goes mad when "I Will Follow" is played. The satellite link-up with Sarajevo is very touching. You all should get a copy of this CD. "Bullet The Blue Sky" is played harder and louder than ever before, and "Bad" is mixed with the violin of L. Shankar for an unique and beautiful version. This is a VERY limited edition of only 30 copies, I believe.

Comments:
Having the entire show, from start to finish, without a single break is always a plus. The minus is when you actually listen to it. I purchased it after listening to it on headphones in the store. In my car it sounds so-so, but at home it sounds better. Try headphones and you won't be disappointed. This CD has the heart-wrenching Sarajevo link-up which will tear you up inside. The video confessionals are hilarious!

A good show, but if you have other Zooropa dates, you need not apply. The best things about this disc are the acoustic versions of "Angel of Harlem" and "When Love Comes To Town". It says that it's a digital recording but that would just imply that it came from a digital audience tape (DAT).

Sound Quality:
Excellent audience. From "Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World" to "Bullet The Blue Sky", the sound is not as good because of the hard rain falling, however the general sound is impressive! Obviously, this is a DAT recording so just get a copy of it! Also, this CD should be remastered, but the audience noise is perfect (you don't hear close clapping noises).

Comments:
This is one of the best Zooropa shows ever! The band is very inspired by the heavy rain falling, and puts on a fantastic and emotional show. The highlight is "Dancing Queen", also sung by Larry. The phone call to Graham Taylor (the ex-England football team coach) is very, very funny! The acoustic set is superb! Surely a show to remember!

Comments:
This was broadcast worldwide on the radio. Bono tries to call the United Nations after Desire and gets an answering machine. The only bad thing is the cover and packaging, its pretty boring. There are no pictures and when the sleeve is opened there's just a big Live Storm logo with Italian print over it. I listened to it and the "Tryin' To Throw You Arms Around The World" version is complete (with the "Dublin City says I will.." ending). Bad and Bullet are both on disc two thus having no continuity problems. However, I tested it only on the record store and I wasn't able to listen if the show was complete with the Zoo TV Confessions and the Elvis ending. But if it has the full show, and since it had "Bad" and "Bullet The Blue Sky" on the same disc, this is potentially the best alternative pressing to buy for this show. With regards to sound quality, it is pretty much the same as the other pressings of this show. I wasn't able to really listen closely to the fidelity so this may be a better- or lesser-sounding bootleg, but definitely only by a small fraction.
This is one of two of the original pressings on this label.

Comments:
Indeed a worthwhile effort by all collaborators on this one! Disc 1 is an exceptional take. The highly energized opening of "Sympathy For The Devil" and "God Part II" sets the pace for the first three songs (very good live versions of each one too!). The pace slows a little as U2 goes into "All I Want Is You", "Where The Streets Have No Name", and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", but the atmosphere is perfectly created. "Where The Streets Have No Name" was dedicated to Samuel Beckett, who passed away that week. Bono says, "It's kind of sad he never made it home, but he dreamt of other lands, of another home, Where The Streets Have No Name." Then, in " I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", Bono says (of playing back in Dublin), "We've been playing in all these BIG places, so we thought we like to play a small place again...It's nice to be home." Disc 2 begins with the continuation of the Point Depot concerts. Tracks 1-5 are the "post-card" to the European nations, as Bono wishes Czechoslovakia, Romania, Germany, etc.. a very happy new year. The tempo speeds up again as the highly charged "New Year's Day" takes the stage. This was the concert that was broadcast live to Eastern and Western Europe, so undoubtedly the emotional implications of the ending cold-war heightened the adrenaline flowing through Bono's veins at this point. Tracks 6-8 are a cut from some leg of the ZOO TV Tour. Not much to say here other than U2 did an interesting combination of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" with "Stand By Me". Tracks 9-14 are from the worldwide broadcast of the August 28, 1993 from Dublin, Ireland. It continues on Disc 3. Nothing new as far as the Zooropa Tour goes. If you've heard these songs as part of their tour before, you've heard them on this disc. The sound quality is quite exceptional for a bootleg, with very little interference or that sort from the audience. In all, I would highly recommend this set to anyone who can get their hands on it. It was a little pricey if I can remember right, somewhere around $90CA, but worth it. The only downside is that there are no liner notes. There are only a few pictures (some of which aren't bad) that have been collected throughout the tours. Enjoy!
This is the original pressing on this label.

Comments:
This is a nice collection from Australia. All of the tracks came from fantastic sources, but when they were pressed to disc somehow a bit of static was pressed as well. The transition from song to song is mastered well, with audience noise blending the tracks together. A good find, if you can find it cheap.

Comments:
[Adrian Elmer]: This disc is another version of RDS Showgrounds show in Dublin during the ZooTV Tour (See ZOOROPA 1993, 10" REELS, ZOO EUROPA etc.). It has excellent sound, but a few drawbacks. As well as the lack of track indexing, it also starts with the familiar guitar sounds of Zoo Station, omitting all the intro sound found on ZOOROPA 1993. It also only covers the first half of the show. The bonus tracks are good quality, but can be found as part of the complete concert on ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET. The sound of them on this CD is a little bottom heavy after hearing the pristine sound of the Dublin show, but turning down the bass level on the stereo leaves the sound clear. A good CD, but get ZOOROPA 1993 and ROCK'S HOTTEST TICKET if you can to hear these tracks in a better context. Also, this CD is not indexed.

Comments:
This CD is referenced as the concert in Verona on July 3, 1993, but is the final concert from The Zooropa Tour from Dublin, Ireland. This is the show that had been broadcasted on the radio. It was a very emotional concert, as we can hear in many songs. "One" was dedicated to the people of Bosnia. In "Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World", Bono calls Naomi Campbell to the stage to take the Handicam. "Bad" was dedicated to Michael Jackson and "Satellite of Love" to all the "Zoo Crew." Before "Help" and "Ultraviolet (Light My Way)", Mac Phisto places a phone call to the "United Nations". I think Track 13 of Disc 1 and Track 12 of Disc 2 were recorded in Verona, as the title suggests. Excellent recording! Larry sings on "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For"! Buy it immediately if you come across it!

Comments:
The disc says the recording is from "Seattle, Washington USA '93", which incorrect. The disc contains mostly songs from the August 28, 1993 Dublin, Ireland broadcast, which is why the sound quality is so good. The other tracks (9-12) sound pretty good, though the difference in quality is noticeable. The songs are taken from some show during the 1992 summer leg of the ZOO TV Tour. The editing between the two venues is done pretty well, with no awkward cuts or fade outs. This disc is the first part of two, Grapefruit's LEMON is the other. Together, they contain the whole Dublin broadcast and some extra songs.

Comments:
Even better than the official live albums! Recorded live from the mixing desk, it's the best bootleg (including HAPPY NEW YEAR) I've ever heard. The sound is more than perfect ! The package has superb photos. Some errors occur on the titles, such as: "Bullet" for "Bullet The Blue Sky" and "Help Me" for The Beatles' "Help". The version of "Stay" is very very good (in my opinion) and "Numb" is played like the Industrial Mix on the 3-track video cassette single for "Numb." The August 28, 1993 Dublin bootleg has long been considered perhaps the greatest bootleg ever, and most of the reviewers say ZOO EUROPA is the best. The ending of "Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World" has Bono saying simply "I Will," instead of the "Dublin City says I will," on other bootlegs such as Live Storm's ZOOROPA `93 -RDS , DUBLIN 1993. Obviously, KTS has found a way to edit it out so it misses a beat or the ending seems a little bit abrupt. The long wait while the band is walking to the b-stage after this song and to "Angel Of Harlem" is edited too, because it seems that the two songs were played right after the other (which they were not). This bootleg is also edited from "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" to "Desire". The Zoo confessions and the TV images and interference right before "Desire" is edited (as compared to the unedited ZOOROPA `93). So all you hear is the crowd after from "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" and then "Desire" kicks straight in. After "Cant Help Falling In Love," Bono says goodnight and the bootleg fades out. In other pressings such as ZOOROPA `93, you can still hear the Elvis version of the song from the PA while Bono says "Elvis is still in the building," and then it fades out. From the looks of it, this CD has obviously been remastered as seen from the edits which have actually been quite professionally done (that is why no one has pointed this out, maybe because they never noticed it or that they only have one Dublin bootleg, thus no other basis of comparison. After all, who would be crazy enough to buy different pressings of the same show?). Thus, this may be the best sounding in terms of sound quality among all the Dublin pressings. Taken from the worldwide broadcast, this is a great homecoming performance. The band have even incorporated a few 'Zooropa' songs here too. It's nicely edited and an enjoyable listen. Every bootleg should look and sound this good! Again, they go through a large chink of 'Achtung Baby' material before going into "New Year's Day." The fairly-new "Numb" is played next. The acoustic set also features another new song, "Stay (Faraway So Close!)," along with crowd-pleasers "Angel Of Harlem" and "When Love Comes To Town." "Satellite Of Love" features a pre-recorded vocal of Lou Reed. "Bad" opens the second disc and includes a snippet of Elton John's "Candle In The Wind," and ends with a snippet of another new song, "The First Time." A short version of The Beatles "Help" launches into "Ultraviolet (Light My Way)." "Desire includes Bono's Mac Phisto character's call to the United Nations, which is actually a pre-recorded bit from Adam. The show concludes with Elvis' "Can't Help Falling in Love" with nice crowd participation. A nice release. It's also out on quite a few other labels under different titles. Collectors and even casual fans should enjoy it. The cover states "Live On Tour 1993." This comes with a nice 12-page fold-out with lots of photos and a short "Professor Stone" essay. Both CDs are picture discs.
This is the original pressing on this label.

Comments:
Yet another in the seemingly-endless series of bootlegs form the Dublin radio show broadcasts. The only added extra is "Paint It Black", which nobody should be without. Pick up that "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses" CD-single or get it here. The cover is a mass of blue, green, orange, and pink swirls. Cool.

Comments:
This is similar to KTS Records' ZOO EUROPA and Backstage Records' ZOOTOPIA, except it is completely unedited. The bonus tracks from Wembley Stadium are a nice bonus also. The packaging is nice, with a picture of MacPhisto on the cover. The big turnoff is that "Bad" ends Disc 1 it literally "fades away"; while "Bullet The Blue Sky" begins by "fading in" in on Disc 2. This isn't really a good thing to do because in this concert "Bad" moves straight into "Bullet The Blue Sky" (in the same vein "Please" moves straight into "Where The Streets Have No Name" on the PopMart Tour). They are inseparable in the way they were played because Bono finishes the last line in "Bad" on the intro of "Bullet The Blue Sky." This boot, however, does have the complete show, including the introductions, the ZOO TV Confessions, and the Elvis ending with Bono saying "Elvis is still in the building..." (not present on KTS Records' ZOO EUROPA). The sound quality of this bootleg is also excellent, but KTS Records' ZOO EUROPA gets a slight nod for presenting "Bad" and "Bullet The Blue Sky" on the same CD (Disc 2). On the other hand, the plus for this boot is that it has the complete show and is unedited (except for the nasty fade out on Disc 1 and fade in Disc 2). It's basically a toss-up.
This is the original pressing on this label.

Comments:
The "zillionth" release of the Dublin radio broadcast. Track 1 starts at the start of the song "Television, The Drug Of A Nation" and even the video confessions are included! To me, this bootleg offers the best sound quality available. A small drawback is the bad editing. Sometimes you hear a small skip between the songs, as if someone stopped the recorder to save space. This means that the very good video confessions (in which almost the entire crew appears) ends abruptly and that we miss the first two seconds of "Fanfare". About the quality of the concert, it has been said enough, it's great! The three songs from Wembley Stadium are a nice addition. To me, the recording doesn't sound like soundboard, it's too soft and the mixing is not good enough to be a soundboard recording. Unfortunately, "Zooropa" starts in at 2/3 of the studio recording, and does not equal the studio version. "Babyface" is better, although in the end, Bono seems lost in the song. The the "rarity" of these tracks makes up for all the mistakes. This is another treasure.

Sound Quality:
Excellent soundboard. Just perfect!

Comments:
This show was broadcast live on world-wide radio. Recorded live from the mixing desk, it's the best bootleg I've ever heard. The sound is more than perfect! The package has superb photos (although not many). Some errors occurred on the track listings. Before the encore of each ZOO TV show (after Pride (In The Name Of Love)), there was a 5-10 minute pause in the show where the video from the video confessionals was played. The booth was located on the floor of the stadium and people could walk in and say anything they wanted to the camera. During the Dublin shows, the road crew recorded various video segments for the video confessionals. Many boots were made from this recording, even an identical ZOOTOPIA on the Octopus label. The only difference between them is the artwork over the CDs. Their folders are equal. Among all the discs with this show, only R.D.S. Music's ZOOROPA 1993 seems to be a bit more complete, having the full intro to the concert, including the last song before they go on.

Comments:
The quality of this show is amazing. It has to be recorded from the bands monitors, you can't hear the crowd, but can hear breathing on the mics and thumping of guitars and other little stage noises. the sound is a tiny bit muffeled at times, but other than that its amazing to hear a bootleg with almost NO audience! This is a good companion to the Sydney 1993 soundboard show. The previously-released ZOOMERANG IN ADELAIDE set cut the encore. This show seemed a bit more honest and less 'planned' than Sydney. The phone call was never explained properly. The person whom Bono called was an ex-soccer coach named Graham Cornes (who is now a television commentator). Cornes had just married a 17 year-old girl and had gotten her pregnant - mind you this is when Cornes was about 46 years old! That's why Bono was saying that he knew Cornes could help him out with the "young girlies." I doubt that this adds to the show, but it does make the whole thing a bit funnier.

All tracks on the album sound great, except Disc 2, Tracks 4-6 reveal some recording flaws when listened to with headphones. For best effect, listen to the album on speakers. The demos are especially satisfactory (note, though, early demos are usually of lower quality than most other portions of a bootleg).

Comments:
If you are looking to add a Zooropa bootleg to your collection, this is it. The company is very generous, as exemplified by the amount of music available on these 2 CDs. The Zooropa concert is smooth. If you want to hear Bono's act and him talking, then you will be disappointed. I you just want to hear continuous stream of U2's more recent songs, you will definitely be pleased. The demo songs are great too, especially if you like the 'Boy' songs. Tracks 12 and 15 are mislabeled "No Man's Land" and "City At Night". The origin of Disc 2, Track 7 is not clear. Some claim that it is the unreleased Track U2 recorded at a Long Island studio in mid-late November, 1981.

This is a nice collection from Australia. All of the tracks came from fantastic sources, but when they were pressed to disc somehow a bit of static was pressed as well.

Comments:
The disc says the recording is from "Seattle, Washington USA '93", which incorrect. The disc contains mostly songs from the August 28, 1993 Dublin, Ireland broadcast, which is why the sound quality is so good. The other tracks (9-12) sound pretty good, though the difference in quality is noticeable. The songs are taken from some show during the 1992 summer leg of the ZOO TV Tour. The editing between the two venues is done pretty well, with no awkward cuts or fade outs. This disc is the first part of two, Grapefruit's LEMON is the other. Together, they contain the whole Dublin broadcast and some extra songs.

Sound Quality:
Good to very good television broadcast.

Comments:
The source listed for this is November 26, 1993, which is incorrect. Having heard this one, it sounds a tad better than ZOOROPA DOWN UNDER because Bono's voice is more prominent. The drawback is that there is some major editing in-between the songs. Much of Bono's limited chatter is taken out yet there is still so much space left on the two discs that it all could have been left in. "Can't Help Falling In Love" is left off of the end of the show. I am not exaggerating at all when I tell you that the sound is simply very "muddy-sounding" and the instruments seem flat. It lacks range and clarity, while sounding artificial. The crispness and sharpness of this bootleg is absolutely zero. I sometimes question whether this is really a broadcast bootleg or not, but since I don't hear any crown noise, it has to be a broadcast. I'd assume this was recorded off the pay per view broadcast (which did have really "muddy" sound quality) and then edited to exclude "Can't Help Falling In Love" for some unknown reason.

Comments:
This seems like a safe bet because it has the concert in it's entirety. It was a very good show to begin with but the extra tracks add a little incentive to picking it up. Make sure to listen to before you buy it though, many have disliked the "muffled" sound of the Sydney tracks a bit.

Sound Quality:

Comments:
This show is the same as the Sydney pay-per-view special. It contains "Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World", the video confessionals, and Mac Phisto speech, each in their entirety. The sound is not as good as the Dublin broadcast, but still this show is a must have! Excellent performances of "Dirty Day", "Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car", "Lemon", etc.

Sound Quality:
Excellent soundboard / broadcast. Has a slightly "muddy" mix to it.

Comments:
This is the complete show from which the pay-per-view broadcast was taken. The band play a strong set that had achieved a good balance of 'Achtung Baby' and 'Zooropa' material by the final stretch of the ZooTV Tour. Highlights include a great performance of "Lemon" and "Love Is Blindness". This CD includes the video taped "audience confessionals" that were broadcast over the stadium monitors before the band came back for the encore after "Pride (In The Name Of Love)". That segment was not included in the commercial release of this show on video. There is also a very clean edit which omits a couple seconds of the guitar solo during "The Fly". The sound is taken from a broadcast of the show, but the original sound mix unfortunately could have been better, resulting in a very "stadium" sound. Several songs are indexed together and are also misspelled, such as "Mysterious Ways". The 2 CDs come enclosed in a very attractive digipak that folds out in 3 panels across, and 3 panels up, and are illustrated with numerous photos from the 1992-1993 tours. With the release of the video and laserdisc of this show, this disc is totally obsolete except for the most ardent completists.

Comments:
This show was broadcast on television, but when I listen to it, it sounds like there's a wet towel covering my speakers. A lot of hiss, and not enough bass. This is the show that was offered to cable subscribers as a pay-per-view special. Contains material cut from the videocassette release - "Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World," the ZooTV Confessional, and parts of MacPhisto's speech during the first encore. The sound should be much better than it is. Possibly other bootlegs of this show have better sound quality. Still an excellent set of one of the last Zoo TV shows. The live versions of "Dirty Day," "Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car," and "Lemon" are Awesome!

Sound Quality:

Comments:
This set features the full video confessionals and Mac Phisto's speech (which results in over 9 minutes of "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" and 11 minutess of "Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car"). It comes with a 4-page booklet which has has a GREAT photo of Bono and The Edge singing into their Powerbook laptop computer. This 2CD set was worth getting for this picture alone, as it cost me only $12! Buy this if it is cheap.

Sound Quality:
Very good soundboard. Some others have said that there is something "muddy" about the sound which made them wonder what the heck they were they doing when they recorded this?

Comments:
Exactly the same as Backstage's ZOOMERANG DOWN UNDER, but without the video confessionals and some of Bono's speech before encore. A great show, but listen to it first to make sure you like the sound. "Lemon", "Dirty Day", "Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car" all incredible, as has been stated previously. This concert is pretty much a standard ZOO TV set. It is also the same concert which can be found on video as 'ZOO TV: Live in Sydney'. What is interesting about this recording is that although it is the same show as the video, the CD has not been edited between songs and contains the ZOO TV video confessionals. Content-wise, these CDs are the same as the pay-per-view special, which was broadcast live (via a tape-delay). However, this recording does not contain the two "skips"' as the pay-per-view broadcast and it is all in stereo unlike the pay-per-view (which was in mono for the first 30 minutes). This CD set was listed with two very polarized comments as to the nature of the CD. I was hence apprehensive in buying it, but I did anyway (directly from KTS, incidentally), and thought I would throw in my two cents worth. This is an excellent recording. This is the concert in its entirety, including the Zoo Confessionals, MacPhisto's comments, Bono's comments (in their entirety) after "The Fly", as well as the inclusion of "Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World". I have the video "Zoo TV Live From Sydney" for comparison, on audio tape as well, and I am certain that this CD is the whole concert. The clarity of the recording is excellent, with crisp distinction within the songs (drums, vocals, guitars, synthesizer/sequencer parts). The audience can be heard (clapping, cheering, etc.), but you cannot hear individuals talking with eachother. The only noticeable drawbacks are that the bass level is fairly low, and there is an error during Edge's second guitar solo on "Mysterious Ways" (the rift repeats an extra time, and then Bono's entry is cut off as though it were a "skip"). Otherwise, the album sounds flawless to me.

Comments:
The booklet says that "The 2nd show in Tokyo is much better, with improved sound quality.....". If this is true, you don't want to hear the first one, believe me. During the whole show, you can hear people screaming and singing along with Bono. Since they don't sing very well, this gets very annoying. The disc is also pretty much ruined by a loud buzz accompanying the band. As the title indicates, this is the 157th and very last ZooTV show. This is a great show with a special atmosphere. You can almost feel that this is the end of something really big. Mac Phisto tries to call Madonna, who watches the show from the sound desk, but the connection fails. It's a petty this isn't a soundboard recording. Even tough it's an exceptional performance, the poor sound quality makes it impossible to recommend. I would pick up one of the Sydney bootlegss (which features the exact same set list) instead. The bonus track version of "One" is very interesting (soundboard?) recording. I've never heard it anywere else. Is it studio work?

The packaging is very nice, with lots of pictures from the Modena show among others. 6 pictures from Modena, 2 from East Rutherford, NJ, 2 from 'Smile Jamaica' and 2 from some other show (I think I see B.B. King). The sound is excellent. A good collection of tracks from over the years, as well as some new tracks (1, 2, and 11). Most of these tracks can be found on many different boots, but this is a good disc to own for all you completists out there, or if you are looking for some rare performances of some terrific tracks! 73 minutes of music is quite a lot for the money, a good choice. The most interesting track, by far, is the Prince song, "The Cross", Track 11. This cannot be found on any other U2 bootleg that I am aware of. Deluxe color cover. Picture CD.

Comments:
The packaging is very nice, with lots of pictures from the Modena show among others. 6 pictures from Modena, 2 from East Rutherford, NJ, 2 from 'Smile Jamaica' and 2 from some other show (I think I see B.B. King). The sound is excellent. Oxygen has rated it as 4 stars (out of 4). It claims to be all soundboard (you know, that little icon that says "Original Soundboard Recording"). I haven't had the time to listen to it closely to confirm this. Some tracks are most likely excellent audience. A good collection of tracks from over the years, as well as some new tracks (1, 2, and 11). Most of these tracks can be found on many different boots, but this is a good disc to own for all you completists out there, or if you are looking for some rare performances of some terrific tracks! 73 minutes of music is quite a lot for the money, a good choice. The most interesting track, by far, is the Prince song, "The Cross", Track 11. This cannot be found on any other U2 bootleg that I am aware of. The CD is made in Czech republic.
This is one of two original pressings on this label.

Comments:
These discs contain the entire first PopMart show including all the mistakes, false starts, and sound problems. The recording itself is very good. A few excited members of the audience can be heard quite clearly chatting away and screaming extremely loudly at times. This is made up for in the fact that the new 'Pop' songs (and the others) come across very clearly on the recording. The last two songs on Disc 2 are listed as "Holy Joe" and "Pride (In The Name Of Love)," but are actually "Mofo" and "I Will Follow." These are of a poor sound quality and the lack of any crowd noise makes me believe that they could be from a soundcheck. A bonus in my opinion. A very good set of the "historic" Las Vegas show. Well worth a listen.

Comments:
This is a very good soundboard of the band's first show of the Popmart Tour. Due to a lack of rehearsal time, the band really didn't hit their stride on this tour until the last dates of the first leg of the North American tour. However, if you can find this disc, its worth having for posterity's sake as it is a great quality document of the beginning of Popmart. Also notable for the soundboard quality of "Do You Feel Loved" and "Miami," both of which the band dropped from their show during the European leg of the tour onward (when soundboard and broadcast Popmart shows are easier to come by.)

Sound Quality:
Fair to good audience.

Comments:
This was the first night of the PopMart Tour, and U2 got off to a shaky start. They completely screwed up "Staring At The Sun" and had to start over, and they were a bit rough on some of the other new songs as well. Otherwise, the overall performance is pretty decent. It should also be noted that a couple of songs from the 'Pop' album ("Do You Feel Loved" and "If God Will Send His Angels") played on this night were soon dropped from the setlist for the duration of the PopMart Tour. That fact alone makes this show worth having. The sound quality is fairly good overall, with strong bass. There is some ambient noise however, plus the audience is noisy and that fact is a bit of an annoyance on some songs. As you might guess, think that was an emotional concert. A decent PopMart bootleg, but nothing spectacular. Contrary to the information on the tracklisting, Sunday Bloody Sunday was not played. The front cover features various pictures from the "Discotheque" video (5 photos of Bono, 1 of The Edge, 1 of The Edge and Bono and 1 of the entire band dressed as The Village People). An unneeded item for every collection, but collectors will certainly want this show.

Comments:
A good show, but you can hear the crowd talking. Sometimes you can even hear the crowd singing louder than Bono. I've heard better audience recordings and I've heard worse. This version of "Staring At The Sun" is a memorable one, as they start all wrong and are forced to start over. "Two Shots Of Happy, One Shot of Sad is a beauty! Color cover. Disc 2, Track 11 is from the PopMart press conference. Disc 2, Track 12 is from the ABC Frank Sinatra Tribute show which aired on ABC.

Comments:
The cover is a computer graphic of a pair of dice. No style at all. The delay of Pop from November of 1996 to March of 1997 wasn't good. The band had problems with what they wanted to release. Even earlier, U2 tested the waters their experimental faux Passengers soundtrack album, 'Original Soundtracks 1', which sold poorly. So when it cam time to record the new album, U2 struggled to find a new sound to maintain their superstar position. Journalists flown in to cover the making of the album reported the band experimenting in the studio for long hours. The search was on for the Holy Grail of Sound. Some new riff yet unplayed. Some nifty rhythms yet to be beaten out of a drum kit. While Bono was reportedly writing songs by word association. Like a monkey writing a U2 hit! Yet the hype continued to pour forth with cover stories in U.S. magazines. A new sound was promised. An even bigger tour in the offing. And perhaps the most misguided promise ever made, the marriage of U2's rock with new electronica emanating from London's clubs to be produced by the team of Flood and Howie B. When the album finally hit, the fallout from the "Discotheque" single sent it crashing off the top of the charts. And when it came time to tour, U2's vision of a PopMart was stillborn. The notion that you could preach consumerism while selling it at a high price was precious. When the opening concert failed to light any fires, word-of-mouth hurt ticket sales. U2 have since been doing some damage control. But for those who missed the opening show, a fan, through the miracle of CD-Rs, has pressed up some copies of an audience recording. All 24 songs played at the Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas on April 25, 1997, are now available for U2 fans to discuss and dissect. The sound may be distant, but it won't hide the unevenness of the performance. U2 open unsteadily with "Mofo" and when the crowd don't connect, Bono ups the ante and goes for the jugular, mouthing off the mother fuckers that Mofo is slang for. Predictably, the crowd go wild at every foul-mouth utterance. "I Will Follow" maintains a tenuous lead. After that, Bono says. "Looks like it's going to be one of those years. Slept inside a pyramid, woke up and saw the New York skyline, Sphinx out the back, King Arthur's Castle around the corner... this is the only town on the planet where they're not going to notice a 40-foot lemon." Yeah, right. Then it's back to the new album with "Do You Feel Loved," followed by familiar favorites "Even Better Than The Real Thing," "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For." But after the lukewarm reception of the newer songs "Last Night On Earth," "Gone," "Until The End Of The World" and "If God Will Send His Angels." Bono uncomfortably utters, "We're getting' there, aren't we?" But they don't. U2 start a slow-ish version of "Staring At The Sun," the one genuine new anthem from Pop, then realize it won't work at that tempo. Bono tells The Edge to scrap it ("we're just fumblin' around") and they charge into it again. As if to take a breather, The Edge comes forward to lead the crowd in a karaoke version of The Monkees' hit "Daydream Believer." It's a needed respite because the fans have not been moved by the new songs. And that's how the show goes with U2 struggling to make a connection with the crowd. Always relying on crowd-pleasers ("Bullet The Blue Sky," "Where The Streets Have No Name" and "With Or Without You") when the new songs hit a brick wall. You can hear the band unsteady on old songs and new. "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" starts off without the supercharge of guitar effects while "Discotheque" is plagued by sound problems. The show finally closes with the familiar "Mysterious Ways" and "One" that at least keep the fans smiling as they troop out. If U2 think they're being bold with PopMart they should consider Springsteen's stripped down Ghost Of Tom Joad shows where the Boss plays in smallish venues of anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand or Bob Dylan's last two albums of old folk songs. That's guts. PopMart is a business gamble. U2 have raised the stakes, offering an expansive show in giant stadiums, hoping to reap the rewards from some of the highest ticket prices ever seen. But art has never been about commerce unless there's a price for your soul. An OK PopMart bootleg, but you can hear the crowd talking. This bootleg is a CDR. I have come to theorize that this boot, ROCK 'N' ROLL AIN'T NOISE POLLUTION! and LIVE AT THE GREAT FESTIVALS OF THE '80'S are a produced by the same producer because the cover art and graphics are similar. Plus, all seem to be printed off an ink jet printer. Furthermore, I bought them all at the same store. Does anyone know? The sound quality is pretty typical for a fair audience recording. I would suggest getting one of the other titles of the Vegas show. Perhaps POPS & CHOPS or VIVA LAS VEGAS. There are multiple misspellings on the back cover, which is already poorly done. The tracklisting is also wrong in various places. I would only get this if it were at a cheap price. All in all, it is still good to have a copy of the first PopMart show, for historical reasons.

Comments :
Sound quality is good all the way through, considering it is an audience recording. Of course there is audible screaming and clapping though. "Staring At The Sun" was introduced by Bono as "the song we screwed up the other night, so be patient," and is played on the main stage with the whole band. "Even Better Than The Real Thing" opens with Bono saying that the crowd is the first of the "real people" to see PopMart, continuing with, "Opening night starts here!" Unfortunately, Track 4 is also when the voices in the crowd seem to be talking directly into the mic of the person taping the show. Bono's voice is still recovering from the dry Las Vegas air, and this is evident on "Do You Feel Loved." A very nice addition is "Holy Joe" from the K-Mart Press Conference in which U2 announced the PopMart Tour. Disc 2, Track 11 was surely recorded at a soundcheck. The artwork is a black and white photocopy of text only. Only a small hand written label on the CDs themselves indicating which disc is which.

Good audience.

Comments:
The photo art is of the April 25, 1997 Las Vegas show, but the recording is definitely from Denver. Bono changes lyrics to songs, like "Even Colder Than the Real Thing." He also says, "Where the sun won't shine at all," during "Miami" and "One mile high, not coming down," during "Gone." Bono has a great speech during "Please" about the elections in England, Tony Blair, and his hope for the end of the trouble. The CD liner notes says, "Thanks to Jurgen" (I'm assuming this is the person who recorded the show). The audio quality is good. There's some hooting and screaming, but you can hear every word during the songs and all of Bono's speeches. The show itself had its weak points and the band wasn't at its peak due to the extreme cold. For completists or people at the show, however, this is a must have.

Sound Quality :
Good audience.

Comments:
The sound quality is poor during "Pop Muzik" and half of "Mofo," but after that it is fair to good throughout the rest of the show. However, audience noise (shouting, screaming, singing, etc.) is prevalent throughout. Almost all of "Pop Muzik" is included, only a bit of the beginning of "New York, London, Paris, Munich..." part is omitted. Between "I Will Follow" and "Even Better Than The Real Thing," Bono comments on how cool is was to see a giant "U2" on the side of the mountain (referring to the University Of Utah's altered "U" on a nearby mountain). On "Do You Feel Loved," Bono's voice sounds much better than in Las Vegas (April 25, 1997). "Staring At The Sun" is with the full band on the main stage (not acoustic). Before the start of "Daydream Believer," Edge proclaims, "Never before in the state of Utah!" The only three reasons I would encourage people to buy this CD are if you were at the show, you have no other boot with "Do You Feel Loved," or you find it at as good a price as I did. Due to various complaints that reviews from Danyel Ramelo (AKA POPclerk) were not impartial (since he manufactured them himself), all of the comments that he submitted for his CD-R bootlegs have been removed. If you own this CD-R set (like it or not), and have anything to add to this review, feel free to submit your additional comments and info needed on this bootleg.

Comments:
The track listing is incorrect. "If You Wear That Velvet Dress" is listed twice; once as a track from the Eugene show and later as a track from the Utah show. The version from the Eugene show is not on either disc and, as far as I know, the song was not actually performed at the concert. "Sunday Bloody Sunday" is actually indexed as Track 2 on Disc 2, but is not listed on the sleeve. This version is *not* the original song; it's a single, improvised verse with completely different lyrics, but the same music. It works beautifully as the ending to "Please" and the intro "Where The Streets Have No Name." Other highlights of the discs are a very good version of "If God Will Send His Angels" and a rare performance of "Do You Feel Loved." Disc 1, Track 13 features Edge singing a karaoke version of the song the Monkees made famous. Overall, a good show. Bono says a lot of things about it being the first show in Eugene, OR. It seems to be the complete show but I could be wrong. The CD is edited very nicely. The packaging is very nice- the PopMart Logo on the front, with the sleeve done in PopMart colors. The back inside panel (where the CDs rest) has a good print out of the shopping cartoon played on the PopMart screen. The inside sleeve has one nice picture of Bono and one of The Edge. I was a little disappointed when I didn't hear Edge give his backing vocals to "Gone," (I had come to like and expect them in the live version of that song) but who can resist Edge singing "Daydream Believer?" I am not sure what Bono is singing in the beginning of "Stand By Me" on the bonus tracks. Lee Ellen contributed to this review.

Comments:
Great performance and a good audience recording. This bootleg is good; sound and everything. This show was played for about 30,000 people, which was probably the smallest venue of there PopMart tour. Bono is very talkative; describing Eugene like Dublin "warm people, rockin' town, shit weather." What is really interesting is what the inlay says. Apparently Autzen Stadium is an open roofed venue on a valley where the sound extends out past the stadium. The main speakers were positioned above the stage, so U2's concert reached out into the quiet community of 140,000. Apparently, the media was all over this the next day, talking about noise ordinances and fines. The cover features some of the complaints, hence the title. This bootleg is a CDR, and the only minus is that the cover art and back seem to be printed of a color ink jet printer there are no pictures of the band. The cover features no photos, but does include an article from the local paper, and the liner notes has a summary of the concert. Not that bad, but could stand some improvement. I do not know about the availability of this one. I have come to theorize that this boot, VEGAS STYLE and LIVE AT THE GREAT FESTIVALS OF THE '80'S, are all produced by the same person because the cover art and graphics are all similar. All seem to be printed off a ink jet printer, and I bought them all at the same store. Does any one know? After buying VEGAS STYLE, I found this a much better listen. The recording is better, not great, but very listenable. The CD-R is indexed better than VEGAS STYLE as well. The show opens with a remix of M's "Pop Muzik," and then the band kicks into "Mofo" and a bass-heavy "I Will Follow." The band seems a bit more comfortable with the new material here. "Last Night On Earth" gets my vote as U2's best new song. Another karaoke rendition of "Daydream Believer" by the Edge. "Please" ends with the drum rolls for "Sunday Bloody Sunday" with The Edge joining in with the guitar riff. Bono sings the first lines but abandons it and improvises a few lines. The encore is without "If You Wear That Velvet Dress." not that it is missed - they didn't play it on this date. A solid show. Don't pass it up (if it is cheap).

An excellent sounding bootleg of a complete show from the first leg of the PopMart tour. first leg PopMart show. Some songs lack rehearsing but most sound great. I don't like the idea of bonus tracks at the end of the first disc, but Larry's renditions of the "old Irish drinking songs" are very interesting. The bonus tracks on the second disc can easily be found on other bootlegs. All pics are POP-era, but who in the world is "Garry Mullen"?

Comments:
Color cover. Track 2 is not listed on the cover. There is too much echo and occasional intrusions by the people around the taper. This bootleg comes housed in a bland double (thick) jewel case. A whole lot better of a performance than the Vegas show, which was the only concert I'd listened to before this. However, the quality is a bit lacking, especially when the Sarajevo broadcast is now easily obtainable. Worth picking up only by the dedicated (hard core) fan. Pretty good quality overall. According to the guy who sold this to me (usually quite reliable) there won't be too many of this particular boot released in the US. Most will be sold in Japan where it was made. The guy who sold it to me said there were only 100 in the US and he had 80 of them, so I doubt there will be that many of this particular boot sold here in America. He also said it was limited pressing of 500 CDs, but we all know how that can change. He's a very reliable source, so I have no reason to doubt him. Of course, it could always be reprinted on another label.

Comments:
This is a pretty good bootleg. There is definitely some audience noise present, but it is not so bad. Several times throughout the show, a woman can be heard giving her thougths on how "fucking awesome" Bono is. The vocals on some tracks are a little weak, and "If God will Send His Angels" is very bad. There is no "Pop Muzik Intro" on this bootleg, so the CD starts with "Mofo." Other than that, this is a pretty good bootleg of a definitely good show. Additional comments and info needed on this bootleg.

Comments:
This is a great CD set. This was pressed in very limited numbers from an original audience DAT of the show. The band sounds great on this day and Bono seems to be in good spirits, even though the screen was completely screwed up from a rain storm the night before. Bono says, "Last time we came to Washington, I broke my shoulder, this time a monsoon nearly took out the whole telly... what's wrong with you people!?" (Of course, the "broken shoulder" incident was on the Joshua Tree Tour, and not the "last time" they were in D.C.) This is a great CD set of a great show. Get this show on any bootleg CD you can find.

Comments:
The first track is truly fantastic! U2 open the European Music Awards with a great performance of "Mofo", after a fabulous introduction by Dennis Hopper. The sound quality is perfect.
U2's performance at The Tibetian Freedom is also excellent. The best part comes at the end when Bono sings a few lines from Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" as a tribute to the deceased Jeff Buckley. Unfortunately the sound quality is really bad for a broadcast. There's a lot of annoying hiss on all the tracks and loud noises are distorted. It sounds as if these tracks were taken from a (crappy) RealAudio-broadcast on the Internet. Definitely not CD-quality material. The other half of the disc has tracks from the second Edmonton concert, uninterrupted from "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" to "Sweet Caroline". For more information about these tracks, please see AMAZING GRACE. This bootleg is good if you wanna hear U2's kick-ass performance at the MTV European Music Awards and at The Tibetian Freedom Concert. Don't buy it for the Edmonton tracks, because that concert can be found in its entirety, with better sound quality, on AMAZING GRACE.

Comments:
This is quite a cool CD. Even though the sound is not absolutely excellent, there are some really rare tracks that U2 didn't play very often on the PopMart Tour. First of all, the combination of "Please" and "Hallelujah" from the Tibetan Freedom Concert, which Bono dedicates to the late Jeff Buckley. Other great stuff is the performances of "If God Will Send His Angels," "Slow dancing," and "Sweet Caroline." During the Edmonton tracks, a slight hiss can be heard "above" the recording. This CD is great if you're looking for some rare PopMart stuff combined with the standard tracks.

Comments:
This is the first Canadian date of PopMart and the first time that U2 has ever played in Winnipeg. The sound at the concert was a little off and it is a bit evident on the tape. This concert took place only a few weeks after the Red River flood was over and Bono made a great, emotional speech about the river and the people of Winnipeg. This show contains an acoustic version of "If God Will Send His Angels" which is not only moving, but beautiful. The soundcheck is great bonus. The band plays such songs as "Mofo", " I Will Follow," and a interesting jam. The CD-R, must have been produced in Winnipeg. The cover consists of a picture of the PopMart stage as seen early in the morning on the day of the show. The book contains pictures of fans, local personalities, and the band driving into the stadium for the soundcheck. Nice book, about 6 pages.

Comments:
A great show, and a must have for any Canadian U2 fans. Tracks 9 through 21 on Disc 2 are the soundcheck. This show was recorded with DAT recorders in the audience, then mastered professionally. Disc one's cover is Bono in front of the Jumbotron (which is showing Bono) and Disc two's cover show the band emerging from the lemon for the encore, with Edge just starting down the stairs. There is another relase of this date, but the quality is far inferior, so beware. The crappy one has bono on the front (with the long eighties hair) and is on CD-R as well. There is another CD-R release of this show, but it sounds like it was recorded on a walkman and released without being mastered.

Comments:
This bootleg is by far the best one from the first leg of the Popmart Tour that I've heard so far. I'm a bit surprised that with today's technology most bootlegs recorded during the first leg sound pretty crappy. Luckily this one's an exception. I can't even tell for sure whether it's an audience or soundboard recording, although I assume the former. The setlist is pretty standard, as with most of the Popmart concerts. Bono shouts "Having a ball at the mall, y'all! Supermarket Superman!" during "Even Better Than The Real Thing". Before "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" he says he would like to see The Edge as mayor of Edmonton, which draws a big cheer from the crowd. There's a nasty edit 2:20 into the song, but it's the only real flaw I could detect. Bono sings he feels "like a bird flying high in the northern sky" during "Last Night On Earth". It's a shame "If God Will Send His Angels" is played without drums and bass because this way it sounds very boring. A very nice surprise is the acoustic rendition of "Slow Dancing", which has only been played a few times before. Bono adds a line about Edmonton to "Staring At The Sun" and The Edge dedicates his karaoke version of "Sweet Caroline" to "Todd - you know who you are". "Discothèque" sounds great, along with "If You Wear That Velvet Dress". During the intro to "One" Bono thanks the Fun Lovin' Criminals, Howie B and everyone who came out to see them play. He sings a very short part of "Hallelujah" and dedicates it to Jeff Buckley, bringing an emotional end to a very good concert.
Eight tracks from this concert - along with the Tibetan Freedom Concert - can be found on PRISONERS OF CONSIENCE and MYSTERIOUS WAYS, but this bootleg has better sound quality. The artwork is fantastic, but it's no wonder given the fact that it was taken directly from the official Popmart Tour Program. My advice? If you want to buy a bootleg from the first leg of the tour, be sure to get this one. It's a lot better than all the others I know of.

Comments:
[Original review from Rob]: The sound quality of this CD is not the best.
[New review from Steve]: In respect of the review already included in FLOM, I disagree about this bootleg's sound quality. In my opinion, it's "very good to excellent audience". One can clearly hear the audience in between tracks, but not nearly as much during the songs. Disc 1 starts with "Pop Muzik" fading in. "Honey, we're home. Where else would you wanna be?", Bono says before "Even Better Than The Real Thing". During the intro to "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", he thanks the crowd and delivers the speech about eating the monster before it could eat U2 and about "finding peace in the neon". The song segues right into "Stand By Me". Unlike during Zoo TV, there are no drums in this song. As common on the first leg of the tour, "Last Night On Earth" is played much later in the set than during later legs. Bono's microphone malfunctions at the beginning of "Until The End Of The World", leaving us without the first few lines. The Edge plays a little bit of "If God Will Send His Angels", before changing to "All I Want Is You". The transition sounds beautiful. "Staring At The Sun" is the acoustic version as U2 will play throughout the rest the tour. The Edge starts his karoake version of "Daydream Believer" but he quickly says "I think I'm busted" when The Monkees' Davey Jones (who originally wrote the song) comes onstage to sing along.
There are two skips during "Please", but I don't know if all copies are like that or just mine. Bono dedicates "Where The Streets Have No Name" to Allen Ginsberg, who has died shortly before. He also recites one of his poems, reminiscent of what he did during the 1989 Dublin shows, after Samuel Beckett's death. A little girl is bought onstage during "If You Wear That Velvet Dress". Bono asks for her name and age and then tells about his own daughter(s). It's such a sweet moment. "With Or Without You" does not contain the "We'll shine like stars"-part, unfortunately. A short version of "Unchained Melody" ends the concert. The bonus tracks are from the third night in Chicago. The sound quality's almost as good as on the Los Angeles tracks. "Miami" is mislabled as "Please" on the back cover. "Miami" and "Bullet The Sky" are both very nice additions to this bootleg. AMAZING GRACE, with the Edmonton concert played only 6 days before this one (and also by Kobra Records), offers better sound quality than this bootleg, but not by much. So you might wanna pick up both.

Comments:
The sound quality is a fair to good audience recording. The quality is similar to „Pops and Chops“ (Las Vegas). There is about the same bass but the vocals are a little quiet in some spots. There is less whistling and audience noise than the Vegas CD. Before I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For Bono gives a speach talking about Pop Mart and comments on the beach balls that were being tossed through the air. There is a little part of the Doors Break On Through at the end of Until The End Of The World. During Last Night On Earth Bono adds a few lines about Madison. This was a great show but not the best recording I've heard from the Pop Mart Boot Legs.

Sound Quality:
Good to very good audience.

Comments:
A few songs, such as "Hallelujah," "MLK," "Stand By Me," and "All I Want Is You" are shortened versions of the originals (meaning, U2 did not perform the entire song as was originally recorded in the studio). The back of CD case reads "These concerts were originally recorded on tape. The taped shows were re-recorded onto a computer as a .wav file. The .wav file was divided to create individual tracks. Each track was filtered and amplified to achieve the best possible sound. The .wav files were then recorded onto these CD-R discs using the "Disc at Once" mode. - JJH" These CD's are probably the best available of any of the Chicago shows. The high end sound is very crisp and clear (sometimes a little too cutting), and the audience doesn't get too overwhelming. The only real problem is that there is almost no bass in the mix, which is why I am a little reluctant about giving these a "very good" rating. If you don't care much about bass, it won't bother you, but if you like to crank up the bass, this recording might not be for you.

Great concert! Bono has a tremendous start. His voice is strong and he talks very much during the songs. This was the first night on the PopMart tour in which U2 played r "New Years Day." Unfortunately, somebody cut "Gone" from the original tape. The quality of this bootleg is excellent, and is comparable to FOUR AT FOUR, for example.

Comments:
This was the first European PopMart show, but this 2-CD set covers both the entire Rotterdam Show and some highlights of other European PopMart shows. The PopMart logo is printed on both CDs. On the both the front and inside covers, there are pictures of out boys taken from the printed PopMart tour program (which was sold at the concerts). Both CDs feature a very good audience recording and are very dynamic. The person(s) who recorded this show were in good position. The sound quality is much better than an average audience recording ("Discotheque," for example, sounds very clear). Occasionally, you can hear someone talking, but it is not very obvious at all. The show itself was great. According to the bootlegger himself, this was the best available sound recording that was available at the time of pressing. It's not soundboard quality, but for an audience recording, it is very good. Those folks in Rotterdam don't seem to miss a U2 beat, as further confirmed by this fine release. This recording appears to be from a digital audience source. There is very little crowd noise on this recording (a good example of this is at the end of "Pride (In The Name Of Love)"). There are no annoying conversations going on in the foreground, as is the case on some other recordings. The overall balance is very good also. The bass element is more prominent than the high-end, but I think this is due more to arena audio acoustics than to poor recording technique. The band's "Pop Muzik Intro" sounds simply "arena-pounding" and massive. Depending on your stereo setup, you might need to turn the bass down a little. It is not distorted, but it is very powerful. Then again, if you don't mind replacing windows, let it rip. The acoustic version of "Staring At The Sun," complete with delightful Edge harmonies, is just plain fantastic. Such delicate songs rarely succeed in "boomy" stadium settings, so either U2's sound engineer should get a raise, or whoever recorded this deserves a cigar. My current sentiment is that perhaps both should be commended. The bonus tracks are also good quality. Disc 1, Track 1 and Disc 2, Tracks 12 and 14 are The Edge singing karaoke versions of songs made famous by Gary Glitter, Golden Earring, and The Monkeys (respectively). Especially notable is the cover of Golden Earring's "Radar Love" recorded on July 25, 1997 at the Werchter, Belgium Festival Grounds. The "driving" bass on this track is really outstanding. And even more special is the fact that Edge is on vocals. A true treat. Overall, the sound quality of this set is not quite as good as the legendary June 11, 1992, Stockholm, Sweden Globen recording, but POPDREAM BELIEVER FIRST NIGHT IN EUROPE does not disappoint. Overall, this is a great masterpiece! For anyone who is looking for a good bootleg of the European shows, I don't think they'll get much better than this! The crowd noise only comes in when necessary. The sound quality deteriorates only slightly somewhere on Disc 2 (I heard that the rain started to pour). Bono's voice is in top shape for this concert and he has no problem hitting the high notes. Highlights are "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," "All I Want Is You," and "Staring At The Sun." The bonus tracks aren't of much significance although "Daydream Believer" has good sound quality. Jeroen te Rijdt and Jovi Neri contributed to this review.

Comments:
The sound quality on this bootleg is of a great standard and better than a lot of the popmart boots available. The sound is as good as one can realisticly expect of a non soundbord boot. I would say that the sound is marginally better than that of Live at Leeds and obviously not as clear as the Mexico/ Sarajevo etc recordings. Crowd noise is evidant at times but is just the right level and does not disrupt the C.D. The karaoke song is I Love You Love which is a Gary Glitter Cover and the vocals can be heard very clear unlike a lot of the karaoke songs on the bootlegs. M.L.K is a short version but Rain is full length. The bonus tracks are nothing spectacular Radar love is a bit clearer than the version from the other Rotterdam Show but the crowd noise is what makes the Rotterdam version and this one is not as enjoyable. Black Betty / Whole Lotta Love is lifted straight from a version of Discotheque and Stand By Me and unchained Melody are lifted straight from the ends of songs. Daydream Believer is one of the better sounding boot versions but ends a second or two before it should. I paid £20 for this double cd (NOT CDR) and was happy with my purchase and would recommend this to anybody after a good Popmart Audience Boot. M.L.K is not listed on the back cover but is tracklisted and Rain is listed as RAM. The front cover is a colour picture of the top half of Bono with his popmart bubble suit on with his shades on his forehead (I am lead to believe that this cover is from Leeds Popmart) the inlay features more pics and the back cover is a picture of Bono raising his arm alongside Adam and The Edge. More cd's are Orange with Rotterdam 1997 in black text. For additional comments about the sound or the concert, please see the review for POPDREAM BELIEVER FIRST NIGHT IN EUROPE. As far as content goes, these two sets seem to be identical. Even the bonus tracks are the same. The only downfall of this set is the "slim" packaging. There is a 4 panel booket, with the inner pages being a collage of black and white photes. Deluxe color cover with a picture of Bono giving almost a "Come on, pleeeease?" look to the crowd. Attractively presented, good sound; my advice - scoop this cd up the first chance you get.

Comments:
Disc 1, Track 12 is The Edge singling Golden Earring's "Radar Love." You can hear the instruments and the vocals very clearly. You can only hear the audience between certain songs and also during the melody of some of the "softer-sounding" songs. Keep an eye out for this one! Disc 1 is yellow with black letters. Disc 2 is black with yellow letters. The front cover features a head shot of Bono smoking a cigarette. The booklet features four pages of Adam, Bono, Larry, The Edge, and a complete tracklist. The inside back cover features the complete PopMart tour dates. Overall, a very good CD with good sound quality, yet compared to other better bootlegs, it is rather soft in terms of loudness. The cover folds out and one side has the four guys, each in photo by themselves. Adam's and Bono's have the tracklisting printed over the photo. These four photos also appear in the '98 PopMart Australian Tour Program - whether it's the same elsewhere is beyond me. Upon opening the case, the inside bottom of the CD case lists the tour dates up through September 1997. The songs themselves are their usual greatness, yet for "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," Bono begins by singing alternative lyrics really softly. He then begins saying, "Seems like a long time, from the paradiso and milky way, there's the milky way. Look. Turn off all the lights will you if you can, turn off all the lights if you can. Same band, same four fuckers. Still in love with what we do. Are you in love with what you do? Then you're blessed people. And thank you for sticking it out with us people over the years. Thank you." [The „Paradiso“ is a famous concert venue in Holland (see the alhabetical list on October 30, 1981). The 'Milky way' is actually the Melkweg (=milky way in dutch), which is also a famous venue. He refers to these places to indicate that they have made a long trip to make it so far. On July 18 he also says this.] Pretty emotionally-charged stuff heh? On "Stand By Me," the crowd sings along. Most don't know the lyrics and half way through the song they all start laughing. Happens everywhere. Here's another quote from Bono after he swore, "Don't you hate it when pop stars swear on stage. I hate them."
[Joel Heersink]: The gig was great; the band looked as if they were really enjoying it, and so they should've since it was only their second gig after a month or so off and they did probably the most spontaneous act of the entire tour - playing a Whole Lotta Love by Led Zepllin. It was Bono's idea, as he started the thing by whispering with Edge, and the other memebrs followed suit later. Another highlight was when the ole football chant started after Unchained Melody, Bono mimed a free kick - much to our amusement! The show was and is excellent - on of the best quality-wise, as well as having the only perfomances of Whole Lotta Love and Radar Love (originally by Golden Earring - a dutch band).

Comments:
Edge has guitar problems on Disc 2, Track 12, and he has synthesizer problems on Disc 2, Track 13. The recording volume is too low and the bass is slightly too high. At times, the music drowns out the vocals which make the latter barely audible. This bootleg is not highly recommended, (although some people do recommend it) unless for people who must have every PopMart bootleg. The positive parts are the bonus tracks on Disc 2. On Disc 2, Track 14, Bono lashes out at PopMart critics. This is a good European PopMart bootleg. It captures the atmosphere of the Cologne show perfectly. Unlike some other PopMart bootlegs, this one features a full version of the "Pop Muzik Intro," fading in a few seconds before it starts. Throughout the concert, Bono mentions the beautiful cathedral in Cologne and even tries to speak some lines in German. Before "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," he sings a bit of "Neon Lights". Something goes wrong at the beginning of "Staring At The Sun," but when the band start again; it sounds beautiful. The Edge's karaoke song, "Daydream Believer" is the same as at the early dates in America. Bono repeatedly sings "Gianni" during "Miami," since it was only about 2 weeks after Versace's death. Disc 2, Track 5 is a nice little jam after "Discotheque". "MLK" completes a great concert. The bonus tracks from Mannheim aren't very interesting since The Edge had a lot of trouble with his guitar (as noted on the back cover). It's fun though if you want to hear the band struggle. The Hannover tracks are much more interesting. The Edge makes a rare speech before his "Suspicious Minds" karaoke, in which he talks about the negative publicity U2 had gotten during the tour and he mentions Elvis (the concert took place 4 days after the 20th anniversary of Elvis' death). The performance of "Wake Up Dead Man," although very short, is nice to have because Bono only sang parts of it very occasionally. Five of the tracks from this concert ("Gone" through "New Year's Day") can also be found in broadcast quality on the FIRST NIGHTS IN EUROPE bootleg. However, the sound quality on this CD is only slightly inferior to soundboard. The volume is a little lower than on other boots, but the sound is fairly clear. Some clapping and whistling can be heard, but the audience noise doesn't take away from the music at all. The front and back covers are very nice, but the booklet doesn't offer much, just a picture of a ticket for the concert. Great show from the Cologne concert and some nice bonus tracks from other German gigs. The sound quality of the Cologne gig is sadly a bit dull and. The two tracks from Hannover are better than the ones from Mannheim. The "Whole Lotta Love" jam at the end of "Discotheque" a highlight of this bootleg. Disc 1, Track 6 is listed as "Last Thing On Earth," and Disc 2, Track 10 is listed as Track 19. Visually, the design of the artwork and the CD itself look great. The 'covers' take the pictures from the popmart program. The front cover is Bono's face from "POP FOR BOYS", the inside of the back cover is Bono from the center page fold out, and the borders are from the base of "POP FOR CLUBBERS" (below mr edge and his big foot). The whole CD sounds a little bit "hollow" and two of the bonus tracks are marred by problems (as noted). (It's sounds a little bit different, but problems?) Nice during the concert are when Bono says, "Ich habe ein frage, Wolt ihr eine gebrauchte Trabant kaufen?" Bono presents U2's PopMart material as "our neon cathedral." Before "Daydream Believer," Edge says, "OK, enough of this crap. It's time to Rock!" Overall, best I can say is to make up your own minds on this one.

Comments:
This bootleg features a pretty standard Popmart show from the first part of the European leg. There aren't many surprises on this one. During the intro of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" Bono talks about U2's first performance in Sweden and delivers the speech of how the band got scared of the corporate monster and decided to eat it before it could eat them. The Edge karoakes to "Daydream Believer", just like he did on most dates in the States. "Bullet The Blue Sky" has snippets of "I Wanna Live In America". It's hard to believe, but the manufacturers not only put "Please" and "Where The Streets Have No Name" on separate discs, but also cut out the beautiful transition between the two songs. This is a terrible shame. "Lemon (Perfecto Mix)" and "Discothèque" are indexed together. The latter has a nice jammy end with snippets from "Black Betty", "Whole Lotta Love" and lyrics from one of the "Discothèque" remixes. Bono talks to a girl in the crowd and dances with her during "If You Wear That Velvet Dress". In fact it's the same girl he invited onstage during "Bullet The Blue Sky". He also sings snippets of an unidentified song during "Mysterious Ways". MLK is kept very short, which ends a nice but not outstanding concert. The sound quality is excellent for an audience recording. The manufacturers "may" have filtered out the audience noise somewhat, which makes the sound a little artificial, although this is only an assumption. The sound is very balanced and in my opinion definitely better than e.g. POPDREAM BELIEVER - FIRST NIGHT IN EUROPE. All in all this is a good Popmart bootleg, but only for people who actually went to this show and completists like myself. There are other Popmart shows (especially from the 4th leg), which feature more inspired and spirited performances by the band. The bonus tracks are very nice. All the tracks from the Zoo TV concert in 1992 aren't on the bootleg IS THIS A PARTY OR WHAT? and thus the two form a nice combination. If you combine the two bootlegs, only "Desire", "With Or Without You" and "Love Is Blindness" are absent. Hopefully one day they will pop up in the same sound quality on some other bootleg. On the back cover it says "Limited Edition of 400 copies", but since I had no trouble finding this bootleg I don't believe it's that rare. Deluxe color cover. Picture CDs.

Comments:
Color cover. Picture CDs. It's a good CD to have. "Until The End Of The World" is performed great, as is "Please." At the end of the "Lemon (Perfecto Mix) Intermission," you can hear Bono sing "Lemon breakdown, the lemon's broke.." It's not the best sound quality, but on a scale of 1-10, I'd give this one a "7." The cover has a picture of Bono and The Edge playing the guitar over top of a picture of a newspaper (The review in Norwegian newspapers the day after the concert). A good CD for a collector, and it's an enjoyable CD to listen to. Not too much audience noise here. Bono's got a clear voice, the drums sound good. Edge's guitar sounds a bit distant at times, but all-in-all a very good live performance, and a good live recording.

Comments:
Deluxe color cover. The front cover features the band in front of the large PopMart screen. Other pictures include two pictures of Bono and one of Adam. The sound quality is not bad, but it doesn't sound really dynamic. It's a little flat and there is a lot of audience clapping and yelling. Disc 1, Track 12 features a Bono doing an Elvis imitation for about 50 seconds. On Disc 2, right before "Please" is played, Bono yells "Take that laser off my fucking face, pal!" Additional comments and info needed on his bootleg. I find this recording is not as good as I thought it was when I bought it. I bought it only because is was better then the "LAST NIGHT IN EUROPE" set which I also listened to at the shop. I think the concert is only so-so; nothing special. Instead of what is stated on the tracklisting, there is no Track 12 (which is supposedly and "Elvis Medley.") The photo's on the sleeve are nice to see but not very special. Buy this recording only when you are a completist. I prefer my MISS SARAJEVO. The discs are not picture discs.

Comments:
This is a very cool bootleg. It's a very strange type of soundboard. It's a feed from Bono's earpiece, so for the most part Bono's voice is mixed high. Sometimes you can hear techs talking in it, but it's not at all distracting. Minimal audince noise throughout the recording. It's fast becoming one of my favorite Popmart boots (I think it's better than the Mexico City boots). Package is somewhat lacking, just a color insert and back. Lemon for the most part is cut, just the last minute of it is in the beginning of Discotheque. The bonus tracks are nice, since One from Nuremburg is cut off (right after Bono makes a nice speech), so they added One from another earphone soundboard souce. However it's not quite as good soundwise. A lot of "cracks" in the recording. The Edge's speech before Suspicious Minds is GREAT! All in All, I highly advise this set if you can get it.

Comments:
First off, I HIGHLY recommend this bootleg is you can get it. It was a very limited run of 100 copies. I myself have #83. You can tell if it's an original be the matrix numbers. On the back it says " In December 1997 a Soundboard recording of Leeds Popmart was broadcast on French Radio in error. They meant to broadcast the Parisian Popmart. This is a recording of that infamous broadcast." The title isn't as rude as it sounds, as a "Cock Up" is an English slang for screw up or mess up. In the beginning you hear a French DJ announce that they will be broadcasting Paris Popmart. Then at the end of Rain you hear him talk for about a minute. At the beginning you hear some French person say something like "This is U2 live at Paris". When the track changes or "breaks", you can hear for a brief 1/4 of a second a gap. No big deal. Lemon has been edited, so you can only hear the lemon moving. For more info on the show, see the reviews of "Live at Leeds". In this bootleg, Mysterious Ways was not included. That is because of the French so that they wouldn't get into copyright trouble (because Bono was singing snippets of "Something"). In my opinion, highlights include: Mofo, Gone, Last Night On Earth, Singing In The Rain, Miami, Where The Streets Have No Name, Discotheque, HMTMKMKM, and Rain. The insert (one page) and back look like they were printed off a color printer. If you can get a copy of this bootleg, it's worth it!

Good to very good audience. See comments.

Comments:
Color cover. Picture CDs. The sound is good for an audience recording, thanks in large part to the powerful PopMart sound system. Bono chats to the audience on various things, most notably former Beatle George Harrison's snotty comments about U2 that summer. Before "Even Better Than The Real Thing," Bono sarcastically tells the fans, "Good people of Yorkshire, you made a terrible mistake- George Harrison says you shouldn't be here. It's all big fucking hats and lemons and air." Bono lets loose a more powerful satiric tear at the ex-Beatle when he includes a snippet of Harrison's most well known Beatles' contribution, "Something," near the end of "Mysterious Ways." A marvelously improvised (or seemingly so) 2 minute version of "Rain" closes the show, probably as much for the Beatles as for the reported rain that night. Bono reminisces with the crowd throughout the night, telling them before "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," "We've been coming here for a long time-going right back. Last time was the best- the time we spent here at Roundhay was the best concert of our tour, last year- last time." He then jokingly adds, "Of course, tonight is crap." He digs deeper back than Zooropa: "Going back to Tiffany's...Tiffany's with those fucking palm trees. We brought a few palm trees with us, you'll see a little later- and a 40 foot lemon, of course." Bono's jocularity recurs throughout the night, with statements like, "Anyway, I hope you like all this shit because...you paid for it." At the beginning of "Staring At The Sun," Bono begs Leeds not to laugh at his guitar playing. The highlights of the evening, beyond the George Harrison bashing are Bono's reflections during "Bullet the Blue Sky," when he asks, "How much do you want for your soul?" and the moment when Bono begins singing Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" at the end of "Discotheque" and heavily distorted Edge plows ahead with him, playing the well-known riff. On Track 5, before the encore begins, the audiance begins spontaneously chanting, "How long to sing this song." In all, this is a good show- the band obviously have a good rapport with the audiance. The front cover attractively mimics the Who's classic 'Live At Leeds' album. The back cover has a faint picture of Bono taken from, I believe, a Spin or Rolling Stone article earlier in the year- April or May. The liner notes contain an essay poking fun at the band poking fun at themselves, as well as a complete tour itenerary containing some never performed concerts. The picture CDs are pink and blue (for "Miami," perhaps?) and both include the cartoon of Bono which was included in Rolling Stone's March, 1997 review of Pop. Not a bad bootleg. There is a bit too much clapping in the vicinity of the taper. Not very much bottom end. Certainly not the best recording or performance from the tour, LIVE AT LEEDS should satisfy the hard-core completist but very few others. The best thing about this set is the cover which is attractive only for ist simplicity and novelty. But where The Who's 'Live At Leeds' was one of the best live performances ever recorded, this is not event the best U2 performance - not even close. Disc 1 is purple and white. Disc 2 is blue and white. The sound quality is good, but in many songs the crowd (with talking and hand clapping) overrules the recording equipment that was used. Inside the cover, you'll find the complete PopMart tour dates and the following review of the show from New Musical Express (NME) by Simon Williams called 'Notorious Big Show!'

"...It isn't called PopMart any more. No sirree. For us Blighty bleeders who don't, like, comprehend the whole bally Yankee supermart/ market concept, U2 have craftily updated their whole touring promotion and, according to the legion of posters smeared across the derelict pubs and shops lining the route to Roundhay Park, rechristened it PopSport. Oh, and there's a bloody big football on the posters as well, just in case we haven't noticed just how adroitly they've transferred their cultural allegiances from the US of A to the U of, uh, K. So there's this huge lemon, right. And the yellow skin peels away to reveal a sort of vast silver citrus-shaped disco ball. And then the ball trundles along this catwalk into the audience and then it stops and the top half sort of slowly lifts off and U2 are standing there and this metal ladder appears and the band walk down and all this equipment has suddenly appeared at the end of the catwalk and the band sort of launch into 'Discotheque', like, in the middle of the crowd and it's just the start of the encores and, no ociffer, I'm pot nissed, it really, really did happen... As did many other things tonight, not all of them quite so jaw-droppingly amazing, but still pretty damn saucy. See, from the moment they dramatically appear stage-right and stride along an alleyway through the sodding audience to a final, carefree version of 'Rain' just over two hours later, U2 pretty much blow every conception of live performances and their alleged limitations out of the water. Light years ago, their cursed Red Rocks farrago (remember the white flags? The mullets? The manic bleat preaching?! Lawks!) catapulted the freaky foursome into the shameful realm of the rawk arena. Over a decade on, we have our own new generation of big stage bastardos, with Oasis, Blur, Radiohead and The Charlatans already booked into suddenly credible binocular-friendly venues before Crimbo. And rest assured that none of them will provide entertainment on a scale anywhere near as staggering as this. The plot is pretty simple: for the old crowd pleasers (see 'I Will Follow', '(Pride) In The Name Of Love', 'New Year's Day') the theme is stripped down and euphoric; for the later efforts (see the majority of the quite literally tune-unfriendly 'Pop' album) the spectacle is all and, more often than not, utterly spectacular. And here's the rub. U2 used to be more substance than style Now they're more style than substance and represent older men getting to grips with younger people's dance-dazzled sounds. Somewhere in the middle you'll find PopSport in all its awesome, gizmo-grinning glory. "George Harrison says you shouldn't be here!" yells Bono, a man who obviously snorts the tabloids. "It's all big fucking hats and lemons!" It is, too, courtesy of The Edge's camp cowboy attire and one large bright yellow bugger stage-left, but when U2's retort is the gentlest of touches of 'My Sweet Lord' at the close of 'Mysterious Ways' you realise just how much they're enjoying this whole supposedly hard-nosed corporate touring fandango. The highlights, then: Bono doing his traditional dance-with-a-girlie- from-the-audience act during a bionic 'Miami', and offering her a cigar; the cloud-bursting lasers for 'Bullet The Blue Sky'; the way in which Bono subverts all the Big Rock bollocks by dragging the crowd down into a 'Radio Ga Ga'-style mass clapalong; a stack of screamingly familiar songs which we haven't got time to detail because our minds are too busy being boggled by the cheeky, funky things in U2's life. And oh yeah, one other small-but-rather significant bit: somewhere in the middle of the set Bono and The Edge are at the far end of the catwalk with their acoustic guitars, duetting on 'Staring At The Sun'. Bono has already beamingly ordered the crowd not to laugh at his fretboard, uh, dexterity. In a few minutes The Edge will be striding solo on that same catwalk, bellowing 'Singing In The Rain'. Throughout the entire experience fans will be waving flowers. Dads will be shouting along. Geezers will be hugging each other. Mothers will be clapping. Small girls will be quivering. And small boys? Hey, we all know about small boys and their jiving, jumpers for goalposts, right? Yes. U2, then. Loaded, daft, dizzy, and, quite literally, Pop sports for all..."

Good audience.

Comments:
There is a persistent high-pitched hiss or squeak, but it doesn't detract too much from the sound. Generally speaking, it's a worthwhile investment. BUT, Disc 1 has a length of 74:55 and that doesn't agree (or at least their style of recording that length) with some CD players. Disc 1 skips a lot, meaning I've only listened to half of it. Disc 2 is well behaved and has no problems what so ever. The entire show is present, except they cut a bit of crowd noise out before the encore, which is slightly annoying. Disc 2, Track 8 was dedicated to Princess Diana, who had died earlier that summer. Disc 1, Track 12 is a karaoke version. The sleeve has pictures lifted form the 'Achtung Baby' and 'Zooropa' sleeves, and the front cover is of one of the promotional pictures for 'Pop.' Nowhere on the sleeve is there mention of where the main recording is from, though I am certain, without a doubt, that it is Paris. All told, this quirky bootleg is a bit of a risk to buy.

Comments:
Not the best performance I've heard by the band but it is still a great bootleg (although not indexed very well). It is interesting to hear the band do "Macarena" and get a harsh response (there's a first time for everything). A couple of short cracks are heard in the recording but are not worth worrying about. A slight echo can be heard in the vocals at times (due to the stadium configuration) but is not a great concern and even adds to the sound at times. This is a highly recommended recording; definitely worth the investment. Many have labeled this as the best audience PopMart bootleg available and I agree. I have heard POPDREAM BELIEVER and it doesn't compare to this. This bootleg brings back memories of the legendary ZOO TV audience bootleg from Stockholm in 1992 with ABBA (DANCING ZOO TV, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE, SATELLITE FROM STOCKHOLM, etc.). It has the same sharpness and detail of the instruments and vocals, but however the range isn't as rich. Disc 2, Track 12 is the infamous Automatic Baby version, with Michael Stipe on lead vocals.

Comments:
Color cover. Not the best performance I've heard of the band, but it is still good. It is kind of funny when they play "Macarena;" they get booed. Oh well, I enjoy it. The packaging is superb; probably one the best packaging of any of the bootlegs I own. The cover has 14 small pictures of the show and a picture of the ticket. The inside has a couple of great shots of the show. All in excellent quality color . The inside back has a great shot of Bono. The first disc is red. The second disc is yellow. It's not one of the best PopMart shows, but it is good all the same. Very easy to listen to and you are not distracted by the audience. Great bootleg , it would be crazy to pass it up.

Bono was very excited and actually spoke in Italian during the show. He repeated two times in Italian to the audience, "Questa è la serata più grande serata della mia vita!" (which in English, that means "This is the greatest night of all my life." Additional comments and info needed on this bootleg.

Comments:
One of the better shows from the PopMart Tour. Bono's voice cracks up a bit, but the band makes up for it. This is one of the nicest bootleg I've seen; it's almost perfect! The concert is very emotional. You definitely feel that playing Sarajevo was very important to the band. Highlights include "Gone," "Sunday Bloody Sunday," "Where The Streets Have No Name," "Miss Sarejevo," and "One." This is the best version of "One" I've ever heard; Edge's guitar is blistering and Bono's speech in the end ("To be united is a great thing, but to respect differences perhaps an even greater thing. So for the city of the future, Sarajevo! City of the Future! Sarajevo! City of the Future!") always gives me goose bumps! Bono's voice breaks after about 6 songs, but it holds up through the show except for "With Or Without You," when he really struggles. The whole band plays incredibly well, and Bono makes up for his lack of voice with emotion and intensity. You really feel for him, because you can tell how frustrating it is for him not to be able to give Sarajevo his best. The crowd helps him out though; singing along with (and for) Bono when he can't throughout the entire show. In fact, determination and the crowd's generosity end up creating an atmosphere probably more intense than it otherwise would have been. This is a beautiful concert and will definitely stand as one of the most memorable in U2's career. This CD has front and back inserts. The liner notes feature a Reuters report of the event, with a brief history on Bono's promise to go perform there and complete '97 PopMart tour dates. The booklets features lots of Pop-era pictures. Clever use of colors and design makes this 16-page booklet well worth looking. Both CD's have cool graphics on them. The packaging is extremely well done, it might as well have been an official release. Considerable time has been spent on layout, graphics, text and photos. It really is beautiful. At Sarajevo, Bono may have lost his voice mid-way through, but U2 have found theirs. Relying on a bedrock of older concert pleasers, The Edge's guitar shines through and Larry Mullen drums even sound heavier. As Bono predicted after the lame start of the Pop Mart tour, U2 need a warm up period to get their act together and this evening's song selection bears that out. They've strategically placed all their new 'Pop' sounds in-between old songs. Opening the show with a recording of "Pop Muzik" segueing into their live rendition of "Mofo" then hotfooting to the safety of "I Will Follow" gives the new songs a foundation. "Staring At The Sun," the best tune on 'Pop,' is played acoustically to emphasize melody and is then followed immediately by an acoustic version of "Sunday Bloody Sunday," with The Edge singing and playing it solo. The crowd enthusiastically joins in. The other high point of is when Bono sings snippets of Talking Heads' "Life During Wartime" (with a terribly relevant lyric "This ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no foolin' around") inside U2's "Discotheque" makes an immediate connection with the crowd. And when the show slacks with a tediously slow "If You Wear That Velvet Dress" from the new album, U2 know how to salvage proceedings when The Edge's guitar lines lead into "With Or Without You." They also come away from Sarajevo with their rep intact but probably less wealthy than before. U2 spent $1 million to set up their mega show far he Bosnians and charged low ticket prices to attract the 50,000 crowd. Bono has been using U2 concerts as far back as the Mac Phisto (Zooropa) shows to attack the West for failing to stop the Bosnian war. When he tells the crowd he wrote "Miss Sarajevo" for them, they scream gratefulness. PopMart has been about caricaturing the commercialism that's prevalent in pop by being a megahype itself and finally U2 have managed to stand inside that market and yet to be untainted. At least their rock 'n' roll attitude is intact, if their new music is less exciting. When they close the show with "One." U2 are at their bravest ("Have you come here for forgiveness?... Have you come here to play Jesus?") making clear their uncertainty, but also connecting with their Christian roots. It's a reminder that their music has always stood for something. Whoever chose the title for this bootleg has shown that bootleggers can get straight to the heart of the matter. Throughout their recent shows, U2 have been fighting to stay relevant and DISCONNECT is anything but about their failure to communicate. The way DISCONNECT has been recorded, with the crowd noise always engaging in the mix, makes this a happening event despite Bono's voice breaking at times. Probably the most relevant U2 gig in recent times and the one to get for a taste of PopMart '97. A nice bootleg.

Comments:
Another copy of the Sarajevo show. Despite Bono's voice during the show it is an amazing set-very good versions of the Popmart album. The renditions of earlier songs are also incredible-Mysterious Ways and One both being enhanced from the Zoo TV tour. This particular copy is for the most part excellent, however there are slight skips in the songs during "Until The End Of The World" and "Bullet The Blue Sky". The sound quality is excellent-almost as good as Zoo Europa. It is a great show to have to see the other members of the band pull Bono through-Edge especially with his amazing guitar playing and very strong vocals. It does a great job capturing the feeling of the show and the night. The packaging is very nice but looks homemade. The jewel box had fallen apart when it was delivered. Due to various complaints that reviews from Danyel Ramelo (AKA POPclerk) were not impartial (since he manufactured them himself), all of the comments that he submitted for his CD-R bootlegs have been removed. If you own this CD-R set (like it or not), please send in a review. Additional comments and info needed on this bootleg.

Comments:
Very good, expressive show and recording. Broadcast on the radio and copied onto CD. Of course, it's a pity that Bono's voice is pretty bad, but the band play very good to compensate. The best track is the acoustic version "Sunday Bloody Sunday" sung by The Edge. "Miss Sarajevo" (with Brian Eno) is also quite good too. The bonus tracks are all The Edge singing karaoke songs, and are pretty bad in sound quality (compared to the rest of the tracks on this bootleg. There is a slight "volume-adjustment" problem in beginning, but it's solved after the first 2 or 3 tracks. This is definitely one of the best shows of the PopMart Tour! It is very obvious that Bono feels very passionately for the Sarajevo crowd. He apologizes for his hoarse voice numerous times throughout the show. The bonus tracks are OK; a good run-down of what songs the band used for their "Karaoke gimmick" throughout the tour. They are not the best quality, though.

Comments:
This is the monumental Sarejevo concert where Bono's voice isn't up to par, but still sounds great. The front cover is a great picture of The Edge playing away with a spotlight glaring and a "leg" of the arch in the background. The back cover features the tracklisting, a PopMart logo, a picture of Bono in his "Miami garb" next to a spotlight, and two blurbs: "Bono keeps U2's promise to Sarejevo and returns when it's safe!" and "Our apologies for the split second loss of signal on tracks 1, 5 & 6. This demonstrates a common problem for radio type recordings." Although this statement is false, there is a mistake on Track 10 and a few others. Also, "Until The End Of The World" (Disc 1, Track 6) is labeled as "Do You Feel Loved?" and the "Lemon (Perfecto Mix) Intermission" (Disc 2, Track 3) is labeled as "Instrumental" and (FINALLY), "Miss Sarejevo" (Disc 2, Track 6) is labeled as "Here She Comes (Song For Sarejevo)". Overall, I enjoy this set. The CD-Rs are black with white lettering and PopMart logos in the middle-right margin. They were recorded on green CD-Rs.

This is a good bootleg. "Until The End Of The World" and "New Year's Day" are especially good. Some tracks have minor flaws (buzzing, recording levels to hot, etc.) but in general, this set is great. Disc 2, Tracks 10-15 range in quality from fair audience to good soundboard recordings. Not the greatest-sounding bootleg from the infamous Sarajevo show, but it's not a bad buy if you come across it. Don't expect crystal clear sound. The bonus tracks are nice, but they sound like a guy put a tape recorder outside his car window when driving past the concert.

REVOLUTION IN SARAJEVO is a good bootleg for someone who is simply looking any PopMart Tour bootleg, but it simply doesn't offer the complete show. The Saravjevo show was the only PopMart date that the band performed "Miss Sarajevo."

Comments:
This bootleg is an very good broadcast recording with some low "hiss" during "Please." It is an excellent concert that begins with a solid version of "Mofo." It could have been one of U2's best concerts if Bono did not lose his voice half way through. His voice is strong until "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" but then it falls apart. If it were any other show the concert would have been cut short. Although Bono's voice is not great, it is still an excellent concert. The music is solid , while Bono tries to sing with a softer voice. The acoustic version of "Sunday Bloody Sunday" is sung by The Edge for the first time on the tour here. It is simply outstanding. During "Please," Bono compares the people of Bosnia to the those of Ireland "just a little." This will most likely be the last live performance of "Miss Sarajevo" (on which Brian Eno makes an appearance). "Mysterious Ways" begins with a chorus of Madonna's "Get Into The Groove." Overall, an awesome concert. Bono talks more than usual. Just remember, Bono's voice is rough, but still sounds better than most other vocalists.

Nice bootleg, with a cover and a couple of tour pictures inside (but none from Sarajevo). The cover represents a window of Sarajevo's newspaper stands. The back cover consists one photo of Kosovo Stadium, one photo of Bono (not from Sarajevo), and track listing. Has color CD label on each CD-R and uses artwork. This concert was broadcast worldwide. At the beginning of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," Bono tries to speak like the locals by stating "Svirati u Sarajevu je Vas poklon nama." This means "Playing in Sarajevo your gift to us." Miss Sarajevo is not printed on tracklisting. It features a guest appearance of Brian Eno. This is an Italian bootleg.

Comments:
This historical concert was broadcast live over the radio. U2 had been wanting to play Sarajevo ever since 1993 and it shows! An over-enthusiastic Bono loses his voice early on in the show, but the people in the crowd sing for him. He mentions Sarajevo and its people in about every song. "Sunday Bloody Sunday" was played acoustically by The Edge for the only time on the European leg of the tour and it sounds beautiful. This live version can also be found on the "If God Will Send His Angels" 4-track CD single. The performance of "Miss Sarajevo" is very unique. It's the first time they played it as a band. Brian Eno came onstage to sing along, while Pavarotti's voice was played from a recording. Although this concert comes from a radio broadcast, the quality isn't what it could (or should) have been. Maybe the reception wasn't perfect or else the recording volume was set too high, because the loud sounds are distorted. During the concert, an announcer of "Forces Radio BFBS" comes on four times. Luckily, only in between songs, but it's still a bit annoying. The indexing of the tracks could have also been better. It's a shame the transition between "Please" and "Where The Streets Have No Name" was cut up between discs. They should have put "Please" on Disc 2. There are no bonus tracks which makes Disc 2 a bit too short. Apart from the front cover, all the pictures look a bit grainy. There must surely be better recordings of this unique concert, but I got it pretty cheap (about $27 US), so I'm not complaining too much. This concert included great versions of "Gone" and "Please." "One," "Discotheque," and "If You Wear That Velvet Dress" were are also really good. Bono definitely gives this crowd everything he's got.

Sound Quality:
Good radio broadcast.

Comments:
A subpar copy of the Sarajevo broadcast. The "Pop Muzik Intro" is barely present, so Disc 1 essentially begins with "Mofo." The sound represents no improvement over a standard radio broadcast; some static and distortion is present throughout. The biggest drawback to this bootleg, however, is the conspicuous absence of "Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me," which was obviously performed at this concert. Not recommended at all.

Comments:
When I bid for this show on Ebay, I thought it would be a clear recording. I was the only one to win the auction of a quantity of 10. When I recieved it, i got original covers and two CD-R's in a normal sized case. The two CD-R's have pink stickers of a pig with sunglasses on them and are clearly unidenified (which made me wonder if they could be two of the same discs). This show is obviously a radio recording that went bad since the Popmusik intro is gone and the volume is turned up to a point where its overmodulated and you can hear the radio static. This disc also includes a radio interview that Bono had on the phone of a radio station of the situation in Kosevo and why it was so difficult to play there during the ZOO TV tour. The show is great altogether but I hope to trade for a better copy of the show.

Comments:
Great show. The sound is not as clear as I would prefer on the high end, the bass is great though, ist a nice boot. This was the night after the last of the Toronto shows, and Howie B. was detained at customs so he was unable to mix before the show, at one point Bono says, "Viva Minneapolis, Viva St. Paul, Viva Howie B., Viva St. Patrick, Viva Bono!" at the start of „Even Better Than The Real Thing“. Before „I Still Havent Found What I'm Looking For“, Bono talks about how they remember a club called "Uncle Sams" (now First Ave.) and how they wrote two songs off the second album here: "I Threw a Brick though a Window" and "Stranger in a Strange Land". He goes on to say, "from the second record... this is like a long time ago!" Bono also says, "Things have gotten pretty strange since then actually, I think the rest of the band has really gotten very strange, but I think I have really held on to... ya know... (laughter) I'm really the same man" During „Until the End of the World“, you can hear a girl yelling, "wooooo!" during a couple parts of Edges solo, you can also hear her and some others during other parts, mainly the slower songs. The part I think is the craziest is at the end of „Wake Up Dead Man“, Bono says, "Thank you, good night, fuck off!" I guess the reason for this was something having to do with the roadies or truck drivers and some union stuff. Now, thats just what I have heard. All the songs are the same as most of the other shows from this part of the tour, so its not as if you NEED to have this, but just the little things make it a interesting boot.

I was at this show and it was an amazing performance by the band. This recording has quite a bit of audience noise and people singing along with the band, but it's still a great show. Discotheque is a real highlight of the show, includes a verse of The Fly at the end, very well done. Sound is good.. not the best audience popmart recording I've heard, but it's certainly far from the worst! Definately worth getting if you went to the show.

Comments:
I think that the "Lemon (Perfecto Mix) Intermission" is missing from this bootleg. Another bootleg of the Mexico City show. The front cover is a picture from the "Staring At the Sun" picture shoot with the guys standing around. The back cover is a black and white picture of Bono from 1987 with his red guitar and leaning down holding up microphone (a common picture I've seen many times). This is a must have! The sound is beyond excellent. The only quip is the show's fault. Bono's microphone goes out for like a second and a half during "With or Without You." The back incorrectly lists "Staring At The Sun" as "(Edge Solo)". The overall performance is great, with soaring versions of "Mofo," "Last Night On Earth," "I still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" (which features a fantastic intro speech by Bono "Thanks for sticking with us. I know it gets a bit tricky, but we're restless! Aren't we The Edge!? If it keeps us interested, we promise it won't be bullshit for you."). There are also great versions of "All I Want is You (which features snippets of "Never Tear Us Apart"), "Bullet The Blue Sky," "Discotheque," "Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me," and One (which was dedicated to Michael Hutchence. Edge's solos throughout all the songs are extended and the band is in top kick ass form. Perfect sound, perfect sound quality. Oh well. Buy it. Additional comments and info needed on this bootleg.

Comments:
This is the best recording that I have heard from the last tour; much better sound than the Sarajevo broadcast (soundboard) recording. Also the band is in great form, better than at some of the shows I saw personally. Everyone is very energetic and Bono's voice is strong and clear throughout the show. Of the broadcasts from the PopMart tour, this is by far the most preferable. The Sarajevo show was marred by Bono's throat problems. The Mexico City show has been bootlegged under many different titles, no doubt due to the broadcast's extensive worldwide coverage. The Thunderball release offers very attractive artwork and excellent mastering making it the one to seek out. It comes with a 12-panel insert and tray liner card. The graphics are unusual in that the track listing appears on the front and not the back. (For all you "bootleg buffs" out there: the Thunderball (as a James Bond fan might deduce) label is the new name for what used to be the Moonraker label.) A great bootleg. One of the best U2 PopMart shows in existence. The band is really on top form. Bono talks to the crowd a lot (especially at the beginning of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For"). This show has one of the best acoustic versions of "Staring At The Sun" that I've ever heard. It's as good as (if not better than) the official live version on the 'Popheart' live EP. Edge sings "Sunday Bloody Sunday." Bono dedicates "One" to Michael Hutchence. The show closes with an excellent rendition of "Wake Up Dead Man." Overall, this 2 CD set is a must-have for any collector. The packaging is superb (very professional-looking) with pictures of the band during the PopMart tour. There is a mini bio of the band in the insert but some of it is cut off, making it a bit hard to read. Also included in the insert is a speculative write-up on how U2 got its name. This show was also broadcast live via satellite Showtime in December of 1997. I predict this show will also be heavily bootlegged like the Sarajevo show.

Maybe a standard PopMart show, but those Mexicans sure know how to cheer! It's truly amazing how much cheering was recorded without taking away anything from the sound quality.

The version of "Mofo" from MTV Europe Music awards is introduced as a boxing match by Dennis Hopper ("Get ready to ruuuuumble!!!!!) and truly, get ready to rumble with this bootleg!

Comments:
Great recording of a very good show. This is a must have for the PopMart fans. Sound quality is excellent. Bono's microphone fails a couple of times during "With Or Without You," but this is only a minor detail. In my opinion, this recording is much better that the Sarajevo concert since Bono does not lose his voice here. This show contains great renditions of almost all the songs. My personal highlights include "All I Want Is You" (including Never Tear Us Apart)," "One," "Wake Up Dead Man" (dedicated to Michael Hutchence; very emotional), "Staring At The Sun," "Until The End Of The World And Last Night On Earth," "New Year's Day" (echo on the piano intro), "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me" and "Mysterious Ways." All the other songs are great too. Like I said, this is a great recording of a very good show, a must have. One of the better PopMart shows I've bought. The sound quality is great, especially when U2 are play, but when there's a pause in their program, the audience is really loud. Sometimes it takes moments before they calm down. Anyhow, this CD is good, so if you get the chance, buy it! If you are looking for a great sounding recording of the PopMart Tour, or not to mention any U2 concert, you will love this 2CD set. It was recorded from the Showtime broadcast so the sound quality is near perfect. Besides the quality of the recording, the music is also at its best, and the crowd is really into the concert. I highly recommend this 2cd set. CDs come in a slimline double jewel case. The front picture of Bono wearing a Mexican hat. Disc 1 is black with silver U2 MEXIMOFO on it.

Comments:
Digipack. This 2 CD set has excellent sound, and is of an excellent performance. But ... every single track has a 2 second gap between the next. This is extremely annoying. For this reason, don't buy it. It ruins an otherwise perfect performance and bootleg. Get Meximofo, or another very good Mexico boot, there are enough of them !

Comments:
DO NOT BUY THIS SHOW FROM THIS LABEL! There are some outstanding pressings out of this cd, but they weren't made by KTS. KTS has put out some very fine material in the past. A couple of years ago, I would have highly recomended Outside Broadcast among other KTS produced CDs. This was a great CD (maybe one of the best off of the Zoo TV tour for sound quality), but since that CD was pressed, I have heard that KTS has changed hands. IT SHOWS! The sound in this concert is way off. The base is way too high, and everything is completely flat and artificial. You might be able to do something with this if you had an equalizer, but that's about it. I know that other labels have done this CD and have done it well. Buy this terrific concert from one of those labels. For a very simular review on another recent pressing by KTS that was again from a *BROADCAST* show that didn't turn out well at all, see Kevin Vigil's review on the January 31st, 1998 Sao Paulo, Brazil show.

Comments:
The package lists that Disc 1 has 16 songs, it has 15. The "Pop Muzik Intro" is omitted. "Bullet The Blue Sky" and "Please" have some sort of tape "skipping" sound on them for about 30 seconds each. It was the original tape, not the CD. "With Or Without You" breaks up a bit, but that was due to Bono's microphone. All the songs are off by a little bit. Whoever put this together didn't know where to separate the songs. The sound quality is BY FAR the best I have heard on any U2 boot. If you listen to the whole thing all the way through, this is great. Skipping to songs is a bad idea though. This is NOT the best Mexico bootleg to get.

Sound Quality:
Very good television broadcast.

Comments:
This was the show that was broadcast on Showtime in the US. This bootleg appears to be very low-budget. The cover and back are cheap paper, and the pictures must be off a computer printed with a laser or inkjet printer. The discs are also CD-Rs, a further indication that this set is most likely a low-print run and cheap production. However, this bootleg is recorded right from the broadcast and there are very few soundboard or broadcast PopMart shows on the market right now (mostly just Mexico and Sarajevo broadcasts have been bootlegged many times). This show is complete, and it is a damn good one! There is some static on a number of the tracks (which can be a bit annoying), but this was most likely due to the transmission and the reception of the broadcast. For the most part, the sound is clean, the bass is good and heavy, and Bono is really "into" the show. The static may bother some people, but given the proliferation of audience shows (albeit there are some great ones) this is still a broadcast show and its an energetic performance; the crowd is very much "into" it as well. I would recommend this bootleg if you can find someone to make you a CD-R copy, but that's about it.

Comments:
Overall, a good bootleg. The sound is really good with the exception of the bass being almost non-existent and a few echoes because of the venue. Bono is in top form. His voice doesn't miss a beat. A very emotional and high-powered set as it was the last US show. You can hear the people around the recorder, but they're really not that annoying. A great show if you were there. The only disappointment is "Mysterious Ways" because of the bass problem. Other than that, the show is amazing ... Bono misses a verse in "Until the End Of The World" and the band has a few close in totally screwing up a few songs. But being the great musicians that they are, they pull threw it and give an amazing show ! The bonus tracks on this CD are both live. "Love Is Blindness" sounds exactly the same as the one from the "Stay (Faraway, So Close!)" live format single. I have no clue as to where „MLK“ is from.Due to various complaints that reviews from Danyel Ramelo (AKA POPclerk) were not impartial (since he manufactured them himself), all of the comments that he submitted for his CD-R bootlegs have been removed. If you own this CD-R set (like it or not), please send in a review. Additional comments and info needed on this bootleg.

Comments:
I'd rank the sound quality to be equal to the San Diego show. There is very little bass and a lot of audience noise. On Disc 2, most of the "Lemon (Perfecto Mix) Intermission" was edited out. The track listing on the sleeve does not exactly match the description on KTS's web site. Apparently this bootleg contains a lot of "hiss." A better bet might be SAO PAULO or SAO PAULO, both from unknown manufacturers. Additional comments and info needed on this bootleg.

Very good to excellent television broadcast.

Comments:
After playing Sao Paulo, the Edge told a reporter that this was the best show U2 played in South America, and I have to agree that this is a great performance. All the songs are performed well, but a few stand out, such as: "Mofo," "Gone, and "Sunday Bloody Sunday." "Where The Streets Have No Name" is super; my favorite piece is a new and very cool bass line Adam plays during the chorus. "With Or Without You" is amazing, and "Mysterious Ways" has a new, keyboard heavy opening which takes the funk/pop theme even further. My absolute favorite is "40". It's su
