This is from a 1st gen or master DAT, remastered by Francesco Donadel.
This was U2's second night in Rotterdam/Europe of the PopMart tour. It was a very good show, they seemed more loose than the second show, and put on a more interesting performance (IMO) than night one. Bono did "Love Will Tear Us Apart" at the end of WOWY. Nothing else about this show should surprise you other than the energy and vocal ability of Bono, which varied throughout the tour.
The sound quality of both nights was identical. Rather flat, but extremely clear, with individual audience members 97% inaudible. Probably the lowest/unobstructed audience noise recording you'll hear, but the mix is not that great, seems to be missing a lot of the high end, and the remastering helped a little, but it seems that he couldn't really bring out the high end because it just isn't there. Despite the audience noise, I prefer something like "One Stop Shopping" or the tracks you'll hear from the pro soundboard recording of the Rotterdam show. There is a little light static that is on Justin Cook's original copy.

"I wrote the lyric based on the book of Ecclesiastes in the Old Testament. It’s a story of intellectual wanderlust. The preacher wants to find out the meaning of life and so he tries a bit of everything. He tries knowledge, educates himself, reads every book, but that doesn’t do it. He tries travel, sees every sight, but that doesn’t do it. He tries win, woman and song, that doesn’t do it. All he says, is vanity, vanity of vanities, striving after wind."
- Bono on The Wanderer

During the Achtung Baby recordings Bono often howled his frustration on mistakes, after a while the band imposed a new band rule: the hyped-up Bono is permanently forbidden to drink coffee.
