For a 3rd generation cassette from 1980, it's actually very listenable. Not good, of course, but I've heard much worse. Recording: Audience microphone - 2 stars
Hard to judge from the bootleg.
Last pre-Boy bootleg and a short one too. There's actually some good stuff here. 11 O'Clock Tick Tock from this era sounds fantastic. Lots of improvement from those Silver Lining performances.
Last performance of Shadows and Tall Trees (should've been played in the tour!) and last performance of Another Day (nothing that will be missed).
Bono speaks something during A Day Without Me, and I think he sounded a bit offensive trying to speak Japanese (different times). Unfortunately, Twilight is cut.

Can we ask you to write a short review after you have listened?.
"For a long time I believed the rock and roll mythology of acquiring experience without responsibility. I chose to deal with being in the band in a ver single minded way and I developed a lifestyle that I thought added up to what I was. I don't want to go back there again, I'm comfortable with this."
- Adam Clayton, looking back on the eighties/start nineties
