New source has definitely clearer sound than the old source. Recording: "All Along The Watchtower" - 2.5 stars
This part is only rated, not commented on
This show marks a tipping point for the band: it's a sellout with 1000 people in and 700 people outside. Unfortunately, the bootleg captures the show poorly. The most important thing is that Pete Wylie from the band Wah Heat! (terrible name) joins them and sings All Along The Watchtower. Sounds interesting in theory, but the performance is quite dreadful.

NOTE: This recording features pretty good clarity, however the sound -- more so Bono's vocals than the music -- is a bit distant. Audience noise is minimal. There are a few obvious edits between songs during the encores. In addition, there is a skip at 2:25 of "Al Along the Watchtower" after which a few seconds of the song repeat. Pete Wylie of Wah Heat! joins U2 on stage and croons most of the Dylan cover.

"I love being there, I love America, I love the feeling of the wide open spaces, I love the deserts, I love the mountain ranges, I even love the cities. So having fallen in love with America over the years that we've been there on tour, I then had to 'deal with' America and the way it was affecting me, because America's having such an effect on the world at the moment. On this record I had to deal with it on a political level for the first time, if in a subtle way."
- Bono, on the Joshua Tree's thematic inspirations
