The band are very lively. They play their material quite well. Bono talks to the audience at a few points, his voice sounds kind of rough. Larry is very clear on this bootleg, and Edge and Adam don't disappoint.
Loud and clear, with some crackles, static, flat spots, etc. Not perfect, but easily listenable. For an October Tour bootleg, it's one of the better sounding ones available.
I'd be interested to see if the new 2014 master tape transfer is better-sounding. Recording: "Riverboat President" - 4.5 stars
They don't seem to be especially engaged. There's a lot of talking in the background. At some points they seem more excited than others, but the amount of conversation and lack of clapping along or singing along is a disappointment.
A good October concert. Despite an unimpressive audience, this is a nice boot to have because the band play well and the sound is good. Overall, one of the better shows available from this tour.
- Another Time, Another Place
- I Threw a Brick Through a Window/A Day Without Me
- Rejoice (altered lyric)
- I Fall Down (slightly altered lyric)
- The Ocean (really good with a cool, quite-extended outro, with a little musical snippet of 11 O'Clock Tick Tock in it)

NOTES: As promised, this is the 2nd U2 master tape from the collection.
My previous notes from the first post: This restoration project has been in the works for several months. The tape was rescued from a dusty box of old masters sourced from a long-time taper from the New Orleans area who has been inactive for many years and is one of 2 U2 masters found in the collection. Included in the torrent is a photo of the actual master tape itself.
Although this show been pressed to silver many times over the years this is the master version direct from the original analog tapes. I'm not sure what gen/version the bootleg CDs are from.
I am posting this for a former taper who found and hunted down this tape. He is asking for uncirculated REM 87/89, New Order 93, and select Rush shows. If you have anything to offer please get in touch.
Notes from him (the inactive taper who tracked down and borrowed this tape):
I have been a trader / taper / collector for 25 years and have access to masters from my collection as well as others. Many masters have never been circulated or now only exist as high gen. Over the next few months I am planning on posting these gems but I need some motivation. In the past I have had other people post some shows for me with the polite request to post some shows in return. I have been disappointed and frankly disenchanted in the response to some of my offerings. Here we have U2 in probably one of the most legendary early shows directly from the analog master transferred in 2014. Please show the love, post freely or PM me is you have any shows from these bands and years. If I get a good reply some big surprises will go up.
In search of:
Rush (select shows from '84 - '94)
New Order ('89 - '93)
10,000 Maniacs ('88 - '93)
REM ('87 - '89

"Numb is the sound of the inside of somebody's head, with a great lyric and performance by Edge. It is a relentless portrait of what he was feeling at the time and what a lot of people were feeling in the wider world about media. He was in that spot but it became a great metaphor for the media overload generation incapable of feeling anything for the pictures you see."

The Rattle and Hum album opens with a live cover of The Beatles' "Helter Skelter". Its inclusion on the album was intended by the band to reflect the confusion of The Joshua Tree Tour and their new-found superstar status.
