New transfer of U2's Austin stop on the War tour, this show and source has
circulated for some time from a 1st Gen > CDR (?) and an unknown low gen tape
transfer. This comes from my 1st generation copy and takes out all the CDR lineage,
I believe you will find this to be a big material upgrade for a couple of reasons.
The raw capture of this show is very low end heavy, typical for an outdoor capture.
After taming and tightening up the bass so it sounds like an actual instrument and
a few other frequency tweaks in combination with correcting the pitch I'm extremely
happy with the final results.
Don't confuse this as a different source due to the lack of audience noise matching
the circulating versions as I've given this one the deluxe treatment and extracted
95% of the close to the taper offending noises. All the annoying outside noises like
the high pitched whistle in the middle of "October", the extremely annoying whistle
at the start of "Gloria" and at the start of "Party Girl" as well as plenty of
audience chatter and yelling have been seamlessly extracted.
The boys really seems to take to playing in Austin, they are definitely firing on
all cylinders here adding the "Party Girl" bonus song. We also get a mid-song
interruption as Bono stops "Sunday Bloody Sunday" due to the audience fighting over
a white flag, assumably thrown from the stage.
I believe with the combination of quality and performance you will find this show
ranks as one of the very best War tour performances.

I received this on 2 cd-r's, but i believe it will fit on a single 80m cd-r.
VG/Ex. Audience recording. Sorry no info re: mics/taper. There is a bit
of tape hiss, but it's really not distracting at all.

"Singing ‘hold me close, hold me close and don’t let me go, like I’m someone that you might know’ is a vulnerable thing to say to an audience."
- Bono before singing Iris (Hold Me Close) live, 2015
did you know
A local violinist, Steve Wickham, approached The Edge one morning at a bus stop and asked if U2 had any need for a violin on their next album (the War album). In the studio for only half a day, Wickham's electric violin became the final instrumental contribution to Sunday Bloody Sunday.
