No source is 5 stars. White Flags on Stage sounds better than the FM broadcast, but is far from perfect. In songs like NYD or Electric Co. the tape shows the wear of time. This source comes with 2 extra tracks (I Fall Down, Party Girl) from San Francisco (inferior quality), which is nice. Recording: "White Flags On Stage" - 4 stars
This part is only rated, not commented on
It was a very good show but it's not captured entirely on the bootlegs. The public sounds distant. Still, there were great performances, like Twilight and Surrender, with a lot of snippets at the end. Also, Electric Co. appears here with the snippets removed from UABRS. First time they snippeted America (Popmart deja-vu!) here. If you want a superior sound, buy UABRS! 5 out of the 8 songs are from this concert.

"'Pride' is the best song we've ever written. We've done very few songs, normally we just make music. 'I Will Follow' was a song, but then the next one wasn't until 'Sunday Bloody Sunday'. It's very different from the rest of the album though - there's nothing on there as straight as this."
- Bono, November 1984

The title for the song 'Shadows and Tall Trees' is taken from William Goldings "Lord Of The Flies", whose 5th chapter bears the same name. The song, and the album, is about boyhood, innocence and struggle, as is Golding's book.
