"I was only once at the Brixton Academy to see a show and was surprised how could U2 play such a small venue for their status
in 1984/1985. This is the second night in the same venue but clearly not enough for public demand, so at the end of the tour
they played once more in the Wembley arena. But this is nice one, quite 'intimate' gig and especially with a terrific sound.
I traded this tape in the early 90's directly from the taper, so this one is sourced from a 1st generation. The band really
rocks! I preferred the 1984 part of the Unforgettable Fire tour, although my first time with the band was in Milano the
year after. I would rate this recording a solid 9+, you won't be disappointed. Wanna some U2? Here we go!!!! [LDB]"

"Bono... doesn't slave for weeks on the nuances of a lyric or a melody. He comes in and kind of leaps, and that can be an incredibly inspiring thing to see."

Although instrumental, the song '4th Of July' was recorded on the 4th of July, it is about how they felt that day. The Edge was playing the guitar, completely unaware that Brian Eno (one of the producers) was recording it.
