This an excellent soundboard recording from the Unforgettable fire tour.
The problem is that the tv station didn't broadcast the entire
show.11 O'Clock Tick Tock,A Sort Of Homecoming
and The Unforgettable Fire weren't broadcasted.
The source was very clean and punchy so i only had to improve the
stereo image,the eq,the dynamics ad maximize it with the L3.
Hope you like it!
01-I Will Follow
02-Sunday Bloody Sunday
03-Cry-The Electric Co.
07-New Year's Day
08-Pride (In The Name Of Love)
Although this isn't the complete show (11 O'Clock Tick Tock,
A Sort Of Homecoming, and The Unforgettable Fire are missing)
this is still one of the best Unforgettable Fire shows you are
going to find. This is a definite must-have show.

So here it is!! The "complete" desaster-tape!! But, all you folks out there wanted to listen to it again!
And cry! and cry! and cry! and cry!
U2 Dortmund, Westfalenhalle 1 November 21st, 1984 (Buss- und Bettag in Germany!!)
Master - Audience recording from my old Maxell XL II C-90 Tapes
ZDF RockPop in concert (German TV)
The unforgettable fire - tour
Artwork is included !! See below!!
Other artists that evening were:
This concert I taped with an AIWA walkman and an extra microphone
(I can't remember what microphone it was).
It was recorded from the middle of the audience about 5 meters from the stage or 10 meters from the stage
and again 5 meters from the stage. It depends. (See below why)
The sound quality is very good +, sometimes better.
This is a real fine audience master because it is from an audience master as an audience master should be:
a lot of talk of the people around. Sometimes shouting:"U2! U2!" or "I will follow" or another shit.
And there have been many people around me and my microphone
during that gig because - hey, I was in the middle of a sometimes really enthusiastic crowd,
hopping around (me too) and going wild. I remember a poor ZDF-camera-man (und sein Kabeltraeger) just beside me
filming it and sweating like a .... (don't know an english word for it, sorry). And me taping
and we took a look at each other and we suddenly knew that we both had a shit-job to do that evening.
This was the best U2 experience I went through in my concert-career.
The worst and last will follow later (Cologne 1987 - as told before).
.and now the desaster: I really don't know what happened. The first side of my master-cassette
is really fine. But after the tape-flip (after BAD) the cassette ..aaaaaaaargh!! (in german: die eiert wie Sau!!!)
I have seeded the desaster-part here too and you will recognize that there is no hope / chance for repairing it.
I don't know why the rest of it then again really works fine. Sorry!
It is what it is!!
Anyway hope you like it!!

"A few days after the album [Songs of Innocence] was finished, I thought Iris shouldn't be part of the album. Even though the song is a beautiful tune and everything, I just thought it was going a bit far and it's not very punk rock, singing about your mother."
did you know
British Prime Minister Tony Blair has said in a UK radio interview in 2006 that U2's 1987 hit Where The Streets Have No Name is his favourite song of all time.
