It's an FM broadcast and after almost 35 years, it's still flawless. Edge's guitar is a bit distant in the mix, but this is one of the best sounding Boy bootlegs. Recording: "BBC Northern Ireland - Original broadcast 1981" - 4.5 stars
Terrific audience, louding and clapping very loudly between songs. Something rare for an early broadcast to not bury the audience.
Simply spectacular. One of the best Boy bootlegs and a must-have for any fan. One source misses Things To Make And Do and Twilight. These are in the new source, but the latter misses A Day Without Me, so they complement very well. Short set, but no lowlights. An Cat Dubh/Into the Heart, 11 O'clock and Out of Control sound incredibly good. These early versions of A Day Without Me are not as strong as the latter October versions with Brick, but that's not a fault of this bootleg. The bootleg also contains The Ocean and 11 O'clock from the Old Gray Whistle Test show of January 28, 1981. Highly recommended.

"BBC Four Rebroadcast 2019 (4 tracks only - Belfast 1981 Live EP)"
Origins: DVB-C Television Broadcast

02-11 O'Clock Tick Tock
03-Cry-The Electric Co.
04-Out Of Control
Originally broadcasted by the BBC on August 12, 1981 &
re-broadcasted on BBC Four on March 16, 2019.
The four U2 songs were alternated with the set of Stiff
Little Fingers, so I had to make some edits. An while
at it, I also reduced a few odd peaks here and there so
volume could be adjusted without any clipping.
The good news is that BBC 4 seemed to have aired this
rebroadcast without significant loudness boost (if any).

Here's another one while I have out this big BOY Tour CD wallet. I've seen another bootleg of this show called "Boy Belfast" but it only had 10 tracks, where this has 11 (it includes the introduction of the band by the BBC announcer stating various accolades). Very nice early FM broadcast.
