U2 - 1981-10-30 - Amsterdam, NL (AUD/FLAC)
Complete show has turned up @ http://www.guitars101.com/forums/f145/u2-1981-10-30-amsterdam-nl-aud-flac-142718.html
Interesting. Until now, only incomplete versions of this show existed, some consisting of 8 tracks and some of 11... I guess that a double check will state clearly if this complete audience belongs to that same show. Thanks for posting, and of course thanks to Asso for uploading. I will download and let the double-check game begin
I've listened to them while I was working (the wonders of working at home) and yes, they belogn to the same show, although the existing FM source runs significantly quicker -and therefore in a hihger pitch- than this audience recording. Speed/pitch problems are quite common amnog the recordings of this age, so no problem there
Thanks to the original taper (A.V.?) and to Nuno, who re-encoded it in full. . . It's always nice when super old recordings po-up isn't it
I would gladly remaster this audience source, it sounds "almost" good but it has potential to sound "almost very" good I think.
I adjusted the pitch (pumped it 0'55 semitones higher, to match the original tuning) and the tempo (I made it run a 6'50% faster). I also made a slight EQ, pumping up the 500-7500 kHz range and lowering the low freqs a little bit (bass was a bit boomy in my opinion)... Opinions? Is it worth it?
I like it being tuned. The recording is too bad for me to listen to though.
