Pretty solid performance from the band tonight who, are starting to get the hang of performing on the Popmart tour now by this show which is the sixth night of the tour, Bono sounds a lot better when compared to Vegas and, the band make fewer mistakes than Vegas though, they do sometimes still mess up in spots but, at least it's better than what would happen at Vegas which, makes the show a lot more enjoyable when compared to that show.
Pretty clear audience recording which, is also well balanced so you can easily hear what the band are playing and how the audience is reacting to the songs while also not overpowering the sound of the band I will say I did enjoy this recording a lot when I listened to the show.
Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars
When compared the Vegas, the audience is also better than the audience there as they are enthusiastic, loud and seem to be enjoying the show a lot which is nice to hear, they also cheer in spots during certain sections of songs which shows that they are engaged with the show and what the band are doing they also do in fact sing along with the songs which further proves their engagement with the show.
A much more pleasant performance listen on the early stages of the Popmart tour with the band making fewer mistakes when compared to previous shows and featuring the bonuses of songs that were unfortunately dropped later on as the tour progressed during the North American leg such as, "Do You Feel Loved" and "If God Will Send His Angels" so it's pretty cool to hear a decent early Popmart show, the only con I'd say this show has is the absence of the song "If You Wear That Velvet Dress" which, would be after "Discotheque" if it was performed here.
Highlights on my listen of the show included the following songs:
Do You Feel Loved
I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
Last Night On Earth
Until The End Of The World/(Break On Through snippet)
Staring At The Sun
Edge's Karaoke Spot
Miami/Bullet The Blue Sky
Please/Sunday Bloody Sunday Snippet/Where The Streets Have No Name
With Or Without You

Found this DAT in the archive and was pleasantly surprised by the quality when I threw it on. Back in the day, JEMS experimented with mixing two source recordings from the same show, now commonly called matrixing. This DAT blends JEMS' Nak 700 master with our friend MH's Sonic Studios master, picking the best channel of each. Given the different decks, the sources eventually go out of sync but that can be corrected. You may hear an adjustment or two on here, the most notable one I heard was at the start of "Where the Streets Have No Name."
The reason we favored such mixes at the time is that they created a wide open soundstage and seemed additive when it came to strengthening the best qualities of both recordings.
From the research I did online, the widely disseminated source for this early PopMart show is the bootleg Popmart Shopping Eugene. I don't have a copy of that but based on the description I suspect it is an entirely different source, and presume this recording to be an upgrade.
We may have used the shotgun attachment on the Nak 700s; I will try to find out. MH was on the floor as I recall and the JEMS team (well, half of us anyway) were up on the side a section back from the stage.
I remember thinking this was a strange show, the highlight of which for me was "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me." It is probably better on tape in hindsight than it was in person.
Anyway, this seemed unusual enough to post here. Sample provided.

what they said
"Rehearsing is boring. I'm bored with the sound of my own voice. And that shouldn't be! Something must be wrong with a singer who feels like that."

The Edge recorded all the songs from the Boy album using his natural finished Gibson Explorer. He drew inspiration from music he was listening to at the time, including Television and Siouxsie and the Banshees.
