Performance

Great energetic performance from the band. All really seemed to enjoy playing the Rattle & Hum tunes together with The Sun Ra Arkestra. Especially the new arrangement of When Love Comes To Town was great (and likely well rehearsed).

Sound

Obviously the webstream has had some compression as it went on-line. It does give the recording a slight lossy sound but overall the clarity and dynamic energy of this webcast is excellent. The lossy flacs have the advantage of having one compression cycle less. Re-sampling from 48kHz to 44.1kHz (via Audition) seems to be alright as the dynamic range of the webstream was up to 20kHz only.

Recording: "Live At The Apollo" - 5 stars

Audience

Very excited and happy crowd... as they should be! Perhaps some even got a little too enthusiastic during sensitive and delicate moments. But not too awkward, I guess.

Overall

A very nice bootleg despite the somewhat lossy sound. Probably sounds best on the car stereo! It's a pity that Red Flag Day and the first take of Every Breaking Wave didn't make it to the stream. Glad though that the full Rattle & Hum part and the beautiful version of Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses were kept. And let’s not forget the blistering Electric Co.
