05 Even Better Than The Real Thing - faded out - (2:32)
Recorded outside the venue (an old airport). The distance was very far and for this reason the sound is poor. There is some crowd noise on the recording.
This soundcheck includes Bono on vocals. Mostly he is not present at soundchecks. I guess the reason for this "full band soundcheck" was the radio broadcast.
This show was (partially) recorded and the songs
Even Better Than The Real Thing,
Last Night On Earth,
Until The End Of The World,
New Year's Day,
Pride (radio speaker overdubs)
were broadcasted a few weeks later. Maybe U2 wanted to make sure perfect recording levels.
I have never traded this soundcheck before (maybe did one or two copies). I uploaded it because some collectors might be "completists". If you
are not a completist then you should skip this torrent.
First transfer and upload in March 2010.

what they said
"In Madison Square Garden, the lights came on during Where The Streets Have No Name and there must have been ten thousand people with tears running down their faces. And I told them they looked beautiful, which became the line in City Of Blinding Lights."
- Bono on playing New York after 9/11
did you know
Much of the Boy album's lyrics focus on thoughts and frustrations of adolescence. Some songs, including "I Will Follow", focus on the death of Bono's mother when he was 13.
