Well, the performance is very good, the bootleg isn't one of the best of the tour but still listenable and very good performance from young U2.


The recording isn't bad, people chatting makes the bootleg downfall, but still with conversations in audience this is an listenable bootleg, but if you are rigorous with quality, don't download this
Recording: Audience microphone - 3 stars


Not hear nobody scream for the band, only people chatting, that is bad, I think all band have to endure this at the early career. But at least they clap at the end of the songs.


Interesting bootleg, great performance and an average recording, maybe if the taper were in another position we can get a better bootleg, but only bad thing is people chatting and their chatting interfering on the recording

Highlights: 11 O'Clock Tick Tock, Touch, An Cat Dubh/Into the Heart, I Will Follow (at this moment people that was chatting were enjoying the show) and Father Is An Elephant (rare song that some people says that was an alternative A Day Without Me, some says this is an early version from A Celebration, and some says this is only a rare song)

Lowlights: Only low is all that gabble appearing on the recording, but still is listenable to me.
