They're probably on fire but we can't tell due to the dismal sound.
It sounds like the microphone was enclosed in a plastic bag that was then placed at the bottom of a water bucket and hid underneath a couple of thick blankets that were then placed in a house across the street from Edinburgh's Nite Club... 1 star is being generous. Recording: Audience microphone - 0.5 stars
This was their first concert in Scotland and if the sound was better you'd probably be able to tell the audience was pretty passionate about it. Their long term relationship with Scotland started here and these lucky 400 people were responsible of it.
Well, I don't really know how to rate. It's hard to tell what the gig was truly like.

"An Cat Dubh/Into The Heart" were probably played after "Touch" and not at the end of the concert. I left those
tracks at the end of the recording in the same way I received them on tape.
The recording might be incomplete because "Twilight" and "I Will Follow" are not on the recording (but had probably
been played after "The Electric Co.").
Transfer in February 2011 on request.

"We had no real idea what we’re doing, we just played the songs as you hear them."

did you know
The title of the song Hawkmoon 269 came from a place U2 passed by during the Conspiracy of Hope tour called Hawkmoon. The number 269 stands for the amount of mixes the song needed before it was ready, it took the band three weeks to record.
