They're on fire! Almost flawless performance in one of their earliest concert outside their comfort zone (which was mainly Dublin and central England at the time). The second performance of 11 O'Clock Tick Tock and Another Time Another Place are incredible.
Pretty good considering it's almost 40 years old and an audience recording! You can tell this is definitely NOT a first gen copy of the show and there are some glitches here and there, but it's really listenable. Not 5 stars but you'll enjoy the recording! It sounds clearer than many other audience recordings, even from recent years. Recording: Audience microphone - 1 star
I think this was their first concert in Scotland and well, you can tell they're pretty passionate about it. Their long term relationship with Scotland started here and these lucky 400 people were responsible of it.
Very good overall. The recording is enjoyable despite the few glitches, the audience were on fire and the band was clearly pumped to play their first gig ever in Scotland... A not-to-be-missed show from the early days!

"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.

"For a long time I believed the rock and roll mythology of acquiring experience without responsibility. I chose to deal with being in the band in a very single minded way and I developed a lifestyle that I thought added up to what I was. I don't want to go back there again, I'm comfortable with this."
- Adam Clayton, looking back on the eighties/start nineties

Twenty songs were recorded for Zooropa during the sessions, but ultimately 10 were chosen for the final track listing. One piece that was left off the record was "In Cold Blood", which featured somber lyrics written by Bono in response to the Bosnian War and was previewed prior to the album's release.
