Eager young band. Bono’s voice is a little raspy but his enthusiasm makes up for it.
Bono sings “call out in pain” during 11 O'clock, and mentions they felt their last performance in Belfast was subpar. Another Time is excellent, as is The Electric Co. — both classic versions to be sure. I Will Follow seems a tad short but is excellent. Edge’s guitar kicks off A Day Without Me with fire; Bono alters the lyrics and Adam messes around with the bass getting fuzzy. Out of Control ends on a high, again with Bono changing words.
Excellent sound, audience are present but not too loud. Unfortunately, this source doesn’t have whole show. Recording: "BBC Northern Ireland - Original broadcast 1981" - 4.5 stars
Very enthused, chanting eagerly.
Excellent show but short. Unfortunately this source isn’t the whole thing. The band are passionate and hard-hitting, lots of songs sparkle.

"BBC Four Rebroadcast 2019 (4 tracks only - Belfast 1981 Live EP)"
Origins: DVB-C Television Broadcast
Credits:BigGiRL (Recording transferer), BBC (Audio Taper)
02-11 O'Clock Tick Tock
03-Cry-The Electric Co.
04-Out Of Control
Originally broadcasted by the BBC on August 12, 1981 &
re-broadcasted on BBC Four on March 16, 2019.
The four U2 songs were alternated with the set of Stiff
Little Fingers, so I had to make some edits. An while
at it, I also reduced a few odd peaks here and there so
volume could be adjusted without any clipping.
The good news is that BBC 4 seemed to have aired this
rebroadcast without significant loudness boost (if any).

Here's another one while I have out this big BOY Tour CD wallet. I've seen another bootleg of this show called "Boy Belfast" but it only had 10 tracks, where this has 11 (it includes the introduction of the band by the BBC announcer stating various accolades). Very nice early FM broadcast.

"Forget about a bad-hair day, I was having a bad-hair life. I look at pictures from that period and I am the Prince of Mullet, and the only thing that's keeping that mullet away from pop history is a hat designed for a taller man. There's still people who can't like us because of that hair-do."
- Bono on the 80s
