From what I can tell, it sounds like the band are putting on a great performance! Everyone is so full of energy during all the tracks, Bono's voice is great and the other members seem to be on point too. However, it's very difficult to tell due to the terrible audio.
The first half or so of the setlist is missing from the recording. The audio quality is probably one of the worst on the Boy Tour, with random speed-ups and slowdowns. Muffled sound and vocals are rampant in this recording, specifically with Larry's drums and Adam's bass. Only on certain parts of the recording can they be heard. I get that the audio is around forty years old, but I've heard much better quality from earlier shows. Recording: Audience microphone - 1.5 stars
The audience is much more enthusiastic than Onkel Po's crowd from a few days ago, and they cheer very loudly after the songs. From what I can tell, they seem happy to be there.
It's a shame that the audio quality is so bad, because almost all of the songs here are actually performed really well! Bono's voice really shines through on the tracks. The highlights are The Cry/Electric Co. and Twilight with it's neat segue into Out Of Control. Only listen if you are an early U2 fan, as the terrible audio keeps this from being a great show to listen to.

6. 11 O'Clock Tick Tock
Disc Length: 24:53
It is very difficult to find detailed information on this concert...no description in Pimm's book, nothing at the usual web sites. This disc has been contained in several collector's lists as this particular show...difficult to prove, as nowhere in these few tracks does Bono mention where he is. This clearly is incomplete. The final track fades as the group goes into The Ocean. In fact, the quality of 11 O'Clock Tick Tock is a bit different than the first five tracks, anyone's guess if it belongs.
With such a small set of files, I figured there would be little to lose by torrenting it, and seeing if anyone had any reason to doubt the authenticity of this...if it is not accurate, then many collectors would need to change their lists.
The quality is muddy, B-/B, and there is some variance in the tape speed in the first and sixth tracks...
So, either this is a rare gem, or a mislabeled mistake which needs to be corrected for everyone's benefit.

what they said
"Adam literally got me by the scruff of the neck and roped me into U2. I didn't really want to be in a band. I was only into it for the sake of the sound of electric guitar, drums, bass and singing."
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.
