Performance notes: U2 perform a studio session produced by Horslips' bassist Barry Devlin. It was planned for 5 songs in total to be recorded. In interviews Devlin has indicated that work had begun on a fourth track, believed to be an early version of Stories For Boys, but this was not recorded after the session came to an early end following the intervention of Larry's father. After circulating for years in bootleg form, the three recorded songs were finally given an official release in 2004 as part of iTunes' "The Complete U2" digital pack.

Not much to say... 3 great performances of early songs, excelent demo of Shadows And Tall Trees, and amazing performances of The Fool and Street Mission (maybe the longest Edge's solo in studio, don't know exactly about Unknown Caller and Crystal Ballroom, but at least this version is in a top 3 of Edge's longest solos in studio)

what they said
"We're at a point where production has gotten so slick that people don't trust it anymore... We were starting to lose trust in the conventional sound of rock & roll - the conventional sound of guitar ... those big reverb-laden drum sounds of the '80s or those big, beautiful, pristine vocal sounds with all this lush ambience and reverb. So we found ourselves searching for other sounds that had more life and more freshness."
- The Edge, explaining the band's motivation for seeking a new sound with Achtung Baby
