Taper Mike Day contacted me on U2Start with his hitherto unknown recording
of Sheffield '81. The initial transfer was done quite rudimentary but already
sounding very good. Especially compared to the only known source for this show,
which is barely listenable...if listenable at all…!
So safe to say that this an upgrade, but I think that this recording also stands
out amongst other early UK October shows. And what makes it even more great that
this Sheffield gig was really nice. The band seemed relaxed and self confident.
Or perhaps they just felt safe and at home with the Sheffield crowd. And it did
great for the music and the songs.
As taper and master tape are residing in California, USA, we were very pleased
that JEMSHQ was willing to make a tape transfer on their legendary Nakamichi
CR-7A tape machine. This tape probably has never sounded this good, and we’re
all very happy to make it available for the first time to the community.
Unfortunately "Gloria" is missing, but for the rest all other notes were captured!
My “post-production” didn’t involve any EQ or other dynamic processing. Just the
bear necessities like pitch adjustment (with “Spectral Pitch Analysis” > A=440),
re-sampling, dither, some simple fades and the track split.
BIG thanks to Erik of JEMSHQ for making the best tape transfer possible (and
giving me the opportunity to “work” in cooperation with the legendary JEMS!).
BIG thanks to Seneca as well for being more than just the “man in the middle…”
LAST but not least, the BIGGEST thanks to Mike for contacting me and making
this recording available for everyone…!!!

what they said
"I want to be useful. That is our family prayer, as you know. It is not the most grandiose prayer. It is just, we are available for work. That is U2's prayer. We want to be useful, but we want to change the world. And we want to have fun at the same time."
- Bono, 2017

During the recording of 'She's A Mystery To Me', which Bono and The Edge wrote for Roy Orbison, Bono quoted a phrase from 1987 that he would use on With Or Without You during these sessions in 1989 for Orbison's album: 'Sleight of hand'.
