Do not sell this recording.

This recording was made for me and you (too).
Jimi Hendrix and Sonny and Cher get a shoutout from Bono in this show.
New Year's Day is introduced as two hearts beat as one. (apparently
Bono lost track of the setlist). another sold out U2 show in Boston.
it was a good show despite a few odd moments, plenty of energy and even
some Bono Jackson. hey why not? at this time U2 and Michael Jackson were
the hottest names in rock and pop music (along with Hall and Oates).
this appears to be the full show. all the songs are complete.
most of the encore applause was edited out of the source tape.
just before "I fall down", Bono says "it's great to be back in N.Y." and
is answered with a resounding chorus of boos. (the only round of boos
in this show.) then he follows that by saying "this is where we live,
Boston." that gets the cheering going again. Two sold out shows at the
Orpheum this time, after just one in late 1981.
the U2 mania here was irrreversible by this point and out of control.
next time it was 3 shows at the Worcester Centrum. (and Boston Garden)

Notes - I taped this show direct to DAT in 1994 when it was rebroadcast on WBCN.
The annoucer at that time said this was a composite of 2 shows and was sourced
from a band-mixed LP. You can hear a few pops and crackles at the beginning of
track 06. I did a direct digital transfer of the original DAT to a second DAT
in order to edit out the commercials. Based on the setlists from db.etree.org
it seems reasonable to assume that tracks 1-9 are the complete show from the
5th and the encores are from the 6th. This is just speculation on my part.
I do not know how this sounds to other sources of this show.
Sound quality is otherwise excellent. Md5 file verify flac.

"I was there the food was shite, I was vegetarian, full blown, verging on the vegan and so it was a difficult time. But underneath all the cultural shock I enjoyed it. So I was happy to go back".
- Larry Mullen jr, 2009, on the NLOTH sessions in Fez, Morocco
did you know
The title of the song 'Stay (Faraway, So Close!)' alludes to the 1993 Wim Wenders film: Faraway, So Close.
