Firstly, I don't listen that much to early day gigs, it's not that I dislike that period, I just like the 90's much more.
Although it's quite a small gig (running time is only one hour) it left a good impression of what U2 were standing for around that time. They played most of their (at that moment) best songs, although they didn't played 11 O'Clock, which is a shame. Bono's voice is fine (only low is the Give Peace A Chance snippet which sounds awful.), Edge, Larry & Adam are good too, although less energetic than six days later. Some nice speeches by Bono. Notable performances of A Day Without Me (Dear Prudence snippet), Electric Company (Larry's cymbals), Sunday Bloody Sunday , I Will Follow (very energetic, Edge's guitar) and Surrender (entire band).
Rated as 5-stars, I would give it 4-4.5* tops. There are a little cracks here and there and at some points you can't almost hear one of the instruments. It's not flawless.
It's a soundboard so it's quite logical that you can't hear the audience that good. Only during some seconds of the gig you can hear them (when Bono shouts 'California!' for example). 3.5*
Very good War Tour - Gig, I would rate this as 4.5 stars for letting 11 O'Clock out. Must-have for the medium bootleg collectors as me.
A Day Without Me
Sunday Bloody Sunday
I Will Follow
They should have played 11 O'Clock Tick Tock, and the Give Peace A Chance is afwul.

A clean sound, most likely from Cable Broadcast not Soundboard,
there is some static (digi-noise) on some tracks, but not too bad.

did you know
The versions of A Sort Of Homecoming and Bad included in the Wide Awake In America EP sound like live recordings but they were actually recorded during two soundchecks of the Unforgettable Fire tour in Europe. The audience noise was mixed in afterwards.
