Bono ad-libs a little extra in Twilight. Adam comes through fantastically on An Cat Dubh. Surrender sounds excellent - Edge and Adam are tearing the song apart. Bono is funny during Two Hearts, and either improvises a few lines or sings an unlisted snippet. Edge sounds good on Seconds. The Electric Co. is quite long. Bono extends the ending of I Fall Down into a bit of a singalong.
Starts off a little rough early in Out of Control but seems to even out just a bit. By Surrender, it's probably more like 4 stars. Recording: "ECM 939T - WM-D6 (1stGen)" - 4 stars
You can hear some of them talking in the background at certain points, but other people are quite excited. They seem to get more into it as the show progresses. Bono says Austin is an important city for them. The band seem to feel the audience has been very responsive, so they play Party Girl.
Some people fight over a white flag during Sunday Bloody Sunday, the irony of which seems lost on them, and Bono briefly halts the song to tell them off.
A strong show on the whole. Sound is pretty good, between 3.5-4 stars, and the audience generally is good. Several really strong performances.
- Two Hearts Beat As One (naturally...)
- I Fall Down
- New Year's Day (again, as always...)
- 11 O'Clock Tick Tock with the snippet of Drowning Man

New transfer of U2's Austin stop on the War tour, this show and source has
circulated for some time from a 1st Gen > CDR (?) and an unknown low gen tape
transfer. This comes from my 1st generation copy and takes out all the CDR lineage,
I believe you will find this to be a big material upgrade for a couple of reasons.
The raw capture of this show is very low end heavy, typical for an outdoor capture.
After taming and tightening up the bass so it sounds like an actual instrument and
a few other frequency tweaks in combination with correcting the pitch I'm extremely
happy with the final results.
Don't confuse this as a different source due to the lack of audience noise matching
the circulating versions as I've given this one the deluxe treatment and extracted
95% of the close to the taper offending noises. All the annoying outside noises like
the high pitched whistle in the middle of "October", the extremely annoying whistle
at the start of "Gloria" and at the start of "Party Girl" as well as plenty of
audience chatter and yelling have been seamlessly extracted.
The boys really seems to take to playing in Austin, they are definitely firing on
all cylinders here adding the "Party Girl" bonus song. We also get a mid-song
interruption as Bono stops "Sunday Bloody Sunday" due to the audience fighting over
a white flag, assumably thrown from the stage.
I believe with the combination of quality and performance you will find this show
ranks as one of the very best War tour performances.

I received this on 2 cd-r's, but i believe it will fit on a single 80m cd-r.
VG/Ex. Audience recording. Sorry no info re: mics/taper. There is a bit
of tape hiss, but it's really not distracting at all.

"The desert was immensely inspirational to us as a mental image for this record. Most people would take the desert on face value and think it's some kind of barren place, which of course is true. But in the right frame of mind, it's also a very positive image, because you can actually do something with blank canvas, which is effectively what the desert is."
- Adam Clayton on the Joshua Tree
did you know
Pride (In The Name Of Love) came out of a soundcheck in Hawaii, the melody and the chords. Which is also the place where the work on the album (The Unforgettable Fire) started.
