Performance

Ok, the recordings are dated but I was there and they capture the energy, buzz and bouancy of the night. Glasgow was a second home to the Dublin boys and they had established a massive fan base. Barrowlands was a legendary musichall just reopened and this was U2's first appearance. We'd queued for hours and there were hundreds of people trying to get in. Hence Bono's "open up and let them in" comment. It was an riotous party with the the band palying on the crest of a wave.

Sound

Recording: "Hybrid Casio Capsules - Sony WM D6" - 4 stars

Audience

The audience was mental. You can hear them singing "Celtic Celtic" halfway through. In those days stage invasion was standard but Bono stopped it early on when the first gate crasher tried to make it. That meant the band remained focused on performance.
The bounce through Electric Co will forever be the best ever. Bono fell over in the final section and sang in tongues before starting Amazing Grace.


Overall

Awesome. Captured a night I will never forget, 25 years ago.
