9 I Shall Be Released
Pulled this out of the low shelves. My copy (marked second gen.)
was obtained circa 1987-88, and that's the cassette I transferred
here so no worries about MP3s.
I honestly don't remember the story of who taped and how I got it,
but I have a few guesses. The quality of the recording is surprisingly
good in my opinion (sample below). There's a bit of noise in one channel
and some very very excited young women nearby, but otherwise close,
Upon hearing "Pride" I thought for sure the tape was slow, but when I
checked the tape loop for "Bad" against another known source, it seemed
to match up (to my ears; I didn't do a truly scientific measurement)
which leads me to think they just played "Pride" slow that night.
This version of "Bad" might be the most improvised take ever.
Bono barely sticks to the lyrics. Tape includes the "Sun City" and
"I Shall Be Released" encores featuring other artists.
Short and sorta sweet. I posted about this on the Forum and it sounded
like most people had a crappy copy of this so I suspect it will be an upgrade
for most of you.

Comments: This recording has a fair sound quality.
The music sounds somewhat distanced but all instruments
and the vocala are clearly audible. What is more distracting,
especially during the more quiet songs, is a rumbling sound
in the background.
