As noted, the second night of the tour and Bono's voice is failing him, but instead of holding back the malady propels him and the band to an inspired performance. Hard to believe such a "rig" could yield this recording but it did; the remaster was mostly for levels and a touch of sharpening. The show sounds gloriously wide open, translucent and every bit as good as what's being done on this year's tour if not better. Don't let the bit of crowd at the start fool you.
There was a crowd surge to the stage during "People Get Ready" that accidentally shut off the deck, but Brother KM did get most of the song and restarted in time to catch the ending.
The transfer/remaster was done by me a few years ago and some U2 collectors may have this version indirectly (the circulating version appears to be called Back in the Desert), but I see many many inferior versions on lists out there (from the bootlegs Joshua Tree in Flames and Governor Mecham & MLK). This is the real thing from the master cassette and the original remastered CD-R made from it.

"It's very much a guitar record. Vertigo, Love and Peace, City of Blinding Lights, All Because of You, all pretty up, rocky tunes. A lot of them are a kick-back to our very early days, so it's like with each year we have gathered a little bit more and this is what we are now."
- Adam Clayton on How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb

U2 hold the record for the most powerful live sound system of all time. It used over a million watts - capable of killing someone if turned up to full.
