Outstanding, really remarkable.


The reason I actually still LOVE this bootleg even with the sketchy sound is because before I was introduced to some of the truly high quality recordings on this website, this is what a bootleg SOUNDED like to me. That gritty, pitchy, clearly trasnferred from some sort of cassette sound. So quality-wise, it really is only a 3 or so. But emotionally, the sound should carry an old fashioned, nostalgic, and in a sense, true feeling.
Recording: "Bandera Blanca" - 3 stars


A spectacular audience as well...nothing to say that hasn't been said by the other reviewers. It's a really really great crowd!


A 5 star show for me that I can't say I'll ever forget. This one will get revisited time and time again.

Highlights: (Since there were many, I'll post the absolute-best)
-The Unforgettable Fire
-Sunday Bloody Sunday
-Party Girl
-Spanish Eyes
-With or Without You
