I give this 4 stars. There are some serious problems with the audience mic the first 2 songs but thankfully everything improves after that. There are problems with the master tape before One Tree Hill, although it doesn't affect the actual song. There's also a slight hiccup at Pride. Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars
This bootleg captures perfectly the crowd going wild with the songs.
The concert is 5 stars, I only removed 1/2 star because of the sound. This concert has one of the best Exit performances I've heard, it's so intense!
I'm not that crazy about the covers they played in this tour, but People Get Ready was also nice, with someone in the audience playing with the band and the crowd going nuts.
The setlist is great, with OTH and Gloria at the beginning, and Spanish Eyes in the end. WOWY even without snippets was a highlight.
You should check this one out.

Live from Austin, TX on November 22nd, 1987. Source History: D3 / Minimic Master Cassettes -> DAT -> AMD1 SA90 Cassettes -> Sony TC-WR635S Cassette Deck -> Philips Consumer CDR Recorder (Analog In) -> EAC-Secure DAE -> WAV Editing in CE2k @32 bit (S. Vahey) -> CD WAVE Editor -> WAV -> MKW Audio Compression Tools 0.97 BETA 1 -> WAV/SHN Conversion
Review from Steve's Concert Trading Page run by Steve Vahey
NOTE: This is from a nice, clean D3 source recorded most likely with the Minimic. This was a really clean 1st generation cassette conversion to cd. No EQ adjustment or noise reduction were needed at all. Just some digital editing was done at 32 bit to remove some gaps, increase the levels, and fade in/out. The tapes were recorded at a good level, so there's really no audible background noise on this. These tapes were a real pleasure to convert compared to some shows I've worked on.
The first couple tracks are slightly less clear than the rest of the show. By track 2 (I Will Follow) the taper starts to get his mics up and it's pretty consistently excellent for the rest of the show. No nearby crowd noise and no conversations. Taper had good positioning, although it's slightly distant (kick drum is not very punchy). This is a complete recording. There are two short distortions at the beginning of Disc 1, track 5 (One Tree Hill). They sound like they're from the master to me, but aren't distracting at all.
Additional comments: This is honestly one of the clearest Joshua Tree shows I've heard. Honestly, disc 2 even blows away "Rock's Hottest Ticket". If you love the J.T. era (and who doesn't), this is a MUST HAVE!

"U2 were doing then, badly, what they now do well. They were all standing in the same positions as they stand on stage now."

did you know
According to an interview from 1982 the song 'October' is about the Bolsheviek revolution in Russia in 1917, that brought Communism to power. This theme is mixed with a personal theme, possibly Bono's mothers death.
