Fantastic performance from the band here with everyone being in great form and despite there being a few flaws such as skipping a verse out from Love Rescue Me most of the highs that are done tonight easily outweigh the low moments, in my opinion, Bono is also in mostly good form albeit with a couple of rough patches in earlier numbers but, he finds his ground a couple of songs in and then delivers a satisfactory performance.
A bit rough though, it is still quite listenable and the atmosphere captured in this recording is pretty nice as well, so that's a nice positive despite the quality not being the best. Recording: "Melbourne Memoirs Vol. 5" - 3.5 stars
Very loud and enthusiastic Australian audience who seem to be really enjoying themselves tonight as they sing along with the songs and seem to take every song in the set in a positive way which, really does help the show be as good as I think it is.
Amazing performance on the 1st leg of the Lovetown tour with everyone giving it their all tonight, there are also some unique things in the set mainly being the inclusion of the song Exit for the only time on the tour and the standard Lovetown setlist rotation which tonight includes Bullet The Blue Sky, Running To Stand Still and With Or Without You ending the show and All I Want Is You being quite early into the set, overall, I'd recommend this gig to anyone who is looking for a really energetic and brilliant 1st leg Lovetown performance as this one ticks all the boxes for me.
Song highlights included the following:
Where The Streets Have No Name
The Unforgettable Fire
Exit / Van Morrison's Gloria (snippet) only performance on Lovetown!
Desire / Not Fade Away (snippet)
All Along The Watchtower
When Love Comes To Town / In The Midnight Hour (snippet)

Retransfer notes Blackout [DG] - [Sept 11]
Following recent disussions with the legend Boyacrobat about his famous Lovetown Melbourne recordings i convinced him to revisit some of his tapes for a possible retransfer session of some of his masters. The feeling was that some distortion may have crept into the original transfers that he performed and released several years ago. Indeed this turned out to be the case upon examination. The tapes were originally recorded *very hott* by his portable toshiba cassette recorder due to the voltage that the mic he used for recording was injecting into the unit, which was unavoidable. There is small amounts of distortion due to this but the bigger problem was that when transferring the tapes for release, the level was also *very hott* coming off the tape and the deck he used for the orignal transfers did not have the headroom to handle these hot tapes and was driven into distortion and clipping when playing back. This time the transfer was done with a pro deck, a mint-condition Black Onkyo TA-2600 and into pro-tools via the Digidesign 002 Rack interface. Some other problems were corrected such as speed issues, frequency-phase correlation and image stabilisation and a more gentle maximizing from Sony Oxford Limiter. No EQ. Final FLAC was done with Sound Forge 10. The entire signal chain was handled with care and with the utmost attention to detail. The result is a far superior recording that is higher resolution with far less distortion and more headroom/punch with clarity. This is truely the definitive ultimate recording /transfer of this classic Melbourne Lovetown recording for your collection!

what they said
"It amazes me when people tell me they played it at their wedding or for comfort at a funeral. I go to myself, 'Are you crazy? It's about breaking up.'"
Bono, 2004, about the song 'One'

U2's first rehearsal as The Larry Mullen Band took place in Larry's kitchen in Artane, Ireland in 1976. The kitchen was the size of his entire drum kit used on modern-day touring and in the studio.
