Hi all, just getting into this site and posted this question on @U2 before realizing there were forums here. Would love recs for your favorite HQ versions of Bad - especially ones with great Edge peaks. Thanks.

Bad / All I Want Is You (snippet) / Norwegian Wood (snippet)
Good sound for the time. Might not be as clear as others, but it's definitely my favourite version of Bad. The passion and energy in this performance is amazing. Also Bono really pushes his voice and manages to find something special. Definitely worth a listen.
I don't know what kind of sound your into in a bootleg but for this song I'd probably just check out all the 5 star rated shows with Bad in it and you'll probably need to pick your own personal favourite from that. My own personal favourite is Brussels 2 on the 360 tour, obviously bias since I was there but it was a nice surprise at the time and a great performance of the song plus I like the different recordings available on here from that show.

did you know
A local violinist, Steve Wickham, approached The Edge one morning at a bus stop and asked if U2 had any need for a violin on their next album (the War album). In the studio for only half a day, Wickham's electric violin became the final instrumental contribution to Sunday Bloody Sunday.
