I am new to this site so excuse my noob questions.
I have an audience recording of the 1982 Mar 13 Louisville Gardens show.
It's not the greatest quality but I have never seen any other recording of this show.
I was at the show and my firend recorded it with a handheld recorder from right in front of the stage.
I got a copy from him that night. Thirty years later I recorded it to wav and converted to flac.
Lucky the tape still played after all these years!
My question is: What is the best way for me to share this?
I have a FLAC of the complete set so it's pretty large.
That would be amazing Shawn, thanks for your contribution. You can send it to me via www.wetransfer.com, just send it to remy [at] u2start.com and I'll make sure it gets verified and put online on the website
Thanks for the suggestions.

Here's the link to the U2Live1982Mar13.flac: https://www.mediafire.com/?wclyishiw3t13tw
This is audience recording by Keenan Lawler -> cassette dup -> 44.1k/16 wav (by me, Shawn McMurdo) -> flac.
It is one file of the complete set.
I'm sure if someone has time and tools it could be remastered to reduce some of the audience noise and broken up into songs.
We were excited, especially when Bono was crowd surfing on us and someone tried to take his leather jacket.
Anyway, I hope everyone enjoys this show.
I sure did! We left after U2 played and before J Geils Band came on. The show was over. :-)
"When we set out on this record it was Larry who came up with the plan not to have a plan. He put up this idea that wouldn’t it be great just to make music for its own sake, not for the purpose of a live show or on album but just to see what we’re capable of.."
- Bono, September 2008, talking on the upcoming album
did you know
The photograph on the Songs of Innocence album cover was shot a year in advance as an experiment and Larry didn't think he'd see it again.
