LDB Special Series #252/bis

Taper notes: "Out of my 7,000+ shows and radio broadcasts, I have many concerts that were special for some reasons: the setlist, the musicians, the venue or unexpected events. These are the ones I'd like to propose you. Most of these come from my cassettes collection, so they will be released at a slower pace than my Master Series! But you won't be disappointed! I will try to gather the most unusual things I have in my collection and, as always, your feedback and comments will be my reward for all the work involved in this project. DO NOT share this music on mp3, just convert it for your own use. Sharing mp3's is the right way to make me stop sharing music.  That was seeded as volume 252 of my Special Series. raygun888 was kind enough to send me his tape which is far superior to my copy although a bit less complete. Hope you will enjoy this addendum!"

Bootslive 5 cents: Our sincere thanks to Wayne C. who recorded and to Zebweber by the transfer and conversion described above,  as well as sharing it, thus enabling hundreds, perhaps thousands of people could know this concert, a concert from a time when U2 began their climb towards the top, towards the position of the most important rock band in the planet, and Bono began to assume its role, on which being a celebrity is well used to the benefit of worthy causes, but that's another story.

Special thanks to Chrisedge for allowing use of his excellent audience source. Basic fades added at the beginning and end of the show but not mid show."

Taper/Seeder Notes:
"Please don't sell this recording in any way - no cash for blanks, 2:1s, or any other form of "getting paid for your time". Just share it freely. Please do not attempt to remaster this recording and spread it around. There is little to no point of trying to compete with the original processing. If you need to re-eq it for your own listening pleasure, that's fine, just don't spread it around.
If you're going to destroy the sound of some ultra-spiffy high-end rigs by encoding and spreading them via mp3's, please keep them on your own computer and not dilute the tradepool. And I would really appreciate not seeing this sendspaced, ysi'ed , etc all over the web in 17 different formats.
And if people want more stuff sounding like this on the next tour, I can start up a donations fund to help fund for tickets + travel + lodging and then sell on ebay.. Call it Vertvid...oh wait that's been done. Have to think of a new name."

Noiseless notes:
Short description for lazy people: "Nice, get this."

Long description for patient people: "This might be the most underrated U2 boot ever: a three disc collection of studio sessions of a band searching for a new sound. Well, obviously they hadn't quite found it in 1990. This is halfway between Rattle and Hum, and Achtung Baby, literally. But interesting it is. Amongst the tracks on the Jewels set a lot of fooling around, experimenting, up to nine versions of the same song, fragments, unfinished ideas. Hard to listen to.  But also a lot of complete songs, almost hidden in the mess, some of them completely finished and in pristine studio quality. Even nicer to me sound the loosely, laidback played early versions of some songs that made it onto the final album Achtung Baby. While official U2 albums tend to sound like every freshness is squeezed out of it by (poor) production, here is a vivid and exciting sound to experience. Anyway.
From the 36 songs I took the more or less complete songs only, and out of the various takes of the same song I picked the one or two that I liked most. Then, there was some work to do. Firstly, throughout the cd set, one channel was phase reversed which spoiled every listening fun. Secondly, the songs lacked presence and vividness, due to poor EQ'ing and muddy ultra low frequencies which shouldn't be there.
After fixing these flaws, I ended up with a blistering collection of the first steps towards U2's most exciting album ever. But then what? How to organize a compilation like this? It is impossible to determine any chronological order. Moreover, while some songs could be pressed on silver right away, other songs are rather raw so there's no real consistency. Not much logic and rational choices left. So, I chose eleven songs that I liked best and put them on disc one in the same order they were on the Jewels bootleg (except for Wake Up because it was added in the last minute). Then I took a B-selection of another eleven songs I considered of lesser concern for some reason, and threw them on disc two in the order I remastered them, i.e. random order. If you want a different order: all songs are sector aligned, and all songs end with 2.5 seconds of silence, so you can order them yourself in any order you like.
