Of the three gigs the esteemed Brother KM recorded in the spring of 1987, this one would rank third in terms of sound quality, though in listening again today I am impressed with 1) the bass response of the cheap, little Aiwa mic and 2) the passion and enthusiasm of the very vocal crowd. Unlike the night before, there are no notable cuts here though the very beginning of "Maggie's Farm" and "40" are clipped on the master as they are here. In all, a pretty darn good recording from those heady early days of the Joshua Tree tour considering he was sitting two-thirds of the way back.
