Sound Quality:
Good audience. This recording is very good for an audience recording from 1984. All the frequencies are quite audible, as well as the bass and the high sounds. The audience reactions are well heard but it's not irritating. The music tops the audience.

This is a very "rare" bootleg. To my knowledge only 25 were printed. The discs are gold colored, which could indicate that they are made on private CD-Rs. The disc printing is very plain; only black letters giving the name of the bootleg and the source. The back of the bootleg says it is made in Milano (Italy) but when I bought it the shop owner said that the distribution was only in the Netherlands. This bootleg came together with the Amsterdam 1989 show (also 25 copies). The cover is nice but single-sheeted. The back has the same background. Two pictures shot by Anton Corbijn during the The Unforgettable Fire photo session make the artwork worthwhile. The show is strong and solid. The audience sing along very well. With only 90 minutes of disc space used, the bootleg could have been filled with another recording, but this is not done.
This is the original pressing on this label.
