One of JP's first-ever master recordings with the same gear as the later Joshua Tree tour shows done by Brother KM. The microphone moves around a bit (which effects the high end) but otherwise this is a very appealing recording that sounds close-up, with little audience noise (save for some clapping and later singing in "Pride") and solid instrument separation.

It's a short-ish show but one I always found enjoyable. Terrific versions of "Wire" and "Bad." In early 1985 I played songs from this show on my college radio station (KUPS). I don't think anyone taped that.

Butterking for JEMS
