Favourite Bootleg?

What bootleg do you listen to the most?

I love Dublin RDS arena 28-08-1993 and Sarajevo.

(erhm...I hope we are allowed to talk about this..??!! )

There's so many favourites, I don't think I could pin it down to just one.

Dortmund 84

Chicago 87

All 4 Point Depot 1989 nights

10th January 1990 Rotterdam: A real contender for my all time favourite, great sound quality, great atmosphere, incredible performances, Bono's vocal's are a career peak.

Washington 92

Santiago 98: The DVD's a must

Twickenham 05: radio broadcast, amazing quality, Bono's voice is fantastic, the renditions have real energy. Plus I listened to it live

I did recover by going to San Siro (Milan) though, and it was amazing, pity the bootleg I have found of that gig is awful, you can actually hear the people recording arguing in a Neapolitan accent. ehehehe.

I appreciated the effort though..

- 4 November 1981, Berlin: best early bootleg I've heard. Though 6 May 1983, Boston is pretty awesome too.
- 21 March 1985, Chicago: Amazing sound quality recordings of amazing performances. Best UF ever.
- The aforementioned 4 gigs at the Point Depot in December 1989 and 10 January 1990, Rotterdam.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

^ There's a version of that Irving Plaza gig mixed to 5.1 that I have. I have the data files (FLAC) but I don't have the equipment to play it yet, so there they are just waiting for me.

Anyway, my alltime favorite, no question (and also my first bootleg) is 1989-12-30 Dublin. I love others of course, but that one will always be king for me.

So I've had this idea recently that Interference should do a boot of the week. Sort of like a book club. People suggest really good ones, we listen to them and have a thread going that week to discuss the show/compare song versions/appreciate it. Would anyone else be into this?

January 10th 1990, Rotterdam. It is so damn good I find it hard to listen to since a lot of other shows pale into insigificance in comparison.

Yeah I like that idea and I'd definitely contribute, but it's whether anybody else would be up for it as well though.

I am dl'ing this right now, I started before I read this, and now I'm even more psyched to hear it!


If people want to do a "bootleg of the week club" reply and we'll get it going on, say, Sunday?
