For the record, skott100's addition to the story didn't come out until just a few weeks ago.


In the meantime, everyone wash your hands and don't get sick!

Next, is it possible to post your cassette copy without any enhancements at all?
Oh that cassette is long gone, sorry. The only other significant difference that I can recall is "just give me what I want and noooo ooooone geeeeetttttssssss huuuuuuurrrrrrrrrt" in Vertigo has the audio slow down like the video version of the song.

So is the rough version of Mercy that was originally posted way back when the same quality that was on the cassette? Or did it sound just as good as the regular album tracks? I thought I recall reading that it didn't upload very well or something.

Or perhaps I'm way off here.

Yes. I am reasonably certain that there is only one version of Mercy circulating out there. It sounds unmastered and some of the levels are funky but that could be due to the limiations of the cassette format.

Also, the first verse is entirely too long, but that's just a matter of (my) opinion. ;-)

Wow, that's weird that it would sound like that on the cassette. I was hoping it was of the same quality as the released songs from HTDAAB.

Oh well. Thanks for providing us with this info!

It was released on ITUNES on the Complete U2 package along with several alternate versions of HTDAAB songs.

Nope, Mercy was not included in that Complete U2 package.
