1. Notre Dame - Elevation
2. Sarajevo - Popmart
3. Dublin - New Years Eve '89
4. Washington, DC ZooTV

*Reminds me that I have a few more boots at home that I haven't organised and listened to. :O

1.) 11-7-87 Denver "Back In Denver" Soundboard remaster
2.) 5-15-01 Chicago soundboard, the "good non dropout" ALD version, great quality, 11 O Clock and Out of Control played, and because I was there.
3.) 1-31-98 Sao Paulo Brazil, FM broadcast
4.) 12-30-89 Dublin soundboard, the night before the New Years show. I think the setlist is better on this night as well as the performance.
5.) 5-30-83 Devore CA soundboard, US Festival, great performance.

From the ones I have, and they are not so many, I would go with the following, in no particular order:

Zoo Europa 1993 (gotta love this one )
Popmart São Paulo 1998 (some personal reasons, you know )
Irving Plaza 2000
Boston 4th night (sorry, can't remember the date) 2001
New Year's Eve 1989

and I recently was given a copy of Duets, which I'm in love with currently.

Personally, I think the sound quality is the best out of all 4 shows at the Point Depot.

That is my first and so far only bootleg (working on getting more ) and let me tell you.. it is worth whatever you have to pay. It has a fantastic set list, WONDERFUL sound quality, and Bono sounds brilliant.

"You must not look down on someone just 'cos they are 14 years old. When I was that age I listened to the music of John Lennon and it changed my way of seeing things, so I'm just glad that 14 year olds are coming to see U2 rather than group X." - Bono, 1988

New Years Eve In Dublin 12/31/89
Zoo-TV In Dublin 8/28/93
Joshua Tree In Denver - 11/7/87
Popmart Mexico - 12/3/97
Elevation Cleveland - 5/3/01

These are the boots that I would recommend. There are a lot of others though that are excellent and I'm sure that once the dust settles a handful of Elevation boots will comeout that are of good quality.

1.) 89-12-30 Dublin. Damn near perfect soundboard recording of one of u2's best ever shows. A treasure.

2.) 97-09-30 Tel Aviv. Excellent sounding soundboard recording of a great Popmart show.

3.) 92-08-06 Hersey. Poor sounding audience recording of the outside broadcast recordings, but is worth it simply to hear the Acrobat to ZooTV opening sequence. Why? Why didn't they do this in concert.

4.) 01-05-03 Cleveland. The ALD and audience recording (referred to as Cleveland Tea Party). Incredible mix and great Elevation Tour setlist.

5.) 92-10-14 Houston. Excellent audience recording. This is the first bootleg I ever bought. I firmly believe that had this bootleg had terrible sound, then I never would of gotten into bootleg buying/trading at all and probably wouldn't have become such a fan of U2 (since the live recordings are really the essence of u2.) So, I got lucky and I still ove to listen to this bootleg and get taken back to that fateful day in the summer of 93 that I bought this.

Word.

peace

I just started collecting too, so I don't think that I can name 5!! My two favorite though are:

Rock's hottest ticket (OMG, This show rocks)
and Zooropa, Europa!!

Hey, fellow new collectors. Email me, and we can start a newbie collectors circle!! I am sure that if we all only have a few, then we don't all have the same one's!! spinninghead77@hotmail.com

They performed Bad in São Paulo as well, the first concert in Jan 30th 1998. Never heard of a bootleg from that show though, there was no TV or FM broadcast.

I like how bootlegs become as legendary as studio released albums.

The more of these I drink the more Bono makes sense.. - Bean from the KROQ Breakfast with U2.
