Larry's best recorded live drum sound
What do you think?__________________
Obviously the mix on some recordings has a lot to answer for. Just search the videos for The Fly from ZOO TV tours - different TV recordings appear to emphasise the drum sound or the guitar sound which is a shame because I loved that Brady snare sound when it was right. One at the soundcheck in Lakeland, Florida 1992 - was spot on.
For me, Self Aid in Dublin 1986 has an awesome snare sound.
The overall kit mix on Under A Blood Red Sky film is great too. You hear ALL the kit. A very big tom sound going off there.
Paris 1987 sounds a bit muddy, not much top end/hihat stuff.
The clarity in the Rattle And Hum film - especially With Or Without You - for the drum sound is brilliant and I would expect such a mix for a film in a cinema.
Whistle Test version of Exit really shows how hard Larry is playing - absolutely thumping that snare and floor tom, at the the expense of Edge's guitar being far too low and Bono's well up - although that added a lot more melodies you can hear that weren't on the original album version.
Later recordings around Vertigo era were more settled - snare not as bright. I thought Paris 2018 finally brought back some rawness into the mix, still keeping the punch of that 24" kick.
