Brooklyn show on iTunes

Four tracks from the Brooklyn show have been posted on the iTunes Music Store! You can get the following for $3.96:

All Because of You
Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
I Will Follow
Vertigo

Awesome sound quality! You can find 'em here: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/M...reFront=143441

If nothing shows up, enable the shopping cart in your iTunes preferences, then click add to cart. From there, you can preview and buy each track.

This is the start of a very good thing...

Man, the whole band is truly in top-form on these. The DVD that was torrented recently is a very poor representation of this performance. Bono sounds very, very good.

Honestly, I am now worried about the future of free bootlegs.

BTW, based on the order and the fact that the audience is yelling HOLA!, I assume that this is the second take of Vertigo.

Two things I noticed:
(1) This is listed as an EP, which makes me wonder if they're going to do a material (CD) release.
(2) They have it listed under "alternative".

This is fabulous! This IS the start of something very good with iTunes and U2! Love it.

I don't think this will affect free boots and besides if they start doing this for thier concerts...I would def. pay for good quality version of it.

I'll gladly pay for this quality of bootleg

I also don't think this will have a huge affect on free bootlegs though.

With the recent lyrics/tabs crackdown, I am worried that because iTunes is releasing live tracks, they're going to want to shut down bootlegs.

I hope I'm just being paranoid.

It isnt a "bootleg" since it was profesionally recorded and they had all intentions of brodcasting it on TV and that is exactly when I expect the tour dates to be announced.....Friday *fingers crossed*

We told you!

Unfortunately, based on the times, the iTunes tracks don't have the explainations. SYCMIOYO is so much more powerful when you've got the story of his dad right in front of it...

This is very sad, U2s continued exclusive use of a download company. Why cant they peddle their wares on all download companies so all peoples, with money, can have access?

Yep That outside air really does something for Bono's voice. I don't think I've heard his voice crack at all throughout all four songs. Very strong, and clear. Everyone really needs to buy these four songs... very worth the four bucks, heh.

Well, no other digital download service has the power of Apple. By partnering with them (and making it exclusive), Apple is doing a lot for them. It's definitely a two-way street.

Don't worry though, I'm sure you'll get a hold of these soon enough, knowing these forums

I applaud Apple and U2 for this. Rock on, guys. I will totally buy these tracks....and in fact I just did! I cannot WAIT to have a copy of the concerts I go to next year! I'm getting shivers just anticipating it!

I think they'll crack down on bootlegs of stuff that is available on iTunes. I doubt they will crack down on stuff that isn't.

Well, he doesn't hit the "fake it" in SYCMIOYO like he would have many years ago, but we can chalk it up to emotion, right?

There seems to be very little crowd noise in the iTunes tracks (based on previews). I live off of crowd noise on live tracks. Is it there, just not in the bits that are previewed, or what?

Power of Apple? Itunes is only in what 10? 15 countries? Most of the planet cannot access it, including U2s motherland.

I know U2 are benefiting from this alliance but its really not equitable to provide access to some fans and exclude others.

/yet another Itunes rant

Ah, I just can't keep this stuff to myself.

If you don't have the ability to buy the songs, tune into this: http://66.54.81.31:8000 (you can connect using iTunes, Winamp, etc). I'll be looping all 4 songs for a while.

I honestly think 'fake it' isn't supposed to be sung without the cracking voice. It's intentional or it wouldn't be on the record. They recorded each song no doubt dozens of times. It sounds great. This is the best live performance of SYCMIOYO out there.

I just wish they had Miracle Drug on iTunes as well! Damn!

gorman: thanks for the full preview.

Well, based on ABOY and SYCMIOYO, the quality of these tracks are great. Still, I'm still hung up on the lack of crowd noise during the songs. That was part of the experience -- the very deliberate swell of the crowd noise at a couple points during SYCMIOYO seems kinda fake to me.

But, oh man, do they sound amazing or what?

Damn I wish I could download it. This is the perfect use of digital downloads, as they will never release concerts on CD's, however if they did I would be first in line to purchase them every time.

Itunes and live concerts recordings are the way of the future. Now I just have to wait!!!

When will ITunes be in Australia!!!!!
