Comments:

First of all, this is a pretty nice recording, which sounds a lot better if you EQ it (turn up the treble), but one thing to note is that the taper seems to have been a little nervous, because when the audience gets loud, it sounds like he/she turns down the recording level.  It’s not a huge deal though. This was one of Francesco Donadel’s remasters, supposedly transferred from a first generation cassette.  I don’t know what he did to it exactly but I remember an old version of this I had being a bit rough on the high end (clipping I think), and I think he may have done something about that, but I’m not sure.  What he didn’t do, however, is fix the speed, so I did this, as it was off by about the same amount as most other shows that play too fast.

On this night, U2 performed three Bob Dylan songs, which sounds like a lot except that two of them were done with Bob Dylan himself.  During “Knockin’” Bono mentions coming back and seeing a thousand more bands in the streets, I think this might be referring to the video shoot for Streets, done in LA, but I am not sure. Bono says “You know I usually make up my own words to Bob Dylan songs; he says he doesn’t mind.” Bob says “Hey I do it too.”

18. People Get Ready
19. 40

Notes : at the start of each tape flip, there are some mic issues with some channel switching
and cutting. Best place to split this up is at New Years Day, as with that tape change, it seems
taper went to slighly inferior tape type (inferred from more hiss) and dropped the levels a bit

When asked about what deck used, back in 1992, she had forgotten when she bought her D3 that year,
and she thought she bought it for the ft.worth shows so this show as well as her early masters on
this tour were done with regular walkman with external mic. But again, even 15 years ago, the taper
herself couldnt remember the equipment. Minerva was not a technie, more just into the shows and
getting them taped however.
