Remaster Notes:
Show had a lot of dropouts. Signal would drop and the scanner squelch would kick in, giving a thud of a dropout. I tried my best to repair/cut these out, but some were long. Did some basic remaster stuff. Broke out my scanner EQ curve (derived from EQ fingerprint comparisons between IEM receiver vs scanner), some basic exciters/reverb/etc. Nothing to extravagent with the remaster. First song is kind of a mess, there was no fixing that. Enjoy some click. Taper was dialing in frequency, eventually settled on a solid band mix.

"One Stop Shopping" or "Popmuzic"?

I received this on a trade and the trader said it was a copy of "One Stop Shopping".  However, an alternative cover is available for this night for a recording called "Popmuzic". I included both copies of cover art in the download just in case. The track alignment leads me to believe it is actually "Popmuzic".

The cover art for "One Stop Shopping" says this: "An incredibly strong performance by U2. Bono interacts very well with the audience (as usual).  This is an excellent sounding audience recording with just the right balance of vocals, guitar, drums, treble, and bass.  From time to time it has a 'distant' sound, but the music is incredibly clear.  This was transferred from DAT Master > CDR and the bass was then reduced.  There is one tiny skip between tracks 1/2 on disc 1 - otherwise it's a flawless recording”.

I finally got the chance to transfer a few tapes I picked up during my last trip to the JEMS archive a couple of months ago.

This is the second night in Oakland Stadium; only the first night is currently on the tracker. This master is very unlikely to have ever circulated and the quality is very good though it suffers, like many Popmart shows, from what is to my ears excessive audience noise, especially the persistent whistler. But if you take that away it is close and clear and fairly powerful. Samples provided.

Listening to the show again reminds me of what an odd point this was in U2's career. I don't love these shows, in part because I didn't love Pop. Not trying to start a debate here, but I see "Miami" (and its ATYCLB counterpart "New York") as one of the least compelling songs of the modern U2 era and pure filler on the albums. Even their very titles suggest they are mere impressions and not songs. That being said, there's no debating the appeal of "Gone," "Please" and "Staring at the Sun." I'd also add that I would love to see U2 bring back "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me" which works spectacularly in concert.
