Sharebear's notes: A fun doubleheader of soundchecks from early in the Vertigo tour. After the first two San Diego shows, looks like they wanted to try and shake things up a bit. I remember being pretty suprised about shaking up the opener, which they haven't done since the 80s (somebody correct me?). Anyways, you can hear all the rehearsal organizing in all its detail here. The band was ready to roll early but Bono was AWOL, so Edge had the crew fire up Bono's vocal track from Sydney 1993 for Mysterious WAys. There was actually twenty minutes of dead air between MW#1 and the Warm-up, but I snipped that out. Luckily Bono shows up partway through MW#3, even dueting with himself. Some good quips and Bono lecturing during the rehearsal.
Night two was a more traditional soundcheck, some basic takes of songs and keying things in. Again, they used the Sydney track for Mysterious Ways. Both checks spread out nice and snug onto two CDs if you split the 4/1 check after the L&P tracks.
Please don't sell this recording in any way - no cash for blanks, 2:1s, or any other form of "getting paid for your time". Just share it freely.
Please do not attempt to remaster this recording and spread it around. There is little to no point of trying to compete with the original processing. If you need to re-eq it for your own listening pleasure, that's fine, just don't spread it around.
