CD 1 & 2 : Montpellier - July 18th, 1987
The performance of the band is good, Bono tried his very good french... one more time, With or without you is memorable, in France it's often this way. An interesting intro on Bullet the blue sky, an inspired version of The Unforgettable Fire and many other good moments.
Overall sound is "Good to Very Good audience", although several moments of the concert can be perfectly rated as "Very Good audience". Show was transferred by Yauckt from a second generation tape to CDR. He remastered the show, too. A bit of hiss still remains on the background, and occasional voices near the taper can be heard at some points. Anyway, clarity is more than good, but maybe recording is a bit thin. These are Yauckt's comments:

Coming from a second generation audio tape, i tried to take the best of this concert. Let's start by the minors :
Sound has often volume fluctuation. A hiss can be hear all long due to my attempt adding some clean to the recording. Sound is a bit distant, so sound without too many audience noise but a group of people can be heard (also the taper i think). I tried to normalize these peaks manually, reducing a lot the audience screaming. the sound is not very solid, but it doesn't really affect the listening pleasure. I took
a look at Justin Cook's or U2depot's page, it seems they have the same source as I have, but i don't have all their minors (fades everywhere and all that, except for the sound fluctuation that I tried to recover). I know there's another source of this concert available, but where?? So at this time, consider this as probably a pretty decent one.
