Disc 1 & 2 : Melbourne, October 7th, 1989

Taper's location : Second row balcony behind the stage between Bono and The Edge.
This is the second of the treasures boyacrobat has generously made available to our community. These have been in his sole possession all of these past 17 years, have NEVER been circulated to ANYONE! He indicates that all of the Lovetown shows he recorded involved use of a Toshiba recording device with a stereo line in t shape looking clip-on microphone. He did testing prior at band rehearsals and local gigs to find the optimal results using stockings, and wrapped around mics which proved most effective for this set-up. CD1 starts with the beginning strains of Where the Streets Have No Name, finishing with All I Want Is You. CD2 fades in with the crowd and Bono's speech, then People Get Ready and onwards. During People Get Ready, boyacrobat got bumped and had to restart, losing five or six seconds (at 3:33). At 6:38 the master tape jammed, creasing the tape and leaving its footprints on record for eternity.

He indicates that the October 8, 1989 show is better than this show, and that the October 12, 1989 show is even better than that.
The music here has not been "cleaned" in any way, what was recorded is what you get. It is requested that if anyone does any remastering, creates a matrix with other available versions, etc, that they kindly send boyacrobat a copy of their work.
