DVD 1 & 2 : Santiago - February 11th, 1998

Realised on 2005-02-01.
The best popmart show maybe, with lots of emotion with apparition of the Mothers of the disappeared on the same song !
For the sound stream, i've used the one coming from 2nd gen vhs from Justin ( because after comparating them all, it's still the best one ) , except for the end of Where The Streets Have no name because it was not broadcasted on the Justin version, so I've added the sound of the chilean TVN master (we can hear a change of sound, but it's not really a problem). It's an ac3 source, don't be angry, it's the best you've ever heard ;-)
Still the best U2 bootleg on dvd, even after the famous Buenos Aires from Vertigo Tour in my opinion ! The betacam master has an absolutly perfect image quality, and TVN master has a less but still very very good image quality !
I want to thanx Asterix9500 for giving me the chilean TVN master version, & Zbych for autorisation to share the rare but simply perfect Betacam master version !!

Many versions of this dvd are circulating:

* the most current is the "Justin " version, coming from a 2nd generation vhs, with a not very good image but a great great sound quality ("virtually flawless", like Justin said, and he is right !!!) ! The broadcast is almost complete, only missing the end of Where The Streets Have No Name.

* a 1st generation (said master but I believe it's at best 1st gen) coming on 1 dvd, better image than Justin version, but still not perfect, brighntess & contrast are not optimal. The broadcast is complete.

* a betacam master version (Betacam Master Tapes > DVD [Pre-Broadcast - "Please" from MasterTV VHS ] ) , coming on 2 dvd, with a very good sound and ... an absolutely perfect image quality ! this one is the best dvd bootleg I've ever seen but its problem is : it's really not complete ! Please is missing (even if a bad version from 1st gen (master ?? so a bad master .. ) is added on the original dvd, it's not a really good version) , and Introduction, end of Where The Streets Have No Name, intermission between With or without You & Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me , and outroduction are missing too .... that's why I've worked on it ;)

* and an other 2 dvd version, coming from master Chilean TVN channel :
video : master recorded with betamax sony
audio : master recorded with minidisc JVC
are the original from TVN ( tvn = television nacional de chile)
edited and mixed by Rodrigo Masferrer and Oliver Serrano ;
not as good as the betacam master version , but it's the best COMPLETE version circulating, no one of the other is as long as this one !

That's why I've decided to work on this to make an ideal DVD with all these versions, to make 1 optimal version (until we have a Betacam master COMPLETE version to be released ... if it exists)

SO, most of the video is coming from the betacam master version, except Introduction / Please / End of Where The Streets Have No Name & beggining of Lemon / Intermission between With or without You & Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me / end (the last seconds) which are coming from the Chilean TVN master. The difference is clear, so you'll see when the version changes, but I hope you won't be too denied ...
