Soundchecks recorded at Vorst Nationaal, Brussels, BELGIUM, july 8th 1987
This is a "SPEED-CORRECTED" version of the Brussels 87 soundchecks that was shared a few days earlier on u2torrents. Thanks to the original taper.
I loved hearing UF & streets soundchecked, especially Streets, but the speed was obviously too high. So I tried to correct that as well as I could with Audacity, hope everything's fine. It was hard to assess the right speed, it's still quite fast but it sounds right for a recording from the Joshua Tree era.
This is all that was corrected, my skills are limited. Anyway, the sound was and is still excellent.

(original) FLAC files > xAct (MAC app) > AIFF > Audacity > Speed correction > new tracking > WAV output > back to xAct > FLAC & MD5

Original information of the raw recording (from original seeder @ u2torrents) :
This is a very low generation, crisp sounding, and clear soundcheck. The Unforgettable Fire and Where the Streets Have No Name are pretty much complete and there are definitely parts of other songs.

Itís not that long, but itís pretty cool to hear (especially Streets with no vocal) and the sound quality is great
Audio : Good
