DVD 1 FLAWS :
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Until The End Of The World
>> There was a piece of audio missing from the original source.
>> The replacement is from a San Diego, CA Show... 1997.04.28
>> This was the best source to match audio.
>> It isn't perfect, but the song is complete.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
DVD 2 FLAWS :
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Wake Up Dead Man :
>> There was a piece of audio missing from the original source.
>> The replacement is from a Seattle IEM Source... 1997.12.12

"Closer to Stage" angle has Lens Flare / Digital Noise throughout DVD 2.
>> As a result, there are "flashing rectangles," but it isn't excessive.

"Closer to Stage" angle ends during Mysterious Ways.
>> . . . as the battery died . . .

AUDIO EDITING COMMENTS
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Editing by ops@U2.ST
Product : Adobe Soundbooth CS3

>> The original source for this editing was an Unknown Digital Generation (UDG)... Due to the massive cement structure that was
>> the Seattle Kingdome, there was a serious problem with Larry's kick-drum bouncing off the walls and getting re-recorded by the mics.
>> As a result, you couldn't really crank-up the recording without a seriously "muddy" sound and distortion.

>> Thankfully the recording was excellent (good mics)... and the editing process was simple... Pick a favorite song (New Year's Day)
>> and make it the one that all editing would be based upon. Steps to achieve the goal were written down, as we went along.
>> Once NYD was accepted by the team as "remastered" -- all steps were applied, equally, to the entire recording.

>> We hope the end result is to your satisfaction...

VIDEO EDITING COMMENTS
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Editing : ops@U2.ST
Product : Adobe Premiere CS3

Source : Closer to Center : U2 Street
Source : Closer to Stage : Anonymous Donation

>> The "Closer to Center" source was the one with the better color and is used as the baseline to match the other video's color.
>> This angle was converted by taking the 8mm Master Tapes and going directly to DVD (via RGB-V cable -- SP Mode).

>> The "Closer to Stage" source was a 2nd Gen VHS and was converted to DVD and then to MPEG2.
>> We are lucky to have this contribution, and THANK YOU to the filmer!!!

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Being a fan and posessing this gem is great...

It was hard work to get it remastered and very time consuming...
>> But we have a great 2-cam mix, from the Popmart Tour!!!

Enjoy! Share! Take Care!!!
