OUT OF CONTROL (a guide to U2 bootleg CD's) Version: Feb '92 About the listings (in order of appearance): CD TITLES: In most cases, this is obvious. In those instances where it is not, I have chosen what I felt is the most obvious possibility. Titles appear in all caps, and in alphabetical order. MANUFACTURER: Some bootleg labels have been around for years; others exist for a single CD. Sometimes more than one manufacturer uses the same label name. Some specialize in quality and original material; others in reprints. The entry "(no manufacturer listed)", is used when no label is identified. CATALOG #'S: Many bootlegs have been reprinted, sometimes in altered form. This catalog number should make it clear which pressing I'm referring to. TIMING: Total running time for each disc appears in parenthesis, eg.(64:15) TRACK LISTINGS: Song titles are listed in the order in which they are heard on the CD. If there is a discrepancy between what is heard and what is listed on the cover, it is noted under the comments section. SOURCE: Location and date of the recording. All recordings are of a live performance unless otherwise stated. SOUND QUALITY: This is in terms of bootleg quality, not commercial quality. The rating scale is as follows; excellent, very good, good, fair, and poor. A CD rated poor to fair, is difficult or unpleasant to listen to. Lastly, any questions, corrections, or additions are welcome. I NEED INFORMATION ON CD'S THAT ARE NOT LISTED HERE! If you have a disc that is not listed, then please e-mail me with the info, so that it may be added to future versions of the guide. Thanks!

"If you can not live together in here, then you can not live together out there, let me tell ya". "Slow Dancing" is introduced with, "we've never played this song before, so...".

Comments: "Gloria" is played despite not being listed on the cover. BB King appears on tracks 15-18. High energy performance by both the audience and U2. Bono, "Now that's what I call a positive riot!". MORE POLITICS Pop Tunes Rue De Cap D'Antibes 23 - 75019 Paris, France PT 315 (46:05)disc 1 (43:30)disc 2 (disc 1) 1. Where The Streets Have No Name 2.

Angel Of Harlem 8. When Love Comes To Town 9. Love Rescue Me 10. "40" Source: Point Theatre, Dublin, Ireland. January 1st, 1991. Sound Quality: Excellent to very good broadcast recording. Comments: BB King appears on tracks 7-9 on disc 2. STAR SPANGLED BANNER / BULLET THE BLUE SKY is missing (should be after track 1, disc 2) and the tape glitches from it are quite audible. The first disc is labled as including VAN DIEMEN'S LAND, but it is on the second disc. Disc one is indexed for 11 tracks but track 10 is ten seconds of the crowd and track 11 contains ALL I WANT IS YOU / BAD. At the very end of BAD the music "skips" very much the way a skip sounds on vinyl. MY HOMETOWN Golden Stars GSCD 1016 (79:20) 1. 11 O'Clock Tick Tock 2. I Will Follow 3. Seconds 4. MLK 5. The Unforgettable Fire 6. Wire 7. Sunday Bloody Sunday 8. A Sort Of Homecoming 9. The Cry/The Electric Co. 10. Bad 11. October/New Years Day 12. Pride (In The Name Of Love) 13. My Hometown 14. Out Of Control 15. Gloria Source: Croce Park, Dublin, Ireland. June 29th 1985. Sound Quality: Good audience recording. Comments: Interesting for its live version of "Wire", and also to hear U2 cover Springsteen's "My Hometown" for their own hometown crowd. U2 seem a little worn, or perhaps worried, during much of their performance. OUT OF CONTROL Sterling Radio Network SRN 1990-1 (56:17) 1. The Ocean 2. 11 O'Clock Tick Tock 3. Touch 4. An Cat Dubh/Into The Heart 5. Another Time, Another Place 6. The Cry/The Electric Co. 7. Things To Make And Do 8. Stories For Boys 9. Twilight 10. I Will Follow 11. Out Of Control 12. 11 O'Clock Tick Tock 13. The Ocean Source: The Paradise Theatre in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. March 6 1981. Sound Quality: This performance was originally recorded for WBCN-FM radio in Boston. It was then pressed as the Warner Brothers Music Show promo LP,"TWO SIDES LIVE". It was from a copy of the promo LP, that this CD was mastered. As such, vinyl pops and ticks can be heard. There is also a skip that repeats about four times during "Things To Make And Do". Despite the vinyl source, this is still an excellent soundboard recording. Comments: Brilliant early performance that captures most of the first album live. "Another Time, Another Place" is played, despite not being listed on the cover. Unfortunately, this cd is not indexed, making it impossible to quickly jump from track to track. PRESIDENT Papillon Records CD 002 (75:39) 1. Twilight 2. Two Hearts Beat As One 3. Sunday Bloody Sunday 4. An Cat Dubh 5. Into The Heart 6. I Threw A Brick Through A Window 7. A Day Without Me 8.

Surrender 19. The Cry/The Electric Co. Source: 1983 USA War Tour (cover says 84'). These songs are probably from various dates on the tour. Sound Quality: Excellent soundboard recording. Unfortunately this cd was mastered from vinyl (probably a two record set). As such, pops and ticks can be heard. Comments: Standard U2 live. Interesting only for the songs U2 doesn't play live that often; "Two Hearts", "Rejoice", and "I Fall Down". ROCK & ROLL STOP THE TRAFFIC (no manufacturer listed) U28788-2 (72:07) 1.

A high energy performance from U2, as well as the crowd.
