Lovetown Soundboards @ 05:28 pm

u2lynne:
Does anyone know how it happened that there are all those soundboards from around Christmas in 1989? The concerts from the 26th, 27th, 30th, and 31rst are all soundboards. How was it that someone was able to record all four of those shows from the soundboard? (Or just what did happen?)

These shows were all broadcast on the radio throughout Europe and the US.

Ah, I was wondering if that was the case. Usually though, FLOM will list them as broadcasts, not soundboards which is why I was wondering.

They might be soundboards. I don't know. I can't really tell. They are some of the best if not the best U2 recordings out there.

All four of them? Really? Wow! I knew about 12/31 being broadcast, but not the others. That is very cool. I wish we had a video of one of those shows, though. I think I read somewhere that they had originally intended to show one of the shows on TV but it fell through.

I could of sworn I read that all the shows were broadcast over in Europe (at least). The band sent out a nifty coverslip for cassette tapes...They knew people would be taping the shows. ;-)

Only the last show was actually aired on the radio, tho they could have been taping the previous 3 nights to get the 4th night perfect. I have all 4 myself and they all so sound perfect so the recordings most probably got leaked out.

I still have my mum's original cassette recording from that night.
Yes Hotpress issued these little cassette cards for the event, the band endorsed this and encouraged fans to tape the show. Many do believe it was the birth of ZOOTV which Bono didn't dissmiss in interviews in the early 90's.

Yeah! I have an issue of HP that had a cut-it-out sleeve on the back cover. I cut it out, and I have absolutely no clue where it is now. =(
