Best live version of If You Wear That Velvet Dress? @ 06:44 pm

xanthos:
I'm currently feelin: curious curious
I'm currently hearin: Radiohead - Idioteque

I really like If You Wear That Velvet Dress, and I like it even better on the Sarajevo bootleg, but Bono's voice is a bit sub-par during that concert.

What I want to know is what a really good live version is. Can you guys make any suggestions?

It sounds like she has the Miss Sarejevo bootleg. I've found that when I get mp3s, unless I go to a site that has full concerts, I very rarely know *which* concert the song is from.

I went through and quickly listened to that track on a couple of my favorite Popmart bootlegs and found a few really nice ones (although I just quickly listened to the beginning on these). These three concerts were all broadcast, so the bootlegs are great sounding. Bono's voice is definately *on* during these three:

12/3/97 - Mexico
1/31/98 Sao Paulo
2/11/98 - Santiago

I have If You Wear That Velvet Dress, live in Edmonton... but I'm not a big fan of it.

HOWEVER... I'm a huge fan of the original version of the song.

Coincidentally, yesterday afternoon I was playing the live version on my guitar... just plugged in my amp and wailed away. I was in bliss...

One of the boots I did a quic listen to is the Edmonton one, but as you said, it isn't a great version of that song.
