Bootlegs

My Mum's boyfriend Alan brought me a CD of U2 today, and not just any U2 CD, but an unauthorised live recording. Hehe, he knows how to get on my good side. The quality isn't spectacular, but it's still good, and it's interesting to see what U2 used to perform. This bootleg is obviously from 1981 or 1982 because of the tracklist - it's got stuff from Boy (1980) and October (1981), plus the 1980 single 11 O'clock Tick Tock, but nothing from War (1983), and it doesn't have the 1982 single A Celebration, so I'm inclined to think it's not from 1982. And it seems to either be from America or Australia. I'm not sure. I'm going to go to websites I know and check out the tour lists and setlists.

Anyhow, I'm very excited about all this.
