I Can't Help Falling In Love Source: November 27, 1993. Sydney, Australia. Football Stadium. Sound Quality: Very good soundboard. Some others have said that there is something "muddy" about the sound which made them wonder what the heck they were they doing when they recorded this? Comments: Exactly the same as Backstage's ZOOMERANG DOWN UNDER, but without the video confessionals and some of Bono's speech before encore. A great show, but listen to it first to make sure you like the sound. "Lemon", "Dirty Day", "Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car" all incredible, as has been stated previously. This concert is pretty much a standard ZOO TV set. It is also the same concert which can be found on video as 'ZOO TV: Live in Sydney'. What is interesting about this recording is that although it is the same show as the video, the CD has not been edited between songs and contains the ZOO TV video confessionals. Content-wise, these CDs are the same as the pay-per-view special, which was broadcast live (via a tape-delay). However, this recording does not contain the two "skips"' as the pay-per-view broadcast and it is all in stereo unlike the pay-per-view (which was in mono for the first 30 minutes). This CD set was listed with two very polarized comments as to the nature of the CD. I was hence apprehensive in buying it, but I did anyway (directly from KTS, incidentally), and thought I would throw in my two cents worth. This is an excellent recording. This is the concert in its entirety, including the Zoo Confessionals, MacPhisto's comments, Bono's comments (in their entirety) after "The Fly", as well as the inclusion of "Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World". I have the video "Zoo TV Live From Sydney" for comparison, on audio tape as well, and I am certain that this CD is the whole concert. The clarity of the recording is excellent, with crisp distinction within the songs (drums, vocals, guitars, synthesizer/sequencer parts). The audience can be heard (clapping, cheering, etc.), but you cannot hear individuals talking with eachother. The only noticeable drawbacks are that the bass level is fairly low, and there is an error during Edge's second guitar solo on "Mysterious Ways" (the rift repeats an extra time, and then Bono's entry is cut off as though it were a "skip"). Otherwise, the album sounds flawless to me. This is the original pressing on this label.
