'Red Rocks was freezing cold. There was steam coming out of our mouths. Edge was finding it hard to play guitar because his hands were frozen stiff.'
Bono

How I Came to U2
I was watching TV in 1985 and "Live at Red Rocks" came on. I was blown away by the bands sound. I went out, bought the cassette and U2 has been my #1 rock group since.

"Live is where we live."
It's been said by each member of the band at one point, but here is the earliest evidence -- U2's first live EP, released at the tail end of 1983 on the heels of the successful War tour, proved that U2 was a force to be reckoned with. Larry's thundering drums echo through "Gloria," the fiery opening track, all but daring the audience to ignore the band. Each member of the band has their moment to shine (including, yes, Edge's famous screw-up during "Party Girl", leading to Bono's playful "Guitar hero!" acclamation), but Adam Clayton truly shines on this record, playing with a swagger and confidence not previously highlighted on studio recordings. "Gloria" belongs to him -- his popping bass solo given a new prominence in this new remastered edition. Elsewhere, "Sunday Bloody Sunday" is given a subtle duck-and-punch thanks to his in-and-out basslines that emphasize dramatic moments (particularly in the coda, when the rest of the band wait for his crescendo note before crashing back into the chorus). Overall, this remaster allows a band that has always lived live to fully take flight.
