||I am going to try another old concert for upload...and I hope that if anyone knows something more definitive about this one than I do, that they will continue to be "kind" in their comments.
This concert was sent to me as "Tullamore 2/3/80"...however, the reference materials available to me indicate that there is some confusion as to the exact details of date and venue...for example, one version of cover art which might be applicable shows "U2 Tullamore Garden Of Remembrance 2nd March '80"..and includes Out of Control as a 16th track....and U2Live shows two possible sources for this concert, "February, 1980 Tullamoore, Bridge House"...and a different listing for "February 1980, Tullermeny Garden of Eden Club"...there also is a cover art version showing 14 tracks, omitting this disc's track 7 "Another Day".
The quality of this show is B or so...but at least it clearly is lossless.
The set list is:
1. Silver Lining
2. Speed of Life
3. The Magic Carpet
4. Stories for Boys
6. Another Time, Another Place
7. Another Day
8. The Dream is Over
9. Pete the Chop
10. Cartoon World
11. Jack in the Box
12. Shadows and Tall Trees
13. A Day Without Me
and one version of the cover art shows Out of Control as being track 16, which to repeat, is not here, and not listed in Pimm's set list.
Possibly the text from the abovereferenced cover art would be reliable:
"This show was in 'The Garden of Eden', Tullamore, Co. Offaly, Ireland on Sun. 2nd March 1980.
This gig in Tullamore have never been logged correctly, so here it is.
U2 played Tullamore, Co. Offaly in the midlands of Ireland on Sun 2nd March 1980. This was one of the first times U2 played outside of the big cities (Dublin, Cork, etc) and most of the locals were down the pub or in 'The Bridge House' dancing to 'Big Tom'. There were only about 20 people in the hall.
The hall was called 'The Garden of Eden' -- its since been pulled down and a block of apartments built there. I'm from Tullamore and I lived there at that time.
The problem with logging the show was that some reporter from NME or Melody Maker in England was with U2 that week, and reported the gig as being in "Tullyermeny' or somewhere like that, so that's where the confusion occurs.
As I said, there was only about 20 people there. What we lacked in numbers we made up for in volume. My lasting impression of the gig was the presence of Bono -- even then he was the centre of attention.
The gig was recorded at the time on a tape deck. Some copies were given to friends from time to time, and so BAD boots of the gig have appeared.
This is from the original tape it's now been cleaned up, and it's on CD. The quality is very good for an audience tape.
I'm not 100% sure about the titles to the songs, but I've given it my best shot.
I've called this CD 'Garden of Remembrance' - because it was in 'The Garden of Eden' and 23 years is a long time to remember back..."
So, if anyone can clarify this, it would be great...I regret to say I was not following U2 in 1980, I have yet to visit Ireland, so let us consider this as fodder for evaluation.
