I still think its the band and whoever else might have a legal interest in the recording that needs to explicitly give permission to make public this unique recording.  General comments Bono has made about bootlegs, that we are all well aware of, notwithstanding.  So Iím making no judgement on this Aaron guy.

My problem was the statement that he paid a lot for it so he may not want to share it.  Or if it was given to him and the band was cool with him sharing it, he still might choose not to because it is ďhisĒ.  But it seems none of us really know the facts including singnomore so probably not fair to pass judgement based on what may or may not happen with the recording eventually.

My point was really that its unrealistic to create a post inviting people to discuss a tape they canít listen to and then expect them not to discuss their frustration that they canít listen to it.

No Iím happy for people to express a view - no intent from myself to close anything down.
My point for the original posting was about the recording - Iíve not heard the full thing nor do I expect to. I enjoyed the snippets I heard. I do see itís caused a bit of a storm so I can understand why there are alternative views.

Has Aaron put this full show out to the world yet, or is he still keeping it all for himself?

Aaron provided the full story on the most recent atu2 podcast. He was given the tape and is going to donate it to the U2 museum in Dublin. U2 contacted him and asked him not to release it meantime. They were interested in the tape and got a digital copy from the guy who recorded and who is still a musician in Dublin. Here's the podcast link here. Aaron is a great guy, a fan and collector since way back and a friend of mine and would release it if he could I am sure. I am equally sure he can't and shouldn't without U2's permission even if it is only as a courtesy to them in light of their request. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

This is exactly as it should be handled.  As I said before, it should not be released without U2ís permission.  They are the owners of the content on the tape and this is different than general bootlegs of current shows that are out there.
