October 2005:

This version is the complete show compiled from FLACs directly from multiple Silvers. The set includes the Intro to the show before Zoo Station (Russian anthem and other stuff), the unedited ending to 'Trying to Throw Your Arms' (Dublin says, I will), the zoo confessionals after Pride and Intro to Desire (more Russian music), McPhisto calls the 'United Nations' at the end of Desire, as well as the Elvis bit continuing to play over the PA (Elvis is still in the building. Goodnight Dublin city) at the end of the show. Disc 1 and Disc 2 are also split without fades. This is an issue on some Silvers (notably RDS Zooropa 93) which split the seemless Bad -->Bullet on 2 different discs, and faded in and out over music.

Sound quality is exactly the same on all of the Silvers except 'Zooropa 93' which was used only for the confessions and George Bush rap (you can hear a jump in levels in d1t01 when it switches). I checked the levels in EAC and Audacity, and all of the boots have the same drop off, which makes it appear they could be mp3 sourced (but unless several separate silvers made in 1993 were mp3 sourced nearly impossible, if not entirely impossible). The drop off is due to the original source being post broadcast (the Westwood One feed) regardless of what the boots claim to be. There is a fade in to the Cofessionals (d2t07, its the fullest version available). Only crowd noise is lost due to the fade.

Silvers used:
Live From Dublin (Intro--second half of d1t01)
RDS Zooropa 93 (George Bush rap--beginning of d1t01, Zoo TV Confessionals and Intro music to Desire--d2t07)
Live Storm (everything else, including all of the U2 music)
