Sound Quality:
Excellent soundboard. Track 2 of Disc 1 suffers from substantial distortion and occasional dropouts. During Out of Control at 2:37, it seems as though someone held down the fastfoward button, then released it (the word "opinion"sounds like it's being hiccuped or `rapped'). Also during Love Rescue me at 1:34 the sound is lost completely for a brief instance (this 
error seems somewhat similar to what occurs at 2:37 during Out of Control). At any rate, the prevailing notion that the only error occurs during "Bullet the Blue Sky"--and that the rest of the recording is flawless is incorrect. I think these errors should be mentioned in the review since many fans could be mislead to think that the people they are trading with made errors while recording this show.

Comments:
This set captures the third night of The Point Depot shows in all it's splendor. Most notable on this bootleg are the soundboard recordings of "She's A Mystery To Me" (incorrectly labeled "Mystery Girl"), "All I Want Is You", and "11 O'Clock Tick Tock". The excellent version of "With Or Without You" interspersed with "Love Will Tear Us Apart" is not to be missed either! This is believed to be the only widely-available bootleg of this concert and is highly recommended to anyone who has the opportunity to obtain it. Tracks 6-8 performed with B.B. King. This is the original pressing on this label.
