From For Love Or Money:
This infamous bootleg of the 'Achtung Baby' sessions. Unlike the majority of the numerous other CD pressings of this material, this was mastered directly from the DAT's that U2 produced as working tapes during the recording sessions. As such, the recording quality is outstanding. The titles I have used here match those found in the Salome "pseudo liner notes" (I'm not sure of the author of that document, but it can be found at several U2 WWW sites. Quite interesting.). Many of these songs are early versions of 'Achtung Baby' tracks, while others are unique and unreleased songs or musical "ideas". The material is somewhat repetitive (nine versions of Salome), but provides interesting insight into the development and evolution of the songs. I don't know of any bootlegged 'Achtung Baby' session material which does not appear on this recording. Earlier pressings have Tracks 9 and 10 on Disc 1 indexed together. There are no titles anywhere on the packaging. The back cover simply lists the length of each track. Discs 1 and 2 are listed as having only 11 tracks each.

From U2 Station:
This was the release that had been deemed "too hot" to ever be pressed. The complete three and half hours worth of material were now available as a triple compact disc set. Since these CD's were mastered from the original DAT recordings, there's no quality loss between the original working tapes and these CD's. Thus the sound quality is far superior to the LP's. The title (Salome) is believed to have been a working title used during the Achtung Baby sessions, but it's not clear which song it was referring to.
