5.0 out of 5 stars Piece of the past Sept. 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
Nice to see this US U2 single still in print. This is what the maxi-CD format is meant for: extra material that the fans want plus a single version of a song (Please).
The sound quality on the live tracks is excellent as expected, and it doesn't sound like they doctored the sound too much, either.
It's a crying shame that the US singles market has all but disappeared save for the trendiest R&B and/or pop songs out there. The material on this single was available as an import titled Pop Heart, and there was a second single available for Please as well. (Funny how the European market is still able to maintain a singles scene where every song gets 2 discs that are both short and overpriced.)
The songs here are a very good representation of the POP live sound. It appears that U2 has abandoned any pattern of releasing new singles in America, leaving us to hunt down expensive imports that often split material into separate discs or even repeat material we already have. U2 has always been a solid singles band and there are plenty of oddities out there from these releases: b-sides, live tracks, and remixes. The Please single here represents one of the best jobs they did when it came to culling material from separate import release for the American market. Highly recommended for even the casual U2 fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best U2 Singles to Own March 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is not exactly the version I own as mine is called "Popheart", but consists of basically the same songs minus the studio version of "Please".
It is the live songs on this CD that make it stand out. The inclusion of a live version of "Where the Streets Have No Name", which has never been done before, and even "Please" which is perhaps the best song from POP in the first place is just great.
What often impresses me about U2 is there ability to take great songs from the studio recordings and make them greater live. I find it hard to believe that U2 could improve much on the songs included here from the original recordings, but "Please" could not sound much better than it does here (except maybe as performed on the last leg of the Elevation tour) and The Joshua Tree tracks have always been spectacular live. Get this single while you can!

5.0 out of 5 stars a must have July 12 2001
Format:Audio CD
I would even recommend buying this over Pop itself. The version of Please is superior to the one on the album.
Please was the best live track from the Pop era. It builds in intensity to the final guitar solo and one of the highlights of the Popmart show was when when Bono finished of the song with falsetto vocals leading right into the keyboard intro to their best, most uplifting live song, Where the Streets Have No Name. This is what you get on the first half of this live EP.
With or Without You is arguably U2's best track and is an anthemic, emotional live killer. The EP ends with the other standout live song from Pop, Staring at the Sun, performed with just Bono and Edge on acoustic guitar.
These are two old classics mixed seemlessly with the new ones. A must have EP that sends the really powerful message of GO TO SEE U2 LIVE!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great live C.D. Dec 21 2000
Format:Audio CD
Having been to see U2 on their Popmart tour, i have fond memories. This is just a must have if love live u2 music and hearing this mini album brought those songs right back to me. While i cant say that Please is one of my favorite u2 songs, the other tracks are just stunning. The classic Streets and with or without you are always sensational live, but the concert version of Staring at the sun is masterfull. I must comment on the recordings of tracks 3 and 4 were at times beginning to struggle with the mixing of sound levels of the various elements in these songs. While not overwhelming obvious, i found it to be slightly annoying and i mean slightly. But that aside its still an enthralling c.d..

4.0 out of 5 stars Live from Rotterdam! Jan. 4 2001
By jgc
Format:Audio CD
[T]his incredible bargain of a CD puts "Please" right into the pantheon of great live U2 numbers, and that song's segue into "Where the Streets Have No Name" may be the group at its most stirring -- gorgeous. The acoustic "Staring at the Sun" is also very fine, looser than the version on POP. The only mistake is the live "With or Without You," imported from a different concert (and a different continent) -- anthemic in the worst sense. The single-edit of "Please," by the way, differs from the POP original mostly in its ghostly new string arrangement.

5.0 out of 5 stars U2's Taste of POP Rocks! July 26 1998
Format:Audio CD
This cd magically mixes the old and new and proves once again why U2 live is the best! If you miss Popmart or "missed" it altogether this is an excellent taste of the feast U2 served on the road night after night. The live version of Please is a passionate performance not to be missed! And the versions of Where the Streets Have No Name and With or Without You rock! The memories from the past and hopes for the future entwine with the stirring closer, Staring at the Sun. A beautiful ending to a fabulous cd! Absolutely mindblowing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Live recordings really shine June 21 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD-single shines! not just the soul stirring renditions of Please (studio and Live) but the real star of this CD single is the Live recording from Rotterdam of "Where the Streets Have No Name" to my knowledge this is the first produced release of this tune done live. when listening to it make sure to pay special attention to The Edge's guitar work. it is brilliant and almost steals the tune away from Bono's forceful (if slightly altered) lyrics. Also listen for the new bass line. For any true U2 fan this is a MUST BUY

4.0 out of 5 stars Can they get any better?
"Please" is one of the best songs of Pop, if not the best. It bring a connection of the "old school" political U2 with the "new techno" U2. Read more
