Sounds more like a *jam session* to me than an "unreleased live track" as the title would suggest, however i went ahead with the YT video title for the thread.

He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.

I remember hearing that a while ago. It's an interesting sound... reminds me of Holy Joe.

Sounds like a jam session indeed.

I find it very interesting because it shows Bono’s musical input with a guitar. If you listen closely, Edge is using the « Mysterious Ways » sound and is a bit low in the mix. Bono is playing the main riff when he doesn’t sing.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

Very interesting, I haven´t heard this before.  Seems they are tuning their guitars and then doing some improvised jamming
with Bono trying to "find some lyrics" for the song - using his "Bono gibberish talk" has he often does when doing demos  :D

Thank you

im positive this was just some "soundcheck bootleg" recording thats been around forever but not necessarily "noticed" as anything special.

case in point

have you heard this?

Yeah, I agree with THRILLHO.

Many "bootlegs" or "demos" sometimes go unnoticed.
Even by many fans (like me).

We probably have all of their "demos/outtakes" (which have been released)
 including the one posted by Magnificence in that video.
It´s just we don´t pay too much attention to them,  sometimes due to the large selection
of U2 tracks we already have. LOL 

Stage Soundchecks are some times recorded by some fans just hanging out
watching the stage being built and prepared for the show.
I remember back in 2005 in Lisbon some friends of mine recorded the U2 soundchecks
in the stadium before the concerts.  They hold on to those tapes like if it was "gold". LMAO
They never gave me a copy !! 
DAMN IT ! 
Gimme... gimme... Gimme me a copy of those tapes !
 ;D AAAAHAHAHAHA !
