AllMusic Review by

Although recorded on July 4, 1987, this bootleg from the Joshua Tree era wasn’t officially released until 2007, when U2 included a DVD of the performance in the remastered Joshua Tree box set. One year later, the audio version was released as a digital download. The 18-track set list spans the first decade of U2’s career, from the set-opening “I Will Follow” to a handful of the band's late-'80s hits. This isn't a full concert -- the group played a handful of cover songs that night, three of which ("Stand by Me," "C'mon Everybody," and "Help!") are absent from the remaster -- but it's certainly close, and Live from Paris is the only album apart from Rattle and Hum to document U2's acclaimed Joshua Tree tour.
