"Trip Through Your Wires" - U2

Promotional Release

Track Listing:

Background Information

This promotional release was produced by Festival Records in Australia, and circulated only in Australia. This was a numbered release, and each copy was hand numbered in the bottom left hand corner of the back sleeve. Only 500 copies were pressed and officially numbered on the back cover, although there are reports of 300 unnumbered copies in circulation. This suggests only 800 copies exist in total. The songs on this release are the same versions as those found on the singles released to promote “The Joshua Tree” and this promotional item wasn’t released until after all three singles were released. The release is labeled as a “Radio Sampler-Not for Sale” on the front cover, and contains a picture of the band standing in front of the tree.
