Background Information

This 1993 compilation of Blues songs was put together by Polygram TV and sold via Television commercials in UK. Discs were produced in the UK.

U2 and BB King contribute “When Love Comes to Town”. This is the version that can be heard on Rattle and Hum, or a longer version found on The Best of 1980-1990 but this is an edited version, the shortest of these three longer versions of the song. The song is edited with an earlier fade, and ends at 04:08, about 10 seconds shorter than the version on The Best of 1980-1990 and 8 seconds shorter than the version on Rattle and Hum.

A version of this CD was released in France the following year. This release has a different track listing, but includes the same title and cover. This French version does not include the U2 / BB King track.
