Background Information

In 1994, during some downtime from U2, both Larry Mullen and Adam Clayton worked on the “Flyer” album with Nanci Griffith. That album was released containing the same track which is found here on this promotional release, “On Grafton Street”. The version used on both the “Flyer” album and this promo are the same.

Adam performs bass on this track, Larry is on percussion and also remixes the track. Also appearing are another set of natives from Ireland, the Chieftains who provide instrumentals here as well.

This promo was sent to radio by Elektra at Christmastime with a mix of Christmasy songs.
