OTHER NOTES
Rattle and Hum was the follow up to The Joshua Tree, which had been one of the most successful albums of the 1980s.  But Rattle and Hum was more than an album, it was a mismash of live material mixed with new studio songs.  It was a double vinyl LP.  It was a movie.  It was a book.  And to many it was an overload.

But the album was a success.  It went to the top of the charts around the world upon release.  It spawned four successful singles, all of which were backed by new b-sides.  The film played in theatres for weeks, and did quite respectable for itself.  Not a Hollywood blockbuster, but it did just fine.
