OTHER NOTES
Larry went on a solo jaunt in 1994, and moved to the USA.  He took that time to work on several projects, including this album by Emmylou Harris.  This album was produced by longtime U2 producer Daniel Lanois, and it was Daniel's involvement which brought Larry Mullen to the project.  Also of note, is that Sam O'Sullivan, Larry's studio tech is also credited on the song "Wrecking Ball".

This album was an experimental one for Harris, one that many of her fans didn't like it as it wasn't as "country" as some of her other works. If you are a fan of Lanois, this is an album to get as his influence over the album is definitely felt throughout as the main musical collaborator and producer. It is one of my favorite albums, great for those quiet moments at night, and I'm thankful Larry Mullen's participation led me to this one.
