OTHER NOTES
Bono and the Edge wrote "Conversation on a Barstool" specifically for Marianne Faithfull, but outside of performing it live, she had not recorded a version of the song as of 1995.  Hazel O'Connor did however, titling the song "Conversation From a Barstool" on her 1995 release, "Private Wars".  The song was recorded in STS Studios in Dublin, with Paul Barrett who had worked extensively with U2 on various projects through the 1990s.

Despite a hauntingly beautiful voice, this album of O'Connor's was only released in Germany, and has never had a wider release.  It is very difficult to track down.  For more information on Hazel O'Connor please visit this unofficial site, produced by a fan who's helped me to compile information on this release.
