OTHER NOTES
Behind the Trapdoor was T-Bone Burnett's follow up to an earlier EP called simply, "Trapdoor".  The EP was released in 1984 and featured six tracks including the one co-written by Bono.  It's one of the earliest solo projects outside of the band by anyone in U2, being predated only by some of The Edge's solo work.
RELATED RELEASES
  • Bono again co-wrote a song on T-Bone Burnett's 1988 album, The Talking Animals.  This time he also participated on backing vocals to the song, "Purple Heart", and also co-produces the song.
