North and South of the River:  Written by Christy Moore, Bono and the Edge.  Produced by Christy Moore and Steve Lillywhite.  Bono and the Edge: Backing vocals.  Christy Moore pefroms with Bono and the Edge for the first and only time on "North & South of the River".  Traditional music meets rock'n'roll in their song which expresses hope for peace in Ireland.
Christy Moore, Bono and the Edge collaborated on writing the song "North and South of the River".  In 1995, Christy Moore recorded the song, and Bono and the Edge recorded backing vocals for the song.  This was released as a standalone single, and it is that version which appears on this collection.  U2 would later re-record the song, putting a techno twist on it, and releasing it on the b-side of Staring at the Sun.

The Celtic Heartbeat label was set up by U2's manager Paul McGuinness, along with partners Dave Kavanagh and Barbara Galavan.  The label was set up to collect the best of "authentic" Celtic music and bring it to the world.
