LINER NOTES
A Celebration: Published by Blue Mountain Music.  Produced by Steve Lillywhite.
OTHER NOTES
I can hear some ask why is this included under "Other U2" when other compilations are relegated to the Various Artists Compilations section?  Well it's because the original U2 single is out of print, the track has never appeared on an U2 album, and this is a fairly easy way to obtain the song on CD.  A Celebration was a non-album single released in 1982. It reached number 47 on the UK charts.  In that sense it seems to be a weird choice to be included on this compilation of top 5 singles from the year 1982 - but there's no denying the success and recognition U2 have gained since that time.
RELATED RELEASES
  • A Celebration was released as a single on vinyl and contains the same version as this compilation.
