OTHER NOTES
This 1988 tribute album is a tribute to the works of Woody Guthrie and Huddie "Leadbelly" Ledbetter.  The album was compiled for the Smithsonian Institute, and the album proceeds went towards the purchase of "historical recorded music and archival treasures".  U2's contribution to this album is a cover of "Jesus Christ" and was recording during the Sun Sessions studios where several tracks on Rattle and Hum were also recorded.
