OTHER NOTES
Initially intended to be a North American and Japan only release, it was so successful as an import it managed to begin charting in the UK.  Over the years there has been numerous re-releases in other areas of the world including a wide release in 1989 as part of the Island Masters series.

Bad was recorded live in Birmingham, UK on November 11, 1984.  The other tracks also appeared on the Unforgettable Fire single.  The version of Love Comes Tumbling on the Wide Awake in America release doesn't have the false start that appears on that single.
