OTHER NOTES
When Love Comes to Town was the third single released from Rattle and Hum. The version released on some versions of the single was an edit of the version which appears on Rattle and Hum which was 4:15 in length. The song also appeared on the Best of 1980-1990 as well which was slightly longer (4:18) than the Rattle and Hum version, and featured a slightly longer performance by BB King.

Dancing Barefoot, a cover of an old Patti Smith tune, appeared in multiple versions throughtout U2's career.  The version on the 12" single, the 5" CD, and the cassette was an edited version of the song.  The full length version appeared on the 7" single, the US 3" CD, and the Best of 1980-1990 Bsides disc.

To make the issue that much clearer, both of the remixes appearing on this single also appear in a different length on the When Love Comes to Town promo 12" single, where the Live from the Kingdom Mix is 7:46 instead of 7:28, and the God Part II Mix is 6:50 instead of 4:46.  These longer versions also appeared on the 3D Dance Mixes promo released in 1989.
