OTHER NOTES
This 1997 album was a project put together by Bob Dylan to pay tribute to the work of Jimmie Rodgers. The album was delayed several times, and had originally been scheduled for an early 1996 release but instead came out in mid-1997.

The track "Dreaming With Tears in My Eyes" is credited solely to Bono on the back of the release, but upon examination of the liner notes, you find that Larry Mullen also participated on percussion on this track, which was recorded in STS Studios in Dublin.
