U2 - An EP Mixture

The four track EP was only released in the USA in June 1985, but was available in the UK as an import. It entered the USA album charts for one week and then was withdrawn for being too “short” for the charts. It was reinstated in April 1987, as a cd and reached number 37. Even though it was an import in the UK it still reached the charts, and in the summer of 1985 reached the lofty position of 11. The title of the album is derived from a line in the song ‘Bad’.
