Wide Awake in America is a four-track extended play by Irish rock band U2. It was released on 20 May 1985 through Island Records. It combines two live performances of songs from the group's 1984 album The Unforgettable Fire with two B-sides from the era, which had previously been available only in the United Kingdom. Wide Awake in America was originally released only in North America and Japan but it charted in the UK as an import. It was re-released internationally in 1990. As U2 were completing the supporting tour for The Unforgettable Fire, they released the four-track EP Wide Awake in America. Comprised of two outtakes Three Sunrises, Love Comes Tumbling and two live cuts Bad and a phenomenal version of A Sort of Homecoming, the record may be aimed at the hardcore collector. Why did Wide Awake In America become an unpredicted cult success 'The reason was simple - the presence of a previously unavailable version of 'Bad'. Extended from the original vinyl incarnation on The Unforgettable Fire and replete with taped keyboard intro, this has come to be considered the definitive version of the song, clear-cut recorded evidence of the smouldering power that U2 could conjure up on-stage and which would make 'Bad' both a favourite with the fans, and, for quite some time, the centrepiece of. the band's live set.

Other albums by U2. U2 Comp. A powerful performance of Bad by U2 at a concert in already owned Wide Awake in America on vinyl, and I just purchased it on CD. The live performances of Bad and A Sort of Homecoming are excellent, and U2 fans will want to own this disc if only for live performances of those songs. However, it should be noted that the studio version of A Sort of Homecoming is about 90 seconds longer than the live version here. U2's Wide Awake In America is an oft-overlooked gem. The feel of this short album is a dreamy, early morning - as the title hints, an awakening. The first two songs are live cuts from concerts, but they are as clean as any regular album track, with very little of the stadium noise. Wide Awake in America is an EP by U2.
