"I have the family I always wanted; it gives me the freedom to do all the other things I always wanted. I've always been a bit of traveller and slept on other people's floors, and I think, in truth, if I hadn't found the family I have I would be much more selfish. I'm one of these people that needs a reason to come home, and I have one. I'm just very curious about what's round the corner, what's down the street, the wanderlust is there in me. That's in me in everything, it's musical curiosity, it's everything, it's intellectual curiosity, it's flirtation everything."
- Bono, 1997

The versions of A Sort Of Homecoming and Bad included in the Wide Awake In America EP sound like live recordings but they were actually recorded during two soundchecks of the Unforgettable Fire tour in Europe. The audience noise was mixed in afterwards.
