"WIDE AWAKE IN AMERICA"

This four track vinyl EP was released only in America in June 1985.   The title came from a line in "Bad". Though the two live cuts had been recorded in England and not in America.  It entered the US album charts for just one week before being removed as its length was considered too short.  It was, however, reinstated in April 1987 when the CD version reached number 37. 

Tracklisting: Lyrics
1. Bad (Live) (8:02)
2. A Sort Of Homecoming (Live) (4:05)
3. The Three Sunrises (3:50)
4. Love Comes Tumbling (4:45)
