OTHER NOTES
In 1993, members of REM had plans to perform at MTV's Inaugeral Ball for President Bill Clinton (note this release labels it as 1992).  Only part of REM was available for the performance and upon learning Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen were available, they were approached to play, and a decision was made to perform U2's "One".  The collaboration has graced several hard to find compilations over the years.  The compilation, Amazing Grace was probably the easiest of these to find. The collaborative group took the name "Automatic Baby" taking a portion of the name from each of the individual band's last releases, Automatic for the People, and Achtung Baby.

This compilation was put together for Childline which is an organization in the UK who helps youngsters at risk.

RELATED RELEASES

  • Michael Stipe participated in the What's Goin' On? single which Bono organized and participates in.
