Background Information

This is a promotional CDR that was issued to radio stations to promote the album “African Spirit” by the Soweto Gospel Choir. The CDR was issued in an empty jewel case. The version of “One” included on the album is the same that is present on this sampler CD.

During the 46664 concert, the Soweto Gospel Choir performed with Bono and the Edge on their performance of “One”. That performance was released, along with the performance by Bono and the Edge on “Unchained Melody” which followed directly from “One”. The performance was released on the compilation concert DVD and CD, specifically on “46664 Disc 3: Amandla”.

It was from that performance that the version of “One” included on this disc, “African Spirit” was taken. It is the same concert performance from November 29, 2003, and the only difference is that “Unchained Melody” has been edited out of the finale of the track, and the song now ends at the finish of “One”. Bono’s dedication to his friend Portia at the start of the song is also cut out of this edit.
