3CD SET FEATURING CLASSIC R.E.M. BROADCAST RECORDINGS AND INTERVIEW COLLECTION.

This 3 disc collection celebrates the music of REM across this lengthy time-span, and include two superb CDs containing radio broadcasts of concerts from 1984 and 1989, along with a third disc containing media interviews with the guys from various points across their career.

Superb quality throughout and eclectic track-lists make this boxed-set a delightful addition to every REM collection in existence.

It's now over 3 years since one of the USAs all time great bands called it a day after having spent 30 years together - excepting Bill Berrys earlier departure due to ill health - and despite the appearance of a few archive releases since then, to suggest fans of the Georgian combo miss them like mad would be understatement of the year.
