It's available via torrent, Rob. I don't know of any bootleg downloading sites specific to REM.

There's a large fansite called Murmurs, and they might have some information or links over there.

If I went to an R.E.M. concert and unexpectedly saw Ed Ved and Michael Stipe perform Begin the Begin together I would die. And I would die smiling.

Forgive me if I've mentioned this before but after watching them live for the second time on thursday, I've once again realized that REM is extremely fucking close to being my #1 favorite band of all-time. It's like U2 and REM constantly keep fighting and stealing the top spot from the other.

That's how I felt for most of the '90s. Good times.

No, my first comment was referring to how I'm feeling right now after Accelerate. REM has raced back to the top of my list. When I said "same here" I meant in the 90s I felt the same way after Achtung and Automatic came out.

Oh yeah, I was at the Philly show.

The setlist was kind of "meh", but bringing out Eddie Vedder was pretty badass, and I don't even really like Eddie Vedder.

Some YouTube fun:

YouTube - REM Harbour Coat (Live, 1985)

Harborcoat from 1985...dig Stipe's platinum blonde look!


YouTube - U2 & REM - One

Automatic Baby, for those who haven't seen it


YouTube - REM 6-9-84 Passaic 13. Sitting Still

Sitting Still from 1984...Stipe has serious girl hair. This is actually one clip of a whole show from Passaic, New Jersey. Some very cool songs on here. Check the sidebar.

I have nothing but not so kind things to say about Stipe's dancing in that Harbour Coat video, but the song itself sounded great. Anyways, I want to play as well:

REM's first television appearance on Letterman in 1983. I don't know what's more awesome, Dave's hair, promoting an LP, how the whole band looks like kids, name dropping Hershel Walker, bands playing two songs on late night shows, Stipe hiding so he doesn't have to be interviewed, or So. Central Rain being so new that it hadn't been named yet.

YouTube - REM - Radio Free Europe

YouTube - REM - So. Central Rain

Both songs sound flippin' fantastic.

Great setlists. And this time they're not coming anywhere where I could see them. Too bad I got to see them on the Around the Sun tour, where the setlist was pretty underwhelming. Still, it was a very good gig.

Completely agree about Stipe's dancing in that video...but the song did sound fantastic.

I love that Letterman performance! A music professor of mine told me I should look it up, and during a rock history class I took with him, he actually talked about the So. Central Rain performance with Stipe hiding behind Peter Buck and the song not being named yet.

I've seen these before, and I never get tired of watching them.
