REM Fan Club christmas kit 2007

Anyone else here a fan club member?

I just have to ask - how bloody funny is 'Merry Xmas Everybody'??

Just for the uninitated - they have sent out a 2 track CD this year to fan club members. The first track is a cover called 'Merry Xmas Everybody' and a new (?) REM track called 'Magnetic North'.

Last year there was a live CD from a tribute show at the 40 Watt Club in Athens, GA and the year before was a DVD if I remember correctly??

What they should be doing is refunding anyone who purchased Reveal and/or Around the Sun.

I have the X-Mas thing from '99 or around then, has some live tracks from the Bridge School Benefit, maybe? It has Neil Young playing with them on Country Feedback, and then they all cover Young's Ambulance Blue.

Well that is a given - then again 'Around The Sun' did have 'The Outsiders'...

So a partial refund?

My package should be showing up any day now. "Magnetic North" is an outtake from the ATS sesions. I'm kind of looking forward to hearing it.

Well the calender has only 2 pages of photos this year, you get an REM Live magnet and a page of stickers along with the CD. Good kit.

I certainly wouldn't mind if the U2 fanclub gift was a CD with a Christmas song and an unreleased track from the HTDAAB sessions. It would sure beat the hell out of a live CD that I already own the DVD version of.

I love Around the Sun.

Anyone here have the R. E. M. Live in Dublin double CD? I have it, but I still haven't watched the DVD.

I have it. The DVD is good - those Around the Sun songs are better live than they have any right to be.

I didn't like Around the Sun when I first got it, but after I saw them live, it clicked with me.

Apparently it is. With Mike Mills on the vocals.

I disagree. I'm quite happy with the upcoming 2CD set (plus T-shirt). It sure beats the hell out of selling/bundling the CD version of which they've also released the DVD version of.

I have the DVD. I've watched it once so far -- it was quite good, but I prefer the Perfect Square Live DVD, from a couple years earlier, a summer concert outdoors in Germany. Beautiful footage.

Around the Sun's not bad. I don't listen to it often, but appreciate the songs when they show up on my iTunes.

And I don't care what anybody says, I love Reveal. One of my favorite albums of theirs. I love the whole Beach Boys vibe.

Speaking of idiotic statements....you just made one yourself there.

Around The Sun - Worst Joke Ever, Ascnet Of Man, Leaving New York, Aftermath - all brilliant

Reveal - Imiatition of Life, I've Been High, Reno, Beachball, I'l Take The Rain - all brilliant.

I love that cover by Oasis! Haven't heard the original though.

As for the topic, I was an REM fan club member in 2001 and remember getting a christmas cd that year too. No longer a member.
