R.E.M. Vinyl, CD & tapes by R.E.M. at Norman Records

Ah R.E.M. They started everything didn’t they? For younger viewers it’s sometimes easy to just remember them as the 'Shiny Happy People' and 'Everybody Hurts' miseries. But rewind to the beginning of the 1980s and they pretty much invented altern...read more »

R.E.M.
Monster (25th Anniversary Edition)

Originally released in 1994, at a time when the band decided to tour again after a live hiatus but had enjoyed their greatest commercial successes yet, Monster occupies an odd place in R.E.M.’s story. Often described as a “rock” album (ironic quote marks intended) and characterised by a rawer, scruffier guitar sound, this curious album gets a 25th anniversary re-issue courtesy of Craft. LP, 2xCD and 2xLP re-mastered versions are available, but the deluxe box-set version is the eye-catcher, featuring five CDs including demos, live shows and a special 2019 mix, on top of a Blu-Ray disc that includes the Road Movie film, plus music videos for all six of Monster’s singles.

In Time: The Best Of R.E.M. 1988-2003

In Time: The Best Of R.E.M. 1988-2003 covers the band’s most commercially successful period. It includes tracks from the popular albums Green, Out Of Time and Automatic For The People as well as the single Bad Day. One of the band’s biggest hits, Shiny Happy People, was left off the compilation presumably because everyone hates it. Reissue double LP on Concord.

R.E.M.
Dead Letter Office

R.E.M. in the early days were a great B sides band. They always ensured that each single came with a gaggle of excellent additional tracks. Dead Letter Office does the decent thing and round these up on one collection. From the sublime (their take on Pylon's 'Crazy') to ridiculous (laugh-a-long versions of Aerosmith's 'Toys in the Attic' and Roger Miller's 'King Of The Road' - it's all here.

The Best Of R.E.M. At The BBC

You'll have to be a pretty big R.E.M fan to wade through the various sessions and live performances on the big bumper CD box set that accompanies this release. So how about this truncated version on both LP and CD  - a briefer flit through the best bits of the band's performances over the years at 'Auntie' as Wogan used to call it.

R.E.M. At The BBC

More audio than you could ever need of R.E.M performing at the BBC. This follows the band from their legendary 1985 performance at Rock City (the first time many UK fans got a proper taste of Stipe & co) all the way through to later live performances, session tracks and most excitingly perhaps, a DVD of all their television performances.    

R.E.M.
MTV Unplugged 1991

R.E.M. stepped up to perform on MTV Unplugged twice: once in 1991, coinciding with the release of their first alt country record 'Out of Time', and again ten years later, around the time of 'Reveal'. These two performances show a stripped back, completely acoustic incarnation of an alt rock band that was often murky with their guitars and full of fuzz. The 1991 performance, now available on its very own vinyl release, shows the band in fine acoustic form, having just released their most countrified record yet and set to record the even folksier 'Automatic For the People'. Even the more rock 'n' roll entries to 'Out Of Time' are stripped back here, including "Radio Song", which is given bongo drum and unabashed organ. The newly acoustic "It's The End Of The World As We Know It" could do with some twang.

R.E.M.
MTV Unplugged 2001

R.E.M. stepped up to perform on MTV Unplugged twice: once in 1991, coinciding with the release of their first alt country record 'Out of Time', and again ten years later, around the time of 'Reveal'. These two performances show a stripped back, completely acoustic incarnation of an alt rock band that was often murky with their guitars and full of fuzz. The 2001 performance, now available on its very own vinyl release, includes performances of many a classic, including "Losing My Religion", as well as performances of old tracks that rarely got this kind of soft rock treatment -- "So. Central Rain" is given a particularly new vibe. Michael Stipe refers to a handful of his songs as "beautiful" and "real good", the ever modest rock star that he is.

R.E.M.
Automatic For The People (25th Anniversary Edition)

Outta the way people, certified classic coming through! Automatic For The People, unleashed twenty-five years ago, firmly established R.E.M. as a massive globe-straddling band, with hits including ‘Everybody Hurts’ and ‘Nightswimming’. Now here is an anniversary reissue to celebrate, ranging from a straight-up vinyl edition to a sprawling 3CD and Blu Ray collection with demos, a live show, and more besides.

R.E.M.
Out Of Time - 25th Anniversary Edition

Ah 'Out of Time'. The one with the hits on it. But also one of REM's bleaker albums. Like the preceding 'Green' it is a mix and match between upbeat pop '(err 'Shiny Happy People') and slower dirge-like composition that paved the way for their mid-career near masterpiece 'Automatic For the People'. Despite the odd stinker (what was 'Radio Song' all about?) 'Out Of Time' is a lovely shimmering album full of poetic grace. This re-issue comes complete with bonus 'demo' version of the album and B sides/outtakes etc.   

R.E.M.
Eponymous

New R.E.M. reissues are afoot, getting some of that early I.R.S. Records material back into circulation. Eponymous is a greatest hits compilation covering the band’s career up until the point of its release (1988). Also, several hit songs are presented in alternate versions that are otherwise hard to come across. Reissued by Universal.

R.E.M.
Life's Rich Pageant

New R.E.M. reissues are afoot, getting some of that early I.R.S. Records material back into circulation. Life’s Rich Pageant was the band’s fourth album, first released in 1986, when Stipe and co. were still young, hungry and indie. Includes their cover of The Clique’s song ‘Superman’. Reissued by Universal.

R.E.M.
Orlando Arena, Florida, April 30th, 1989

Orlando Arena, Florida, April 30th, 1989 captures R.E.M. in their Green period, a time when they straddled the fence between the underground and the mainstream. Thirteen tracks that the crowd go wild for, all pressed to clear (with black and green spots) vinyl in a limited edition of 349 copies by the East / West label.

R.E.M.
7IN - 83-88

R.E.M were once, of course, absolutely brilliant. Due to their haphazard last few years the youngsters these days just don't remember the good times. Well now you can pretend to have been there all along with this box set of the eleven singles they released between 1983 and 1988 featuring replicated original picture sleeve art. Put them separately in your collection and reminisce about Stipe's ever-changing '80's hair.

R.E.M.
Murmur

Murmur is the classic debut album. Sounding somewhat like the Byrds playing underwater with a singer who couldn't be bothered opening his mouth, the young Athens four piece proved that guitar music in the early '80s hadn't completely died a death. It's mysterious, catchy and completely unique. No record collection should be without it.

R.E.M.
Automatic For The People

Automatic For The People by REM was the album that catapulted the band into the mainstream - big time - after they teetered on the edge with their previous album, Out Of Time and the success of Shiny Happy People. It is a musical triumph and their most famous album. It contains their most famous hits such as Everybody Hurts, Man On The Moon and The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite.
