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.

8/10 Customer review, 11th July 2016

Dead Letter Office is a housecleaning effort from R.E.M.'s days on IRS records. Several of the tracks reveal a goofy sense of humour that doesn't show itself on their "proper" albums. Two examples are "Voice of Harold," which features the backing track from "7 Chinese Brothers" as singer Michael Stipe reads a studio promotional flyer, and a cover of the Roger Miller country staple "King of the Road." The band acknowledges its considerable debt to the Velvet Underground by covering no less than three songs that are among the best performances here.
