    Jeez, not only was 1987 a GREAT year for music, but September is going to be overwhelming with “new” music releases.

  2. Piotr says:

    I’m looking forward to this, but would have preferred to have a second disc of demos, much like Life’s Rich Pageant and Fables of the Reconstruction.

    • MT Knight says:

      I agree. Those two re-releases were great. Demos and outtakes are always preferable to live versions. Too bad they didn’t continue the trend . . .

  3. Yeah, AlanDistro, 1987 WAS a great year for music. I remember thinking that at the time. R.E.M. could’ve done some much more with these reissues. I agree with Piotr, demos would’ve been great. I would’ve liked to have B-sides & more McCabe’s tracks.
