REM To Release Re-Mastered Version Of 'Document' Plus Unreleased Concert Footage As 2CD Album

Alternative rock icons R.E.M have announced that they’ll be releasing a 2CD & Digital album featuring a re-mastered version of their seminal 1987 album ‘Document’, as well as a previously unreleased concert performance, on September 24th, to celebrate 25 years since ‘Document’s’ release.

The brand new edition features the digitally remastered original album, plus a previously unreleased 1987 concert from R.E.M.’s ‘Work’ tour. The commemorative release also adds new liner notes by journalist David Daley, with the 2CD package presented in a lift-top box with four postcards. On the same date, the remastered original album will be reissued by Mobile Fidelity on 180-gram vinyl in faithfully replicated LP packaging.

‘Document’ - the band’s fifth studio album - was recorded by vocalist Michael Stipe, guitarist Peter Buck, bassist Mike Mills, and drummer Bill Berry at Nashville’s Sound Emporium. The first of several R.E.M. albums to be co-produced by the band and Scott Litt, ‘Document’ was also the band’s first to go platinum and includes the hit singles ‘Finest Worksong,’ ‘Its the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine),’ and ‘The One I Love,’ R.E.M.’s first Top 20 on the UK singles chart.
