Anybody riled up and/or made misty-eyed by the recent R.E.M. tour in which the boys from Athens pulled out all sorts of oldies — this disc’s for you. A vintage German TV broadcast — from the Rockpalast program, source of many a coveted converted-from-P.A.L.-format VHS tape over the years — this captures ’em at an early peak, circa the Fables Of The Reconstruction album. There’s Michael Stipe, bleached blond hair (and newly-shorn locks) and black eyeliner, alternately solemn and sarcastic at the mic; Mike Mills and Pete Buck, still in their bouncing ping-pong balls mode; and Bill Berry, mono-browed and assured at his kit. Ah, the memories. With a setlist well-stuffed with R.E.M. classics and even more classic covers and so many classic momentts (such as Stipe pledging allegiance to the flag to intro “Little America”), how can you pass this up? This TV broadcast absolutely does justice to their natural charisma, their offhand sense humour and their undeniable rock ‘n’ roll prowess. After We Walk Michael says ‘So long’ thinking the show is over, but the band had other ideas, launching into ‘Paint It, Black’ leading to Michael signalling to the guys his surprise, before having to climb back on to the stage to perform the song.
