    Some of us don't give a shit about compressed streams. Crazy huh? Further, I have multiple copies of this album already and yeah, I can listen to it anywhere at any time, but that doesn't mean everyone does, can, or prefers to. There's multiple reasons I could go on about wanting downloadable files, but I'm not going to bother here other than to say would it wouldn't kill the label to offer up some downloads as a lot of new releases do.

    Got my Blue and Pinkerton colored copies a few days ago and just getting around to checking them out. Not impressed with these at all. Flimsy covers, paper sleeves, surface noise galore, and no download codes in this day and age is just stupid. Total cash-in but whatcha gonna do? Buy into it of course.

    Just got an email from udiscover that both Blue(blue) and Pinkerton (clear opaque) are on their way.
  4. You know, I don't have that one because it's not REM. I mean, it is...mostly...lol! It's kind of like picking up the Hindu Love Gods stuff or anything else outside of the core of REM: not on the top of my priority list, but definitely on the list. I have been eyeballing that one though. I should probably grab a copy before it gets hard to come by. I do have a copy of Documentary though. Second row from top, sixth one over.
  5. My copy arrived today. Sounds great, looks great!
  6. Oops...my bad. The grey cover..duh. Good catch.
  7. That one is called Pretty Persuasion. It's the Orlando FL 1989 broadcast. It's still pretty easy to come by... https://www.ebay.com/itm/R-E-M-Pretty-Persuasion-LIVE-04-30-89-Vinyl-LP-Lmt-Ed-of-500-SEALED-NEW/173343038104?hash=item285c0cda98:g:AeAAAOSwYaFWgAlb
  8. It's been awhile since I played it, but IIRC, it's not acoustic. A few tracks are that are supposed to be (LMR, You Are The Everything, etc) but the rest is electric. It's by far the best looking picture disc REM bootleg (bright and colorful, but the design is a bit wonky) and actually sounds half decent for a picture disc. There's silence between the tracks though and has a "you're in the room" sound as if you're at the 40 Watt or something (no idea where this was recorded) with a hundred other people. BUT the sound is clear and bright and not muffled at all. Worth the purchase!
  9. So...when Discogs started the slow process of killing off bootleg sales, I had a list made up of wants that I went through to finish off in a hurry knowing full well that it was going to be a bitch to get them by other means. The Drive pic disc was the last of my wants and they killed boots off before I could snag it! I eventually stumbled across one on ebay, which was odd, because I'd never seen one listed (and haven't since) and I check REM items on ebay constantly. And for fun, I thought I'd post this little gem as well. Another item I've not seen anywhere and can't find any information on either. An unplayable (it has no grooves) promo pic disc for Murmur.
  10. That may have been me. I have (I think?) pretty much every REM bootleg on vinyl that I'm aware of. I have a few others since I took this pic and a few bootleg 7"s as well. The only thing I'm itching to get my hands on is the Finest Lunchbox and I can't seem to find a complete set in decent shape and I've been looking for years.
  11. Huh. Well, after reading this, I had to bust out my two copies (I have a sealed and an open copy) and check the matrix on my open copy. Seems that I have at least one US copy and assume the other is as well because it says it was made in the USA anyway. Just gave it a spin, and it is a tad bit more veiled that I remember it being, but it's no slouch either. Now I want a German/EU copy to compare with. Hmmm...

    My guess it's completely sold out because everyone busts nuts over Pinkerton. I ordered a copy, but haven't gotten any emails about it being cancelled.
  13. Reminds me of L.A. Guns, but that's probably because I'm old AF.

Not a Kweller fan myself. I just want to get rid of the record. PM if you anyone needs a copy. I'll part with it at cost+ship.
