Mastered to Digital by JTT, December 2011

NOTE:
THE EARLIER CIRCULATING VERSION OF THIS SHOW HAD “LISTEN TO THE LION” INSERTED IN
BEFORE “A NEW KIND OF MAN”, THIS IS INCORRECT. I CHECKED THIS TAPE AND THE TRANSITION
FROM “SWEET THING > WHEN HEART IS OPEN” TO “A NEW KIND OF MAN” IS PERFECT AND FROM
“DWELLER ON THE THRESHOLD” INTO “LISTEN TO THE LION” INTO “BRIGHT SIDE OF THE ROAD”
IS ALSO PERFECT. TO MY KNOWLEDGE THIS TAPE HAS NOT CIRCULATED BEFORE AS A DIGITAL TRANSFER.

Disc One
01. INARTICULATE SPEECH OF THE HEART #2 > BABY PLEASE DON’T GO > GLORIA >
HERE COMES THE NIGHT > BROWN EYED GIRL
02. JACKIE WILSON SAID
03. IT’S ALL IN THE GAME > YOU KNOW WHAT THEY’RE WRITING ABOUT
04. HELP ME
05. NORTHERN MUSE (SOLID GROUND) > PURPLE HEATHER
06. VANLOSE STAIRWAY
07. SHE GIVES ME RELIGION
08. SPIRIT
09. CLEANING WINDOWS
10. SWEET THING > WHEN HEART IS OPEN

Disc Two
01. A NEW KIND OF MAN
02. TROUBADOURS
03. DWELLER ON THE THRESHOLD
04. LISTEN TO THE LION
05. BRIGHT SIDE OF THE ROAD
07. SUMMERTIME IN ENGLAND
07. A SENSE OF WONDER
08. SEND IN THE CLOWNS

notes: This show was recorded for the German TV show ‘Rockpalast’ for WDR and it’s well worth finding a copy of it to see Stipe’s blonde hair, some great cover songs and the hilarious moment when Stipe goes out into the crowd during ‘We Walk’ and pats a big bearded guy on the head.

Notes from Mat: Awhile back somebody gave me a bunch of old REM shows. Unfortunately they mostly didn’t include any text files or other information other than show dates. Also they tend to be low bit rates. I’m not 100% positive I have the correct date on this one as all info I found online lists a bunch of songs that aren’t included in my download. However I am definitely in the camp of any REM is good REM so I’m happy to share.

Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town: Missing (Recorder 2 source included)

Courtesy of taper ML, hereís what we believe is a massive upgrade of the very first show of 1985, as the band return to the road after two-and-a-half weeks off. This fresh transfer from MLís fine master tapes sounds light years ahead of circulating copies of the show.

ML taped from a sweet spot, ìthe first row of seats off the floor almost DFCî (Dead Fucking Center). The tape has that classic, appealing ë80s arena sound, clear, steady and with plenty of low end. Samples provided.

The set list lacks for raritiesónot surprising for the first show of a new legóbut still includes highlights from this period like ìJohnny Bye Bye,î the synth-lead ìReason to Believe,î ìRacing in the Streetî and an excellent ìAtlantic City.î

mjk5510 did identify a second source for the show, but it is so inferior as to be a distraction if it were used to patch gaps, so we have left those as is. We did decide to include “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” as a bonus track in the interest of making the night complete. Thanks to him for doing the prep work on this. And huge thanks to ML for reaching out and loaning us his terrific masters which he was keen to share with all of you.
