Widely considered to be one of the best albums of the 90s, 1992’s Automatic For The People features R.E.M.’s iconic hit singles “Nightswimming,” “Man on the Moon” and “Everybody Hurts.” Includes a brand new remaster of the original album on CD 1, remastered from original analogue tapes by Stephen Marcussen under the direction of original Producer Scott Litt. CD 2 features live tracks recorded at the band’s 1992 show at The 40 Watt Club in Athens, the year of Automatic For The People’s original release. This was the only concert that R.E.M. performed that year. The highly sort-after & acclaimed recording is remixed from the original multi-tracks by John Keane.
R.E.M. will mark the 25th anniversary of their widely successful eighth studio album, Automatic for the People, with a deluxe reissue. It’s the latest archival release from R.E.M., who previously served up anniversary reissues for the seven albums put out prior to Automatic, including last year’s repacking of Out of Time.
