5.0 out of 5 stars Reckoning era REM broadcast, 25 July 2012
This review is from: Right On Target: 1984 Live Broadcast (Audio CD)
This album is a radio broadcast of a live show performed by the band as part of their 1984 tour in support of the Reckoning album, and as such features a tracklist that borrows heavily from their second album which had only been released a couple of months beforehand. There are notable exceptions however, the gig kicks off with a cover of The Velvet Underground's Pale Blue Eyes, a regular feature in their live shows at this time, a studio version of which had appeared as a b-side to So.Central Rain earlier that year. The setlist also includes a few songs from Murmur (such as the great version of Radio Free Europe)and early appearances for several songs that would later appear on Fables... and Life's Rich Pageant.
The sound quality here is superb throughout, captured in crystal clear FM stereo, and stands up very well next to other live recordings REM have released. Representing an amazing document of REM's live sound at this fascinating stage of their career, I'd recommend it to all fans of the band, an essential purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Early Radio Broadcast, 22 July 2012

This review is from: Right On Target: 1984 Live Broadcast (Audio CD)
Wow, what a turn up for the books this little beauty is. Appearing as if from nowhere this 1984 broadcast has suddenly turned up without warning and is all you could hope it to be.
G-r-e-a-t sound (far better than the Green broadcast cd that emerged last year - clear, focused and consistent), containing a nice mix from albums 1 - 3, plus Chronic Town, and some choice covers, this is the real sound of REM at the dawn of their success, doing what they were always doomed to do best - play live.

A Fabulous addition to my REM collection , well worth picking up.
