R.E.M - Fables of the Resconstruction gets a re-do!

A classic disc gets a nice repackage and re-issue.

In honor of the 25th anniversary of the release of R.E.M.'s third album, Fables of the Reconstruction, MOG is now streaming the entire 2-CD reissue exclusively on their site one week prior to its July 13th release date.

The new edition features the digitally remastered original album, plus 14 previously unreleased demo recordings, cut prior to the album's studio sessions, including one long-sought track that has never been released. The album will also be released on 180g vinyl.

One of my all-time favourites! 'Life And How To Live It' is quite possibly the best REM song of all time, in my humble opinion. Thanks so much for posting and I'll definitely check out the reissue. Cheers eh!
