Slowly filling holes in my collection of albums I used to have. Getting this means I now have their first 5 full length releases, although I need to get the EP 'Chronic Town' which was their first album...and they have several others after the first 5 I want to get. Someone had fun designing this album jacket. The front of the jacket is printed upside down...you hold the opening to the left to read it right side up. The back is printed sideways...you hold the opening up to read it right side up. Oh..and you have A Side and Another Side instead of 1 & 2 or A & B. But some great stuff. R.E.M. - Fables Of The Reconstruction

Yep. Michael Stipe is one day older than me...I was named after him. Because he was named first.

I would say you don't know how happy I am that you got this...but then you know how much I love music and R.E.M., so you probably do know how happy I am.

@JolietJake — now you’ll be goofing on Elvis. That’s okay, try not to breathe.

Never was a Vinyl fan , never bought any records. I do remember REM, cool that you found the album.

@JolietJake I had a child's record player, and as an adult we bought a big one but realized that was not good...we moved almost every year for too long to bring it along.
