According to this story, R.E.M. will be reissuing their 1986 classic Lifes Rich Pageant on July 12th.
From the story –
The 25th anniversary edition will be released as a two-disc set and on vinyl. The digitally remastered version will include a second disc of 19 previously unreleased demos recorded in March of 1986, including early versions of songs released later, as well as "Wait," a song that has never been officially released by the band. The deluxe version of Lifes Rich Pageant will also include a poster, four postcards and new liner notes penned by journalist Parke Puterbaugh.
The band has also released deluxe versions of their earlier records but I haven’t gotten any of them (the bonus tracks just didn’t seem worth the price). I may I get this one though. I consider Lifes Rich Pageant one of R.E.M.’s best albums and it is one of my personal favorites from their catalog.
