R.E.M. Live from the Raleigh Underground COMPLETE SHOW, 10 Oct 1982

101,775 views 3 years ago
Since this isn't a master or even an early-gen recording, analog a/v imperfections are present. Well, they're more than present; they're fucking everywhere, but I've made no alterations to the source, aside from encoding without interlacing.

Live from the Pier, once located in the Village Subway in the legendary and now sadly abandoned Raleigh Underground. Less than two months earlier the band released their first EP, CHRONIC TOWN (I.R.S. Records, 24 Aug 1982).

This is the earliest known professionally shot video of a live R.E.M. gig.

Lorelei, about 400 feet above the eastern bank of the Rhine, near St. Goarshausen, Germany. Filmed six months after the release of U2's third LP, WAR, on February 28, 1983.

Beautifully filmed by at least a half dozen cameras.

Running Time: 54:15

I watch this show from beginning to end on DVD and it seems like some sort of miracle of controlled mayhem. Never fails to make my pulse quicken. The band was in f****ing top form, and the energy level was at fever pitch from the first notes of "Going Up"...catch that smile between Ian and Les, right before Ian begins the first verse... this is Echo at their absolute best.

In all honesty, is there anything more tight than Les and Pete . . . locked and loaded?
