2 October 1985 - Germany.

R.E.M., from CHRONIC TOWN through FABLES, was the most important thing in my life. They got me through my early adulthood and passages of stark raving reality I might not have survived without them. Their songs said things I couldn't, in my broken state, articulate for myself. For that, I'll always be grateful. This is, I think, R.E.M. at its absolute pinnacle as a live band, without the trappings (and distractions) of mass popularity.

Enjoy.
