Welcome To The Occupation
Capital/I.R.S. Records have announced that R.E.M.’s 1987 album Document will get the deluxe reissue treatment on September 25.
Besides a digitally remastered version of that album — which includes the songs “The One I Love” and “It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)” — the two-disc collection will also include a recording of their oft-bootlegged September 14, 1987 show un Utrect, Holland. Sadly, though, it’s not the complete show, as it omits their covers of Clique’s “Superman,” Iggy Pop’s “Funtime,” Wire’s “Strange,” Hugo Largo’s “Harpers,” and Peter Gabriel’s “Red Rain.”
The collection also includes four postcards and new liner notes by journalist David Daley.
Along with the two-disc CD collection, the album will also be released on 180g vinyl by Mobile Fidelity.
