R.E.M. Live From Austin TX Out Now

Just a quick reminder that R.E.M.’s latest DVD, R.E.M. Live From Austin, TX was released two days ago on New West Records label. The DVD, which captures R.E.M.’s fantastic live performance recorded and broadcast as part of the legendary PBS Austin City Limits television series is available in North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. The DVD contains an extended performance including three songs never aired on the original broadcast. The setlist comprises no less than 9 songs off the band’s 2008 album Accelerate, plus 8 old favourites such as “Fall On Me”, “Drive” etc. These 17 songs have been re-mixed and re-mastered in LPCM stereo and DTS-HD 5.1 surround sound, which should make all audio geeks happy. happy

This DVD can be ordered from Amazon and other retailers. Below you can see and hear the band in action: the song is “Living Well Is The Best Revenge”, previewed via REMhq. Now, if anyone has ever had any doubts whether Mike Mills deserves to have a fansite dedicated to him, the video below should reassure them! I mean, just listen to that bass… the man is a phenomenal musician.

    Yeah, baby. I’ll have to put “Live from Austin” on the list for Santa. Most excellent bass runs from Mike.

    I’ve just ordered a copy, can’t wait! I love R.E.M.’s live recordings because we can actually hear that thundering Fender Precision (which is so often burried in the mix on their studio albums).
