Out of Time B-sides

greenspun.com : LUSENET : R.E.M. : One Thread

The live tracks that are on the collecters edition singles: I would like to know where and when they were recorded please. The Losing My Religion single says late 1989, as does Shiny Happy people. Near Wild Heaven has comlpete info (London 3/91). Can you help?

Hey Craig,

What is the collecters edition singles. Is it the singles collected (Box). A bootleg, or what is it?

Hey Thomas, your supposed to answer the question, not ask me one back!!!

I'm talking about the collectors edition version of the four Out of Time singles. And yes they are available as the boxed set R.E.M. SINGLES COLLECTION.

The Losing My Religion and Shiny Happy People b-sides are from the "tourfilm" movie. And I think the Radio Song B-sides are from the same source. They filmed the last shows in Greenboro, NC and Atlanta, GA.

Thanks Stephan. I added some information to the R.E.M. Singles Collection page here as a result. All the live songs on LMR and SHP were played at both thoses shows. You're probably right about the Radio Song b-sides too. If anyone knows for sure about these tracks let us know please!

I was wrong with my suggestion about the Radio Song B-Sides. Orange Crush and Belong are not from tourfilm. They didn4t perform Orange Crush on the video, and from Belong they are only a few seconds on it. But the Orange Crush tape is the same version than the one wich is used on a version of the Everybody Hurts-Single. The cover of Everybody Hurts says it was recorded in Georgia 11/89.
