I've been an REM fan for a long time, saw them in concert in 1985... 3rd row at Cleveland Music Hall, I took my camera in and got an awesome shot with Michael Stipe and Peter Buck... enlarged it up to 16x20, made 2 copies one for me and my friend Mark, and we went to see them in Pittsbugh, PA a couple days later... after the show I waited by the tour bus I got all 4 of them to sign the print with a silver paint pen while on the tour bus (Bill Berry said "I'm not signing that, I'm not even in it" I begged "please, please" and he signed), it's framed and hangs in my office.

1. Perfect Circle
2. Orange Crush
3. Imitation of Life
4. Fall On Me
5. Feeling Gravity's Pull
6. E-Bow The Letter
7. Begin The Begin
8. Finest Worksong
9. Sweetness Follows
10. Life And How To Live It
