R.e.m / Rem First Demo Tape (1981) - Cassette Set - Rare:
You're offerding on one of the most rarest tapes there out there -R.E.M DEMO TAPE (1981),
On April 15, 1981 Easter and the band recordedthree tracks,
On the next day they mixed the tracks, and eventually had a demo cassette run to send to journalists, clubs and labels ahead of their initial visit to New York City.
On the final 100 Demo Tape Copies the band added an hilarious “Radio Dub” mix of “Radio Free Europe”, done by Easter on April 23, 1981 on a lark withInstruments/voices/effects dropping in and out of the mix, dub-style.
This cassette is lightly used and has hand-written labels. If I recall correctly there was alabel on Side B says "Don't" but it fell some 10 years ago,
And it wasn't until Several years ago,before I found out that there was a track on Side B.
The cassette plays perfectly and both the cover and the tape itself are in great shape considering it's age,Track List: Side A:01. Sitting Still (Fast “Polka” Version, snippet)
02. Sitting Still
03. Radio Free Europe
04. White Tornado
05. White Tornado (take 2, snippet) Side B:
