Offered for sale is an original U.S. pressing of Green by R.E.M. .
About this copy: This copy of Green is a 1988 U.S. pressing on the Warner Brothers label.
The cover is M-. The custom inner sleeve is VG, with no wear or wrinkles, but it does have splits on three sides.
The disc is VG++ with a couple of light sleeve scuffs. It’s a clean disc that has had little play.
A nice copy of a scarce R.E.M. LP, as most buyers purchased a compact disc or cassette when the album was new.
Background: Released in 1988, Green was the sixth album by R.E.M. .
The album reached #12 on the U.S. album chart and #27 on the UK chart.
As far as major-label debuts by underground bands go, Green is fairly uncompromising. While it displays a more powerful guitar sound on “Get Up,” “Turn You Inside Out,” and “Orange Crush,” it also takes more detours than Document, whether it’s the bizarrely affecting contemporary folk of “The Wrong Child” and “You Are the Everything,” the bubblegum of “Stand” and “Pop Song 89,” or the introspection of the lovely “Hairshirt” and “World Leader Pretend.” …Nevertheless, half of the record is brilliant, and it certainly indicates that R.E.M. are continuing to diversify their sound.
