Radio Free Europe (Original Hib-Tone Single) (7")

Previously unavailable for 40 years in any format, this limited-edition pressing represents the first ever re-release of R.E.M.’s debut 1981 single “Radio Free Europe” The 7” features the original Hib-Tone mix of “Radio Free Europe” as well as “Sitting Still” on the B-side, offering some of the band's earliest recordings.

The package is presented in its original format: as a 45 RPM single housed in replica jacket. In a homage to the band’s hometown, the single was pressed in Athens, GA at Kindercore Vinyl.

Cassette Set: 1981 Demonstration Tape (Cassette)

This re-issue is a direct reproduction of the initially released cassette single, down to the packaging, complete with the inclusion of “White Tornado,” an instrumental anomaly in the band’s catalog, and “Sitting Still” backing “Radio Free Europe”. The cassette re-issue is strictly limited to 1,500 copies, exclusive to the R.E.M. HQ webstore.
