The parade of reissues continues for Athens icon R.E.M. On July 12 an expanded, two-CD (and digital) 25th anniversary edition of 1986 album Lifes Rich Pageant will hit shelves and online retailers. The new edition features the digitally remastered original album, plus 19 previously unreleased demo recordings cut prior to the album’s studio sessions. The commemorative release also adds new liner notes by music journalist and author Parke Puterbaugh, with package presented in a lift-top box with a poster and four postcards. On the same date, the remastered original album will be reissued by Mobile Fidelity on 180-gram vinyl in faithfully replicated LP packaging.
