R.E.M., Lifes Rich Pageant (25th Anniversary Edition), CAPITOL and I.R.S.

August 19, 2011

REM---PageantWhile not as celebrated as other R.E.M. albums, Lifes Rich Pageant holds an important place in the canon. Not only was it the band’s first LP to go gold, it’s the record on which they morphed from floating like a butterfly to stinging like a bee. Recorded at John Mellencamp’s Indiana studio by his longtime engineer/producer, Don Gehman, Pageant delivers one knockout punch after another, from the jangle-onsteroids opener “Begin the Begin” to the aggromajestic fi nale “I Am Superman.”
