#145 REM - Hollywood, CA. 2003 (Flac)

Avalon Hollywood Theatre
Hollywood, CA
October 29, 2003

This show was used to promote the 'In Time: The Best of R.E.M. 1988–2003' album. It was the first time that the band's later work was featured on a compilation and was released by Warners to try and boost the band's sales profile.

This show as the original notes mention was pressed on CD and distributed to radio stations. It has never been available to buy and is now difficult to acquire.

The release of 'In Time' falls between the release of studio albums Reveal (2001) and Around The Sun (2004). This performance has quite an unusual set list. It doesn't indulge or gratify the most recent studio album or the tracks compiled on the new Best Of.
