REM Chronic Town EP Vinyl picture disc Michael Stipe Pete Buck
Celebrating its 40th anniversary, R.E.M.’s debut EP Chronic Town as a picture disc vinyl edition.
 
Featuring classics in the band’s repertoire such as Gardening At Night, Wolves, Lower and 1,000,000, the five song EP, as Rolling Stone noted, “Served notice that R.E.M. was an outfit to watch.” 
 
Chronic Town was an anomaly, a record that didn’t quite fit into the constraints of what was played on the radio. So instead of trying to fit into a genre, R.E.M. helped create their own: College Rock. 
 
Please note:
 
Picture discs are handmade and not audiophile pressings. 
 
This process of manufacture makes them, inevitably, more susceptible to crackles, pops and occasional warping.
 
But they do look fab!
