Beginning last year with Murmur, the R.E.M. catalog is once again getting the redux treatment — up next, Reckoning (more on that next week). Listening the reissue I’ve been digging out my IRS-era vinyl including Lifes Rich Pageant. On it, with Mike Mills on lead vocals, the band covers “Superman” by The Clique, a Texas based sixties pop band. Check it. This is also an excuse to run the above newspaper clipping of Buck during his days as a record store clerk, in Athens, at Wuxtry.
