“The Inside Story of R.E.M.’s Early Recording Sessions”

In an outstanding article at Music Radar, producer Mitch Easter shares his in-depth knowledge from heading up the band’s early recording sessions: “They were really committed to that ethos too. They felt like there was a moral quality to getting your shit together fast. I mean they weren’t slapdash about it; they were picky, but they weren’t neurotic at all. They were excited about their band. It was glorious. I think they rehearsed a lot just because they liked to play together. Everyone in the band was kind of a one-take-wonder.”
