Very few albums are regularly credited with changing people’s lives. R.E.M.’s Lifes Rich Pageant is one of them. For a generation that came of age in the '80s, as well almost everyone that came within earshot of its contents, the Georgia band’s 1986 landmark effort remains an utterly distinctive sonic blend of elegance and whimsy, seriousness and humor, artfulness and accessibility.

 

 

  • Numbered Limited Edition
  • 180 grams High Definition Vinyl pressed at RTI
  • Half-Speed mastering on MFSL Gain 2 Ultra Analog System
  • Mastered by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab
  • Cut from the Original Analog Master Tapes
  • Mastered by Shawn R. Britton
  • Special Static Free & Dust Free Inner Sleeves
  • Deluxe Gatefold heavy duty cover

 

 

Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes and meticulously pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity’s 180g LP version of this masterwork allows the record’s expressive punchiness, dynamic extension, treble-driven jangle, and more forceful playing to be experienced as originally intended.

 

Indeed, Life’s Rich Pageant is notable for its production: Board operator Don Gehman lends the group a harder edge and cleaner sound than it had in the past. On this audiophile-grade reissue, the results come to the fore in the form of contemporary-sounding arrangements, cohesive structures, and cleaner tonalities. If anything, this LP helps make the case for the many that Life’s Rich Pageant, not Murmur or Reckoning, stands as the band’s finest hour.
