any soundboard REM gigs REMFAN? :) looking for monster tour soundboards

Thanks for the demos! I have a few Monster Bootlegs, I'm not sure if they're soundboard? I think they were recorded from FM Radio broadcasts? If you wanna know more about them (Title, date, etc) let me know. They sound pretty decent, I think. I also have the ripped audio from the Road Movie DVD, if you're interested?

Would you happen to have the Green Demos? I believe that's about all I'm missing.
radio fm bcasts are fine by me, would love to know the dates/tracklists. ive got road movie audio thanks for the offer though.
yeah ive got green demo's & even document demo's if anyone wants them uploading.
do you want the other tracks upping which you requested? will dig them out if so

Ya, I'll take all the demos you have, thanks! Here's the info on the Monster Bootlegs I have.

Notes: One collector comments that this may not be from the Brisbane show: "I think the bootleg called "the Megatour" is mislabeled as Brisbane 1/22/95. I think it is acutally a re-sequenced version of 1/16/95 Adelaide. While i don't have my copy of the Megatour anymore, i remember doing track comparisons when it first came out to "sweet adelaide", and they were identical... Another thing is, the Megatour is missing 5 songs from the tape boot of 1/22: Turn You inside out / pop song 89 / monty got a raw deal / begin the begin / Star me kitten.....while it contains 3 songs not played on 1/22: drive / country feedback / heron house. All 3 of these were played in Adelaide. "

I only have a studio version of this on the Bad Day single (Stipe only). Do you have that already? I also have the original by Magnapop, which was included on an UNCUT Magazine comp. CD put together by Michael.

Many thanks for the demos! I'll track down those Monster bootlegs for you. Do you only want the songs you listed in your previous post? Obviously, that'll take a lot less time to upload, than the whole thing. But whatever you want, is fine with me! :)

Thanks for the links again.

I haven't listened to much of their stuff from recent years. I love their old classic stuff, I'm under the impression from what I've read on the net that their newer stuff is not up to par. Monster was a grower for me.

Any thoughts or recommendations anyone?
