"Athens, GA-Inside/Out" back in print

When the documentary "Athens, GA – Inside/Out" was released in 1987, it provided a peek into a town that had turned the music world upside down by producing acts like R.E.M. and The B-52’s.

For those who didn’t get to see this limited-release film in the theaters (or in clips on shows like MTV’s 120 Minutes), a soundtrack LP filled with rare and unreleased music was also released to universal acclaim.

Twenty-five years later, Omnivore Recordings will reissue it on DVD and, for the first time, the soundtrack on CD – all in one package – on Oct. 9. The newly remastered CD version contains five bonus tracks, including two previously unheard performances.

The performances featured on the soundtrack CD were recorded solely for the film project, and have been a holy grail in the collector’s circuit for the nearly 20 years that the original soundtrack LP has been out of print.

Bonus tracks include songs featured in the film that were not on the original LP, as well as ones from the sessions that weren’t included in either the film or the LP—including a newly found performance of Love Tractor’s cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Shattered” with R.E.M.’s Peter Buck on guitar.
