The on-going, chronological reissues of the R.E.M. catalogue continue, and the good news is that even a switch of record labels hasn't changed the program. For 1988's Green, the band jumped ship from indie status (I.R.S.) to major label Warner. That means the reissues also switch, from the EMI banner to Warner, but Green continues the same exact format. The original album is on one CD, there's a bonus disc #2, a huge poster, postcards of the band, and an over-sized box to hold it all. So for those collecting them all, this fits nicely alongside.At the time, the cool kids warned that moving to a major would be the demise of the group, going commercial and all that. But it really had been a steady progress for the group, from minor-key mumblers to crisp and clear hit-makers. Their previous disc, Document, had delivered The One I Love, and It's The End Of The World As We Know It, the crowds were bigger with each tour, and people could actually sing along.
