Vintage Video: R.E.M., ‘A Conversation with Michael Stipe’ — original ‘Document’ press kit

In honor of this week’s release of the expanded 25th anniversary reissue of Document, R.E.M. has posted the album’s original electronic press kit, a 6-minute, black-and-white video dubbed “A Conversation with Michael Stipe” that would have been sent to music journalists in 1987 to promote the then-forthcoming record.

As you can see from the video posted above, it mainly features Stipe at a podium discussing the album’s single and videos (“I’m here to talk to you tonight, and you’re going to listen,” he says at the opening), with some studio footage thrown in, too.
