Vintage Audio: Peter Buck’s introduction to ‘Document’ at 1987’s New Music Seminar

R.E.M. formally announced its 25th anniversary expanded reissue of Document on Tuesday, and while we’d already reported on the release, there was one interesting new tidbit: the band dredged up a short recording made by guitarist Peter Buck to be played at 1987’s New Music Seminar in which he “introduced” the attendees to the band’s then-forthcoming and heavily anticipated fifth album (“And just keep telling yourself, ‘It’s only a record… it’s only a record'”). Check it about below.
