Uncut: The REM Collection: Disc 3 (Peter Buck)

This month, you can take your pick of CDs with your copy of Uncut magazine. Peter Buck (who digs Sufjan Stevens, Stephen Malkmus, and the Go Betweens), Mike Mills (a Big Star/Replacements/Miracle Legion kinda guy), and Michael Stipe (a fan of Now It's Overhead, Magnapop, and Joseph Arthur) each compiled a CD for the magazine. Each CD ends with the same song. Coincidence? I think not! That song is a version of REM's own "Boy in the Well," recorded at a 2004 London concert.

I didn't realize until I got the mag home that there was more than one version of the CD. Oops. I thought the first track listing in the magazine was the only one, so I thought I was getting Mike Mills' songs and I wound up with Peter Bucks' tunes instead. Hey, who hasn't been there? *crickets* Ah, well, no harm done. You can have a listen to 30-second snippets from the songs of each compilation at the Uncut website.

Thanks for adding us to your blogroll! I've been meaning to put up an mp3 blog list--hopefully this week I'll get to it. And thanks for the print mag tips. For all the time I spend online, there's still something about paper. Free CDs are nice too.
