Published Aug 07, 2012Back in 1987, the film Athens, GA - Inside/Out documented the southern city's thriving music scene, which included R.E.M., the B-52s, Flat Duo Jets and Pylon. Now, audiences will have a chance to experience it all over again when the film and its soundtrack will receive an expanded reissue.
On October 9, Omnivore Recordings will release Athens, GA - Inside/Out as a CD/DVD package, marking the first time that the soundtrack has been available on CD. The original 13-song soundtrack has been remastered and fleshed out with five bonus tunes, including Love Tractor's cover of the Rolling Stones' "Shattered" featuring Peter Buck of R.E.M. on guitar.
An announcement from Omnivore notes that the songs on the soundtrack were recorded specially for the film and that the collection has been a "holy grail in the collector's circuit for the nearly 20 years that the soundtrack LP has been out of print." It includes R.E.M.'s Everly Brothers cover "(All I've Got to Do Is) Dream."
As for the DVD, it comes with a 2003 interview with Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson of the B-52's, plus bonus scenes, a commentary track and more. Go to Omnivore's website to read more about the release and pre-order it now.
