This is a DVD Live show from 5/27/85 Meredith College, in Raleigh, NC.

I am not sure what else to say about this. I think its amazing so you should as well. It captures REM during the Pre-Construction Tour when Stipe was going through his Hobo Phase. This is actually a benefit show and one of the first ones they ever did. Also on the Bill were The Connells, The Pressure Boys and Me & Dixon and a couple of bonus clips were included. While the sound probably is not the best the video is quite worth it. Still, this is not an audience recording. This is one of those "College Television Recordings" or like something you might see on Local Access Cable.

I think this show is right next to Passaic and Rockpalast as a must have for collectors. The quality of the video is above average, multiple cameras etc.
