Longtime friend and colleague Michael Plen took these shots, portraying some key early R.E.M. history—never before available for sale. The Reckoning sleeve shot is the master image of Michael in Paris: Nov 24th, 1983 at the club Baines-Douches, the band’s first concert on the continent of Europe. The other is from the stage as the band opened for the Police at Shea Stadium on August 18th, 1983. Click here http://michaelplenphotography.bigcartel.com/ for details.
