R.E.M.  made two very memorable appearances on MTV's  Unplugged , in 1991 and 2001. For some reason, those two performances were never available as official releases until this past April's Record Store Day, when they were released as a limited four-vinyl slab set, which sold out pretty much instantly. To quench the thirst of R.E.M. fans, the band is re-releasing the vinyl, this time as two individual sets arriving in stores today.

1991 Unplugged  and  2001 Unplugged  each contain two vinyl albums in gatefold sleeves. The sets are priced at $39.98, and each set contains tracks which did not make the original broadcast; five on  1991  and six on  2001

For all you anti-old-schoolers out there,  1991  and  2001 Unplugged  are also available on CD or digital formats.
