Back in the late-‘80s, Athens was one of those dots on the map signifying an Unlikely Musical Hub.
In 1987, the documentary “Athens, GA – Inside/Out” was released, giving a look into the creatively flush city that birthed these acts.
Those who missed the movie the first time around can check it out Oct. 9 when it’s reissued on DVD with an accompanying soundtrack that contains five bonus tracks (one is Love Tractor’s cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Shattered” with Peter Buck on guitar).
The DVD also includes a commentary track and a 2003 interview with Katie Pierson and Cindy Wilson of The B-52s.
Some remastered tracks on the CD:
The Squalls, “Na Na Na Na”; R.E.M., “(All I’ve got to Do is) Dream”; Time Toy, “Window Sill”; Dreams So Real, “Golden”; Flat Duo Jets, “Jet Tone Boogie.”
