On the day that Michael Stipe released his first new material without his former band, it might be helpful to remember that this isn’t the first time Stipe has voyaged out on his own. And in case you need a refresher: some hero has put together an 80-minute compilation of the times Stipe has gone solo over the course of his career. The video quality varies: everything from TV rips to camera-phone footage, and while it’s difficult to authoritatively declare this compilation complete, it does contain everything from ’80s appearances with Indigo Girls to a more recent stint sitting in with, uh, Coldplay.
