From Wikipedia Hib-Tone was the name of an Atlanta -based recording label founded by Johnny Hibbert, a law student at the University of Georgia, in 1981. The label only lasted through four releases from 1981-1985, and never released a full length album by any artist.
The band's debut single "Radio Free Europe" was released on Hib-Tone in 1981 and re-recorded for the debut album Murmur in 1983. Stipe's "mumbling" singing style helped establish interest in his lyrics as enigmatic and obscure.
"Dark Globe" was covered by R.E.M. while the band was touring to support Document and Green. R.E.M. first released the song in 1989 on the single "Orange Crush", and they re-released it in 1993 on the British "collector's edition" of the single for "Everybody Hurts".
