Rhino retraces the shambolic swath the influential Minneapolis quartet cut The Replacements across the American Underground, reissuing deluxe editions of the band’s Twin/Tone releases: Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out The Trash, Stink, Hootenanny and Let It Be.
All have been exquisitely remastered and generously embellished with rare and previously unreleased tracks.
Each will be available at all physical retail outlets and at www.rhino.com on April 22 for a suggested list price of $18.98 except Stink, which will have a suggested list price of $11.98.
These releases will be followed later this year with similar deluxe versions of The Replacements’ Sire albums including Tim, Pleased To Meet Me, Don’t Tell A Soul and All Shook Down.
Capturing the early years of the band’s acclaimed 11-year run, these three albums and EP spotlight founding members Paul Westerberg, brothers Bob and Tommy Stinson and Chris Mars.
The deluxe editions were produced by longtime Replacements manger Peter Jesperson, who also co-produced the original albums. The band was instrumental in selecting the bonus songs, many of which have never been heard—even among the band’s most ardent followers.
