Need Replacements For Your Old Vinyl? Alt-Rock Pioneers' Reissues Coming Soon

Article written by Kev W - Jul 9, 2015

The three albums and an EP that The Replacements recorded for Twin/Tone Records will be combined as a collection for a limited edition four-LP release on August 14th. Check out the info:

" LOS ANGELES – The Replacements signed with Minneapolis-based Twin/Tone Records in 1980. Over the next four years, the band helped shape the future of alternative rock with its “Left of the Dial” sound and notorious live shows, where the band often danced the razor’s edge between brilliant and belligerent.

Rhino revisits the influential quartet’s early years with a new vinyl boxed set that includes the Replacement’s first four releases, which are being pressed on vinyl for the first time in over two decades. THE TWIN/TONE YEARS will be available on Friday, August 14 as an individually numbered, limited edition of 8,000 copies.

The collection features: Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash (1981), the Stink EP (1982), Hootenanny (1983) and Let It Be (1984). Later this year, Rhino will also release a second vinyl boxed set that highlights the four albums the band recorded for Sire Records between 1985-90.

Paul Westerberg, Chris Mars, Tommy Stinson, and brother Bob Stinson started out in Minneapolis playing in basements and garages before Peter Jesperson signed the band to Twin/Tone Records in 1980. Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash arrived a year later with songs like “Takin’ A Ride,” “I Bought A Headache,” and “Shiftless When Idle.”

The band returned in 1982 with the Stink EP. The indelible lead track “Kids Don’t Follow” is bolstered by the whiplash rhythms and sneering defiance of “God Damn Job” and “Dope Smokin’ Moron.”

The band began to expand its musical horizons the following year on Hootenanny. There were rockers — “Mr. Whirly” and “Color Me Impressed” — but also the moody groove of “Within Your Reach,” the slurry shuffle of “Treatment Bound” and “Loveline,” a swinging vamp on the want ads.

The group’s final Twin/Tone album, Let It Be (1984), brought all of the ’Mats’ strengths together. It’s recognized today as one of the greatest albums of the 1980s thanks to classic tracks like “I Will Dare,” “Androgynous,” and “Unsatisfied.”
