So if the news of the Replacements‘ reunion tour isn’t enough to make you smile, then here is some news that just make. Rhino Records has assembled a box set of all of the band’s full-length albums – Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash (1981), Hootenanny (1983)
Let It Be (1984), Tim (1985), Pleased to Meet Me (1987), Don’t Tell a Soul (1989) and All Shook Down (1990), plus 1982’s Stink EP – all into one convenient collection. There won’t be any bonus material, just the original albums all remastered. Here is the fun press release about it.
So, you don’t have an excuse to keep those old cassettes any more. The box set will come out on April 14, in between their show in San Francisco and the first night in Los Angeles.
