Replacements Fans Rejoice!

Hot off the wire from the NME: "The Replacements have announced that they will release deluxe reissues of four of their landmark albums this spring.

The influential American rockers are preparing to reissue 'Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash', 'Stink', 'Hootenanny' and 'Let It Be' on April 22 in the US.

The albums, which were originally released between 1981 and 1984, have been remastered and contain bonus material featuring rare and previously unreleased tracks."

If you're a Replacements fan, which I am, this is some pretty exciting news. I'll also be purchasing the deluxe 30th anniversary edition of Nick Lowe's Jesus Of Cool when it comes in next Tuesday. It will contain all tracks from both the English AND American (where it was called Pure Pop For Now People) edition plus some other little gems.

Can't wait!

As a huge Mats fan, it'll be interesting to see what they include. I've a bunch of bootlegs and the like - as well as all the original stuff - so they're going to have to impress me to go out and spend my hard-earned $$$ on stuff I already have. BTW, I was supposed to have been at the Oklahoma City show where "Shit Hits the Fans" came from. Big ice storm kept me in Norman, instead of at the Brickyard. Bummer.

Interesting...very interesting. I'm not a Replacements completest exactly, but I could definitely add "Sorry Ma" to my collection.

I don't suppose there's any chance of anything like a Mats reunion tour, hunh? Actually, I don't care if it's all the Mats, so long as Paul gets out on the road again.
