The Replacements THE TWIN/TONE YEARS Limited Edition Numbered 4LP Vinyl Box Set

Overview:
Limited Edition, individually numbered, Four-LP Collection of The Replacements early years recording for the legendary Minneapolis Record Label Twin/Tone Records. This collection features: Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash (1981), the Stink EP (1982), Hootenanny (1983) and Let It Be (1984) pressed on vinyl for the first time in over two decades.

The Replacements signed 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.”

Featured Albums:
Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash (1981)
