The Replacements, one of the most beloved and influential alt-rock groups ever to come from Minneapolis, is having its entire catalog reissued and remastered with extensive bonus material, according to an article in Billboard magazine.
First up for the reissue treatment will be the band's Twin/Tone material, which includes early hardcore material like Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash and the Stink EP, as well as Hootenanny, which showed the band growing by leaps and bounds in songwriting complexity with tracks like "Within Your Reach" (featuring a drum machine) and "Color Me Impressed" and Let It Be, which is widely regarded as being one of the greatest albums rock music has ever produced.
The reissued albums were prepared by former Replacements manager/Twin/Tone head Peter Jesperson with the input of all of the surviving 'Mats members. The first four reissues of The Replacements' catalog are due April 22nd via Rhino Records. Here is the list of the bonus materials that will be included on the re-releases (via Billboard):
