For fans of The Replacements, 2015 is shaping up to be a pretty damn good year. Last month, the reunited alt-rock icons announced the “Back By Unpopular Demand” tour, their first full-fledged jaunt in 24 years. Now, Rhino Records is gearing up to release a new ‘Mats box set dubbed The Complete Studio Albums 1981-1990 on April 14th.
The eight-disc collection includes the band’s 1982 Stink EP and all seven 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), All Shook Down (1990). Each features the remastered sound found on Rhino’s 2008 deluxe releases. This comprehensive bundle will be available for a modest price tag of $59.98.
