The classic Replacements lineup of Paul Westerberg, brothers Tommy and Bob Stinson, and Chris Mars remain unbeatable. The inhuman streak of Let It Be, Tim, and Pleased to Meet Me are bested by only a few.
Long thought lost to time, this live recording captures the Replacements at their peak. Their ragged, soused live show-once a thing of anecdotal legend-is presented in its fullest form, warts and all.
Based on Mehr's plethora of interviews, it seems that most of what seemed grist for the rumor mill about the Replacements was, if anything, understated.
