‘The Replacements’ Gets Vinyl Box Treatment From Rhino


The Replacements were at the forefront of alternative rock, and since their signing to Twin/Tone Records in 1980 the group’s “left of the dial” sound still resonates with music fans. Rhino is spotlighting the outfit with a new vinyl boxed set of their first four albums (Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the TrashStinkHootenannyLet It Be).

The albums, which haven’t been pressed on vinyl for over two decades, will be released as a limited edition of 8,000 copies, carrying a suggested price of $74.98. The collection comes out August 11 during Record Store Day’s “Vinyl Tuesday” initiative.

A second vinyl box set, which spotlights The Replacements’  four albums during their run with Sire Records, comes out later this year (also via Rhino).

Below is a video of Paul Westerberg discussing “The Ledge,” a track available on The Replacements album Pleased to Meet Me.
