The Replacements / Pleased to Meet Me

3CD+LP deluxe edition

The Replacements‘ 1987 studio album Pleased to Meet Me will be reissued as a deluxe edition in October.

The band’s fifth studio album was recorded as a trio (after guitarist Bob Stinson’s exit after the release of the previous album Tim). The sessions took place in Memphis at the end of 1986 and early 1987, with Jim Dickinson producing. By the time the album was released, in April ’87, guitarist Bob ‘Slim’ Dunlap had joined.

The album is reissued as a 3CD+LP deluxe set and comes with an incredible amount of bonus material; largely demos and outtakes. There’s 38 in total, with most of them previously unreleased. There are also six non-album tracks appended to the album on the first CD.

This comes with a vinyl record which rather than featuring the studio album is actually a version featuring rough cuts.

This comes presented as a 12″ x 12″ hardcover book with rare photos and a new notes by Bob Mehr, author of Trouble Boys: The True Story of the Replacements.

Pleased to Meet Me will be released on 9 October 2020.
