Published Mar 06, 2015Minneapolis alt-rock icons the Replacements have been keeping busy lately, releasing 24-minute long jazz compositions and prepping for a U.S. tour this spring. And while unconfirmed rumours of the band working on a new record continue to swirl about, they have confirmed that a massive new box set is on its way next month.
Arriving as an eight-CD collection, The Complete Studio Albums 1981-1990 contains just what the title implies. For those who need a refresher, that means Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash (1981), Stink (1982), Hootenanny (1983), Let It Be (1984), Tim (1985), Pleased to Meet Me (1987), Don't Tell a Soul (1989) and All Shook Down (1990) will be included in the set.
In terms of sound quality, the recordings will match the remastered albums released back in 2008.
The collection is due out on April 14 via Rhino. Below, check out a press release that was sent from the label to the band for revisions [via Pitchfork].
