Mats fans have something to look forward to this Spring, as the band’s Twin/Tone catalog is finally getting the deluxe reissue treatment, remastered, and chock full of demos, unreleased outtakes, etc, etc. (April 22 via Rhino). Fans of the the band’s latter era albums also take note, as the Sire catalog reissues are tentatively set for a late 2008 release. (via billboard)
Rhino’s final reissue in this batch, “Let It Be,” is regarded by many as the Replacements’ best album. The 1984 release boasts indelible tracks such as “Unsatisfied,” “I Will Dare” and “Androgynous”; it is here bolstered by an alternate version of “Sixteen Blue,” the home demo for “Answering Machine” and covers of the Grass Roots’ “Temptation Eyes” and T. Rex’s “20th Century Boy.”
