Album of the Day
Dead Man's Pop
Although DON'T TELL A SOUL ultimately became The Replacements' best-selling effort, the Minneapolis rock and roll renegades were unsatisfied with the sound of the record. Now the band has radically reimagined that 1988 album to create DEAD MAN'S POP - the group's first-ever boxed set. The new 4-CD/1-LP collection features the originally intended track sequence and mix, a disc of rare and unreleased material (including early versions of such songs as “I’ll Be You” and “Achin’ To Be,” and five recordings with Tom Waits) and the band’s entire June 2, 1989 show at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Presented in a photo-filled 12 x 12 hardcover book with liner noted by Replacements biographer Bob Mehr, DEAD MAN'S POP gives new life to one of the legendary quartet's most underrated releases.
