The Memphis Flyer has an interview with Jim Dickinson, producer of Pleased to Meet Me.

Flyer: How did you get the assignment to work on Pleased To Meet Me?
Dickinson: Through their management. I don’t think the Replacements knew who I was. What bass player Tommy Stinson told me later — they’d just fired lead guitarist Bob Stinson [Tommy’s brother] — was that they’d come to Memphis to break up. They’d had it planned that they were going to kind of theatrically combust. But we got to cutting demos, and it started working. They had never played as a trio, but it seemed to work, and so we started the project.

And the Louisville Courier-Journal provides a guide for rediscovering The Replacements.

New York magazines recommends the re-issues.

Okay, this piece from a blog called Lakes and Trees about visiting Minneapolis and playing “Where’s Westerberg?” made me laugh.

    Yes, I pre-ordered mine and got them in the mail yesterday as I was recuperating from the supercold that’s been going around lately. So enjoyable. Seeing my buddy Lynn Blakey get namechecked for “Left of The Dial” was hysterical!! Is ure hope she got the cd for free! 😉

    All and all, worthwhile purchases. Good liner notes. I had some of the bonus tracks on various bootlegs, but there were some I didn’t have. Went back and read All Over But The Shoutin’ as I listen. Then the nyquil kicked in just as I got to Jodi’s contribution!

    My writing is often used as a sedative.

    Ouch! I sure didn’t mean it like that, Jodi. You’re prose is deathless and breathless!!! 😉

    I am just busting your chops. I knew that’s not what you meant.
