Glide Magazine’s Hidden track is offering a FLAC and mp3 download of The Replacements’ July 23rd, 1987 concert at the Beacon Theater in New York.
Writer Scott Bernstein had this to say about the show:
The coolest part of this recording is the copious amount of covers. Whipping Post is nearly complete and sounds fabulous with Westerberg pretty much screaming the lyrics. The ‘mats also played some high-profile covers in Springsteen’s Born In The U.S.A. and the Stones’ Honky Tonk Woman. Westerberg and Co. also hit upon some more obscure covers such as Love Goes (Where My Rosemary Grows) and California Sun. All in all, The Replacements played 11 covers, a staggering number. Do yourself a favor and check this show out.
So any of you bootleg afficionados, have any opinions on this show? Should we be scrambling to download it post haste?
