To while away the time before tomorrow, read about resissues reviews, Jesperson interviews and way way more

First of all, don’t forgot to vote for the best ‘Mats record before it’s too late!

Pitchfork gives the resissue of Let it Be a perfect 10 (told you Let it Be was the best. One of these days you will all listen to me and my infinite wisdom. Rolling Stone only gives it 4 stars.

VH1 lists 10 Great Songs by The Replacments, five (yes FIVE) of them are off of Let it Be.

If you only read one thing this week, read Teenage Kicks’ kickass interview with Peter Jesperson. Part 1 and Part 2.

Bill Deville of 89.3 The Current gets all excited about the reissues.

If you haven’t read it yet, Reuters has a great, great, great, great interview with Paul and tommy about the reissues.

What I like the most about this recollection of a Replacements’ concert, is not that the author, Jim, doesn’t really remember much it’s that the ticket cost $2.50.

A columnist in North Dakota rakes leaves and reminisces about the ‘Mats.

    You should probably go nab one of those to send to your favorite unemployed webmistress.

    I tried to snag an extra copy, but they told me no. even when I explained that it was for the queen.
    So, I tried.
    Please be a kind and benevolent queen, and have mercy on me, for they have not seen the wrath and fury of the queen up close, as I have, and don’t know the situation that they have put me in.
