The Replacements release new box set Dead Man’s Pop: Stream

on September 27, 2019, 12:00am

The Replacements have today released their new box set, Dead Man’s Pop. Stream the entire collection below via Apple Music and Spotify.

At the center of the four-disc collection is a new mix of The Replacements’ 1989 album Don’t Tell a Soul. Dubbed Don’t Tell a Soul Redux, the album has been completely remastered by producer Matt Wallace and mixer Chris Lod-Alge to more closely match The ‘Mats’ original vision. As Trouble Boys author Bob Mehr explains in the liner notes, this version “is the album the band made and intended to release. In addition to Matt Wallace’s mix, Redux also restores several crucial elements from the sessions, including original drums tracks, vocal takes, and tempos that were altered in post-production… [and] the band’s original sequence of the album.”

Disc two features rarities and unreleased tracks from sessions with producer Tony Berg and the storied recordings with Tom Waits (“Lowdown Monkey Blues”, “If Only You Were Lonely”, “I Can Help”). The final two discs comprise The Complete Inconcerated Live, a live album recorded during a June 2nd, 1989 gig at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

In his review of the box set for Consequence of Sound, Editor-in-Chief Michael Roffman argues that Don’t Tell a Soul is fine as is, remaining “an essential volume in the band’s wild mythology.” He continues,

“What Dead Man’s Pop offers is an unexpected new chapter in their canon, one that’s perhaps more fitting of their overall legacy. While one could argue Lord-Alge’s mix brought the band their first Billboard Hot 100 hit in “I’ll Be You”, time has proven that hit didn’t really bring them any long-term success. By scaling back then, Wallace has created an album that truly fits with their narrative, and that’s probably worth more now than then. After all, time has been very kind to The Replacements, who continue to build upon their legacy with each passing year, and Dead Man’s Pop is a welcome addition.”

Take a listen to Dead Man’s Pop below. You can also purchase the full box via Amazon.
