Rare and previously unreleased tracks are on the way

The Replacements have announced that they will release deluxe reissues of four of their landmark albums this spring.

The influential American rockers are preparing to reissue ‘Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash’, ‘Stink’, ‘Hootenanny’ and ‘Let It Be’ on April 22 in the US.

The albums, which were originally released between 1981 and 1984, have been remastered and contain bonus material featuring rare and previously unreleased tracks.

The Replacements themselves chose several bonus tracks for the albums, which they claim even their most loyal fans have not yet heard.

The deluxe editions were produced by The Replacements‘ long-time manger, Peter Jesperson, who co-produced the original albums.
