The Replacments To Reissue Tim With 50 Previously Unheard Tracks

Written by:

The Replacements’ Tim is being treated to a rather massive deluxe reissue.

The Minneapolis band’s 1985 classic has been remastered and packaged in a 4xCD, 1xLP box set, which will also feature a live album that was recorded in 1986 at Chicago’s Cabaret Metro.

Titled Tim: The Let It Bleed Edition, the collection will contain 50 previously unheard tracks, including a January 1985 session with Alex Chilton that has been shelved until now.

The ‘Mats’ official biographer Bob Mehr released a statement that read: “After nearly 40 years, Tim remains a charmed collision of intention and accident, a balance of deliberate anthems and tossed-off gems, of raucous release and refined beauty — and a record that perfectly captures the band’s fraught but always compelling ascent on the ladder of success.”
