The Replacements - Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash (1LP + 4 CD)

The ReplacementsSKU: R2659038



**40th Anniversary, 1LP + 4CD Box Set**

The 40th anniversary of Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash is celebrated with a 4CD/1LP set that offers a remarkable document of The Replacements' formative years.

Of the set's 100 tracks, 67 have never been released before, including the first demos the band recorded in early 1980, as well as a professionally captured concert from January 1981. Along with a newly remastered version of the original album, it also uncovers many unreleased rough mixes, alternate takes, and demos from the band's first 18 months together. The LP included in the set, titled Deliberate Noise, presents an alternate version of the original album using these previously unreleased tracks.

Part of The Replacements' appeal always was that they didn't quite fit into any tidy category and nowhere was that truer than on their 1981 debut, Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash. Falling over themselves to fit into the Minneapolis hardcore scene, the 'Mats played fast and loose, which was part of the problem - they were too loose, lacking the discipline to fit within hardcore, which even in '81 was adhering to the loud-fast rules that would later morph into straight-edge.
