listen to The Replacements ‘Dead Man’s Pop’ box set + win a copy & a ‘Mats jacket!
The Replacements' new Don't Tell A Soul 30th anniversary box set, Dead Man's Pop, is out today via Rhino. The heart of the 4-CD, 1 LP limited edition set is Don't Tell a Soul Redux which uses Matt Wallace's original, unreleased mix of Don't Tell A Soul, adding original drum tracks, vocal takes and tempos that were altered in post-production. In other words, Redux adds back that messy Replacements spirit that was glossed away in the original mix.
Dead Man's Pop also includes the original sessions they did for the album with producer Tony Berg at Bearsville Studios in New York, as well as a session the 'Mats did with Tom Waits, including five songs that have never been released. There's also a complete 1989 live show, and a hardcover book featuring rare photos and new liner notes from band biographer Bob Mehr. You can stream it below, and grab a copy of your own here.
We're also giving away a copy of Dead Man's Pop, and it comes with a limited edition 'Mats baseball-style jacket (which you can see above)! Enter for a chance to win below.
A winner will be chosen at random and contacted with more details. Good luck!
