Will the wonders of the Internet never cease? There’s actually a professional quality live recording of the song from whence I drew our current tag line available online.
That’s right. A professional quality recording of The Replacements from 1981. It may be more professional than the album they put out in 1981.
And you can download the whole concert here! Legally! (Seriously! Legally!)
There’s some other interesting stuff there as well (at the frame-laden main site)–early Soul Asylum and Jayhawks, plus something called The Slickee Boys who I’ve never heard of and haven’t listened to yet but they just have to be awesome because they’re called The Slickee Boys.
