Live Ledge #169: Replacements Review

Obviously, the September 13 appearance of the Replacements in St. PIaul, Minnesota was a big moment for me. Tonight's episode attempts to relive that evening, as  babble on and on about his experience. Included is a few tracks recorded that evening at Midway Stadium. I also talk about the previous evening's benefit for former Replacements guitarist Slim Dunlap, that included the announcement that Jon Clifford's autographed poster fetched over $5,000 on ebay!
After that, the show becomes another "blog find" episode, where I play tracks from the various online finds of the last few weeks. Included is a wonderful Pretty Things tribute album, a set of all covers, and various other "rawking" tracks.

Live Ledge #168: Replacements Covers

It's a big week for fans of the Replacements, Besides the upcoming homecoming show in St, Paul, their first Twin Cities appearance since 1991, word also came down during tonight's show that the band would be appearing on the Jimmy Fallon show this coming Tuesday night.
Tonight's show is an appetizer for the week's festivities, as it's nothing but cover versions of the band's catalog. Every album is represented, culled from a variety of sources including the five tribute albums that have been released so far.
It's the perfect companion show for that trip to Minneapolis this week, and if you make it up on Friday please come to the Parkway Theater. I'll be helping host a benefit party for guitarist Slim Dunlap, which will include a Live Ledge taping, numerous musical performances, and a screening of a special version of Color Me Obsessed. We'll also be giving away Jon Clifford's poster of Slim that's been signed by over 140 dignitaries.
