Pleased to Meet Me (Deluxe Box Set)

LP (Item 107356) Rhino/Warner, 1987 — Condition: Near Mint-
LP + 3CD Set

One of their best! After a tumultous tour for Tim, Bob Stinson left the band and they essentially recorded Pleased To Meet Me as a trio as far as the core band goes, but went down to Memphis to record with Jim Dickinson, and too our ears, that little bit of southern swagger, as paired with The Replacements still evolving blend of classic rock and punk influences and Westerberg's angry and weary songs makes this a helluva record – there are some days it's our favorite! Includes the totally great "Alex Chilton", plus "IOU", "I Don't Know", "Nightclub Jitters", "Never Mind", "Valentine", "Shooting Dirty Pool", "Skyway", "The Ledge" and "Can't Hardly Wait".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In a bound hardcover booklet package, with an LP of rough mixes, plus 3 CDs with a 2020 remaster, rare tracks, demos, and rough mixes!)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Replacements

Hootenanny
Twin Tone, 1983. Near Mint-
Ahhh . . . The young genius of The Replacements! A bit punk, a bit garage, with a heartfelt quality that you didn't always find in indie rock at the time.

Replacements

Tim
Sire, 1985. Near Mint-
A big crossover classic for the champions of the Minneapolis scene – their first for Sire and featuring some of the greatest rock songs of the 80s, be it college radio, mainstream or any thing – greatness period! The sound is a bit more polished than the Twin Tone years, but there's no ... LP, Vinyl record album

Replacements

Let It Be
Twin Tone, 1984. Near Mint-
The masterpiece by one of the greatest, most sincere rock bands of all time! Let It Be veers all over the place, or at least as much as jangly rock music can, in the best way possible. Includes the pseudo twangy opener "I Will Dare", with the distinctly midwestern hardcore of the group's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kraftwerk

Computer World
Warner, 1981. Very Good+
It's definitely a computer world when you're inside the mind of Kraftwerk – the machine made man, given a wonderful showcase here for the new decade! The sound is maybe a bit leaner and even more electronic than before – with the introduction of some digital elements, and a mix of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Laurie Anderson

Big Science
Warner, 1982. Very Good+
One of the greatest albums to come from the New York underground of the early 80s – even if it was a relatively big "hit" on a major label! Laurie Anderson is in perfect form here – drawing on a strong tradition of avant garde performance, but without any of the indulgences ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fleetwood Mac

Rumours
Warner, 1977. Very Good+
One of the most classic albums of the 70s – a never-ending hit that's continued to inspire generations! Back in the early years of punk, we were thinking that Rumours was a record that would pass by quickly – but it turns out to have a fair bit more staying power than Never Mind The ...

Van Halen

Ides Of March

Common Bond
Warner, 1971. Near Mint-
A great second set from Ides Of March – proof that the jazz rock combo had a lot more going on than just their famous single! The sextet hailed from the same scene as early Chicago (Chicago, of course!) – and have here a sound that shares plenty of the jazzy flourishes of that better-kn ... LP, Vinyl record album

Husker Du

Candy Apple Grey
Warner, 1986. Near Mint-
Husker Du's debut for Warner – just barely "bigger" and "more polished" soundwise than their pivotal SST canon – and all these years later stands as tall as one of the more timeless and influential rock albums to appear on a major label in the mid 80s! A couple of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dire Straits

Brothers In Arms
Warner, 1985. Very Good+
The album that catapulted Dire Straits into the bigger mainstream – thanks in part to some heavy play on MTV, and the group's inventive use of the video format! Titles include "Brothers In Arms", "Walk Of Life", "The Man's Too Strong", "One World", ... LP, Vinyl record album
