The Replacements Songs For Slim
The Replacements
Songs For Slim EP
Special Limited Edition 10"

In September 2012, Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson reunited and entered Flowers Studio in Minneapolis (with Kevin Bowe on guitar and Peter Anderson on drums) to record Slim’s song “Busted Up.” Knocked out by the result, they roared through a few more numbers including Leon Payne's (by way of Hank Williams) "Lost Highway," Gordon Lightfoot’s (by way of Nico) “I’m Not Sayin',” and “Everything’s Coming Up Roses” from the Broadway show Gypsy. Original Replacements drummer Chris Mars had already recorded a scorching one-man-band version of Slim’s “Radio Hook Word Hit,” so all 5 tracks were combined onto an EP to launch the Songs For Slim series.

This is the first new Replacements release since 1990's All Shook Down. Only 250 numbered 10” vinyl EPs were made and were auctioned off in January 2013. 

Additional features include:
