More than half of the music (29 of the 55 tracks) on this definitive Pleased to Meet Me box set has never been released, including demos, rough mixes, and outtakes as well as Bob Stinson’s last recordings with The Replacements from 1986. The music is presented in a 12 x 12 hardcover book loaded with dozens of rarely seen photos, along with a detailed history of the Pleased To Meet Me era written by Bob Mehr, who authored The New York Times bestseller Trouble Boys: The True Story of the Replacements. Mehr, together with Rhino’s Jason Jones, produced this new collection.
