I’ll just say he should be very proud of “Skyway” and omit the urge to comment (again) on male silliness. Reading Bob Mehr’s book a few months ago made me lean more in the direction of answering “No” to that question. . This review can also be found on my blog. Learn how your comment data is processed. I also remember “Nightclub Jitters” being played sloppily on purpose, which was funny, but it was still musical. I can’t comment on the comparison as I’ve never heard Gabriel’s licks or Prince Gabe on the trumpet, but even from listening to this too-small sample I can tell that Kirby was one hell of a sax player. When he sings, “I’m the boy they can’t ignore/For the first time in my life, I’m sure,” he knows that all the attention he’s receiving now is as utterly impersonal as the lack of attention paid to him in his brief existence. Much was made of it being a digital recording, which in 1987 was seen … 342 Comments. The latest in Rhino’s years-long reissue campaign of the Replacements’ discography, Pleased to Meet Me lacks the revelatory quality of some other releases. Douglas spends most of the time in minimalist mode, strengthening the bottom, but when he finally gets his place in the sun (after the countdown pause in the middle and on the fade), his wild solos sync perfectly with the drunken exuberance of the band. The remaining three-person lineup rocks as hard as they ever did, but though the album received its fair share of critical accolades, Pleased to Meet Me sold only slightly better than Tim (#131 on the Billboard charts compared to #189). Paul Westerberg would write several songs about suicide, but “The Ledge” was by far the most controversial. The joy generated by that fade makes “Alex Chilton” a leading contender for that all-important song I’m going to play at full blast when this fucking coronavirus shit finally comes to an end. Every Replacements record is extraordinary in its way, but none exemplifies their garbage-to-grandeur alchemy like Pleased To Meet Me, which rocks like early Kinks, swaggers like T. … 4.8 out of 5 stars 71. I’m in love with that song.”. I’m not referring to the weather when I tell you that I think Minneapolis is a pretty cool city, and one of the coolest things about it is the Skyway, now consisting of 9.5 miles of second-floor enclosed walkways that connect the commercial and entertainment highlights, from stores to hotels to sports venues. I’ve been cooped up in the house too long. 4.5 superb. Imhotep was bankrolled by the pharaoh Djoser; Michelangelo by Pope Julius II; Shakespeare was bound the 3rd Earl of Southhampton. ( Log Out /  Uh, oh. It was always too cold inside. But as he spit out the  words again to Rieger, it went far deeper. All my Replacements music was alphabetized under T except that one. I went to a Twins game when they were still in the Metrodome (horrid place) and it was unlike any experience I’d ever had in a ballpark—everyone seemed to be so delighted to be there, rooting for the home team, if they don’t win it’s a shame kind of vibe. The sweet smell that they adore, I think I’d rather smother, Though he’s describing the same deal-with-the-devil dynamic depicted on the cover, to hear him sing it lets you know how strongly he felt it. As luck would have it, Kirby passed away a few weeks after the recording sessions, so I’m hoping he went to heaven and challenged Gabriel to a cutting contest. For that reason alone, Minneapolis wins my vote as the most thoughtful and considerate city in the USA. (Mehr).” Though the background “singers” are as sloppy as a poorly aimed-ejaculation, Paul Westerberg is on full-throated fire, a condition most apparent when the voices of his bandmates disappear on the chorus: One foot in the door, the other one in the gutter Does anyone name their kid Roscoe anymore? Perfection is the most pernicious lie of all, and the quest to achieve perfection is the ultimate fool’s errand. In stock on November 18, 2020.

When Westerberg said it to Jim Dickinson (producer), it was a question of trust; as he acted it out with the record company, it was a matter of insecurity. With dogmatic hard rocker Bob Stinson out of the band, Westerberg felt more comfortable expanding his songwriting playing field with touches of soul, folk and (most noticeably) cocktail hour accompaniment. After he sees the girl walking high up in the Skyway, he turns his attention to his appearance: “In my stupid hat and gloves . In spite of some über-Eighties, ultra-reverberated production (which still sounds better than their next album, Don’t Tell a Soul), the record was the band’s last moment of greatness. Note that this is a fantasy, not a confession: I was only five years old when Prince Gabe left in all his glory, so don’t try to pin his collapse on me. Mehr, together with Rhino’s Jason Jones, produced this new collection. Change ), You are commenting using your Google account. A: We Are Devo! Later in the chapter covering Pleased to Meet Me, producer Jim Dickinson recalled that “When we started, ‘art’ was a word he wouldn’t let me use . The Replacements Pleased To Meet Me. Please try again later. Sign up for our newsletter. April 18, 2020. Doh! Musically, it’s easily the tightest song on the album, featuring an exceptionally sensitive and emotionally expansive performance from Westerberg; lyrically, Westerberg does a marvelous job by having his suicidal narrator comment on the indifference that surrounds him while standing on the ledge (“Wind blows cold from the west/I smell coffee, I smell doughnuts for the press”) as opposed to reciting a long litany of grievances or delving into excessive self-pity. Being difficult was a key part of who they were. It was noted that Replacements fans are not like the Replacements, and they never were. The Replacements turned out to be one of the best bands to never have a Top 20 single or Top 20 album—pretty solid evidence that the sellout wasn’t much of a sellout. The paradox couldn’t be starker. According to Mehr, Tommy Stinson heard that Prince Gabe had died “fucking a whore,” adding, in what were no doubt rapturous tones, “That’s the way we wanted to go out. Audio CD. " Pleased to Meet Me is the finest record The Replacements ever made," writes The Current's David Campbell. The quirky lyrics certainly jibe with the quirky subject of the tribute, at one point “Checkin’ his stash by the trash at St. Mark’s Place,” then “Runnin’ ’round the house, Mickey Mouse and the Tarot cards/Falling asleep with a flop pop video on.” But the most memorable and poignant lyrics are saved for the remarkable chorus, a wish for a different world in which the obscure Mr. Chilton is lifted out of oblivion and into the hearts of children everywhere: Children by the million sing for Alex Chilton when he comes ’round What takes the song to another level is the fade, where Westerberg repeats the line “I’m in love. The feeling isn’t so much discomfort as “what-the-hell, it-is-what-it-is, this-far-and-no-further.”. I wanna be the platinum blonde in that bar consuming Pall Malls and vodka martinis (vodka from the well, of course), blowing off the soldiers in town on a weekend pass and the lonely conventioneers so desperate for a roll in the hay that they’ll bang a platinum blonde way past her prime sitting in a place that’s way past its prime listening to musicians who sound like they’re way past their prime. I’ve come to grips with the fact that I’m an artist. I’m not a hoodlum. Essentially, Westerberg poses a series of questions to which his bandmates usually respond with “I don’t know.” An amateur detective would put two and two together and conclude that the opening laughter combined with poorly-articulated responses indicates that the boys were probably shit-faced drunk at the time, a daily reality that Dickinson learned to work with. He said, “If ‘Alex Chilton’ had been called ‘Buddy Holly,’ it could’ve been the Weezer song.” Litt seemed to be implying that the Replacements should have done something like that, but I think it would have been all wrong. Pleased to Meet Me should have ended with “Skyway,” but instead we get the producer-dominated “Can’t Hardly Wait.” This not-much-of-a-song had been around for a while, but The Replacements never found a satisfying arrangement. If you gotta go, you wanna go out onstage or fucking.”. Just try to imagine Murrow intoning that line as if he were opening one of his broadcasts from the scene of The Blitz: “This . The ache in Westerberg’s voice feels deeper on several of the songs, and the way the group could settle into a jam, whether as a four-or three–piece, sounds easier. “That” is the simple truth that nearly every artist in history has at one time or another sold out to the (usually) men with the money. For their second major label album, fifth overall, first without founding member Bob Stinson, and lone offering as a trio, the 'Mats called upon Jim Dickinson. So true. While all of the tracks are good they aren't all great, as "Let It Be" and "Tim" were. Like Lennon after the “more popular than Jesus” brouhaha, Westerberg had to defend the song repeatedly in interviews; unlike The Beatles, The Replacements were not the most popular band in the history of the universe. Sexy, sinuous and sensitive wins out over lean and hungry every time. Had they ever written something as catchy as “Surrender,” they would’ve been too embarrassed to play it in public. Internal strife also wasn’t helping things much. . Westerberg’s vocal starts out as if someone had nudged him out of a snooze, and remains a low-volume, low-energy effort throughout. Devo – Q: Are We Not Men? For some necessary clarification, when I use the term classic rock I don't mean the Eagles or the Rolling Stones or whatever the media is calling "classic" now. And he wasn’t willing to put himself on the line emotionally. Label and pressing variation, '®' in Sire label logos, differs from The Replacements - Pleased To Meet Me which has 'TM' in label logos and embossed 'A' on labels. Having now reviewed three Replacements albums and listened to all the others, I can safely say there never was nor should there have ever been a perfect Replacements album. The producer and Memphis mainstay entered the picture after abortive demo… The limited supporting harmonies are a nice touch, adding a bit of sweetness to balance the power chord attack without softening it. Jim Dickinson took over and added horns in all the wrong places and (gasp) strings to a song that simply couldn’t handle their weightiness. The opening track manages to affirm their disdain for commercialism and their rejection of the DiMaggio Doctrine while confirming their ability to dish out nasty, bad-ass rock ‘n’ roll without Bob Stinson lending a hand. Chilton did work with The Replacements on a few demos, but none of the recordings saw the light of day at the time. You don’t have to be like them in order to relate to them. When compared to the rest of the band's output, "Pleased to Meet Me" is somewhat disappointing. Enter your email below to be the first to hear about new releases, upcoming events, and more from Rhino. At the end of the song, I’ll say to the band, “That was real nice, boys. Perhaps the best review I have read about Pleased To Meet Me comes from David Fricke (Rolling Stone Magazine) who gave it a glowing review, saying "Tracks like "I.O.U." It has a unique ring to it. Your comment about the fans being of a different ilk than the band rings true because I have a hard time associating The Replacements with my experience of Minneapolis—civic-minded nice people who smile a lot. And the country-rocking “Even If It’s Cheap” is a nice addition, if only to hear Tommy Stinson sing the album title: “Pleased to meet me, the pleasure’s all mine, I’ve seen you here before.” The winking nature of the way he sings the verse and the bridge that sounds a bit like “Jesse’s Girl” maybe explain why it didn’t make it much farther. Shortly after a particularly disastrous Replacements performance, Russ Rieger, the head honcho of their management company, paid Westerberg a visit: The next day, at the band’s hotel, Rieger got into a heated discussion with Westerberg, telling him, “This car-crash mentality is something you have to move away from. The Associated Press reported that Kirby died after he had “collapsed at home,” which sounds like journo-speak for dying in the middle of a glorious ejaculation. . What’s that song? In gearing up for their sophomore major label album the band began recording demos in a hometown studio. They sing “I’m in love. Pleased to Meet Me starts off strong with "I.O.U", a song that frequently exposes the Replacements' deep roots in classic rock. The Replacements' Pleased to Meet Me marked the moment when Minneapolis met Memphis. Pleased To Meet Me is the critically acclaimed fifth studio album by the American rock band The Replacements. What’s that song? You write these amazing songs. … When I hear Westerberg sing, “Gallo or Muscatel, either one would be just swell,” I think, “Disgusting!” And when I hear him categorize all red wine into a single bucket like there’s no difference between Gamay, Pinot and Grenache, I think, “The man’s an idiot.” In any case, the song doesn’t feel quite right to me—they seem to be rocking without a whole lot of underlying commitment and it comes through as “forced enthusiasm.” Given my resistance to this song, those of you who are less anal about wine are free to provide an alternative point of view. In today’s world, painters sell out to gallery owners, authors to publishing houses and musicians to media companies. For better AND for worse. “For him there was no middle ground,” said Rieger. Originally from San Francisco, I am now a French/EU citizen living in Nice. Rarely in the annals of music history has an album cover said so much. Much better version—the lead guitar is ripping. The first seven of these demos represent the last recordings made by all four original members of The Replacements. I’ve often wondered whether the Replacements could have been not only more popular but also a better band if they had been more willing to compromise. I think that underlines the fact that the appeal of the Replacements is not so much their outrageousness as just the fact that they were, in their own way, very genuine. 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. It was all or nothing.”. £11.19. They may be slightly off-center, but for the most part they are decent people with college degrees and jobs. “I just can’t fuckin’ mean it every night.”, Westerberg viewed performing, as he did everything, in stark black-and-white terms. . We want to hear from you! “IOU NOTHING,” penned Iggy, which Westerberg thought “was the coolest thing in the world.” (Mehr) While fans may interpret that act as cold rather than cool, it helped Westerberg clarify the attitude of an artist towards admirers: if you don’t maintain a healthy distance, you run the risk of letting them define you and deflect you from your artistic trajectory. You can also follow the Album of the Day - a classic album presented in its entirety. His three Big Star albums and the fabulous anti-masterpiece Like Flies on Sherbert didn’t do dick as far as the charts were concerned but turned out to be a source of inspiration for bands driving the alt-rock/indie movements in the ’80s and ’90s. Original guitarist Bob Stinson was ousted from the band when it was time to record Pleased to Meet Me. And the strings on the original “Can’t Hardly Wait” stepped on the dropout when Westerberg sings the title. Album Review, Altrockchick, Music Review. For years I pretended I wasn’t. Speaking of degrees of shame, Westerberg recorded this alone, early in the morning before his mates had recovered from the nightly bender, because he didn’t want them to see him as soft. ( Log Out /  This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. O. U.” came from none other than Iggy Pop, who became Westerberg’s hero when he witnessed an interchange between Iggy and a fan asking for an autograph. I’m a fucking artist. But they were never going to be Cheap Trick. Even the collection’s rough mixes — usually the most over larded part of a box set — offer new insights. When you’ve grown up in a certain place and have become thoroughly familiar with the sights, you tend to see patterns instead of details. He could live with drunken insouciance or bored incompetence, so long as it was real. The arrangement is one of blessed simplicity: acoustic guitar enhanced with echoing reverb and just a touch of vibraphone. Even the demos they cut as a three-piece show how playful they could be; the two versions of Westerberg’s anti-TV screed “Kick It In” demonstrate how they could give a song a facelift on a whim, playing it straight on the first demo and adding bongos and more guitar textures to the second. Mehr describes the cover as “A Faustian handshake between a scruffy rock-and-roller, played by Westerberg, and a bejeweled record company executive.” Given his fuck-the-fans orientation, it is doubtful that Westerberg designed the cover to serve as a heads-up to the fan base, a la “Hey, I’ve sold out to the establishment, but I’m still me.” It is more likely that the cover depicts Westerberg looking at his reflection in the mirror and facing the reality of his situation. Anyway, Westerberg remained an admirer, deciding to transform a song he’d been working on with the curious title “George from Outer Space” into a tribute to the underappreciated Chilton. The second disc explores the creative process behind Pleased To Meet Me with 15 demos, 11 of which are unreleased, that were recorded at Blackberry Way Studios in Minneapolis during the summer of 1986. But mostly I just happen to like the tune, and I think it sounds great. yep . As for the album: I enjoyed your analysis of side one, but I like side two a lot more than you do. They did not have the common touch. Pleased to Meet Me was acclaimed by music critics. This is how music creates atmosphere, and this is one atmosphere I want to experience! Which the world sorely needs to be. . “I Don’t Know” is a hard-driving update on the band’s current status featuring Westerberg on the calls and Tommy Stinson and Mars on the responses. Let’s hit the reset button. Let me buy you a drink.” Then I’d take them to my shag-carpeted apartment and fuck them all, taking care to ensure that the three young’uns would survive the experience. It’s a “wow” moment guaranteed to get you out of your seat, shake your fanny and clap like there’s no tomorrow. Unlike, say, the Velvet Underground, who turned into just as wonderful a group when John Cale was axed, the Replacements lost a good bit of steam once the elder Stinson was gone. ... but come on. Yes, I’ve taken a lot of heat for my opinion of “Can’t Wait.” Perhaps if I heard a stripped-down version I’d like it better, but Dickinson’s enhancements really turn me off.

The cover image of The Replacements' 5th studio collection is a telling one: PLEASED TO MEET ME has one foot in the door and the other one in the gutter, with the spirit of the Minneapolis band's punk roots given a newfound polish and a willingness to explore other genres. The kudos to Jim Dickinson keep on comin’ with his decision to bring it Edward “Prince Gabe” Kirby to play alto sax on “Nightclub Jitters.” Kirby was a Beale Street fixture for five decades who earned his nickname because someone told him he played trumpet like the angel Gabriel.

The Replacements | Pleased to Meet Me-Deluxe Edition | (Rhino/Sire) 4 out of 5 stars. Taken as a whole — along with Replacements’ biographer Bob Mehr’s ever-excellent liner notes (which shed some light on Bob Stinson’s departure) — the holistic skyway-view of the album shows a band that was a little looser than they would want to let on.
