The Replacements - Can’t Hardly Wait (Official Music Video)


Published on 2 months ago

PLEASED TO MEET ME (DELUXE EDITION) is now available as a 3-CD / 1-LP boxed set and digitally. Features the newly remastered classic album along with 29 tracks of unreleased material, including demos, rough mixes, and outtakes. Get your copy here: https://Rhino.lnk.to/pleasedtomeetme

The making of Pleased To Meet Me was a transformative journey for The Replacements, one that began with the combustible Minneapolis combo on the brink of collapse and culminated in one of the definitive albums of the band’s career. That transformation is chronicled in-depth on the group’s latest 3-CD / 1-LP boxed set, PLEASED TO MEET ME (DELUXE EDITION).

More than half of the music (29 of the 55 tracks) on this Deluxe Edition 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.

Pleased To Meet Me was recorded over three months at Ardent Studios in Memphis with legendary producer Jim Dickinson before it debuted in April 1987. The collection opens with a newly remastered version of the original 11-track album along with a selection of B-sides and a version of “Can’t Hardly Wait” that was remixed by Jimmy Iovine. All of the music included in this boxed set has been remastered by Justin Perkins, who remastered the band’s widely acclaimed 2019 boxed set, Dead Man’s Pop.

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. The first seven of these demos represent the last recordings made by all four original members of The Replacements. After those demo sessions stalled out, singer/guitarist Westerberg, bassist Tommy Stinson, and drummer Chris Mars made the painful decision to part ways with lead guitarist Stinson after recording five albums together.

The disc’s remaining eight demos feature the band as a trio and include “Shooting Dirty Pool,” two versions of “Kick It In,” and “Even If It’s Cheap,” whose opening line (“Pleased to meet me/the pleasure’s all yours”) would ultimately inspire the title of the album.

The collection’s final disc features 13 previously unreleased rough mixes by studio engineer John Hampton that include the majority of the album along with non-album tracks like “Election Day” and “Birthday Gal.” These rough mixes are also featured on the 180-gram vinyl record included in the set.

Rounding out the collection are several unreleased tracks (Westerberg’s “Run For The Country” and “Learn How To Fail,” Stinson’s “Trouble On The Way”) along with a selection of outtakes (“Beer For Breakfast” and “I Don’t Know”) that debuted on the 1997 compilation, All For Nothing/Nothing For All.

Always liked this song. I might be in the minority however in saying that the Tim version is better.

Never knew there was a video for this. Now that I have watched it I can see why it was rarely played on MTV. Nonetheless a great song and purists be damned. I still love Pleased to Meet Me and Don’t tell a Soul. From Let it Be to Pleased to Meet Me this was the best band in America.

Never was a Bob Mould or Hüsker Dü fan - just couldn't get into them. And I CAN'T STAND Semisonic, but, I LOVED Trip Shakespere. With that said, for this Minnesota native anyway, The Replacments will always and forever remain the best f'ing Minnesota band ever. Ok, Prince, is Prince, he's a friction' genius! I get it. But as far as a regular 'ol rock and roll/pop/punk band - it's the 'Mats for me.

What's the street date? For the extra super duper deluxe box set of 10,408 bonus tracks from the eighties, on that 10 track album you paid too much for in the first place? Can't hardly wait!

Honestly, I prefer this to music to ones since like 1998-present. I like simple productions of the many videos in the 80's and early 90's over today where they do too much, so much gloss

iam somewhat familiar with the replacements they had a couple of breakthrough hits including ill be you which mtv gave a major push and radio followed but unfortunately the group split up and started doing solo projects

This idea for a music video has gotten rather old. Nuff of it. A let down after the countdown. A video with a retrospective treatment would have been a much option. Looking forward to the remaster though. Can't hardly wait.
