Album: The Old New Me
. . .
The other thing that the Replacements had in common with the Beatles (besides the Beatles stealing an album title from them) is that shortly after their breakup, Paul, Tommy, Slim and Chris all released solo albums. Which, looking back, is kinda weird, give that much of the Replacements reputation at the time rested on the songwriting of Paul Westerberg. That said, each of the solo albums contained individual tracks good enough that you could imagine a killer Replacements album being assembled from them.
Which I did, of course. Back when I wrote about Paul Westerberg’s “Knockin’ On Mine,” I came up with World Class Fad, the final Replacements album, featuring songs from all four of them, one of the key ones being Slim Dunlap’s “Rockin’ Here Tonight.”
