Editorial Reviews

Rhino's remastered & expanded deluxe edition also features seven bonus tracks, six of them previously unreleased. A garage-punk classic, 1983's Hootenanny was The Replacements' third release and second album for Twin/Tone. Featuring the group's legendary founding line-up-lead singer/songwriter and guitarist Paul Westerberg, Chris Mars (drums) and brothers Bob and Tommy Stinson (guitar and bass, respectively)-on signature 'Mats' classics including 'Color Me Impressed' and 'Within Your Reach,' the brash and stylistically sprawling disc charted the group's growing stature and genre-smashing abandon.

Customer Reviews

They go into great detail on the album and the recording.
Morton
I bought this album in 1985 and I bought the cassette in 1989, and yesterday I bought the CD.

Their most underrated album and the one that made Let It Be and everything after it possible.

It must be noted that I've been a huge fan of this band for just about twenty years. So these reissues were something to look forward to (as they have been supposedly in the works for ten years). But unfortunately it's been the blind leading the blind as far as these reissues are concerned.

The music. Okay so the original vinyl album was the first album that I bought by this band. It still sounds great. So does the majority of this CD actually. However, as I get to the awesomely dramatic "Willpower" I notice that the beginning of the song is chopped off!! The song has forever started with the guitar line and then a "bu-dum" tom-tom part. Now there's no more guitar line intro and just part of the "dum". I don't know how they (Rhino/Ryko) can make BIG mistakes involving the transfers/remasters on three out of the four reissues. Stink (drop-out on the intro to "White & Lazy") and Let It Be (several edited tracks!) have the same issues involving either head-scratching mistakes or blatant editing of tracks. The majority of people buying these don't want revisionist history lessons - just the material as it has existed for over twenty years.

Who thought it was even an okay idea to put the stupid preface on the index to the bonus tracks (of someone walking down a hallway, enters door, slams door and the bonus material commences)? Not only is it plain corny and needless but it bleeds onto the beginning of the following track! They couldn't even execute a bad idea properly!

The bonus tracks are iffy at best as they left off the full band studio version of "Don't Get Married" and "Shook Me, Kill Me" as well (both fine outtakes from the album).

Paul W amd John Cusak nailed eighties angst. The tie in you say?
Well, today I saw 'Say Anything' for the first time in a long time, and if you listen closely about halfway through "Within your reach" is playing on the radio. And then, to drive it home at the end of the movie, when our hero is about leave the U.S. with his true love, the song is on the radio and as he splits the apartment he blasts the volume. A truly pivital moment in eighties cinema.
Westerberg and the Mats captured that wanting goofball in music the way Cusak did it in film. Oh, yeah, YOU MUST OWN THIS DISC!!!

Look, you either get this album or you don't. People who rate this album low don't get it - and consequently they don't understand what made the 'Mats a great band in the first place. To me, owning only the major label Replacements albums is like reading half of a novel. It's raw and unpolished - yeah, the sound quality is lacking, obviously - the 'Mats were 4 kids from Minneapolis on a small-time label back then. I wouldn't change a thing - consider it a timepiece, an artifact of an era. Great stuff.

The red-headed stepchild of replacement albums. Ever wish you could be sitting in a basement drinking a beer and listening to the best rock and roll band in America? Well you can. To me this album captures the mats with their guard down. This album was just a joke, "label wants a hit, and we don't give a shit", right? Just imagine Westerberg coming into the studio with "hospital" and Bob letting loose with the riffs, probably recorded in one take. Tommy's comments after "Treatment Bound" The kid was 15 years old for chrissake! Chris Mars lead on "hootenanny" is a small hint of his enormous talent and things to come. I bought this album in 1985 and I bought the cassette in 1989, and yesterday I bought the CD. The more i listen to the mats the more i realize how important Bob Stinson was to their sound and he is in pure form on Hootenanny. Isnt it funny that an album put out 17 years ago as an afterthought is still better then anything else out there today? Amazing.

For those of us hoping that the Ryko/Rhino would give the Replacements the same treatment they gave Elvis Costello, HOOTENANY and their other reissues are something of a disappointment.

The sound is great, no question. But there are two main shortcomings. First, there is too much wasted room on these discs. With the bonus material, HOOT clocks in at 49 minutes. WTF. With all the boots extant from throughout the 'Mats career, there is a literal goldmine of material out there that could have been included to get these timings closer to 80 minutes -- and, more importantly, give a more complete picture of what the Replacements were all about. Without some chunk of concurrent live material, there is something important missing. For those of us lucky to have seen the band live over the years, that void is all the more glaring.

Second, the liner notes are mediocre to downright bad. There are some great bits from Peter Jesperson. HOOT's are decent. The LET IT BE essay is a navel-staring disaster. How anyone could have let that stand as a "tribute" to one of the greatest albums in rock history is beyond me. Again, unlike the gold standard that both Ryko and certainly Rhino had set with their reissues of Costello's work, there is absolutely no input from the artists themselves. No words/thoughts/remembrances from Paul, Tommy, or Chris. And maybe this was their choice. But it certainly makes for a less-than-definitive reissue of this work.

The music does sound great. Bottom line. And I don't mind paying a little more for a great repackaging of important music -- and both Ryko and Rhino have done this very well in the past. Unfortunately, this effort doesn't live up to that same standard.
