The Replacements - Let It Be / by Rollie Agado

Attended a show last night that I need to write up a proper review for that got me thinking about the Replacements...

Did you know that they name checked the Beatles Album - Let It Be?   It was their way of saying "nothing is sacred".

The band last night (Nate Coles and the Blue Diamond Band) hail from Minnesota and that got me to thinking about the Replacements so I listened to Let it Be today...

I'm tempted to write 5,000 words on why I love this album so much, but I'm completely spent right now.  I didn't get enough sleep last night and I pulled an elaborate prank that involves the stealing a Spirit Stick and placing said stick on Craigslist... more on that tomorrow.

In the meantime... here's a handful of tracks from Let it Be that you should listen to.
