In the Great Battle of the Twin Cities back in the Eighties, it must have been hard to pick a side. For me it is - not that I'd want to, honestly - but the "Big Two" (Hüsker Dü & The Replacements) - made for some serious Midwest rock bad-assery back in my formative years.
This here collection is an early (live) boot with some excellent sound quality - the year is 1989, and we find the 'Mats out on the road in support of Tom Fuckin' Petty!?! I'd garner to say, it would have been great to see these guys open, mop the floor with their superior rock power, & then bail the fuck out afterwards to the dive bar down the street...
Bob Stinson was a fuckin' BEAST of a guitar player - Thank you.
