 It is no secret that Shyboy Tim and I are head over heels in love with The Replacements. Like every other Mats fan out there we were excited to hear the news that Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson were going to release an EP of covers, along with a track by Chris Mars in order to help raise funds for Slim Dunlap's medical bills. Now that the auction sales are over New West will be selling digital downloads of the album on March 5th, and the vinyl will be available April 16th. Pitchfork has one of the songs on their website to preview - and it is pretty fantastic!

The original is a tune by Gordon Lightfoot, if you'd like to compare and contrast.

And before The Mats rocked this tune, Nico tackled it as well.
