The Replacements, 'I'll Be You'

Reissuing old albums in deluxe vinyl pressings is all the rage these days, but it’s not often you see what online wax retailer Insound is doing: reissuing a pair of classic 7-inches from The Replacements and Ramones.

On June 9, the Web shop will kick off a new series of reissued punk and indie 45s by releasing limited-edition reprints of the Replacements’ 1989 single “I’ll Be You” — with a b-side featuring Tom Waits — and the Ramones’ 1977 “California Sun” single.

Each title will be limited to 1,000 copies and will feature the original tracklisting and artwork. Both sell for $7.99 apiece; customers will be limited to five copies each.

The Ramones reissue, featuring tracks recorded at L.A.’s Roxy on July 12, 1976,  is certainly a bargain; this site has a copy of the original Japanese pressing priced at $670.
