Paul Westerberg’s sophomore solo set ‘Eventually’ to make vinyl debut in January

Paul Westerberg, 'Eventually'

It’s a great time to be a vinyl-loving ‘Mats fan: Following the first-ever U.S. vinyl release of The Replacements’ final album, 1990′s All Shook Down, on Record Store Day’s Black Friday later this month comes word that bandleader Paul Westerberg’s second solo effort, 1996’s Eventually, also will make its debut on vinyl early next year.

Plain Recordings will release an 180-gram audiophile pressing of the 12-track record, with a four-color printed inner sleeve, on Jan. 21 — and the label tells Slicing Up Eyeballs that a similar pressing of  Westerberg’s solo debut, 1993’s 14 Songs, also is in the works.

Eventually was produced by Brendan O’Brien and Lou Giordano, and found Westerberg addressing the death of ex-bandmate Bob Stinson on “Good Day,” and also featured an appearance by another former — and now, once again, current — bandmate, Tommy Stinson, on “Trumpet Clip.”

The new pressing can be pre-ordered via Runt.






  1. It’s a shame that Plain’s pressings are so terrible. They just slap a digital master onto vinyl.

  2. Agreed. I was excited for 15 seconds until I read it was a Plain reissue. I won’t buy anything on that label.

  3. Wish I had listened to the above commenters. They were right – mastering job is dreadful. Terribly disappointing.
