Some 33 years later, The Replacements have finally made a video for Pleased To Meet Me lead-off single “Can’t Hardly Wait” — and it’s been assembled from footage originally shot for the banned-from-MTV clip for “The Ledge” then used for follow-up video “Alex Chilton.”
The new video is to promote the Oct. 9 release of Pleased To Meet Me: Deluxe Edition, a 3CD/1LP edition of the band’s fifth album stuffed with 29 previously unreleased demos, rough mixes and outtakes — including Bob Stinson’s final recordings with the ‘Mats. It can be pre-ordered now via Amazon.com.
