Originally released in 1987, “Pleased To Meet Me” is the fifth studio album from American rock band, The Replacements. Formed in Minneapolis in 1979, The Replacements initially started out as a punk rock band but grew to be one of the pioneers of alternative rock. Pleased To Meet Me is the only album from the band recorded as a trio after guitarist Bob Stinson’s exit after the release of their fourth studio album “Tim”, and before the addition of guitarist Bob ‘Slim’ Dunlap.

The album is available here as a 3CD/1LP box set with The music presented in a 12 x 12 hardcover book with rare photos and a new historical liner note by Bob Mehr, author of Trouble Boys: The True Story of the Replacements.

The album received widespread critical acclaim with Rolling Stone describing it as “an album alive with the crackle of conflicting emotions and kamikaze rock & roll fire”, as well as Pitchfork rating it 9.3 out of 10. The album is often considered as one of the greatest albums of the 1980’s.
