    The Replacements are celebrating the 40th anniversary of their debut album, Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash, with a deluxe edition reissue.

    Due out October 22th via Rhino, the new set boasts 100 tracks, 67 of which are previously unreleased rough mixes, alternate takes, and more. Along with the 4xCD/1xLP set comes a 12×12 hardcover book with rare photos and liner notes from Replacements biographer Bob Mehr and their former manager Peter Jesperson.

    In addition to remasters of the album’s original tracklist, Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash (Deluxe Edition) includes some of the Minneapolis band’s earliest demos as a burgeoning punk act.

    You can also hear the first professional live recording of the band, taken in January 1981 at Minneapolis’ iconic 7th St. Entry. That setlist includes covers of The Heartbreakers’ “I Wanna Be Loved,” Slade’s “My Town,” The Kinks’ “All Day and All of the Night,” Dave Edmunds’ “Trouble Boys,” and others.

    Preorders are ongoing now, with each order including an exclusive reproduction of the flyer from that 7th St. Entry show. See the tracklist to Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash (Deluxe Edition) below.

    Last year, The Replacements reissued their 1987 classic Pleased to Meet Me. As of last summer, filmmaker Josh Boone has a biopic on the ‘Mats in the works.
