Single from Tim

Dedicated to Trace Hull
A man who knows way too much about The Replacements!

Tim is the fourth album from The Replacements and their first for Sire Records. At the production controls was Tommy Ramone.

On Wikipedia it says: Stylistically, the album shows Paul Westerberg's diverse influences, including Alex Chilton's Big Star on "Hold My Life," Roy Orbison and Duane Eddy on "Swingin Party" and Nick Lowe on "Kiss Me on the Bus"

I thought that was quite an interesting point because listening to the album for the first time in years I clearly could also hear  a real influence of The Clash in there as well (some similar sounds to stuff The Clash were doing with things like Gates of The West, Groovy Times etc), I could be wrong of course - my ears though have not often failed me! 

It's a cracking wee album to pull off the shelf and give a blast to. I have a few albums of theirs but don't really know an awful lot about them except they come from a place that has so much musical history in many different genres - Minneapolis.
