Jimbo Mathus Performs the Replacements' Let It Be
The thing I always loved about the Replacements was that, behind their punk attitude, Paul Westerberg & co. wrote songs with pretty melodies. Jimbo Mathus brings out the beauty in those melodies with his spare, bluesy acoustic guitar arrangements. A fine producer in his own right (Buddy Guy, Squirrel Nut Zippers, etc), JImbo turned over the production duties here to Eric Ambel, whose deft touch served the arrangements and the melodies perfectly. If you're a 'Mats fan, a blues fan, a guitar fan, or a Roscoe fan, you'll love it. If you're none of those things, well, I pity you.
As a fan of the Replacements, I gotta say I really enjoyed this version of Let It Be. This chill take on classic punk rock makes for a nice change of pace
Intimate sweet sounds
This project immediately captivates the listener with its sweet, familiar rendition of the much-loved Replacements album. The production quality is absolutely pristine; the guitar tone is enchanting; and the guitar playing is as tender and moving as it gets. The Paul Westerberg songs are especially well done. This album is essential for any Replacements, Jimbo Mathus, or Eric Ambel fan.
