The Replacements: Paul Westerberg (vocals, guitar, lap steel, mandolin, piano, percussion); Bob Stinson (guitar); Tommy Stinson (bass, background vocals); Chris Mars (drums, maracas).

Additional personnel: Peter Buck (guitar); Chan Poling (piano).
Producers: Steve Fjelstad, Paul Westerberg, Peter Jesperson.
Recorded at Blackberry Way Studios, Minneapolis, Minnesota.
All tracks have been digitally remastered.
The Replacements were one of America's greatest bands of the 80s, irrespective of genre, though they received thin acknowledgement outside of informed critics during their lifetime. LET IT BE demonstrates why they drove fans to devotion and critics to supplication. It was 1984, and the Replacements had left behind their sonic links to the Minneapolis punk scene. In particular, Paul Westerberg's songs had lost the timerity of old and he was increasingly willing to tackle subjects head on - "Unsatisfied" is arguably the best song he ever wrote. However profundity aside, there is also a huge sense of fun about LET IT BE, and even throwaway material like "Gary's Got A Boner," and their cover of Kiss's "Black Diamond," is enormous fun.
