Replacements’ Gordon Lightfoot Cover ‘I’m Not Sayin” Surfaces Online
Some Replacements fans recently payed upwards of $10,000 to get their hands on the band’s new comeback EP, ‘Songs for Slim,’ and for good reason: Not only did it feature the first recordings from Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson in a long, long time, but it also raised money for ailing ex-‘Mats guitarist Slim Dunlap, who was hospitalized last year following a stroke and now requires constant (and very costly) medical care.
‘Songs for Slim’ was issued in a limited edition of 250, hence those sky-high prices, but now you can hear it without breaking the bank. ‘I’m Not Sayin” is a cover of a Gordon Lightfoot song (although you may be more likely to remember Nico’s version), and it’s one of five tunes on the EP, which will be available digitally on March 5 at a much lower price. But you can’t get cheaper than free, so check out ‘I’m Not Sayin” via Pitchfork here or by clicking the big button directly below (they go to the same place).
