I’m not a huge Rolling Stone fan but they got it right with a 2004 article about The Replacements titled “ The Replacements: The Greatest Band That Never Was” . This is as good a summation of The Mats there is

I love The Replacements and ‘Hootenanny ‘ is one of the reasons why , this album represents a little bit of everything that The Replacements were about

You’ve got straight up punk from their early incarcerations ( “Run In” ) , sweet Indi tunes ALA ‘Tim’ ( “Colour Me Impressed “) , tracks that downright blow ( “Willpower “) , goofy ( “Take Me To The Hospital” , “Buck Hill”) , tongue-in-cheek (the Beatles inspired “Mr Whirly “) the downright inspired (“Lovelines “ taken directly from a newspaper classified section) and the obligatory WTF moment (“ Treatment Bound”)

If I was ever asked to recommend where to begin on a Replacements discovery I’d point them immediately to ‘Hootenanny ‘ it’s got a little bit of everything

Finally “Treatment Bound” perfectly sums up The Replacements and it goes like this

‘We’re gettin no place as fast as we can’
‘Label wants a hit and we don’t give a shit’

Amen to that it’s why I adore this band

Clearly The Replacements were just trying to make a fun record here, and they succeed. But musically it isn't strong. Its significance is that it alerted people to what would become one of the biggest alt-rock bands of the 80s.

And underwhelming album given that this is the band that made Let It Be and Tim, but still a very enjoyable listen nonetheless. It's very clearly a transition between the largely punk Sorry Ma and the more varied Let It Be, though it does lean more towards the latter. Listening to it again you can hear a lot of what was to come in songs like Within Your Reach and Buck Hill (which is almost like a demo of Seen Your Video).

This is the sound of the band pleasing themselves with very little concern of pleasing a potential audience - Color Me and Impressed and Within Your Reach - proved Paul cared, just a little. Arguments have been made as to whether this aspect is either a virtue or failing of the record. I consider myself part of the former. This is the most freewheeling indie rock record ever recorded.
