The Replacements – LOUIE of the Week

I stumbled over an extremely rare archival recording by The Replacements doing THE SONG live in Chicago during their semi-recent reunion tour in 2015. It’s definitely NOT a soundboard recording, and it’s not even 20 seconds long… but hey, it’s f-in’ LOUIE LOUIE by the Replacements!!

A rarity? I’d say so….

As we hear a voice afterwards (probably Tommy) saying “That’s going to cost you extra!”

This little mini-LOUIE took place between “The Ledge” and “I’ll Be You” at the Replacements performance on April 29, 2015 at the Riviera Theater in Chicago, Illinois, USA.

Big thanks to the taper known as “Lucca” for capturing this minimalist rendition and sharing it within trader circles!

The photo of the Riviera Theater marquee was taken by Mikey Holland, who wrote a little online essay entitled “Tattoos, Booze, and No Way To Lose: Mikey Holland spends a week chasing the Replacements.”

The image of the Replacements came from a YouTube video shared by “seijinlee.” As a matter of fact, it’s from a clip of the two songs the band did right before tackling LOUIE

(which is right below this very sentence)
