ROB SEZ: It's been too long since I've posted anything featuring the late, great Alex Chilton. A Replacements show with LX on several encores is a natural combo. 'Mats fans cannot forget the indelible "Alex Chilton", one of the band's signature songs. There are a couple of versions of this show floating around. This one is complete, and features the best sound quality available. HUGE THANKS to the Teddy Ballgame Archive and whoever shared this version of it.

ROB SEZ: I'm posting this in response to a request from Simon, who asked if I had any ROIOs of The Reivers, an Austin band that might be known to some followers of this blog. They were part of something called the "New Sincerity" movement — which didn't last very long, as far as I can tell. To my ears, the Reivers' music is a mix of fast folk and rock, with a touch of Americana thrown in. The band made some strong albums, which are worth seeking out. BIG THANKS to "crowflies" for recording this one and to Dennis O. for sharing. Please enjoy.
