Scott DOES like Don't Tell A Soul. I do, too (even though I'm a bit embarrassed to admit it).
The Rhino re-issues don't sound that great, either. They're not bad, but they're not the revelation I was hoping for. Pretty disappointing. Of course, maybe the original releases didn't sound that great either.
The trick is, I don't see any used Replacements records often (except Don't Tell a Soul --though Goner had an old copy of Pleased to Meet Me a few weeks ago), and I don't know if you'll get a better price on Ebay...even on a used, standard copy in VG condition.
My copies of Let It Be and Hootenanny sound EXCELLENT, though. I wish all records sounded that good.
