For Sale: Live at Maxwell's 1986

For Sale: Live at Maxwell's 1986 is a 2017 live album by American alternative rock band The Replacements. Recorded at the famous Maxwell's at the height of the band's commercial and creative arc, it is one of the few good recordings of their live performances. The band's only previous live album—1985's The Shit Hits the Fans—was a limited cassette tape release which features poor audio quality and several false starts and stops on songs. In 2007, bassist Tommy Stinson stated that "There are no good Replacements live recordings",[1] in part due to a lack of high-quality recordings and in part due to the band's notoriously sloppy performances due to alcohol abuse. The album was produced by Bob Mehr, who wrote the 2016 biography of the band Trouble Boys: The True Story of the Replacements.[1]


The album was recorded with a mobile recording studio as an attempt to market the band by Seymour Stein of Sire/Warner Bros. Records but was canceled after guitarist Bob Stinson left the band a few months later.[1]
