On the ladder of success...

Notes: “Without much warning, Westerberg jumped into the photo pit and began playing “Left of the Dial” with his back to the audience, before turning around for the final verse, locking eyes with the diehards on the barrier as they sang the closing lines of “And if I don’t see ya, in a long, long while/I’ll try to find you/Left of the dial” together in ragged unison. It was an unplanned, highly unorthodox, and highly affective move on Westerberg’s part, but at the end of the day, that’s what the Replacements were all about.”  - KEXP, Seattle
