Paul westerberg knocking on mine


14 Songs is the first official solo album from Paul Westerberg, former leader of The Replacements. In many ways, it's his second solo album, given that the final Replacements album, All Shook Down, was heavily packed with session musicians and marginalized the other three band members.

Contents

The album features contributions from Ian McLagan, former keyboardist for the Faces, a band that Westerberg has often cited as a favorite.

In an interview included with a special edition of the album, he explained that he started the record jamming with drummer Josh Kelly and former Georgia Satellites bassist Rick Price, but found that the combination wasn't working, requiring him to seek other players. (The only song featuring Kelly and Price is the opener, "Knockin' On Mine.") He also revealed that the album title was a reference to Nine Stories, by J.D. Salinger.

Reception

By March 1996, 14 Songs had sold over 161,000 copies in the US.
