1 It’s an old Gordon Lightfoot song that the guys learned from a Nico record, but the Replacements make “I’m Not Saying” unmistakably their own. One of five new recordings featured on the Minneapolis legends’ “Songs for Slim” benefit EP — available for download Tuesday following a special-edition release in January — the track kicks off with a perfect bit of guitar slop and never loses its loose energy, even as Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson tighten down the song’s rich melodic punch. It sounds like it could have been an outtake from 1985’s “Tim” album. www.SongsForSlim.com
