The Ebay auction for Songs For Slim by the Replacements begins today.  As widely reported, the five song covers ep is the first material featuring Paul Westerberg & Tommy Stinson in many years (Chris Mars opted not to take part in the reunion, however he did record a cover of "Radio Hook Word Hit" by himself for Songs For Slim). The ep is a benefit for Slim Dunlap, the ex-Replacement who suffered a stroke in February 2012.  A total of 250 copies of the ep have been pressed and will be auctioned off to help raise money for Dunlap's medical bills.

Here's how the auction will work: The first copy of Songs For Slim will go up on Ebay starting at 11am ET (8am PT/4pm BST) today.   Every three minutes a new copy of Songs For Slim will be put up until all 250 copies are on Ebay.  All the copies will be on Ebay by tonight at 1:27 am ET (10:27 PT) - and each auction will last for 10 days. 

UPDATE: Auction is now live. Here's the link!

The track listing for Songs For Slim is posted below.

Side A:

1. Busted Up (Slim Dunlap)
2. Radio Hook Word Hit (Slim Dunlap)

Side B:

1. I'm Not Sayin' (Gordon Lightfoot)
2. Lost Highway (Hank Williams)
3. Everything's Coming Up Roses (from Broadway musical Gypsy)

As previously reported, Songs For Slim by the Replacements is the first in a series of benefit albums for Dunlap.  Other artists including Frank Black, Peter Buck, Jakob Dylan, John Doe, Lucinda Williams, and many others are preparing to release music as part of a Songs For Slim series.  Other releases in the series will be handled similarly - the initial pressings will be auctioned off on Ebay, then digital and commercial vinyl versions will be released.  So far, two other auctions have been scheduled: a Steve Earle/Craig Finn split single is scheduled for a February 15th auction and Lucinda Williams/Tommy Keene release will follow on March 15th.
