Along the way, you'll spot cameos from some of the band's family, from Paul Westerberg's sister Mary Lucia (a local DJ) to Anita and Lonnie Stinson, mother and sister of bassist Tommy and late guitarist Bob. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune has a great list of references, including a touching, subtle tribute to latter-day guitarist Slim Dunlap.

The new box set, featuring rare and unreleased demos and outtakes plus the band's earliest recorded live concert, is due Oct. 22.
