Extensive Definition

Eventually is the second solo album that Paul Westerberg released after the breakup of the Replacements.
The album started out in Atlanta with producer Brendan O'Brien. Although those sessions produced good results—the leadoff single, "Love Untold," among them—Westerberg and O'Brien parted ways. O'Brien was pressed for time, and Westerberg needed more time to write enough songs to fill out a full album. Westerberg regrouped with Lou Giordano.
Former Replacement Tommy Stinson shows up to play bass and trombone on "Trumpet Clip."
The song "Good Day" was written for late Replacements guitarist Bob Stinson. It references "Hold My Life," a track from the album Tim.
