YHF is incredible, i had an mp3 copy as well for a few moths before it came out. it's easily the best album of the year thus far and it really makes me look forwayd to more releases from jeff tweedy.
as far as whiskeytown's strangers almanac, it is also really good, although i prefer 'pneumonia.'
glad to see wilco getting their props
Hey Anth0456...their old label, Reprise, was a division of Warner Brothers and so is their new label, Nonesuch. Now I bet you're REALLY wondering what they were smoking. The band purchased their masters from Reprise for $50,000 (maybe $30,000?? I forget) and then sold them back to Nonesuch. I assume they sold them back to Nonesuch at a profit. Isn't corporate America a hoot??
Hey Karl-I didn't know if I was getting too old or Terry Gross is getting hip. I've decided on the former. I really like Morphine and Treat Her Right, both of whom I had the luxury of seeing before Sandman passed away. Which BTW, ( Sandmans death) was also the focus of a small NPR segment last year, strangely enough.
