  • Nonesuch Records to Release Three "Mermaid Avenue" Volumes on Vinyl for Black Friday, November 29

On Black Friday, November 29, 2013, Nonesuch Records will reissue the first two volumes on vinyl and release, for the first time on vinyl, a third volume comprising 17 previously unreleased recordings made during the original sessions, which was first released in the 2012 three-CD-plus-DVD set Mermaid Avenue: The Complete Sessions. Each volume is pressed on 2-LP, 180-gram vinyl at Pallas MFG in Diepholz, Germany. The albums are available to pre-order in the Nonesuch Store.

About this Album

Daring in its own right, Wilco’s third and final album for Warner Bros. foreshadows the even more experimental work to come on the band’s Nonesuch debut, Yankee Foxtrot Hotel. As Rolling Stone put it, “Wilco use the studio like an instrument, unreeling mini-movies of the imagination, blending and then bending the sound of guitars, drums and a thrift-shop array of vintage keyboards.” Includes the album on 12" vinyl and CD; Nonesuch Store purchases also include free MP3 downloads of the album.
