  • On the acclaimed Mermaid Avenue albums, Billy Bragg and Wilco put music to lyrics by folk legend Woody Guthrie for which he had not written music or made recordings. Tweedy and Bragg were "the perfect pair to conclude that Guthrie ... was a prophetic rock-and-roller with a whole lot to say," said the New York Times. "All he needed was a band and a little freedom." This third volume, released in conjunction with Mermaid Avenue: The Complete Sessions 3CD+DVD set in 2012, comprises 17 previously unreleased recordings from the original sessions. The 2-LP, 180-gram vinyl edition was pressed at Pallas MFG in Diepholz, Germany, for Black Friday 2013.

  • On the acclaimed Mermaid Avenue albums, Billy Bragg and Wilco put music to lyrics by folk legend Woody Guthrie for which he had not written music or made recordings. Mermaid Avenue: The Complete Sessions includes the original two volumes (the second re-mastered); a third volume with 17 previously unreleased recordings from those sessions; the 1999 documentary on the sessions, Man in the Sand; and a 48-page booklet with new liner notes by Nora Guthrie, lyrics, archival photographs, and facsimiles of lyric sheets and sketches by Woody Guthrie. "Nobody has picked up on Woody as effectively—or unexpectedly—as this transatlantic get-together," says the BBC. "What's remarkable," says Pitchfork, is "the number of gems these sessions produced."

  • "It's the best it's ever felt," said Jeff Tweedy of these 2005 Wilco performances recorded in Chicago. Rolling Stone calls Kicking Television “a love letter to Wilco's dedicated fans and a definitive live statement from America's foremost rock impressionists.” This LP box set includes an audiophile, 180-gram vinyl pressing of the album on four discs with eight previously unreleased bonus tracks and a fold-out commemorative poster.

  • Wilco’s second effort is an ambitious, double album of 19 songs that the New York Times described as “grand, bleak, woozy.” The Independent compared it favorably to the Rolling Stones’ brilliant, nefarious Exile on Main Street: “Like them, Wilco have the precious gift of being able to render a blend of styles—in their case, primarily country-rock and raggedy-ass American punk—with a bar-room warmth and conviction that's entirely beguiling.” Includes the album on 12" vinyl, CD, and free MP3 download.

  • Wilco’s debut, A.M. represents Jeff Tweedy’s first step into increasingly adventurous territory after the break-up of alt-country pioneers Uncle Tupelo. “Tweedy shows an undeniable feel for melody,” declared the Chicago Sun-Times, “a gift for the resonant rhyme and an unhurried voice that reeks of cigarettes and charisma.” Includes the album on 12" vinyl, CD, and free MP3 download.

  • Wilco (the album), the band's seventh studio album, "is all about a great band playing great original music on an album filled with great songs," says NPR. The Independent gives a perfect five stars to the "magnificent" album, which finds Wilco "at the peak of its powers." BBC says the band's latest features "some of their most charming pop rock ensemble playing" and asks, "Best live band? How about plain old best band in the world right now?" 

  • This DVD, produced and directed by Christoph Green and Fugazi’s Brendan Canty, presents Wilco live in concert during their 2008 tour. Culled from concerts in five quintessentially American venues—Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, Tipitina’s in New Orleans, Mobile Civic Center in Mobile, Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, and 9:30 Club in DC—the film captures the energy, poignancy, and musicality of a Wilco concert and tour. DVD is formatted for Region 1.

  • Songwriter Jeff Tweedy is succinct and soulful on “the most musically direct and down to earth of the band’s six-album career” (Los Angeles Times). Spin calls it “near perfect.” Wilco does leave room for inspired jamming, especially on “Impossible Germany.” Deluxe version includes both the album on CD plus a 48-minute film on DVD. The film, directed by Christoph Green and Fugazi’s Brendan Canty, captures the band discussing and performing songs from the album in Chicago.
