Pre-Order Wilco Anniversary Collections 

 

Nonesuch Records releases two new Wilco collections on November 17 (December 1 outside of North America) in conjunction with the band’s 20th anniversary: Alpha Mike Foxtrot, a 4-CD/4-LP box set of rare studio and live recordings collected from the band’s extensive audio archives, and What’s Your 20?, a 2-CD compilation of essential tracks culled from the band’s previously released studio recordings. 

Pre-orders of Alpha Mike Foxtrot include an instant download of “A Magazine Called Sunset,” which Tweedy calls “a mysterious omission from an official recorded output and a real attempt at complete pop music.”

You can pre-order both collections here.

    Talking Timbuktu

    Ali Farka Touré's collaboration with Ry Cooder, Talking Timbuktu, was recorded in just three days in Los Angeles in 1993. Relaxed and accessible, the music is complimented by Cooder's subtle guitar work and sensitive production while retaining the integrity of Touré's performance. Mojo says: "Three days of studio spontaneity prove the innate compatibility of two traditions." Billboard calls it "a triumphant collaboration." Grammy Award Winner for Best World Music Album.

    Feeling that his travels abroad were weakening the link between the music and its source, Ali Farka Touré retuned to farming in his hometown of Niafunké, where producer Nick Gold brought a mobile studio to capture Touré in his own environment. Throughout the recording, Touré was moving between rice fields and the studio, yet the results are some of his best recordings. Q says the "Malian rootsman returns, thunderously, to his roots." Songlines calls it "sublime."

    On The Source, Ali Farka Touré's vision opens even further to include a full backing band and further forays into the electric guitar. Taj Mahal, Rory Mcleod, and Nitin Sawhney (who contributes tabla on "Inchana Massina") weave into Touré's dense musical tapestry while his philosophical and spiritual perceptions are enhanced by his protégé Afel Bocoum's gentle narration. The Guardian says the album is "as atmospheric and mesmeric as anything he's done and ... there's a greater range to his playing and singing."

    The River expands the acoustic journeys of Ali Farka Touré's debut album to include sax from Steve Williamson and input from members of the Chieftains, and with "Heygana" there's even a hint of reggae. Calabash player Amadou Cisse provides rhythmic accompaniment. Folk Roots calls it a "fast forward in terms of excellence."

    Ali Farka Touré's debut for World Circuit truly captures the essence of his unique "desert blues" style and rightly launched his career internationally. Sung in several different Malian languages, the songs here are mostly unaccompanied, showcasing his fluid guitar playing and haunting vocals. Largely recorded in London, it features a rare live version of "Amandrai" captured during 1987's Crossing The Border Festival. Q says the album "shows Touré's continuing flair and inventiveness."

    City Folk, the sophomore album from James Farm—saxophonist Joshua Redman, pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Matt Penman, and drummer Eric Harland—features 10 original tunes reflecting the members' many influences. "While their acoustic instrumentation, virtuosity, and improvisational brio scream jazz, their music displays influences from all over the map, including classical, rock, ambient, and electronica," says the Boston Globe. "The quartet grooves fiercely." The Financial Times describes City Folk as "ten beautifully crafted miniatures that rock with rhythm."
