  1. Yeah the concert is from July 2002, Jay would have been gone for about a year. I'm not sure if Mike was performing with the band, I know early on he was doing some stuff, like cuing up samples from backstage, but he's not credited in the linernotes at all. Bob Mehr's essay is really worth reading, it has some really interesting details about the recording of the album and the Jay's departure. Ultimately though, the music is the highlight here and this thing delivers. Between the album, the Loose Fur record, and Jay's leaked demos, I always figured we'd heard the majority of stuff from th
  2. There's two things I'm really impressed with: 1) The amount of content we've never heard before. 2) The sound quality of the stuff we have heard Sounds great on vinyl but I'm looking forward to having the digital version on Friday and bouncing between different versions of songs and comparing the differences. 🤓
  3. Contrary to what one might think due to my profile picture (Johnny Canuck being a historic hockey logo for the city of Vancouver, displayed here in modern Canuck colours of blue and green), I was not at this show. However, since no one has posted the setlist and the setlist featuring a unique (for this tour) song I feel this is worth preserving from a historical perspective. Especially when the Wilco World website does not currently list the song between Impossible Germany and California Stars. I have heard from a trusted source at the show that Love Is Everywhere was listed on the setlist in
  4. Thanks for capturing and sharing!! I thought that whole exchange was great. I didn't know another long time VCer was there!
  5. Between bbop and theashtraysays expertly capturing the train incident, I think there's one more banter moment worth preserving in the written record from this show. It started when someone in the crowd asked Jeff about why he was playing a Gibson J-45. Jeff explain that this specific J-45 was a guitar he hadn't been using in recent years but brought it back for the YHF anniversary shows, since it is the Yankee Hotel Foxtrot guitar. He strummed a bit of I Am Trying To Break Your Heart and he was right, it sounded just like that guitar. At this point Pat spoke up to help Jeff out. I think (???)
  6. This post is pretty funny. Why did I say They Might Be Giants? Anyways, my issue at concerts these days isn't the children it's the loud mouth adults. Bring the kiddos, it's one less seat for a drunken boomer or an obnoxious 21 year old (...as I was when I made that post!). Definitely anyone under the teenage years should wear earphones or ear plugs. The Cruel Country shows I've seen haven't been the loudest shows I've ever been to but Vince is right, the levels are being set pretty high.
  7. The iconic Canadian venue.... the Budweiser Stage. I believe this Budweiser Stage is the same venue they did a similar double bill with Lord Huron a few years ago. If Wilco ever circles back to Toronto in the next few years and plays the newly renovated Massey Hall, I'll definitely try to make the trip.

  9. If you pre-ordered, check your e-mails for an early version of Kamera.
  10. Looks like it's limited to 8000, so I'm sure you'll be able to track one down after. All of the Wilco RSD stuff recently has shown up on the Wilco webstore within a few weeks too so keep an eye out I'm sure one will pop up!
  11. There will be a CD release on Record Store Day Drops June 18th: https://recordstoreday.com/SpecialRelease/15451 Looks to be no-frills in terms of cover art, etc.
  12. The times I've seen it in recent years, including 2016 Seattle, Jeff played a 12 string acoustic and John played a 6 string acoustic, no one played bass.
  13. I wish I had some proof but I successfully predicted that Pitchfork would give Cruel Country a 7.2 before I even heard the album. https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/wilco-cruel-country/
