  1. It came as a download with the Ashes of American Flags DVD. I was lucky enough to be at this show.
  2. KT does not belong anywhere on this list. And even though I've only heard a few songs, Ode to Joy belongs at the very bottom.
  3. Yes, they played Wichita Lineman a few times. They released one of the live versions as a B-side, or maybe a Christmas single.
  4. I didn't get to the installation at Solid Sound, but it makes me hopeful that they'll include 5.1 mixes on future "deluxe" editions of Summerteeth and YHF (and everything else for that matter).
  5. The official store just put Summerteeth CDs/LPs on sale for the 20th anniversary. I take it this means no deluxe edition? I'll hold out hope for the full-album set at Solid Sound.
  6. Cell service hasn't been a problem, although if I'm going on a long trip I may download a few albums before I go, or bring the big ipod. I used Google Play music for awhile, but found it was glitchy on Mac/iOS. Actual playback worked well, but the navigation/interface was difficult. It kept putting duplicates of albums in my account, and would do annoying stuff like combining the Beatles' and Replacements' "Let It Be" into one album, or swapping album artwork. And reissues seemed to blow its mind. Hard to complain when it's free, though.
  7. I've been using iTunes Match for a year now and I really like it. It's $25 a year, so much less expensive than most streaming services. It keeps my entire iTunes music library in the cloud, including live shows etc., and I can organize it however I want. The downsides compared to a big iPod are that it uses cellular data if not on WiFi, and it limits quality to 256 kbps, but those are okay tradeoffs for $25 a year.
  8. More details, courtesy of Bull Moose Records. http://www.bullmoose.com/p/26044477/wilco-being-there-5cd http://www.bullmoose.com/p/26044475/wilco-am-deluxe-edition A.M. looks like the original record plus 8 bonus tracks. BT is as described above. Color me excited for both.
  9. Yep. That was a kick-ass rock show. Those guys were on fire tonight.
  10. Saw the show at Lincoln Theatre in DC last weekend and thought it was terrific. They played almost all of the new album, plus half of Rainy Day Music, and then a song or two off every other album since Hollywood Town Hall (except Mockingbird Time, which Gary has disowned and nobody missed). They sounded great, especially Gary's guitar. He's not Nels Cline, but he can still shred pretty good. The opener Folk Uke was also worth showing up early for, if anyone has tix to the next few shows. Folk Uke is Cathy Guthrie and Amy Nelson, daughters of Arlo and Willie, playing ukelele and guitar. T
  11. I like it a lot so far. As some reviewers have said, it has a couple of great R.E.M.-like songs on it--better than most of R.E.M.'s last few records for sure. I love the songs with Buck's guitar and/or Mills's backing vocals. Looking forward to seeing these songs live next month.
  12. I have my whole library--probably around 20,000 songs--on Google Play, too. I'm not wild about the Google Play interface, and I'm also not a huge fan of streaming on the go due to network performance and stinginess on data, but it's real convenient when I'm on wifi and it sounds just fine. And of course, the price is right. I still have a 160GB iPod classic as well, but I pretty much only use it on long road trips.

  14. I was wondering whatever happened to that video project. Glad to hear it will be out soon.
