  1. Me and a friend of mine where having a discussion about Jay Bennett and we got to talking about the song "Watching Junior drive." So we went to find it and couldn't. I couldn't even remember what album it was on to go see if my long forgotten CD collection had it somewhere. Does anyone know where I could track this down?
  2. I demand nothing less than perfection from your After the Show reports
  3. Nudie Suit Days! I was hoping they would break those out for the Cruel Country Tour.
  4. A message about no smoking. Amazing.
  5. A couple more REM - Around the Sun Elvis Costello - All This Useless Beauty (technically 19 years from first release, but it is so damn good). And his stuff from 30 years into his career is pretty amazing. Son Volt - Notes of Blue, which is underrated IMHO and this might be a stretch, but Jack White released the first White Stripes album in 1999 and at the 20 year mark he came out with the fantastic one two punch of Fear the Dawn and Entering Heaven Alive.
  6. Got my Deluxe Vinyl yesterday. Read the book that came with it, learned a couple of new things, but nothing mind-blowing, pictures were fun. Listened to it (sounds amazing BTW). Though I do wish I would have paid for the Super Deluxe
  7. My friend got his Super deluxe vinyl version in the mail the other day. I am still waiting on mine.
  8. Yep me too. Know anything about the opener?
  9. Via Chicago featured heavily in the new FX series, The Bear.
  10. This is a great project and idea, I might have to end making a mixtape playlist. With what comes out of this. Just some thoughts Side with seeds (third verse, last 4 lines, which kinda brings up my not apathy, but general frustration) But you and I will be undefeated By agreeing to disagree No one wins but the thieves So why side with anything? Country Disappeared (all of it seems especially apt) All You Fascists/Stetson Kennedy/I Guess I Planted (not necessarily Tweedy's words, but an influence for sure) Let's Go Rain (mor
  11. So back to the OP, what is a hit? What would constitute Wilco having a Touch of Grey moment? x number of streams? x number of downloads? radio play? Placing in the top 10 on Billboard Whatever? BTW Here is Wilco's Billboard profile or whatnot https://www.billboard.com/artist/wilco/. According to this they have had "hits." But what does it all mean? IMHO to label a song a "hit" is meaningless in today's world.
  12. As you admit it is a broken formula and a system that is easily gamed, so to categorize a song as a hit is inherently flawed. I guess to the OP question, will Wilco every have a top 10 hit like The Dead did with Touch of Grey. No they will not.
  13. What is even a hit any more? Gone are the days of top 40 charts.
