  1. They've examined Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (with baseball great Dale Murphy) and A Ghost Is Born on previous episodes. Bechard wrote and directed the excellent documentary Where Are You, Jay Bennett? Episode 245: Wilco’s “Summerteeth” with Gorman Bechard & Jeff Frame
  2. I don't know how to best describe it, but none of the songs from that album registered with me. In fact I just had to search for the album to see some of the song names to remind me what was on the album. It's not a terrible album - they don't make those. It's just totally forgettable to me.
  3. That sucks. I hate it for him and the band. Hope he'll have a full recovery.
  4. What's so maddening to me is that there are a few songs I can't get enough of like "Falling Apart (Right Now)" and "A Lifetime to Find" (the songs that actually sound like country songs). But then there's the litany of slow, sad, and rather boring songs that remind me of Ode to Joy and some of the music I like less on the solo albums (although I much prefer Jeff's solo albums to anything released by Wilco since The Whole Love). Definitely not what I was in the mood for as we enter what will hopefully be the tail-end of the pandemic. As I suspected I mistakenly got my hopes up based on the firs
  5. And as far as special moments go this one was among my favorites: Neko Case and Wilco covering Connie Smith. That voice! If there's a roadcase of this set I sure hope this performance and the other covers will be included (though I have my doubts due to copyright law and such).
  6. I went into Solid Sound wanting to see Japanese Breakfast, Terry Allen, and Cut Worms the most. One out of three ain't bad. And I did make it in time to see the end of Cut Worms. My favorites from this year's festival: Bonnie "Prince" Billy (plus I got a fluorescent green lyrics sheet handed out before his set); Terry Allen and the Panhandle Mystery Band (this was my absolute favorite even before David Byrne came out at the end); Hand Habits; and Neko Case.
  7. I just got home from it, but better late than never: Todd Day Wait and Coleman Williams (aka IV - aka Hank IV). At the Egremont Barn, a renovated barn that's now a concert venue and bar. Both gentlemen have albums coming out soon, and tonight's show was part of a little series of fun shows for them before they start touring with their respective bands. It was such a relaxed, fun night of music with plenty of great covers such as the Replacements, Jimmie Rodgers, Roger Miller, Willie Nelson, and Hank Williams, Sr.
  8. So many great memories. Because I had so much convalescent time during winter and early spring, I spent hours entertaining myself by turning Solid Sound into a vacation and planning every little detail. My agenda went out the window before sundown last Thursday, yet I couldn't be more happy. I haven't seen everything I wanted to see. I didn't see every set I wanted to see. But I still experienced some incredible musical performances. Having one illness after another this year, I haven't had much time with other people. Consequently - or maybe just because of the quality of the company with who
  9. One thing I noticed at Solid Sound is that a fair number of these songs have more life in them when played live. Especially keyboards. I get what you're saying though about the overall feel/spirit of the songs. I've been sick most of this year and confined largely to working and sleeping. I wanted to let loose and was hoping this album would be the soundtrack for my summer (and the remainder of the year). I still think many of the songs hold up well, but they're not what I'm in the mood for. I've only listened to the recording once, so like you I need more time with it.
  10. Just listened to the album in its entirety for the first time. My first experience with it was Friday night at Joe's Field. A number of the songs sounded great to me live, and I couldn't wait to hear the recorded versions. The songs that sound like Jeff solo songs don't do much for me at this point. There are several songs that have kinda gotten into my head, which is something I can't say for most recent Wilco songs. I need more time with it though. I do love the "country" flourishes and wish there were more. It's definitely not another "Being There," and I probably have to accept that there
  11. What a magical weekend. I didn't adhere to my initial plans and missed some or all of a few of the sets I'd wanted to see. However, Terry Allen & the Panhandle Mystery Band (with David Byrne and Shannon McNally) killed it on Sunday. And Neko Case, Hand Habits, and Bonnie "Prince" Billy, whose full sets I caught, were so good. As great as the music and the food were, the people are what made it special. My housemates, old friends, and those I met for the first time this year gave me so many reasons to smile and laugh during the weekend. I can't wait for 2024.
  12. Hey, I'll be happy to be wrong. I thought it was OK to post critical and negative feelings/opinions here unlike the Facebook group. Guess I was wrong.
