Wilco covers The Beatles

Recommended Posts

Dig A Pony and Don't Let Me Down now on Amazon Music. (I assume these are new - Wilco sent out an email today)


Maybe a new cover at the Orpheum tonight? 

Unfortunately, after Wilco Saturday, Phish Sunday, and Wilco Monday, I'm taking tonight off (all three shows originally scheduled for 2019).

Pretty solid, which is not surprising. Stripped down Beatles performances is pretty well within Wilco's wheelhouse.


I thought the overall energy of "Dig a Pony" was fantastic. A faithful rendition, but still could feel Jeff and the gang in the Loft vibes.


"Don't Let Me Down" I liked a little less. Like a B instead of an A. I think I'm so attached to Lennon's ragged performance that Jeff's lighter touch seemed to take some of the urgency out of it. The lap steel was a nice touch.

I have Amazon Prime, but not Music...


I didn't even see a way to pay to download them...


Am I missing something?


I only have Prime but it still let me stream the songs, not sure if downloading is an option though.

I was definitely able to purchase both songs from Amazon. The problem is I can't remember precisely what I did in the middle step, but basically, here's how I did it: I signed up for the Amazon Music service, then selected each of the songs and added them to a list or liked them or something like that--that's the part I can't remember. Then when I went to my playlist with just those two songs and played them, there was a little three-dot button thingy next to each song. When that three-dot button was selected, it gave me the option to purchase each one. Once that was done and the songs had downloaded to my computer, I cancelled the service. The songs are still on my computer and on my phone and playable. Again, I can't remember exactly what to do, but now that I've cancelled the service, I can't retrace my steps. I did all of the above on the first day the songs were released, so I'm not sure if this is all still possible but I don't see why it would have changed. My advice would be sign up, play around with each song and maybe what to do will become clear. Sorry I can't be more help, but mostly I just wanted to let you all know that you can definitely purchase these if you dig around enough.
