bböp Posted October 29, 2021 Share Posted October 29, 2021 I'll probably get to writing something about this "show" at some point, but it won't be a full recap since Wilco was only a part of a few songs. Basically, the format was each inductee had a short video tribute, then was introduced by a fellow artist and gave an acceptance speech followed by a few songs spotlighting their work — either performed by the inductees themselves, or by other artists with or without the inductees or with the house band, which was led by Lloyd Maines on pedal steel (who, as Jeff noted, played on A.M.; for the record, he was on four songs — It’s Just That Simple, Blue-Eyed Soul, I Thought I Held You And Dash 7). Alejandro Escovedo's segment led off the program, followed by Lucinda Williams' section. Then there was a short intermission before Wilco's portion concluded the evening. Here was the complete "setlist," as played, for the entire program: Alejandro Escovedo -lntroduction by Lenny Kaye -Alejandro Escovedo acceptance speech -Algo Azul (Spanish-language version of Something Blue) [Alejandro on electric guitar w/Alex Ruiz on lead vocals, Sheila E. on drums and Lenny Kaye on electric guitar and house band, including string section) -Sally Was A Cop [Alejandro on electric guitar w/John Doe on lead vocals, Sheila E. on drums, Lenny Kaye on electric guitar and house band, including string section] -Put You Down [Alejandro on electric guitar w/Sheila E. on drums and house band, including string section] Lucinda Williams -Introduction by Jason Isbell -Lucinda Williams acceptance speech -I Envy The Wind [Jason Isbell on electric guitar and vocals w/house band] -Crescent City [Lucinda w/Rosanne Cash on co-vocals and house band] -Changed The Locks [Lucinda w/Margo Price on electric guitar and co-vocals and house band] Wilco -Introduction by Rosanne Cash -Wilco acceptance speech (by Jeff Tweedy) -A Shot In The Arm [Wilco w/Lloyd Maines on pedal steel] -Sky Blue Sky [Bill Callahan on vocals and acoustic guitar and Nels Cline on lap steel] -One Sunday Morning (Song For Jane Smiley's Boyfriend) [Terry Allen on vocals and keyboard] -Jesus, etc. [Wilco w/Michelle Zauner on co-vocals and string section] -California Stars [entire ensemble, including Wilco w/Rosanne Cash, Terry Allen, Alejandro Escovedo on co-vocals, Sheila E. on percussion, Jason Isbell and Lenny Kaye on electric guitar, John Doe, Bill Callahan, Margo Price and Michelle Zauner on backing vocals] 3 2 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
