My point is - so what? These comparisons between Jay and Jeff are beyond old at this point. They are different men with different personalities who went separate ways a long time ago. And why does Wilco's commercial success and current popularity have to be some kind of indictment of Jay Farrar's m...

Mount St. Helens says "Start recording!"

When a volcano gets impatient, you know it's time to get yer ass in the recording studio.

I hate to say this, but I MUCH prefer Jay with a band, specifically Jeff Tweedy and Mike Heidorn. I like the Jay solo stuff a lot, hell I think Barstow is near the top of my most played songs on iTunes. But my all time favorite Jay songs involve SV or UT. What makes me kind of sad is that Jay seems ...

I envy you... To start with a whole catalog of Jay songs... Funny how that works. Having seen UT 15 years or so ago I got back into UT about a year ago, which quickly led to Son Volt and Jay solo. But, just 2 days ago I discovered this amazing song called Sandusky. Just when I thought I was getting...

Damn, Briann, I'd say Jay oughta keep better tabs on you! ;)

By the way, I downloaded the Todd Snider show from Blueberry Hill last February, and it was good to see Todd brought you Mark up for a couple of tunes. Is that guy whacked or what?

Props.

David Byrne - Grown Backwards Saw him a few weeks ago and was utterly blown away. This album is great. That guy is amazing. I've downloaded a few of his shows and can't get enough of it. One of the shows I grabbed has him doing Naive Melody with a string section in place of the keyboard for the mel...

Welcome aboard! I'm by no means an old regular here, but I think I can help you out. First of all, regarding what music of his to get: opinions vary. Personaly I prefer the Uncle Tupelo music above the rest of the material, but it's a fine line. My advice, depending on your means, is to do the "book...

Neil Young doing Anodyne. Metallica doing Graveyard Shift (more out of interest than expectation). Jimmy Buffet doing Windfall. The Dixie Chicks doing Tear Stained Eye (yep I actually said that. They'd bring some great harmonies to the song). Pearl Jam doing Before I Break. Jay Farrar doing Pearl Ja...

It was a tough call between Trace and No Depression, so I flipped a coin and No Depression won.

I know this may not be the "consenus" on this board, but UT will always be #1 in my book. Okay, so I had to flip the coin four times....

As a STL native son who hasn't lived there in almost 10 years, I find your story a bit dissapointing. Sadly, it seems that if it isn't this new-ish focus of hip-hop acts from the city, or some white uppercrust events at Powell Symphony Hall, then it's largely ignored. Granted, the St. Louis Symphony...

Shame on me! I received my DVD's plus the CD of UT covers, all compliments of Sawyer and Sticky, about two weks ago. So a belated thanks to Sawyer and Sticky who did a great job! I thought the 94 show was absolutely breathtaking! I hadn't seen any UT since seeing them in person circa 90-91. So many ...

One blank DVD for burning the show.
Two blank DVDs for your troubles.
Pre-addressed, postage paid envelope for the return package.

Let me know if that's agreeable to you, I'd love to have that!
