A couple of weeks ago the Reader‘s Asher Klein celebrated the tenth anniversary of Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. He clearly considers it the band’s peak, an assessment I can’t agree with. Wilco has had a couple distinct phases, and though that record was obviously the turning point between them, the band made a lot of fantastic music both before and after it. In fact, two of my favorite Wilco albums were reissued as a single release just a couple of days before Klein’s post, as part of Record Store Day—and thankfully the reissue wasn’t pressed in a tiny limited edition or repackaged in an inconvenient format. Mermaid Avenue: The Complete Sessions (Nonesuch) collects both of the albums Wilco made with Billy Bragg, where they set unpublished Woody Guthrie lyrics to original music, along with a third disc of previously unissued songs from the same sessions. The package also includes a DVD of the 1999 documentary Kim Hopkins made about the project, Man in the Sand.
