The swan song for their original lineup, and their greatest moment, made in just five days yet resonating for years. Grindstone; Black Eye; Moonshiner; Sandusky ....plus five bonus tracks, three unissued.
After ripping it up on No Depression and Still Feel Gone, their first two albums of twangy punk rock, Uncle Tupelo unplugged for this remarkable tribute--half originals, half political and religious covers--to the band's old-time influences. While the new songs of frontmen Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy are consistently strong here (especially Farrar's "Grindstone"), the album's haunted covers of old folk songs are the true keepers. Tweedy's apocalyptic version of "Satan, Your Kingdom Must Come Down" and Farrar's earnest readings of the beat-down "Moonshiner" and the labor song "Coalminers" are as frightening, beautiful, and passionate as anything the band ever recorded. The 2003 expanded and remastered edition adds three unreleased demos, a live version of "Moonshiner," and an instrumental B-side. --David Cantwell

But it doesn't matter, because no one (not even Wilco or Volt) will EVER be Uncle Tupelo.

Farrar excels beyond in songs like Coalminers, Shaky Ground, and Criminals.Read more
