    March 16-20, 1992

    March 16-20, 1992 is the third release from the alt-country pioneers Uncle Tupelo, named in reference to the five-day span in which the album was recorded. Produced by R.E.M.'s Peter Buck at John Keene Studios in Athens, GA, the almost entirely acoustic 15-song set is split equally between material written by Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy and traditional Appalachian folk songs.


    Although the album's originals offer up early warnings of the growing differences between the two gifted songwriters with Farrar's earnest fare and Tweedy's more nihilistic leanings, the pristine sounding March 16-20, 1992 single-handedly re-energized rock's return to traditional country origins and forever solidified Uncle Tupelo as the boldest and brightest purveyors of the alt-country movement.

    Trace

    Jay Farrar always provided the darkest, grittiest moments in Uncle Tupelo, so it comes as no surprise that Son Volt is a rawer record than A.M., the first album by Wilco, a band led by his former partner Jeff Tweedy. Throughout Son Volt's debut, Trace, the group reworks classic honky tonk and rock & roll, adding a desperate, determined edge to their performances. Even when they rock out, there is a palpable sense of melancholy to Farrar's voice, which lends a poignancy to the music. Trace isn't a great step forward from Tupelo's last album, the lovely Anodyne, but it is a fine continuation of the ideas Farrar has pursued over the course of his career.

    No Depression

    No Depression is cited as one of the most important albums in the alternative country genre. Due to the impact of the album on alternative country, the term 'No Depression' is sometimes used as a synonym for the genre. The album helped kick start a revolution which reverberated throughout the American underground. In 1999, Spin Magazine listed the album as one of the Top 90 Albums of the 90s.


    The album's punk attitude, featuring heavy guitars combined with mandolins, fiddles, and banjos, was the brainchild of singers/songwriters Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy. Their lyrical depictions of rural, blue-collar life paint grim portraits of Midwestern existence as life in the twilight zone, split between days working in the factory (Factory Belt) and nights spent blurry-eyed and wasted (Whiskey Bottle, Before I Break).

    Still Feel Gone

    1991's Still Feel Gone is the sophomore release from the seminal alt-country group Uncle Tupelo which famously spawned both Jeff Tweedy's Wilco and Jay Farrar's Son Volt upon its demise. The least country sounding album of the band's four record output, Still Feel Gone's 13-tracks unceremoniously pay homage to their garage and punk-rock roots, offering what is arguably the best document of the full range of the band in the process.


    From the country stomp of Looking for a Way Out, to the lap-steel driven Still Be Around and Watch Me Fall, through the Minutemen tribute D. Boon and the solitary shuffle of True to Life, Still Feel Gone finds Uncle Tupelo courageously using the momentum of their impressive debut to not only champion their influences but prove what they're truly capable of in terms of both sound and vision.

    March 16-20, 1992

    March 16-20, 1992 is the third studio album by Alternative Country band Uncle Tupelo, released in 1992. The title refers to the five-day span during which the album was recorded. An almost entirely acoustic recording, the album features original songs and covers of traditional Folk songs in near equal number, and was produced by R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck.


    In 1990, Buck attended an Uncle Tupelo concert at the 40 Watt Club in Athens, Georgia. Buck was particularly impressed with the band's rendition of the Louvin Brothers' Great Atomic Power, and contacted the band after the show. Uncle Tupelo singers Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy exchanged their interests in Bluegrass music with Buck, and decided to collaborate on an acoustic music project in the future.


    March 16-20, 1992 sold more copies than their first two albums, No Depression [MOVLP1014] and Still Feel Gone [MOVLP1618], combined. The album generated mostly positive reviews. Jason Ankeny of Allmusic called the album a brilliant resurrection of a bygone era of American folk artistry. Bill Wyman of Entertainment Weekly remarked that it was a moving and sincere New Depression manifesto.

    Too Far To Care

    Pressed On 180-Gram Audiophile Vinyl


    Includes Insert


    The Old 97's are an alternative country/rock band from Dallas, Texas formed in 1993.


    They are recognized as pioneers of the alt-country movement during the mid to late 90s along with bands such as Uncle Tupelo, Drive-By Truckers, Whiskeytown, The Jayhawks, and The Bottle Rockets.


    Too Far To Care is the third studio album by the band, originally released in 1997. The album's title comes from the song Streets of Where I'm From.


    Lyrically the band's constant touring is evident in songs like Barrier Reef (with references to Chicago), Broadway (in New York City), and Niteclub (inspired, according to the band, by clubs in Cleveland, Ohio and Ann Arbor, Michigan).


    Four Leaf Clover was originally recorded on Hitchhike To Rhome, the first Old 97's album. Rhett (vocals/guitar) was searching for a duet to record with friend Exene Cervenka and had started work on an old-fashioned duet that I thought we might sing, but Exene proclaimed it 'too pretty'. That song later became Fireflies. Instead, Exene sang on Four Leaf Clover, replacing the lyric nothing to impress you with nothing to attract you which Rhett found much sexier.

    No Depression

    The album that inspired a website, a magazine and a musical movement, Uncle Tupelo's landmark 1990 debut No Depression is intrinsically a punk-rock record with country themes. On the one hand the album is named after a song by A.P. Carter and features banjos, mandolins and fiddles and on the other the songs are played at a breakneck pace and feature thrashing guitars and a punk spirit.


    Paying their respects to obvious influences like Graham Parsons, the Replacements and the Minutemen, the 12-song set accurately depicts the trials and tribulations of the rural, blue collar existence from the workingman anthems like Factory Belt and Graveyard Shift to the trappings of the nightlife on Whiskey Bottle and Before I Break.


    Equally as acclaimed as it is revered, No Depression brilliantly blends the heartbreak and longing of country music with the power and fury of punk-rock, done so with a precision that remains unmatched.

    A.M.

    + Full Length CD - LP Cut from Original Masters and Pressed at Pallas in Germany!



    Established from the ashes of alt-country legends Uncle Tupelo by Jeff Tweedy and other former members, Wilco was an apple that initially didn't fall too far from the tree. Their debut album, A.M. builds on the former group's brand of updated country-rock and emotionally charged songwriting, albeit with a more noticeable emphasis on the rock here. Many of the best creations on A.M. from the driver's-licenseless drunk in Passenger Side to the bar-band celebration of riverboat gambling on Casino Queen also sport an unprecedented sense of humor and playfulness that ultimately strengthens the songwriting and its appeal.

    Anodyne (Out Of Stock)

    Seminal alternative country-rock group Uncle Tupelo was formed in the Midwestern backwater of Belleville, Illinois, by high school friends Jay Farrar, Jeff Tweedy, and Mike Heldorn. Their marriage of punk rock animus with the simplicity of American roots music ignited a major movement heralding rock's return to traditional country origins. Heldorn had departed, Ken Coomer signed on, and in 1993 the band released one final album, Anodyne, widely considered their definitive work. Recorded live in an Austin studio, the album reinterprets country, rock, and folk idioms with the compelling vision that was Tupelo's own. After parting ways, members went on to found Wilco and Son Volt, but the brief and shining moment that was Uncle Tupelo will forever cast a long shadow on American roots rock.

    Ride (Out of Stock)

    Produced by Wayne and his longtime producer/collaborator Lloyd Maines (Uncle Tupelo,
    Wilco, Dixie Chicks, Joe Ely), Ride further cements Wayne's life-long calling ["All I want to do is play the Joints 'til the day I die"] as a modernday traditionalist through his signature mÉlange of roadhouse blues, hepcat boogie, rockabilly,
    and juke joint swing. As Hank III once said, "Wayne
    Hancock has more Hank Sr. in him than either I or Hank Williams Jr. He is the real deal."


    Ride is built on a vibe that is at once more direct and personal than those of his previous Bloodshot releases Viper of Melody (2009), Tulsa (2006),
    Swing Time (2003), and A-Town Blues (2001). "The
    album is an organic reaction to life's challenges ... these are not sad songs," the South TX native
    said of his 8th overall album and 5th for Bloodshot.

    Mermaid Avenue (Out Of Stock)

    When you first heard that Billy Bragg and Wilco were teaming up to set some Woody Guthrie lyrics to music, you knew it'd be an interesting project. But did anyone realistically think Mermaid Avenue would also wind up being one of 1998's finest albums? That's exactly what it is, a distinction it pulls off by simultaneously honoring Guthrie and blasting away any folksy expectations we might have of his music. Walking Guthrie's World War II-era lyrics into the 20th century's second, rock & roll half, Bragg and Wilco's Jeff Tweedy take turns on lead vocals, and the entire group collaborates on a sound that draws on folk- and country-rock, from Bob Dylan and the Band to Gram Parsons and Uncle Tupelo. The results are nearly flawless, ranging from yearning laments and playful children's rockers to horny ballads and brave protest songs that are not merely political but also profoundly moral. Like all of Guthrie's work, Mermaid Avenue is music to live better by. -- David Cantwell
