St Paul 2017 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Palace Theatre, St Paul, Minnesota; November 16, 2017. Very good audio (ripped from HDTV webcast).

One of the last chances for fans to see the band perform for a while, as Wilco will take a hiatus from touring for most, if not all of 2018, to record new material and to allow individual members to pursue other projects.

Thanks to indykid for sharing the HDTV webcast at Dime.

  3. Thanks big o, appreciate the wilco.

  4. I’ve never heard of these bozos . No wonder they are awful. Total waste of posting space .

    By Smashmouth on Dec 20, 2017

  5. Actually this is one of the better bands of the last two decades . But like many good newer bands poor promotion is the problem not lack of talent . They should have been much bigger . Sort of remind me of Poco

  6. Rockists who believe rock peaked in 1974 and want the same old tropes over and over again killed Rock…

  7. Great Wilco show big o, thanks. All of my friends seem to think that music started the first time that they turned on a radio and that it ended the day they graduated high school (or college). When someone around my age asks me what music I like, I tell them:

    All the standard 25o classic rock warhorses, and about 75 groups from the last 2 decades they will not even realize exist.
    I can not even talk music in person. It has become boring. I love listening though!

  8. Loved, loved, loved “A.M.” Each succeeding CD, liked a bit less, but each one had something I liked. The big disappointment was their leaving smart, melodic power pop and getting into dirges and 15-minute junkie odes to making-strange-noises-on-unexpected-objects.

    Lost track (purposefully), finally, about the time of Whiskey Tango, which bored the hell out of me with the added frustration of everyone raving about it as their best CD ever. Always, always, preferred the acoustic stuff and Tweedy’s solo club shows to their band CDs.

    When Jay was pushed out..and then died…they started getting some of their most, definitely unearned, acclaim. Since then, have read them doing the whole juvenile “Look, Ma, I’m fightin’ Nazis” thing, with their concerts for Obama (who pretty much destroyed our country; thank God — and Trump — that it’s back.) All Tweedy’s political show-off hipster stuff turned me off for good. (No offense to those who disagree; just had my fill of PC during the past 9 years.)

    Now to the point — I have between 25 and 50 bootlegs on CD, both wilco shows and tweedy solo, from the first show they did on through several years. I have no need for them. If anyone wants them, I’m too lazy to upload them, but I will drop all of them in a box and mail them to you.

    If interested, drop me an email at [email protected]. Just let me know you want them (no political comments, pls), and I’ll send ‘em to you. If more than one responds, I’ll just send to the first one who asks, so if you don’t hear back, that means they’re already gone.

    Hope someone will be as happy to have them, as I was during the years I was collecting them!
