I have seen Jeff Tweedy perform solo acoustic and enjoyed his songs in the stripped-down context even more than the full-band shows I have also seen. The unadorned versions of these songs revealed just how powerful they were, with different nuances standing out that I hadn't noticed when hearing them performed with other musicians.
For years I was hoping that Tweedy would release some of these shows somehow, but had to settle for bootleg versions of various songs. Finally, Tweedy has created an official release of this material and it sounds splendid.
The first thing I noticed about this collection was the setlist. Tweedy obviously spent time looking backwards and pulling up songs that had meaning for him and his fans. The inclusion of a song from the Golden Smog project this has long been one of my favorite things to hear and one from Loose Fur show how deep Tweedy delved. The setlist is very balanced overall and doesn't focus on one period to the exclusion of any other. Second, the great care and attention to the songs themselves is remarkable.
Tweedy balances the inevitable reinterpretation with a reverence for the source material which makes each performance sound fresh and new while still being rooted in the sometimes recent, sometimes more distant past. Nothing sounds out of place, and the songs that undergo the most change the YHF and Loose Fur material still somehow manage to sound just right. I wish the set overall had been a bit longer, but I can't argue with what's here.
As a longtime Wilco and Jeff Tweedy fan, I am extremely happy to finally be able to hear this material on an official release. Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase. This review is of the physical packaging, not the music. If you're ordering this album, you know things and you already like Jeff, so you're fine. It's an exceptional album. I ordered this twice, because each time it came, the vinyl itself has poked through the spine of the jacket and ripped the cardboard. It came like this twice and I just gave up, accepting that this is how it's gonna be.
But I really wish they could send one that wasn't ripped. It makes my shelves look trashy, and I've got such a neat, organized, clean thing going on with my vinyl. One person found this helpful. Jeff Tweedy is my hero. These solo versions of these great Wilco songs are a treat for any fan of the band or Jeff. Highly recommended.
How I've been wanting to hear Jeff Tweedy since the 90's. The LP has a few crackles and Beautiful record! Beautiful versions of some of my favorite songs. Great sound quality. Great songs.
