🎸To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the official release of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, Wilco are releasing a deluxe version with 11 LPs, a CD and a book covering the original album, alternative takes, instrumentals, and an entire live show recording. That’s a lot of music! And spendy! I am kind of with Stereogum commentator Bargain Basement Batman: please release a new pressing of the original album!
🐴 The trailer for Slow Horses landed this week. If you find yourself at a lose end for ten days or so I can’t think of a better series of novels to dive into than Mick Herron’s Slough House books, upon which the telly program is based.
🥁 Last week I bought an old favourite on vinyl: Rabbit Fur Coat by Jenny Lewis with the Watson Twins. It is a perfect album. The high point for me is when the drums kick in during the second half of Born Secular. Sublime.

🎸 Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours has been on the UK charts for 926 weeks and regularly outsells most other popular artists.

It’s good to hear Jeff kinda belt out a tune. The video is promoting a deluxe edition of Love Is The King
Breaking a 19 year drought, I posted a link on MetaFilter about Tom Breihan’s article on Stereogum discussing Billy Joel’s We Didn’t Start The Fire. He does not like it. I called it his worst big hit. The comments on the MeFi post were great.
