Anyone else think Jeff Tweedy slept with a The Band lp every night?
This is the bands first offering and as far as I’m concerned, it’s their best effort. All of the songs are extremely playable, mixing rock, country, blue eyed soul and R&B.

It’s not uncommon for a bands first outing to be so great, after all they spent so much time perfecting these songs, playing them over and over, building a following, and then nailing each song because they know them so well. I just wish they’d done the same with the following albums. Don’t get me wrong, there are some great songs on each and every album, but not as here, a consistent body of work.

"Shouldn’t Be Ashamed" could be anyone’s banner song. It says so much with a simple chord and a raunchy voice, in only three and a half minutes. "Passenger Side" simply cracked me up, pure lyrical lamentations regarding the loss of a stoner’s driving license. And who hasn't caught the driver swerving from side to side with their eyes closed? "That’s Not The Issue" is finger picking, head bopping at it’s very best. Dig this one with an attitude and vibe.

This release from Wilco was as a refreshing piece of work as it was discovering Cracker for the first time. It's impossible not to love this record, the lyrics, the spirit or the light handed atmosphere the band create.

*** The Fun Facts: As to the band's name, it referenced the CB radio voice procedure for "Will Comply", a choice which lead singer and guitarist Jeff Tweedy has called "fairly ironic for a rock band to name themselves."
