Wilco | B-Sides

May 16, 2007 at 2:45 pm (b-sides, mp3s, Wilco)


Well, the White Stripes benchmark for hard-to-find-b-sides has been surpassed, by none other than Jeff Tweedy and co.. Seriously, I started my search for these on Saturday, and countless hours and emails later, I only managed to come up with barely half of what I wanted. It never really hit me how much material Wilco have produced over the years, until I pulled these together. Not necessarily because of the difficulty I had finding these, but in how different they are from each other. You can hear the progression of the band in these tracks, from alt-country to rock to alt-rock, and finally, back to alt-country. Although my favorites here are the two tracks from the More Like The Moon EP, ‘Bob Dylans 49th Beard’ and ‘A Magazine Called Sunset’,most of you will probably find ‘One True Vine’ the most interesting. Vine is the first b-side from Wilco’s latest LP, Sky Blue Sky, to make an appearance. Judging by Wilco’s penchant for recording far more material than they can use, however, I doubt it’ll be the last.

    I’ve got all of the YHF outtakes and demos up on my blog this week. If you don’t have Cars Can’t Escape and Venus Stop The Train, you need to come grab those at a minimum.

    Any chance of getting our hands on the three outtakes from ‘Kicking TV’? (Monday, Theologians & How to Fight Lonliness) — I must have them. Can’r blame me for trying. Thanks for this post – it rocks!

    I don’t know if anyone knows this, but you can insert the copy of Sky Blue Sky into your computer and get a download of a studio version of “The Thanks I Get”. It’s also playing on some Volkswagen commercial.

    You can see the commercial here:


    there’s going to be a lot of Wilco music in VW commercials this summer…

    Can someone please email me a link or the mp3 of “Blasting Fonda” (the studio version)???
    itunes doesn’t have it, and i can’t find it anywhere on the web. I have solo versions that Jeff has done in concert, but not the cut that is found on the Outtasite (Outtamind) and Feeling Minnesota soundtrack.

    Can these still be downloaded somewhere? I don’t have, nor have I ever heard, several of those B-sides. Thanks in advance for any help.

  15. Kurt said,

    I have all of these songs. Let me know what your email address is and I’ll try to hook you up with some of these. I have every Wilco song known to my knowledge.
    They are the best!

    The 100 point thing is just one part of it. More interesting is how his empire was built on bluster. He is human after all, and not a tasting robot.
