The sound quality of this 1st press is so amazing I can’t put it to words! It has an amazing bottom end with excellent separation. A tubey soundstage that gives you that “band in the room” presence. Just brilliantly mastered.

JAY RETURNS! WITH his introspective intelligent balladry we've come to expect/respect in tact. An almost even mixture of cow-punk ("Drown" and "Route" will bring you back to '91s STILL FEEL GONE) and mid-western workingman folk with sparse installments of pedal steel guitar and banjo throughout - this album is a perfect accompaniment to Uncle Tupelo's rootsy country swaggering swan song ANODYNE. Just hearing Jay's voice again comforts me to no end. Forget all the others in this now popular genre - this is the real thing...

The band is well rounded out with help from Mike Heidorn (first two UNCLE TUPELO albums) on drums and a host of others (including some Jayhawks). I really hate to say this but it is however true; together Jay & Jeff Tweedy (aka Wilco) had the best damn thing going in UNCLE TUPELO but as happens all to often, put two singer/songwriters together and they're bound to disagree and eventually break up leaving us with fragments of what was and what might have been. A great beginning and a clean slate for Jay Farrar. Cool name. Highly Recommended.

Does anyone know about the quality of the vinyl pressing? It appears to be the thin WB style but I wanted to check since it commands such high prices sometimes.
