21 Who Were You Thinking Of
I've found out that there are many Wilco shows up to ~2005 that have probably never been torrented (at least not since ~2005)
but have only been traded, presumably in the last years of traditional trading. Somehow, these shows were forgotten in the first
waves of torrenting - or deemed not worthy of digital distribution ... or simply those traders in possesion never made the step to
torrenting and then stopped trading altogether, like most everybody did.
I've searched high and low, checked countless old lists and sent a lot of asking mails to ancient email addresses. About half of them
bounced, another quarter didn't reply - and the ones that did hadn't traded (or stopped collecting) in a long time. But then I
found some nice persons who were willing to share shows with me.
Arrangements were made and in 2018/19 I was able to share almost 30 Wilco and Jeff Tweedy shows with you.
As a result, three more Wilco collectors got in touch and provided me with some more shows that I'll be able to share with you.
I have not yet listened to all, most need some work. I guess many of the original CDs are flawed by now,
but most can be rescued or restored with just some problems remaining, it'll take some time, please be patient.
If anybody thinks that he has un(der)circulated shows, please get in touch, I can provide you with information about these shows !
notes to the 2020 edition:
Wilco's first show in Ireland and a small chatty crowd was there to greet the band. Jeff is interacting with the audience throughout
and there are some hilarious conversations with the audience, mostly funny. I assume this is from a digital master as pitch is okay.
No bigger problems here, except that I had to eliminate about 20 small gaps and clicks, now they're gone almost without a trace.
I added some light EQ. Many thanks to Henrik.
