Notes of Blue

With his band Uncle Tupelo (alongside future Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy), Jay Farrar helped invent alt country and twenty years or so later he's still producing laid back chugging song craft. It sits firmly in a rootsy brand of country where men are called Chuck or Buck and drive a Buick. Here he's written ten songs influenced by the blues stylings of the likes of Skip James but brings a contemporary sheen to the proceedings.  

Son Volt
Live at The Bottom Line

Upon the parting of Uncle Tupelo, Jeff Tweedy went Wilco while frontman Jay Farrar kickstarted Son Volt. His alt-country team released debut album 'Trace' in '95, an homage to honky tonk that stayed true to Farrar's musical obsessions. A live album came with the deluxe edition of 'Trace', and now it stretches out for its own LP release.

Son Volt
Trace

If Wilco was Jeff Tweedy’s response to the break-up of Uncle Tupelo, bandmate Jay Farrar’s was to form Son Volt. Trace was the first album under the name, and it is something of a landmark of alt-country. It is reissued here as a deluxe edition, the CD version including a whole live show on a second disc.
