Following on from his days in Alt. Country trailblazers Uncle Tupelo, Jeff Tweedy formed Wilco. A.M. was their first album, originally released in 1995. It mixed frazzled alt. Country with a Rolling Stones rock swagger. Now it has been reissued as a Deluxe Edition with eight additional bonus tracks, including the last recording made by the aforementioned Uncle Tupelo. CD and LP on Rhino.

These songs are filled with banjo, and fiddle, and guitar by Brian Henneman from The Bottlerockets. The songs are melancholy and happy, rocking and peaceful, feel-good and feel-strongly, and always, always high quality. All in all, this is a very strong album. I urge newer Wilco fans that haven't heard it or haven't really listened to 'A.M.' to give it a chance; let it grow on you. It may not have the subjective flare of 'Yankee Hotel Foxtrot', but it is a Wilco album with the same great songwriting and the same great love of music that has been with the band from the start.
