    What a great band, alternative country and four albums before splitting and before I got to see them gutted!!


    Love the vocals, they got better and better and their major label debut "Anodyne" was superb.

    I have the anthology, which is great. I also like the fact that the group had two singers. Jay Farrar started as the leader and main songwriter but Jeff Tweedy was the group's secret weapon. Of course he went on to bigger and better things with Wilco, but Uncle Tupelo should've gotten more recognition and airplay.

    O, Wow! Awesome band. I didn't know this group, but dang, they are great :)

    I guess the best album to get would be Anodyne? or should I look for Anthology?

    Awesome, hugely important band!! I don't think you can go wrong with Anoydyne, No Depression or one of the anthologies...





    If you like Uncle Tupelo also check out Jay Farrar's band Son Volt, their sound is much more similar to Tupelo than Wilco's is:

    This song refers to Keith Richard's legendary omission that he snorted his father's ashes..

    Anodyne was so well produced, makes me want to get the reissues of all the early stuff but I will hold back, so many albums to buy so little time..

    This band were another forgotten band and should have been bigger, I love all their stuff and really wish I had seen them live, I bet they put a right show on.

    Here is a few little beauties to tide you over...
