Product Description

Product Description

The swan song for their original lineup, and their greatest moment, made in just five days yet resonating for years. Grindstone; Black Eye; Moonshiner; Sandusky ....plus five bonus tracks, three unissued.

Amazon.ca

After ripping it up on No Depression and Still Feel Gone, their first two albums of twangy punk rock, Uncle Tupelo unplugged for this remarkable tribute--half originals, half political and religious covers--to the band's old-time influences. While the new songs of frontmen Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy are consistently strong here (especially Farrar's "Grindstone"), the album's haunted covers of old folk songs are the true keepers. Tweedy's apocalyptic version of "Satan, Your Kingdom Must Come Down" and Farrar's earnest readings of the beat-down "Moonshiner" and the labor song "Coalminers" are as frightening, beautiful, and passionate as anything the band ever recorded. The 2003 expanded and remastered edition adds three unreleased demos, a live version of "Moonshiner," and an instrumental B-side. --David Cantwell

5.0 out of 5 stars Strange, Beautiful Music Sept. 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
If you have never heard Uncle Tupelo, all I can do to explain it is punk rock meets country. I can't explain it better than that, but it is really really heart-ful music. I can't say that the trio is overly talented, or that any of the music they make are masterpieces. But, for some reason, they make very good music. It seems to grow on you the more you listen to it and this album is the prime example of that.

This is not an album to get if you haven't heard or you're not a Tupelo fan. I would recommend either their anthology or Still Feel Gone. But, if you are already a fan, most agree this and Still Feel Gone are their prime albums. This seems to take the aura surrounding the band as a blue-collar, steel working group into new heights. Songs like Moonshiner and especially Coalminers seem like an honest testament to the lower class American workers, holding all the heart and soul of the people within the music. Like I said, it is probably the hardest album of theirs to get into, but if you are a Tupelo fan and you don't have this album, with the new release of the remastered version, there is just no excuse not to own this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly great CD just got better July 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
There was absolutely nothing wrong with the original March 16-20, 1992, which gets its title from the five days it took to record this acoustic UT CD in John Keane's Athens, Georgia, with REM's Peter Buck producing. It's as if all the forces in the universe came together at the right time to create an album that mixes old Louvin Brothers classics and other "old-timey" songs, with new material by Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy. The magic is the old "hillbilly" classics and the new material blend together so well. Buck truly did a majestic job of sequencing this CD! The remastered version contains material that was not recorded during that 5-day period in March 1992, but rather in 1991 or 1993. Still, it does not detract from the original material so much as add a slightly different perspective at the end. In my book, this is one of the 5 best albums of the 1990s. If you are just discovering UT, I also highly, highly recommend the "best of" "89/93," which does a fine job of presenting an overview of their career, including a killer version of CCR's "Effigy." The new March clocks at out about 63 minutes and I've had it in my computer's CD player for the entire week. It's Friday as I write this, so I'll probably bring it home and play it all weekend. It's just such a great blend of old-timey music and new music. In the liner notes Buck says that by the middle of the week he knew he was working on a classic album. He hit that nail square on the head! This truly is classic acoustic alt.country/No Depression/Americana, and sets a high standard that, IMHO, has yet to be equaled.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quiet Side May 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
Uncle Tupelo went unplugged on their brilliant third album, March 16-20, 1992. Produced by R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck, the album features six cover songs of mostly traditional folk music. The band's signature sound is stripped down to the skeletal remains of acoustic guitars with a dash of percussion and strings. The songs have on overt political nature and the band throws in some religion as well. The overall starkness of the album recalls Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska. Unlike that album which found Mr. Springsteen singing from a first person point of view, Uncle Tupelo act as troubadours, telling the tales of the downtrodden. The album shows the band's versatility and Mr. Buck's subtle production is first-rate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Necessary. May 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
Watershed release from seminal rockers come crooners come whatever. Produced by R.E.M' s Peter Buck, March... sees Jay and Jeff respectively trading blows of genius. Highlights include Farrar's protest ditty "Grindstone" and Tweedys brooding "Black Eye" but perhaps most significantly the two combine on this record for unbelievable results. Most notably the breathtaking "Moonshiner" and the instrumental "Sandusky". A classic in every sense of the word. The re release features early demos of "Grindstone" and "Atomic Power" as well as a live version of "Moonshiner".

5.0 out of 5 stars Uncle Tupelo's best April 10 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is by far my favorite Uncle Tupelo album because this is the album that best shows Uncle Tupelo's folk influence. This album has a perfect blend of original songs, and traditional songs the band learned from a Missouri folk compilation tape they heard. Its also good to see a CD that has worthwhile liner notes. The liner notes explain the band's background and the inspirations for the album, which makes for interesting reading for any Uncle Tupelo fan. Out of all the Farrar/Tweedy albums, I rank this one second only to "Trace".
