Wilco “AM”

Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#251 in the Series) is Wilco, AM.

Today we’re featuring Wilco’s 1995 debut album, AM. Even though the band has been producing great music for years, I still prefer their debut.  This one was a little more ‘Americana/Alt-Country-ish’ that suited my tastes.   If you haven’t heard it, give it a listen.

AM did not chart. Those days would come soon enough.

(I know, short and sweet today. We’ll have more to say tomorrow.)

Here’s all the info.
