Billy Bragg & Wilco
Mermaid Avenue, Vol. I LP + MP3 Bundle
Price as configured: $0.00
On the acclaimed Mermaid Avenue albums, Billy Bragg and Wilco put music to lyrics by folk legend Woody Guthrie for which he had not written music or made recordings. Tweedy and Bragg were "the perfect pair to conclude that Guthrie ... was a prophetic rock-and-roller with a whole lot to say," said the New York Times. "All he needed was a band and a little freedom." This original volume, which includes a duet with Natalie Merchant and Bragg, earned a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Folk Album. The 2-LP, 180-gram vinyl reissue was pressed at Pallas MFG in Diepholz, Germany, for Black Friday 2013.
