22/356 - March 16-20

22/356 - March 16-20, originally uploaded by freeloosedirt.

Essentially, this Uncle Tupelo album is my entry into the genre of Alt Country. I read a review in Rolling Stone, where Peter Buck's role as producer was described. I was being a completest regarding the output of R.E.M. and so this was required for my collection. Little would I know that I would find a band whose song writers would captivate me from that point forward.

My interest with Uncle Tupelo was Anodyne because of Doug Sahm's song Give me back the key to my heart. I became an instant fan, although they had already disbanded. From there it was Son Volt and Wilco.

I think I always was interested in "alternative" country from the time I first heard The Byrds.
