Ok, So If Ever We Have A Bar Mitzvah, We’re Hiring Wilco

Some years ago, when we worked at AOL, a prominent senior executive hired the Dave Matthews Band for his daughter’s Bat Mitzvah.  Now that we have listened to the magnificent set of covers Wilco just released for sale on their website, we feel duty-bound to alert billionaires everywhere, this is the cover band you want to hire!  Just the segue from “Dead Flowers” to “Simple Twist of Fate” shows off the band’s breadth. By the time they transition from the Kink’s “Waterloo Sunset” to Abba’s “Waterloo,” they’ve not just proved their point — yeah, best cover band ever — they’ve delighted us sufficiently to throw this into the pile for consideration, later this year, for Tulip Frenzy’s Album of The Year.

Seriously, Who Wouldn’t Download This Set of Wilco Covers?
