Uncle Tupelo Embark on Extensive Reissue Campaign for Record Store Day
By Alex HudsonUncle Tupelo have been inactive for nearly two decades, but the band's presence is still felt thanks to Jeff Tweedy's work as the leader of Wilco. Given their continued popularity, it's only fitting that the defunct alt-country crew will reissue the bulk of their catalogue this Record Store Day (April 21).

The band will put out heavyweight vinyl versions of 1990's No Depression, 1991's Still Feel Gone and 1992's March 16-20, 1992. For the fist four weeks, these will be available only at participating Record Store Day locations. It appears that 1993's Anodyne is not part of the reissue campaign.

Already own all of Uncle Tupelo's LPs? Then you may be more interested in The Seven Inch Singles, a box set containing four vinyl singles. This includes the unreleased single "This Year" backed with "Pickle River" (according to an essay by drummer Mike Heidorn, the latter is an instrumental that was one of the first songs the band ever recorded).

The other singles in the box are: "I Got Drunk" / "Sin City," "Gun" / "I Wanna Destroy You," and "Sauget Wind" /"Looking for a Way Out" (acoustic version).

In related news, Wilco will celebrate Record Store Day by releasing last year's The Whole Love as a deluxe box set containing a clear red ten-inch with "Speak into the Rose," a clear seven inch with "I Might" backed with "I Love My Label," a sticker, and a slip mat.

Two corrections needed: 1) Jay Farrar is still active, not just Jeff in Wilco, in fact Jay has something coming out on RSD as well. 2) Anodyne is already available as 180g vinyl so it doesn't need to be part of this re-issue campaign.
