Wilco
Montreal, Quebec 2005 [no label 2CD]
Metropolis, Canada, June 28, 2005

As is their wont to do cover songs, Jeff Tweedy chose an especially intimate moment in Montreal to sing The Band’s trademark tune, I Shall Be Released. I do not recall him ever singing this ever again. Right down to the switches in pitch and classic instrumentation, the ominuous piano that introduces Tweedy as acoustic guitars pick up the melody, you are reminded of Richard Manuel’s famous moment in the spotlight in the closing moments of The Last Waltz. Wilco mesmerised with the show’s final song.

Known to be anti-Bush and anti-Iraq War, Wilco pepper their show with War On War, Hell Is Chrome and Tweedy comments that sometimes he thinks the film The Manchurian Candidate is scary as real life. "Be frightened with me," he beckons the audience.

Wilco are one of those bands whose repertoire improves with each new album. They are a hard-working band, and like The Band, always on the road. Their original material shines, even as they polish them further with each new performance.
