Jeff Tweedy

Sunken Treasure: Live in the Pacific Northwest (Nonesuch)


During five nights of poignant solo acoustic concerts presented last February in such picturesque locales as Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco, Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy delivered 18 emotive tales from Wilco, Uncle Tupelo, and Loose Fur -- each tune given new and moody life when performed solo by the scruffy troubadour. Moving performances of "War on War" and "Shot in the Arm" are intermingled with heartbreaking and humorous onstage observations from the singer-songwriter, brooding on everything from fatherhood to his much-publicized battle with addiction.
