WILCO – Stonesesque ‘BEING THERE’ Album Released 25 Years Ago

Back in time

29 October 2021

Band: WILCO (Chicago)
Who: Singer-songwriter Jeff Tweedy‘s combo
Active: Since 1994 / 11 LPs so far

Anniversary album: BEING THERE 2nd LP
Released: 29 October 1996 – 25 years ago today

AllMusic wrote; “Being There’s 19 tracks are individually outstanding, and taken
together, they add up to a three-way cross between Neil Young’s Harvest, the Rolling
Stones’ Exile on Main St., and Big Star’s 3rd that still leaves room for some impressive
tricks of its own. If Being There isn’t Wilco’s best album, it’s the one that staked their
claim as an important American band, and it’s a rich, dazzling experience from
beginning to end.”
