TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – ‘Yankee Hotel Foxtrot’ – 4th LP By WILCO

Remarkable albums from the past…

‘Yankee Hotel Foxtrot’ by WILCO
Released: 18 September 2001 – the band’s 4th longplayer

ROLLING STONE review: “This is how screwed up the music business is in the early twenty-

The company reacted as if the music was caked in anthrax, throwing the album back at Wilco and arranging for them to leave the label, immediately. ‘Yankee Hotel Foxtrot’ now arrives in stores, intact, on Nonesuch. Like Reprise, Nonesuch is a subsidiary of AOL Time Warner. Essentially, the mother firm paid for the album twice. I would love to see one of the suits explain that to the shareholders…”
