Wilco - Kamera
Wilco's legendary album "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" had its 10th birthday last week. It is a critical darling, and steeped in music business lore; having been dropped by one arm of a label to be snatched up by another, and having much strife during its recording that was put to video and saved for posterity in the documentary "I Am Trying To Break Your Heart." It is considered by many in music circles to be the best rock record of the new millennia, and took Wilco into new creative territory that they still inhabit today. We have particular strong memories of a great vacation that this album was a soundtrack to, and it will forever be burned as an important album in our life. Happy birthday YHF...and many returns.
