Info for Together At Last



Jeff Tweedy has been writing and recording music for over three decades now, putting his indelible songwriting stamp on the legacies of Uncle Tupelo, Golden Smog, and, of course, the immortal Wilco. However, all these years later, Together At Last marks his very first all-acoustic release. Over the course of 11 tracks, culled from his sprawling discography and re-recorded here in stripped-down renditions, Tweedy sheds the sonic experimentation that has helped define his legacy and instead presents these songs in a naked light, exposing the bleary-eyed balladeer that is always at the heart of every Tweedy production. From whisky-drunk country rock buskers Uncle Tupelo to masters of the studio-as-an-instrument Wilco, Jeff Tweedy’s songwriting may take on many guises, but on Together At Last, he connects the dots between them all simply by doing what he does best: picking up a guitar and laying his soul down bare.

„Generally, when the leader of a group of note makes a solo album, the purpose is to provide a platform to do something that couldn't be done within the creative boundaries of the band. That notion applies to Jeff Tweedy's first proper solo album, 2017's Together at Last, though in a rather unexpected way. For Together at Last, Tweedy literally opts not to have a band with him for a change -- this is a set of 11 tunes from his back catalog, recorded solo, with Tweedy's voice, acoustic guitar, and harmonica only occasionally reinforced with some very subtle guitar overdubs. If you've always wanted to hear Jeff Tweedy play a solo set in a whisper-quiet folk club, where his vocals don't have to compete with drums or amplifiers, then Together at Last is the absolutely next best thing. On one hand, the album invites the question of just why Tweedy opted to re-record a handful of his old tunes without his partners from Wilco or Loose Fur, and the lack of any new material makes this play like a live album with the audience conspicuous in its absence. On the other, if you don't mind the fact that these are all songs the average fan of Tweedy's work already knows rather well, you're rewarded with a set of simple but lovely performances. Jeff Tweedy may not be a virtuoso as a vocalist or a guitarist, but he absolutely knows what makes his songs work, and the intimacy of these recordings allows him to explore the nooks and crannies of the songs without having to make room for anyone else, and the results are charming, emotionally effective, and sometimes quite moving. And he's smart enough to chose a set of songs that work well stripped to their framework, and if this set is by no means "Jeff Tweedy's Greatest Hits," it does wonders to show off his estimable skills as a lyricist and spinner of melodies. If Together at Last is a minor work in Tweedy's catalog, it's a simple but genuine pleasure that may convert a few doubters who haven't been won over by Wilco's eclecticism.“ (Mark Deming, AMG)

Jeffrey Scot “Jeff” Tweedy
(born August 25, 1967 in Belleville, Illinois, United States) is an American songwriter, musician and leader of the band Wilco. Tweedy joined rockabilly band The Plebes with high school friend Jay Farrar in the early 1980s, The Plebes changed their name to The Primitives in 1984, and subsequently to Uncle Tupelo. Uncle Tupelo garnered enough support to earn a record deal and to tour nationally. After releasing four albums, the band broke up in 1994 because of conflicts between Tweedy and Farrar. In 1994, Tweedy formed Wilco with John Stirratt, Max Johnston, and Ken Coomer. Wilco has released eight albums and found commercial success with their albums Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, A Ghost Is Born, Sky Blue Sky and Wilco (The Album). The band also released two collaboration albums with Billy Bragg and one with The Minus 5. Jeff Tweedy has been the recipient of two Grammy Awards, including Best Alternative Album for A Ghost Is Born. Tweedy has also participated in a number of side groups including Golden Smog and Loose Fur, has released a book of poems, and has released a DVD of solo performances. He was originally influenced by punk and country music, but has recently reflected more experimental themes in his music. Jeff is currently touring with his side project “Tweedy”.

This album contains no booklet.
