Wilco Announces Deluxe Editions Of ‘A.M.’ & ‘Being There’

On December 1 Wilco will unveil deluxe editions of the band’s first two studio albums. The reissues of 1995’s A.M. and 1996’s Being There are set to include previously unreleased live tracks and studio recordings. Both deluxe editions are currently available for pre-order here on vinyl and CD. Digital versions are also forthcoming.

Rolling Stone reports the reissue of Wilco’s debut album, A.M., “will feature eight unreleased bonus tracks, including an early version of ‘Outtasite (Outta Mind),’ and Uncle Tupelo’s last studio recording, When You Find Trouble.'” Bassist John Stirratt, the only member of Wilco besides frontman Jeff Tweedy remaining from the original lineup, wrote liner notes for the deluxe reissue of A.M..

The deluxe edition of the double album Being There will be expanded to include a disc chock full of outtakes, alternative versions and demos. Being There’s reissue also features a live set Wilco recorded at L.A.’s Troubadour on November 12, 1996 as well as a four-song performance the band laid down on November 13, 1996 at KCRW in Santa Monica.
