I AM TRYING TO BREAK YOUR HEART

Posted on

Sam Jones got spectacular access for his behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (he even has Jeff Tweedy spewing in the toilet), and fans will relish the intimate look at the album’s sometimes painful birth.

Fortunately, this package makes up for it with an excellent second disc filled with unreleased outtake performances.
