Night one of Wilco's five-night "Winter Residency" at the Riviera Theater in Chicago. Due to horrible traffic, I only arrived 15 minutes before showtime, and was left with a less-than-optimal location on the far left side of the balcony (though fortunately, near the front). The recording sounds a little distant because I was not in a direct line to the speakers, but overall I think it's a very pleasant recording. The mix was very good and I was fortunate to be in an oasis of silence -- so despite the fact that the Riv was oversold (every seat was filled, the floor was so crowded that you couldn't move, and there were hundreds of people spilling into the aisles and around the bars), there is almost no crowd interference on this recording. Hopefully someone (Jerry?) will post a recording from closer to the PA, but if not this is a very solid, listenable recording.

As for the show itself, it was great, and very long by Wilco standards. Wilco's goal is to play every track from their 7 "official" albums over the course of the five nights. Jeff Tweedy clarified last night that they will also play as many b-sides, unreleased tracks, and Mermaid Avenue (not technically "official" Wilco albums, since they were collaborations with Billy Bragg) as they can. Last night they knocked out a large chunk of their catalog with 31 songs -- several of which (for example, the "Being There" rarities "What's the World Got In Store" and "Why Would You Wanna Live?") have not been performed in years. The next four nights ought to be very interesting.

Feel free to remaster to your heart's content, but if you choose to post your version please document what you did.
