In 2008 Wilco did a run in Chicago where they played every song they had officially released plus a few extras like some of the stuff they did with Billy Bragg on the Mermaid Avenue sessions. Pretty much every night was epic with them playing about 30 songs a show. I posted the run in a low quality MP3 format ages ago, but it got deleted by Mediafire or whatever. Thanks to the Owl and Bear I now have the entire run in FLAC format. There are also multiple sources for each show and I’ll be posting those as well. I decided to put the various sources into one post with notes on their details.

I’m also going to comment on which source I think is better for each show, but with the caveat that I haven’t had time to listen to every note from every show and every source. My judgment will come from a few tracks through my computer speakers. Your mileage may very. I will however include one song in MP3 format to download as a way for you all to listen and make your own choices.
