Uncle Tupelo‘s critically acclaimed debut album No Depression will be getting a deluxe reissue on January 28 when it is released via Sony Legacy. After the band broke up in 1994, Tweedy went on to form Wilco and Farrar started Son Volt. You could say the rest is history.
In addition to the full length album, the reissue will feature early demos as well as a recently unearthed 10 song demo tape entitled Not Forever, Just Now that was recorded in 1989 by the original trio of Jeff Tweedy, Jay Farrar, and Mike Heidorn.
You can stream an early demo of “I Got Drunk” over at Rolling Stone. >> Full Story
