$ 54.99


Release Date: 05/12/23

The music, life, and passions of the rock 'n' roll genius, from Wilco through his solo career to his untimely and tragic death.

BLACK 2xLP + DVD. A special double LP Record Store Day 2022 exclusive, featuring 2 albums by the late Jay Bennett (Wilco) alongside the 2021 feature-length documentary 'Where are you, Jay Bennett?,' packaged in a gatefold jacket.

'Where are you, Jay Bennett?' is a feature-length documentary on Jay Bennett, a legendary musician, who as a member of Wilco, was a large part of the genius behind their three seminal albums (Being There, Summerteeth, and Yankee Hotel Foxtrot -- he co-wrote most of Summerteeth and YHF with Jeff Tweedy) as well as the Mermaid Avenue/Woody Guthrie sessions with Billy Bragg, and who went on to a critically acclaimed solo career, before dying tragically at the age of 45.

'Whatever Happened I Apologize' is described by Brian Robbins of JamBands.com: 'a departure from much of his past work. Simply put, the master of what-this-track-needs-is-one-more-weird-noise-and-it'll-be-perfect (and staunch defender of vinyl) has offered up a digital-only acoustic album much of it just the man, his guitar, and some pretty open emotions.'

'Kicking at the Perfumed Air' is a beautiful collection of personal songs that Jay Bennett was working on when he died. Released posthumously, the album was praised for its subtle beauty. Pitchfork said: 'But Perfumed works simply because Bennett was such a keen craftsman, his mournfulness so elegantly expressed, and as such, nevertheless serves as a fitting elegy for an under-appreciated and occasionally misunderstood songsmith and musician taken too soon.'
