This live in-studio set remakes highlights from 2011’s excellent The Whole Love, a homespun survey of Wilco’s avant-garage skill set. Changes are subtle – guitar noise is rearranged on "Dawned on Me," strings are dialed back on"Black Moon" – and sometimes barely discernible. More illuminating are the revisions of two older songs. Ten years and two long wars later, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot’s "War on War" is more grizzled, with guitar convulsions trumping synth convulsions, and A.M.’s “Passenger Side” sounds like a post-rehab honky-tonk cautionary tale. A cover of Nick Lowe’s "Cruel to Be Kind," with the songwriter himself handling lead vocals, also sticks close to the original. No wheels reinvented here, but they all roll pretty good.
