Jeff Tweedy - Letters To Santa Volume 1

Awhile back Rbally, which is gone now uploaded three shows Jeff Tweedy did for his charity. These shows were performed in people's living rooms, a really cool idea, and lord knows if i had the scratch i would have paid so much for the pleasure of him playing in my house. Anyways, luckily for us a person at the party recorded the three shows (of course Jeff was alright with it, as he and wilco endorse people recording them live). Each person chooses one song for Jeff to perform, and also the recordings include Jeff's banter with the people (which sometimes I listen to more than the songs). These performances include rare songs as well as big hits all done with one man and a guitar, except for when the crowd does backing vocals, and in the case of "Jesus, ETC" a woman plays the violin with Tweedy. Enjoy show #1, i will upload the other 2 shortly.
