Video: Wilco, Nick Lowe & Mavis Staples rehearse "The Weight"

Wilco with Nick Lowe

Wilco recently posted up a video of themselves rehearsing a cover of The Band's "The Weight" with Nick Lowe and Mavis Staples. It is a stripped down version of the song, filmed backstage at Chicago's Civic Opera House this past December. Watch the clip where Mavis, Lowe and Tweedy trade off verses, below.

And as one Youtube commentor put it best:

It's as if all the forces for good music in this world combined together in a small room and decided to bless the ears of all who were (and are) smart enough to spend five minutes with the lot of them. To whoever had a camera rolling when this unfolded, thank you!
