Wilco and Billy Bragg to release 'Mermaid Avenue: The Complete Sessions'

Wilco and Billy Bragg

To commemorate the 100th birthday of Woody Guthrie this year, Wilco and Billy Bragg will remaster and re-release their two-part Mermaid Avenue series which was originally released in 1998. Mermaid Avenue: The Complete Sessions will also include 17 tracks from the unreleased third Mermaid Avenue disc, and also Kim Hopkins’ 1999 film, Man in the Sand. The four disc set will be released March 27th, and will be followed by a Billy Bragg tour, according to his official blog. No word yet on if Wilco will be involved in these tour plans.

Below you can check out a video of Wilco performing "Airline to Heaven" back in 2005. The track originally appeared on Mermaid Avenue Vol. I.
