Landmark Americana album, 'No Depression' (Legacy Edition) by Uncle Tupelo. Originally released in 1990 'No Depression' is a genuine milestone in American rock 'n' roll, a still striking fusion of traditional folk and country with post punk innovation and hardcore ferocity. The album, recorded at Boston's Fort Apache South with iconic producers Sean Slade and Paul Q. Kolderie (Radiohead, Belly, Pixies, Dinosaur Jr.), struck a loud, twangy chord throughout the American Indie Underground, inspiring countless bands as well as an online notice board and a magazine that served to both forward and document the thriving musical movement that came to be known as alt-country. 'No Depression' (Legacy Edition) sees the original classic album remastered and augmented by twenty-two extraordinary extras, including for the first time on CD, 1989's legendary Not Forever, Just For Now demo tape. Jay Farrar (guitar / vocals, Son Volt), Jeff Tweedy (bass / vocals, Wilco), and Mike Heidorn (drums, Son Volt) first came together as The Primitives, busting out teenage garage rock in their hometown of Belleville, Illinois. Fueled by the potent new influence of American roots music, the trio soon adopted the name Uncle Tupelo and began veering into uncharted creative territory.
