On Bragg's website, he said that Nonesuch (Wilco's former label) will be putting out Mermaid Avenue: The Complete Sessions. This will consist of four discs, which will include the first two Mermaid Avenue albums as well as another disc of 17 other tracks from the session. Additionally, the documentary Man in the Sand (which chronicles the making of Mermaid Avenue) will be featured in the package.
Helpfully, Consequence of Sound discovered that Amazon is saying Mermaid Avenue: The Complete Sessions will be arriving March 27. It's hard to believe it's been 14 years since the very first Mermaid Avenue. But, then again, maybe it won't be when we hear this unearthed material and compare it to Wilco's recent The Whole Love. They've definitely tinkered with their sound in the last decade or so.
