Wilco’s great leap forward from 1996 gets an entirely deserved deluxe box set treatment. Farrar's Son Volt gained plenty of acclaim and even some commercial traction with their debut Trace whereas Wilco's competent but distinctly unremarkable first album . also reissued with extras) elicited sparse notices, few of them exceedingly enthusiastic.
