The Wilco band leader has gathered up a bunch of songs from his career (including past favorites “Via Chicago,” “Muzzle of Bees” and “I’m Trying to Break Your Heart”) to build an acoustic solo album behind that warm hug of a voice. The first taste of new solo album, features 11 acoustic “reinterpretations”  “Together At Last”  songs stretching back through his long recording career, including stripped-down versions of Wilco staples like “I’m Always in Love” and “Hummingbird,” plus some selections from side projects Loose Fur and Golden Smog. Plus Loose Fur crawler “Laminated Cat” (from 2003),

Together At Last: Loft Acoustic Session 1 — eleven new solo acoustic recordings of classic Wilco tunes plus Loose Fur and Golden Smog rarities.
