Ben Saves Wilco

Even though Wilco's fifth LP, A Ghost is Born, won't be released until June 22nd, bootlegs of advance copies have been floating around the web for over a month. I've got one myself and, although there's a lot on the record that I like, I think it's a bit of a mess. So, I rolled up my sleeves and put together an alternative version. I've titled it A Ghost is Reborn.
