Wilco & Mavis Staples: “The Weight”

Earlier this year I was lucky enough to see Mavis Staples sing The Weight live on a pretty magical night of live music. I’m not sure I’d ever anticipated hearing that, and it’s a fond memory of the year.

Mavis singing The Band classic with Wilco live in Chicago? I think my mind would have been blown. It’s probably a good thing I wasn’t there. This will have to do for now (though you can hear the live version in the Roadcase on the Wilco site for now.)
