Listing Detail Tabs

On its third outing, Uncle Tupelo decided to leave the electric guitars behind, opting instead for an earthy acoustic sound. (In fact, the album's only electric noise is guitar feedback on "Wait Up," provided by producer Peter Buck of R.E.M.). The resulting MARCH 16-20, 1992 is a folksy mix of traditional and original songs filled with the rural and industrial imagery of Appalachia.

Tupelo originals like "Grindstone," "Shaky Ground," and "Black Eye" are heartfelt songs about working-class woes, while traditional tunes such as "Coalminers," "Satan, Your Kingdom Must Come Down," and the Louvin Brothers' "Atomic Power" are inspired interpretations. Before the somber closing of "Wipe the Clock," the band performs the gorgeous "Sandusky," which ranks along with the most beautiful instrumentals ever to grace any rock, folk, or country album. Throughout MARCH 16-20, 1992, the Farrar/Tweedy originals and traditional songs blend effortlessly, tied together by sincerity and earnestness far too rare in contemporary music.
