On the two original volumes of Mermaid Avenue (1998 and 2000), Billy Bragg and Wilco set Woody Guthrie's unrecorded lyrics to music. Now, in addition to those pillars of the alt-country canon, we get 17 heretofore unreleased tracks, as well as Man in the Sand, the engaging 1999 documentary about the collaboration, in the must-have box set Mermaid Avenue: The Complete Sessions, out now.
