In this rare footage, Wilco, Mavis Staples, and Nick Lowe rehearse the classic tune, The Weight, backstage at the Civic Opera House in Chicago. Yes, Wilco and Mavis Staples are rare talents, but this video feels more like a group of friends jamming in mom’s basement. And they sound phenomenal. This video is a treasure; a pleasure to watch.
