Last year, just before Google bought YouTube, Warner Music announced a deal with YouTube to provide videos in exchange for a slice of the advertising revenue.
I had complete forgotten about this until I was looking for video links for Neil Young’s Massey release and stumbled across a couple uploaded by a YouTube user by the name of warnerbrosrecords who has uploaded all kinds of great shit in the past month (as well as a bunch of plain old shit).
For example, I found three old school Wilco videos for “I Must Be High” and “Box Full of Letters” off their underrated debut, A.M., and “Outtasite (Outta Mind)” off Being There. I wonder if freely sharing these videos will encourage people to buy some albums. What a concept!
Wilco – Box Full Of Letters from A.M.
Wilco – I Must Be High from A.M.
Wilco – Outtasite (Outta Mind) from Being There
Damn, those dudes look like babies!
One thought on “Warner Videos on YouTube, including Wilco”
Wow, Tweedy does a good job cracking non-ironic smiles and generally appearing not to be a tortured artist in these (admittedly very cheesy) videos. Can’t imagine him in his current incarnation agreeing to do that Outtamind video.
