3. Theologians
4. One Wing
5. A Magazine Called Sunset
6. Impossible Germany
7. Sonny Feeling
8. Wilco (The Song)
9. The Late Greats
10. Either Way

Confirmed. I don't think that disqualifies it though.

I've gotta say, I don't think the "More Like the Moon" stuff should count, since those were mostly outtakes from the YHF sessions. I guess I'm suggesting that we change it to a post-Bennett mix.

Under those criteria, here are my faves:

- At Least That's What You Said
- Hummingbird
- Handshake Drugs
- Company in My Back
- Theologians
- The Late Greats
- Kicking Television (from the Panthers EP)
- Either Way
- Walken
- What Light
- The Thanks I Get (SBS bonus)
- Wilco (the song)
- You Never Know
- I'll Fight

That's only 14. I'm sure there's another that I'm just not thinking of. If I were to include the More Like the Moon EP, I'd throw in:

- A Magazine Called Sunset (one of the all-time best Tweedy/Bennett songs)
- Bob Dylan's 49th Beard (which was actually better at the Lounge Ax when it was half-finished)
