A special double LP Record Store Day 2022 exclusive, featuring two albums by the late Jay Bennett (Wilco) alongside the 2021 feature-length documentary "Where are you, Jay Bennett?," packaged in a gatefold jacket.
"Where are you, Jay Bennett?" is a feature-length documentary on Jay Bennett, a legendary musician who, as a member of Wilco, was a large part of the genius behind their three seminal albums (Being There, Summerteeth, and Yankee Hotel Foxtrot -- he co-wrote most of Summerteeth and YHF with Jeff Tweedy) as well as the Mermaid Avenue/Woody Guthrie sessions with Billy Bragg, and who went on to a critically acclaimed solo career, before dying tragically at the age of 45
"Whatever Happened I Apologize" is best described by Brian Robbins of JamBands.com: "a departure from much of his past work. Simply put, the master of what-this-track-needs-is-one-more-weird-noise-and-it'll-be-perfect (and staunch defender of vinyl) has offered up a digital-only acoustic album much of it just the man, his guitar, and some pretty open emotions.”
"Kicking at the Perfumed Air" is a beautiful collection of personal songs that Jay Bennett was working on when he died. Released posthumously, the album was praised for its subtle beauty. Pitchfork said: "But Perfumed works simply because Bennett was such a keen craftsman, his mournfulness so elegantly expressed, and as such, nevertheless serves as a fitting elegy for an under-appreciated and occasionally misunderstood songsmith and musician taken too soon."

Live from Blackalachia on Clear Green color vinyl is a live album and movie composed of dynamic band arrangements from Moses Sumney's first two albums. It was recorded in the Blue Ridge Mountains in the summer of 2020.
In January 2020, Moses Sumney and band gathered in Western North Carolina to design festival-ready versions of songs from Aromanticism and græ. After the world shut down and tour was canceled, Moses maintained a desire to share the show, but in a new way—a concert film. So in the summer of 2020, the band reconvened in Asheville and designed the show for Live From Blackalachia. Moses directed the conceptual concert film and released it in both audio and visual formats.
