A documentary film that follows Wilco's recording of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Initially intended to follow the collaborative process of making a highly anticipated album. The band breaking apart and rejection by their label, Reprise Records added unexpected drama.
The film features 17 additional Wilco songs, alternate versions of songs, and live concert performances.
YHF was completed in 2001, but Reprise Records refused to release it without some changes. Reprise quickly released Wilco. Wilco acquired the rights to YHF
After their dismissal, Wilco streamed the entire album for free on their website. In November 2001, Wilco signed with Nonesuch Records. The album was officially released 5 month later.
