An obvious comment, not that I object to an excellent album getting free publicity: Having spoken to Fiona's manager, Jon Brion's manager and several people at Sony, all of whom have taken the fifth, I get the feeling maybe this extraordinary album hasn't been any kind of shelved. Having seen Fiona's capability for unchecked self-expression, don't you think she'd have something to say if her album was really getting the Wilco? There are about one hundred obstacles that can hold up the release of an album, some of them legitimate, some of them legally-binding, and some of them both. Unless someone can dig up a copy of Ms. Apple's contract and get her to talk, the only hard "data" are one Jon Brion interview and one, not unprecedented, delayed release date. Everything else is just speculation.
