Wrap your head around this one.  A documentary of the band Wilco is being postponed from being released on Blu-ray due to the band's objection.  That's right, Wilco is trying to persuade fans not to by the Blu-ray release.

Wilco sent an email out to fans with updated tours dates, as well as discouraging them from the Blu-ray.  According to the band the Blu-ray costs twice as much as the DVD and the source material is not worthy of Blu-ray treatment.  The band also writes that they had no prior knowledge of any audio remastering for the Blu-ray.

The label has postponed the release until they can apparently show the band the increase in video/audio quality of the Blu-ray over the DVD.
