March 16-20, 1992 is the third studio album by Alternative Country band Uncle Tupelo, released in 1992. The title refers to the five-day span during which the album was recorded. An almost entirely acoustic recording, the album features original songs and covers of traditional Folk songs in near equal number, and was produced by R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck.
In 1990, Buck attended an Uncle Tupelo concert at the 40 Watt Club in Athens, Georgia. Buck was particularly impressed with the band's rendition of the Louvin Brothers' "Great Atomic Power", and contacted the band after the show. Uncle Tupelo singers Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy exchanged their interests in Bluegrass music with Buck, and decided to collaborate on an acoustic music project in the future.
March 16-20, 1992 sold more copies than their first two albums, No Depression [MOVLP1014] and Still Feel Gone [MOVLP1618], combined. The album generated mostly positive reviews. Jason Ankeny of Allmusic called the album "a brilliant resurrection of a bygone era of American folk artistry". Bill Wyman of Entertainment Weekly remarked that it was "a moving and sincere New Depression manifesto".
