Gillian Welch - The Harrow & The Harvest Vinyl
180g LP, "Old Style" tip-on gatefold jacket with custom paper, new full colour cover art by John Dyer Baizley, printed sleeve, lyric insert.
Gillian Welch’s 2011 album, the GRAMMY-nominated The Harrow & The Harvest, described by the Washington Post as “Welch...at her haunting, heart-aching best,” will be released for the first time ever on vinyl via her own Acony Records on July 28th.
Of the process Gillian Welch reveals, "We have been working and waiting 20 years to bring you our music on phonograph record. It took a while, because we wanted to do it the right way, the absolute best way humanly possible, and I believe that's what we've done. No sonic stone was left unturned, no nuance let fall by the wayside. There is honestly nothing else I can imagine hoping to hear out of the original tapes. It is all there in the groove. As people whose lives were changed by the sound of music coming off turntables, we humbly invite you to include us in your record collection."
The single LP will be packaged in an "Old Style" tip-on gatefold jacket with custom paper and will include full color cover art by artist John Dyer Baizley, also of the group Baroness, as well as a printed sleeve, and full lyric insert. The album was mastered directly from the original tapes through custom Ortofon amplifiers to a Neumann VMS-80 cutting system and plated and pressed on standard-weight audiophile-quality vinyl at Quality Record Pressings.

Gillian Welch is brilliant on this collaboration with her husband David Rawlings; the Harrow and the Harvest was nominated for best Folk Album for the 54th Grammy Awards. The album was mastered from the analogue tapes and the pressing is top notch. The gatefold cover is gorgeous; run your finger across the art work and feel the quality. This is a hard to find record and thanks to Happy Valley for stocking it up. Get it while you can.
