Description

Audiophile Quality 180g 45RPM Vinyl 2LP Reissue Mastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering and Pressed at MPO!

Craft Recordings presents 2020 reissues of the three best-selling albums from Grammy Award-winning Americana trio, Nickel Creek: Nickel Creek (2000), This Side (2002), and Why Should the Fire Die? (2005). Each audiophile-quality reissue is housed in a double-disc, gatefold jacket. All albums were cut at 45RPM and have been pressed on 180-gram vinyl at MPO, featuring mastering from the original tapes or high-resolution sources by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering.

An inimitable merger of pop hooks, bluegrass craft, virtuosic musicianship, and unbeatable acoustic sounds, 2002's This Side is the Grammy-winning sophomore record from the bluegrass/progressive folk trio Nickel Creek. Expertly produced by mentor Alison Krauss, as was the group's 1999 breakthrough predecessor Nickel Creek, This Side finds permanent members Chris Thile (mandolin), Sara Watkins (fiddle) and Sean Watkins (guitar) expanding their sound and becoming the most original and inventive bluegrass band of modern times in the process.

The Absolute Sound's Neil Gader captured the group's appeal, stating: "The charm of this Southern Cal-based band stems from its fresh challenge to our preconceptions of homespun musical genres like folk and bluegrass – Nickel Creek simultaneously honors old-world traditions while respinning them with contemporary country-pop hooks and hill-country accents. Here, the echoes of bluegrass legends Flatt & Scruggs and The Dillards rub shoulders with those of the Beatles and Eagles. With Sara Watkins on violin and Sean Watkins on guitar (both sing lead as well), Nickel Creek offers crisp ensemble playing, but it's Chris Thile's mandolin virtuosity and quirky singing that puts the caffeine in the coffee and keeps it percolating."

Highlights include a cover of Pavement's "Spit on a Stranger" and originals "Speak" and "Beauty and the Mess."
