Mastered for vinyl direct from the analog tapes by Gillian Welch and David Rawlings on their own custom-built VMS 80 lathe with Ortofon amplifiers, this is the long-awaited first pressing of Welch's 2011 gem The Harrow & The Harvest plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings. Grammy-nominated for Best Engineered Album (Non Classical) and Best Folk Album, the deluxe package includes new full-color artwork by John Dyer Baizley, a gatefold old-style tip-on jacket printed on special paper, a printed sleeve, and lyric insert (included for the first time).
"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." – Gillian Welch
