Iron And Wine Archive Series Volume No. 2 on Limited Edition Colored 7" Vinyl + Download
Featuring 2 Previously Unreleased Home Recordings of Neil Young's "Albuquerque" & Four Tops' "It's The Same Old Song"
Limited Edition of 2000 Colored Copies
Iron & Wine's Archive Series Volume No. 2 collects two cover versions of classic songs found in Sam Beam's early home recorded cassettes and presents them on limited edition colored 7" vinyl. These two covers - Side A features Neil Young's "Albuquerque" while Side B features "It's The Same Old Song" by the Four Tops - augment the Sam Beam original songs on Archive Series Volume No. 1, all of which were performed and recorded at home on a 4-track cassette before he became Iron & Wine.
This 7" offering follows the tradition of Iron & Wine's Two Sides of George 7" (Suicide Squeeze) which featured Little Feat's "Trouble" and George Michael's "One More Try" and cover portraits by Plastic Crimewave. Sam has long performed cover songs from many eras and artists - from The Flaming Lips "Waitin' For A Superman" to New Orders "Love Vigilantes" and of course The Postal Service's "Such Great Heights."
