Sam Amidon But This Chicken Proved Falsehearted on Colored LP + Download w/ Bonus Material
First Pressing on Colored Vinyl
Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Before Sam Amidon's acclaimed albums for Nonesuch Records and Bedroom Community, he released a few on his own. After a collection of traditional Irish instrumentals, Amidon delivered his true "debut" But This Chicken Proved Falsehearted. Recorded in 2005 with longtime collaborator Thomas Bartlett (Mumford & Sons, Sufjan Stevens, The National, David Byrne), the Vermont-born Amidon re-imagines traditional songs alongside covers as diverse as Mississippi John Hurt to Tears For Fears, and rearranges them into his own unique and mesmerizing compositions.
Unavailable for years, original copies now sell for top dollar on the collectors market. Nearly a decade later, But This Chicken Proved Falsehearted finally receives the reissue it deserves. To top it off, the album is making its first appearance on vinyl with a limited colored pressing with black to follow. The LP also contains a download card for the entire CD program of original tracks and bonus demos. For those who may have only heard about it, to those who have heard it and want to share or re-experience it again, But This Chicken Proved Falsehearted returns. Don't make the mistake of missing it again!
