Unearthed from a cache of home demos and reel-to-reel recordings, Boots No. 2: The Lost Songs is the second release of archival music from the vault of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. This remarkable 48 song collection, spread over three volumes, was recorded between the making of Time (The Revelator) and Soul Journey. It is an intimate glimpse at the artist’s sketchbook, containing some lifelong themes as well as some flights of fancy. The versatility and quality shown here greatly expand the Welch/Rawlings canon, and confirm that the acclaimed studio albums from the pair have never been an accident but a clear artistic choice.
This deluxe package consists of a 12-inch “old-school, tip-on” style box made by Stoughton Printing, including a special 66-page song book with photos, lyrics, and guitar chords for all 48 tracks. The CD box will have all three volumes of Boots No. 2: The Lost Songs on three CDs in jewel cases.
Available exclusively from the Acony Records Online Store.
Boxsets are expected to ship by December 11th, 2020.
CD boxset preorder includes immediate digital download of Volumes 1 & 2 of Boots No. 2: The Lost Songs in MP3, FLAC, or WAV. The third volume download will be available and emailed to you upon release.
