Acony Records is proud to announce a special limited release of The Harrow & The Harvest by Gillian Welch on reel-to-reel tape.
Housed in a deluxe slipcase and custom tape boxes beautifully made by Stoughton printing and featuring the original artwork by John Dyer Baizley, each reel-to-reel set is personally produced by David Rawlings at Woodland Studios in Nashville, TN and hand leadered on two ¼” archival quality SM911 tapes. The set also includes a complete song lyric sheet as well as an exclusive photo print by Mark Seliger, hand printed by the artist himself, autographed by Mark Seliger, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings.
These 1/4" two track 15ips one-to-one duplicates are produced in real time from an original 30ips 1/2" master tape on meticulously calibrated ATR 102 tape machines through a custom distribution system providing proper impedance matching and the most direct path for the highest possible fidelity.
Showcasing this remarkable album in a way you've never experienced it before, this ultimate package brings outstanding sonic fidelity and clarity to The Harrow & The Harvest, heralded as Welch’s greatest achievement to date, and GRAMMY nominated for Best Folk Album and Best Engineered Album.
