This is an album that brilliantly explores heartbreak, loss and the emotional wounds of time gone by. It enunciates the pain of the unspoken with a precise honesty. 'What did it you want it to be?' Indeed.

The barfly's wearing of life's disappointments, and its aching lost potential, dominates. The storytellers in these songs have 'seen things you people have never seen'.

This vinyl rerelease is awesome in its detail. The sound is mesmerising. Flawlessly pure. Every note floats free in a space of its own. It's going to be written about as a deal breaker in terms of what a vinyl reissue should/could sound like.

A bargain. Buy now. Because people talk, blogs blah blah and reviewers accord provenance that becomes other's investment. If you loved this before on CD this is essential;the music is operating on a new platform. If you have never heard its singular, wounded wisdom then now is the time to sit down and listen.

Superb vinyl pressing. The first one received had a click throughout side 1 track 3 but amazon replaced and this one is perfect. Great artwork, so good to see an artist giving the vinyl something more than a fuzzy blown up version of the CD cover. The album is up there with Revelator as Gillian and Dave's best work. "Hard Times" is THE anthem for today! The first press is likely to become a collectors item so get one quick!

Gillian Welch and David Rawlins are back in peak form here. I have all the early cds, which are superb, but sort of lost interest after Soul Journey which I found somewhat lacklustre.This was probably accentuated by seeing them live where they were mind-blowingly good. How only two people playing acoustic instruments and singing can produce such a full and joyous sound is miraculous. I had, in the meantime, heard a few tracks from this so bought it and am glad I did as it is good.

A truly wonderful and extremely welcome vinyl re-issue release. The sound quality is outstanding, the packaging beautiful, artwork gorgeous.

The album itself is a understated masterpiece and there is no need to say anything else...if this is the sign of things to come from Acony, these complete vinyl re-issues will be worth the wait. I'm assuming they are working the re-issues backwards by starting with Harrow & The Harvest (which is annoying as Revival is one of my favourite albums and will potentially be the last one). Buy now!

Had the CD anyway but could not resist this for my collection. It's beautiful in every way. Well done G.W and D.R.
Anyone else out there now buying vinyl to replace their CD collection? What goes around comes around.

Sadly a poor pressing - badly crackly even after a pro clean and a bit warped too. Such a let down after such a long wait for this vinyl.

A masterpiece. For me, this is one of the greatest albums ever made. And absolutely timeless, so that you'll be listening to it when you're old and grey.

Excellent analog recording and pressing of fine acoustic songs, sympathetically mastered with great care.

I have this album on CD, but the vinyl takes it to another dimension. The guitar is do defined and the vocals spookily real. I hope this release means they will publish all GW titles on vinyl - I will be first in the queue !
