Iron & Wine

Archive Series Volume No 1

Black Cricket Record 26132.1

Released on February 24, 2015



Vinyl includes MP3 download card

Iron And Wine’s ‘Archive Series Volume No. 1’ is the first in a series - Sam Beam will be gathering otherwise unreleased home recordings, covers, live sets, and curiosities from his entire career as Iron And Wine and releasing them on his own label - Black Cricket Recording Co.

This first release taps into a set of songs created before Sam was Iron And Wine, when he was making music without the public in mind. The songs on ‘Volume No. 1’ came to life at the same time as those selected for Iron And Wine’s debut album,’ The Creek Drank The Cradle’ (Sub Pop, 2002, 197K Sales ToDate). Performed and recorded at home on a 4-track cassette - the songs on ‘Creek’ were only 11 of the many crafted by Sam prior to his debut. Some of this material has been widely bootlegged, but has never received a wide-spread or proper release.

’Archive Series Volume No. 1’ collects 16 of these unreleased early home recordings for the first time.

This initial chapter in the ‘Archive Series’ has been digitally transferred from the original cassettes and packaged in gatefold artwork featuring the Bird of Paradise Quilt (licensed from the American Folk Art Museum).
