Gillian Welch 'Soul Journey' LP
“It’s pretty much perfect.” – MOJO (5/5)
“There’s no contemporary artist who performs American roots music with more authenticity than Welch.”
– ASSOCIATED PRESS
“Some of the most moving performances Welch has recorded.” – ACOUSTIC GUITAR
We have been working and waiting 20 years to bring you our music on phonograph record. It took a while, because we wanted to do it the right way, the absolute best way humanly possible, and I believe that's what we've done. No sonic stone was left unturned, no nuance let fall by the wayside. There is honestly nothing else I can imagine hoping to hear out of the original tapes. It is all there in the groove. As people whose lives were changed by the sound of music coming off turntables, we humbly invite you to include us in your record collection." - Gillian Welch
