ENTER TO WIN A COPY OF SOUL JOURNEY AUTOGRAPHED BY GILLIAN WELCH AND DAVID RAWLINGS
It's a fifteen year old album, but it's finally getting the vinyl treatment it deserves. And partially that's because Gillian Welch and David Rawlings are taking matters into their own hands--literally. The pair bought and restored an Ortofan VMS-80 cutting system and now handle the lathe-cutting part of the vinyl mastering process in-house. They're working their way through the early classic releases from Welch's career (on which Rawlings was already an integral musical component) and releasing them on their own Acony Records label. The latest is 2003's SOUL JOURNEY, their fourth record, and the first released after her appearance on the O Brother, Where Art Thou soundtrack brought her more mainstream attention, in record stores now for the first time on vinyl.
