Archive Series Volume No. 116 Previously Unreleased Early Home Recordings
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).

Alternative rock first emerged in Britain in the late 70s and early 80s, but it didn’t really hit its stride until the 90s with the arrival of bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jane’s Addiction. That was also right around the time that Nirvana and Pearl Jam fueled the grunge rock explosion.
And when you want the full and real alt rock experience, you’ve gotta try it out on vinyl, and SoundStage Direct is your one-stop shop for all the best alternative rock vinyls.
