This is a cool little disc of what the Gillian Welch masterpiece album Revival sounded like at one time. To me this sounds like they were channeling alot more Gram than Maybelle, and it makes for an interesting comparison. Some of the songs sound pretty good, but some of them just don’t work well at all. I’m glad they took the minimalist approach to the final album…..either way these are great songs and it’s really hard to mess them up. Just compared to the released album they don’t compare…..at least not to my ears.
