Gillian Welch, “Boots No.1, The Original Revival Bootleg”
Label: Acony Records
Reviewed by: Kim Walter

Bootlegs, outtakes and previously unpublished recordings from he”Revival” album, all original recordings from the 90’s. Lots of good examples of her quintessential sound, described by Grant Alden as “new made old, re-made new” and “lived and lived-in”. Very informative and interesting album insert! Faves: Disc 1:2,3,7, Disc 2: 2,3,4,5,6, **8
