Notes

Extremely rare handmade demonstration CD-Rs made by Justin Vernon and sent to labels after the recording of "For Emma". Music is essentially the same here except for "Team" which has an additional 44 seconds or so of acoustic guitar playing tacked on to the end of it that does not appear on the album version. This also appears to be before a final master so the audio is a little bit different.

The handwritten "cover" is as pictured here. This is not printed. Each one of these was done by Justin in pen. There is also a brief "bio" insert as well that explains the recording and the purpose of these CDR's sent to various labels.

Recorded in the hunting cabin, Northwestern Wisconsin, November, December, January 2006, 2007. Some small amount of additional recording done on Fairall, Raleigh, North Carolina. Mastered at Track and Field in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
