What is the story with this one? The first press sold out very quickly and a second press was announced. However, this never made it over to Europe to my knowledge as I had it on order with my vinyl dealer? Even so, availability in the U.S.A. seems to have been very patchy with lots of people missing out again. I know it is available from Gillian’s website and is that how it’s going to be? Surely QRP could manufacture enough copies to satisfy the undoubted demand for this one, worldwide? 😩

So happy that this was widely available! Got it at my local record store. A favorite album already on CD and now with this on vinyl: wow! I only feel bad for my bank account as this has opened my ears to audiophile pressings.

Dear flippers: One can buy this direct from Gillian Welch's website for $29.99 right now. STOP IT.

Does anyone know how many records that were pressed the first round?

Really excellent press - lovely sound. Listening on Cambridge Audio amp and phono stage and B&W speakers both well suited to the sparse sound. Great songs - well worth the wait and far better than the previous rushed album. "Hard Times" is the anthem of our era. Would love a vinyl release of "Revelator" as well.

Think this release needs to be labelled as "first pressing" as the 2nd press is nearly upon us.

Do not buy from the flippers. The label is awaiting a second pressing of this. Check their site for updates. Last I read, the second pressing was two weeks out.

I'll agree with the other posts here, the overall sound quality of this LP is certainly among the best in my collection, even non GW fans will be able to appreciate the simplicity and overall quality of the sound from this LP.

Excellent sounding record. Here's an interview with Gillian about what she and Dave went through to get this pressed. And (spoiler alert) more of her albums will be coming to vinyl soon

Best sounding album in my collection! Stellar job by Gillian and David. *On a side note, is anyone experiencing a hiccup on " the way it goes" about half way through? Unfortunately I think i got a bad pressing. It pops for about four rotations then passes.
