About this item

Two Delines albums in one month! Yes, this is the vinyl version of the strictly limited edition of the Delines Scenic Sessions CD that was sold on the September 2015 tour and is long deleted and sells for over £65 on ebay/discogs. Featuring novelist and songwriter Willy Vlautin with ex members of Richmond Fontaine, Sean Oldham and Freddy Trujillo. We are only pressing 1000 of these and that will be it.

The story behind this album:
Singer, Amy Boone was in Portland for our summer shows and the band wanted to cut a single to take with us on the fall tour. They already had written a full length album on its way after Colfax so it was going to just be 3 songs max. Willy kept bringing in new tunes to rehearsal so they could decide which ones to record. The band was loving most of them and producer John Askew had a little time open at his Scenic Burrows Studio. The single was starting to morph into an EP. Then they heard Amy's acoustic demo she recorded on her phone and had to do it. All of a sudden they had a bunch tunes on our single, this sort of rules out 45 rpm. LPs can handle it. They sold over 100 of these alone at the End of the Road Festival and before the end of their Sept tour it was sold out on cd. After 3 years of fans begging we decided it was time to get it on vinyl. Featuring the biggest hit single you never heard with Gold Dreaming.

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: Smooth, airy guitars and ambient textures are woven around the heartfelt vocals of Amy Boone. With Americana slide guitar and brush-hit percussion, this makes for an enchanting and beautiful outing for a band rapidly approaching the forefront of modern country.
