Gillian Welch is set to release Boots No 1: The Official Revival Bootleg on November 25.

Boots No 1 celebrates the 20th anniversary of Welch’s Revival album and has been curated and produced by Gillian Welch and David Rawlings – alongside archivist Glen Chausse – mining selections from their extensive vault of analog tape recordings.

The two-disc set will feature 8 previously unreleased songs, and include 21 outtakes, alternate versions, and demos from the making of the album. Among them, you’ll find the earliest home demo of “Orphan Girl” and the rarity “Georgia Road” – a song that was only performed live once.


Ahead of the release of Boots, we’re delighted to carry a UK exclusive stream of the full album – which you can hear below.

The album will be available on CD and digitally and is available for pre order from Amazon by clicking here and from iTunes by clicking here.
