Iron & Wine is excited to ring in the new year with the release of Archive Series Volume No. 1. Pulled from tapes found in the back corners of closets and dusty shoe boxes, this is the first in a series of releases - songs long neglected, but never forgotten. With the Archive Series, Sam Beam (Iron & Wine) will be gathering otherwise unreleased home recordings, covers, and live sets from his entire career and releasing them on his own label, Black Cricket Recording Co.

The songs on Volume No. 1 came to life at the same time as those selected for The Creek Drank the Cradle. The songs on Creek were only 11 of the many performed and recorded by Iron & Wine at home on a 4-track cassette. While some of this material has been widely bootlegged, it has never received a widespread or proper release until now.

- LP are double LPs printed and include an MP3 download
