Sturgill Simpson A Sailor's Guide to Earth Vinyl LP Crystal Clear Diamond Colour 2023
A Sailor's Guide To Earth is Sturgill Simpson's third full-length album and follows his break-through Grammy-nominated 2014 release 'Metamodern Sounds In Country Music'. Produced by Simpson, A Sailor's Guide To Earth was written - beginning to end - as a letter to his first child, who arrived during the summer of 2014 and features eight original songs as well as a rendition of Nirvana's In Bloom.
Recorded primarily at Nashville's 'The Butcher Shoppe', Simpson was joined in the studio by Grammy Award-winning engineer David Ferguson (Johnny Cash, John Prime, 'Cowboy' Jack Clement) and assistant engineer Sean Sullivan. Along with members of his touring band, the album features Dave Roe on bass, Dan Dugmore on steel guitar, Dougie Wilkinson on bagpipes, Garo Yellin and Arthur Cook on cello, Jonathan Dinklage and Whitney LaGrange on violin and special guests The Dap-Kings.
