Nashville Sessions: Gillian Welch And David Rawlings

"It was always difficult for us to find the time to stop writing new songs and look at old songs," Welch says. The 20th anniversary of her debut gave them that opportunity this year.
Gillian Welch and David Rawlings got a rare chance to look back at their old music with the release of Boots No. 1: The Official Revival Bootleg, a double-disc album of material from the period when Welch was recording her 1996 debut, Revival. It's a fascinating document with demos, alternate versions and whole songs that they recorded but didn't include on that T-Bone Burnett-produced album.
