The Harrow & The Harvest is a 2011 album released by American musician Gillian Welch. It was Welch's first album in eight years and was released on June 28, 2011. The album was nominated for Best Folk Album for the 54th Grammy Awards. The eight years since the release of 2003's Soul Journey marked the longest period of time between album releases for Welch

Gillian Welch and David Rawlings may, in fact, shock and appall folk purists with their fourth album, Soul Journey. The album's opener, "Look at Miss Ohio," evolves into her toughest rocker since "Pass You By" on her debut, Revival, and the whole album culminates in the relative cacophony of "Wrecking Ball," a drunked-up barroom stumble highlighted by Ketcham Secor's loping fiddle lines and Rawlings' fuzzed-out guitar solo

Gillians fourth album Soul Journey sounds Balder than ever. On some tracks is only Welch with her guitar to hear, other songs are included occupancy in a minimal band, with her soul mate and producer David Rawlings as the most important group. At these moments does the sound of Soul Journey reminiscent of the dry production of the solo songs by Neil Young, at the time of Harvest.

Soul Journey is the fourth studio album by Gillian Welch. As with all of her previous releases, it is a collaboration with David Rawlings. In their preceding work, Time (The Revelator), Welch and Rawlings had experimented with using only acoustic guitar and banjo as accompaniment. With Soul Journey, they return to the more diverse and modern instrumentation of their early work, employing electric guitar, organ, and drums. As with Welch's other works, a strong American roots influence can be heard. Fundamental to the practice is the idea that everything is energy, and moves in waves, patterns and rhythms. Roth describes the practice as a soul journey, and says that by moving the body, releasing the heart, and freeing the mind, one can connect to the essence of the soul, the source of inspiration in which an individual has unlimited possibility and potential.

Soul Journey is the fourth release from Nashville’s endearing stepdaughter Gillian Welch. Overall, Soul Journey delights. The pared down lyrics and arrangements on the album make for a clearer, fresher listen than Welch’s previous efforts. Instead of slowly enchanting you into a candlelit, tapestried brood, this collection invites you out to the front porch for a cup of coffee and a spin in the rocking chair. It is a very pleasant, listenable and frequently rewarding album. But let’s hope she doesn’t get too comfy in the old rocking chair.

No problems here. Wiped her down changed the sleeve sounds awesome!
Agreed. I held off on buying this for awhile given the comments but bit the bullet and found myself with a clean flat copy right out of the package. Listened to it this morning and plays superb after a light cleaning. I can't say enough about the sound quality of this pressing. Job well done. I wish all new LPs sounded this dynamic. Especially given the minimalist instrumentation, I am impressed. Sounds great turned up.
My first copy had two white specs causing skips. I returned it. Second copy is simply a poor pressing; excess rumble, rotational noise. Very very disappointed. Struggling with whether to subject my beloved local record store to yet another return. :(
Sorry that others have had issues with theirs but my vinyl is almost perfect apart from one or two very quiet minor clicks here and there.I wish all my vinyl sounded this good
Hate to leave a bad review of such a wonderfully mastered record (the music sounds phenomenal) but I've had two bad copies thus far. My first had skips on Miss Ohio and Lowlands. I received a replacement copy today and this had not one but two skips on Nobody Knows My Name, was pressed off-center, and had bad pops in multiple spots.
So here's why I think people are reporting debris -- like stuck white specs -- in the vinyl. It's the shitty sleeve they used. Even though this was pressed by QRP-- and they actually have a very good reputation amongst vinyl heads, they failed to use the high quality QRP sleeve-- which is identical to the MFSL sleeves. Instead the sleeve is a glossy coated stock that is known to scratch, scuff, and impregnate the vinyl with pieces of debris from the sleeve-- since some of this debris is coated it can scratch and it can easily get lodged in the grooves. I have this problem on side one track one-- in two places-- both making a very loud pop! This was after a thorough cleaning on my Hannl RCM-- twice. So next I had to use a magnifying glass to find the two places that had white debris still lodged in the grooves, put a drop of pure isopropyl alcohol on each one and gently, in the direction of the grooves, scrub that crud off with a Q-tip-- then re-clean and re-rinse the vinyl. I had to repeat this process twice. Now that track plays clean-- but what a PITA-- and all so that the label could save ten cents per record. I should have just returned it-- but that often only gets a worse copy when an LP is sleeved the way this one was. Hope this helps.
I spent my morning doing exactly the same thing! My problems were on the last two tracks on Side 1. I was able to dislodge the large piece of debris that was causing a major loud pop on track 5. I have lessened the effect of the noise earlier on the same track but the debris is so small it is quite difficult to see, but you sure can hear it. I seem to have removed most of it, though. Yes, you are right. They really went to town with a really nice presentation, a very good pressing but skimped on one very important matter, I.e. a nice inner sleeve. This, I understand, is usually an artist driven decision. I am sure QRP offered and recommended this option to Gillian’s people but it was probably declined? I think I will email her via her website about this. Artists are very talented and brilliant people in their own right but they are not usually clued into what is best for projects such as this.
Wonderful pressing with sound that makes you feel like you're in the room when it was recorded.
Has anybody good a noisy copy of this release? My copy has some repeat ticks on tracks 4 and 5 on Side One. There is also a nasty sounding loud pop on on track 5 that sounds like a deep scratch but the surface seems fine with no embedded particle. The record has been cleaned (wet and ultrasonically) so I think it must be a poor pressing?
I think if you've got 'non-fill', you should get a replacement. The white specks are bad enough but 'non-fill' is for life! Most copies seem to be very good though so it should be possible to get a good copy of this very worthwhile release. Good Luck!
Yes, mine is noisy as well. Some white debris that stuck in the grooves on both sides. Could be removed, but still crackles a bit. Mine has non-fill on the first track of side A also and is warped. Wonderful music but pressing is not to the same standard.
Yep-- see my post above-- it's cleanable and related to the sleeve they used.
Sorry to hear that! If it makes you feel any better I picked up the harrow and the harvest today and when I open the shrink and checked the record it was covered in small particles and a few large, white specks that you mentioned above. Same issue it seems like. I had to give it a good cleaning and all was good after that, at least on side A.
Actually, two now. I was the second one. On closer examination, with high powered eye glasses, I noticed 'debris' ('white specks') stuck in the grooves on the tracks in question. I think I removed the largest one but I won't be sure until I re-clean the record and play it again. I am not hugely optimistic though, I have to say. Trust my bad luck with new records! Everybody else is getting beautiful copies while I get a sub standard one. It is reassuring though to know that people have got really good copies.
I don't have that issue, so it must be a poor pressing I think?
A user on the Hoffman forms mentioned the exact same thing... unless that was you? I don't have my copy yet so I can't comment.
After the success of Time (The Revelator), Welch and Rawlings confidently take to the studio again with new artistic goals. Though I'm not altogether sure Welch's aspirations for a "happier record" have been attained, other themes such as creating tunes that "reflect change and growth" are inarguable forces which elevate the songwriting and musicality exhibited in Soul Journey to the standards one has come to expect from this outstanding duo. Purists may be taken aback by the number of instruments gracing select tracks wherein the overall musicality may initially be best described as a muddied southern rock sound (ex. Wrecking Ball). But listeners need only step outside the somewhat narrowed expectations molded by Welch and Rawlings' past efforts to appreciate this brave and marked evolution in their sound.There's no insta-love here. And while the album as a whole is not as accessible from the get-go as their previous works - a gradual appreciation and deeper accord (at the very least) is attainable with just a few listenings.Highlights include: Look At Miss Ohio, One Little Song, I Made A Lover's Prayer, Wrecking Ball
Singer Gillian Welch was already cherished by lovers of American roots music, before the general public discovered her as one of the artists on the unexpectedly successful soundtrack to O Brother Where Art Thou? (2000), between greats like Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss and Norman Blake. The music of Welch is more difficult than the above mentioned persons; It is a personal and unique blend of folk, country, blues and rock. Both her voice as the guidance of all frills stripped, making the music retains a certain purity. Gillians fourth album Soul Journey sounds Balder than ever. On some tracks is only Welch with her guitar to hear, other songs are included occupancy in a minimal band, with her soul mate and producer David Rawlings as the most important group. At these moments does the sound of Soul Journey reminiscent of the dry production of the solo songs by Neil Young, at the time of Harvest. Lovers know plenty.
