Richard Dawson The Glass Trunk Limited Vinyl 2LP Set + Download

Overview:
· Originally released in 2013, ‘The Glass Trunk’ was triggered by a commission to respond to the local museum service’s archives. Dawson created an album largely from stories found in an old 17th Century scrapbook, including a lengthy paean to the sorry demise of community pillar Joe The Quilt-Maker and the much-loved yet equally, viscerally dark ‘Poor Old Horse’.
· Six acapella odes of between 4 and 13 minutes in length, plus a rendering of Mike Waterson’s ‘The Brisk Lad’, interspersed with a series of brief instrumental vignettes, Dawson’s guitar sparring with the electric harp of Rhodri Davies for strictly spontaneous 60-second blasts.
· This album paved the way for its successor, ‘Nothing
Important’, that saw features on Richard from The Wire (cover feature), Mojo, Uncut, The Guardian, The Quietus and more, as well as several 5 star live reviews from The Guardian.
· All vinyl formats include digital download codes.
