SAM13-CD
Release Date: December 4, 2015

Featured on the CD reissue: the album's original 13 tracks as well as 10 demos from the '05 recording sessions

Before Sam Amidon's acclaimed albums for Nonesuch Records and Bedroom Community, he'd released a few on his own. After a collection of traditional Irish instrumentals, Amidon (as samamidon) delivered his true “debut” But This Chicken Proved Falsehearted.

Recorded in 2005 with longtime collaborator Thomas Bartlett (Mumford & Sons, Sufjan Stevens, The National, David Byrne), Vermont-born Amidon re-imagines traditional songs alongside covers as diverse as Mississippi John Hurt to Tears For Fears, and rearranges them into his own unique and mesmerizing compositions. Unavailable for years, original copies now sell for top dollar on the collectors market. Nearly a decade later, But This Chicken Proved Falsehearted finally receives the reissue it deserves.

Falsehearted Chicken / True Born Sons Of Levi / Interlude / Head Over Heels / 1842 / Interlude #2 / Another Man Done Gone / Louis Collins / Interlude #3 / Roll On John / Rocky Island / Tribulation / Oh Where
$12.00
