More Info:

The original 1970 Together Records LP vinyl album "The Hillmen" has been released in various forms over the past decade or more. Recorded and produced in 1964 by Jim Dickson (Dillards, Byrds, Flying Burrito Bros., Gene Clark), Vern and Rex Gosdin, Don Parmley and a pre-Byrds Chris Hillman known as the Hillmen broke new ground or in this case, new grass, by recording not only original Gosdin songs but Bob Dylan as well. For the first time since it's original Together Records release, the original artwork has been restored including the reproduction of the original full color Together Records disc label. The album features all the original songs from that vinyl LP and additional tracks from the later compact disc release, but issued here for the first time utilizing the original 1970 Dave Hassinger (Byrds, Rolling Stones, Grateful Dead recording engineer) two track mixes. The Gosdins, 'With These Chains', missing on those subsequent vinyl and CD releases has now been restored and heard here for the first time on this compact disc. The other bonus track has never before released in any form, the instrumental, 'Salt Creek' for a total of 16 songs. Add to this is a large folded insert with song lyrics and many never before seen photographs of the band. As an added bonus, the actual CD disc has the look and feel of a black vinyl record, something not even found in other popular mini jacketed import CD releases. Replicated with black polycarbonate, the disc has cool vinyl look of a miniature record with grooves and an all-black top and bottom surface. With each original record labels faithfully reproduce, it plays like a regular, crisp, high quality CD on any regular CD player but the look of the disc resembling a 'vinyl' record from the past.
