Iron & Wine is excited to participate in RSD 2017 with this blue vinyl release of Archives Volume 3. This entry in the ongoing series jumps to the year 2009 and that fertile time between The Shepherd's Dog and Kiss Each Other Clean. Volumes 1 and 2 explored the home spun recordings from The Creek Drank the Cradle-era, while these two tracks have a fuller and richer sound of those two recordings. A Stranger Lays Besides Me" has been performed live a number of times and become a fan favorite. Miss Bottom of the Hill" has never been heard in either a live or recorded format.
