Fleet Foxes celebrate the 10th anniversary of their seminal debut album with this deluxe boxset containing all the material from their first six physical releases leading up to (and including) the Fleet Foxes LP and Sun Giant EP. Diehard fans have been waiting patiently for a chance to own some of these songs on wax, many of which were previously only available on CD or prohibitively expensive on vinyl. The highlight of the set are the band's early demos (retitled the Fleet Foxes EP), which were previously only available in an edition of 50 CD-Rs sold by the band at their shows in Seattle, including rare tracks like "She Got Dressed," "In The Hot Hot Rays," "Textbook Love" and more, now available on vinyl for the first time ever. The B-Sides & Rarities is also worth special mention as it contains all the tracks from their early 7" singles that didn't make it onto their debut album, including "Isles" (from the White Winter Hymnal 7"), "False Knight On The Road" (from the Mykonos 7") and "Silver Dagger" (from the Your Protector 7") plus unheard demos and rare Robin Pecknold solo recording "White Lace Regretfully." Includes a 32 page booklet with show flyers, lyrics and artwork from the band’s early years all housed in a deluxe hardcover box with code for digital download of the entire package.
