the lifeboat series is a set of cds released by sea records. it borrows very heavily from the archivist work of harry smith, alan lomax and others. essentially, the lifeboat series is a way of recording for posterity artists that might otherwise be lost. these are artists that may or may not play live, may or may not actually consider themselves musicians, may or may not exist in any meaningful form outside of someone’s imagination, bedroom and tape recorder.

each comes in a standard brown card sleeve with a hand-stamped image on them.

each image is unique to that recording.
