Avett Brothers EP and Live at the Double Door Inn

I know Country Was was a CD-R that was self released and hand assembled by the band, which makes A Carolina Jubilee the first full length album that was pressed to disc. I am wondering about the other albums before Carolina, the self titled EP and Live at the Double Door Inn. Were these albums pressed to disc, or burned and hand assembled by the band as well? I assume either way the quantity was small. I believe this would be good information to include on those albums pages.

This is some information that I've been trying to investigate myself for a while. I'm getting help from other folks online, but since the band was so unknown in their early years a lot of the details have been lost. I do know The Avett Bros. and Live at the Double Door Inn have not been re-released since their original self-publishing. Country Was was re-released in 2009 as a digital album.

I have to imagine all three were burned and hand assembled, but I have no exact information. I keep looking on eBay to get my hands on a copy!

I have been checking ebay for these myself. Let me know if you do find out anything. I have tried asking on their facebook page as well. Even so, there must be someone who has these albums from which the cover scans came, who could answer this question for us easily.

Someone replied on reddit, filling in some missing info.

I'd also recommend you join the https://www.facebook.com/groups/theavettnation/ group — a lot of long-time fans on there!

I bought what the guy called an original copy of "Country was" off of ebay last year. I posted a picture of what I had on twitter and was told that it wasnt an original. The guy claimed he worked at a venue and the band gave it to him back in the day. I forgot what he said the year was. It is a good copy of it though.
