Elizabeth Cotten 'Freight Train And Other North Carolina Folk Songs and Tunes' LP
Pre-order. Due 1st March.containing the earliest recording of her classic “Freight Train.” The breadth
of her repertoire and her endearing style have captivated generations of guitarists and fans of traditional American music.
Cotten’s self-taught, upside-down, left-handed playing style on the guitar and
banjo made her a true original. Many of her deeply personal compositions,
such as the immortal “Oh Babe It Ain’t No Lie,” are included.
“[A] classic and belongs in every collection...” — Blues Review Quarterly.
This reissue is part of Smithsonian Folkways Vinyl Reissue Series and features
Mike Seeger’s updated notes with comments on Cotten’s life, musical style,
and song lyrics.
