4.80 26

Amazing sounds from Roscoe Holcomb – a set recorded in the mid 70s, but one with a timeless quality that belies Holcomb's deep roots in eastern Kentucky! All tunes feature just a bit of guitar or banjo, and Holcomb's incredible vocals – inflected with a life's worth of rich experience into a mode that's almost more blues than folk at points – a key illustration of the way the genres can blur across cultural lines, if you know where to look. Titles include "Motherless Children", "Train That Carried My Girl From Town", "Frankie & Johnny", "In London City", "Walk Around My Bedside", and "The Village Churchyard". (Super-heavy vinyl and cover – just like an original Folkways pressing!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Haunted Brain
Unheard-Of, 2014. New Copy
Wonderful musings from the haunted brain of Russell Hoke – a timeless album of indie, outsider material – sung and played by Hoke on guitar, banjo, and harmonica – with the same blend of folk and blues as in his 80s recordings! The songs are better-formed here, but still recorded ... LP, Vinyl record album
