Freight Train & Other North Carolina Folk Songs & Tunes (180 gram pressing)

LP (Item 611801) Folkways, 1958 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

5.00 26

Beautiful guitar work from Elizabeth Cotten – much more sensitive and lyrical than you might expect – with a warmth that really goes beyond the usual Folkways record of this nature! Elizabeth sings on the set at points – in this raspy, time-worn style that's pretty compelling on its own – but honestly, it's the guitar that really grabs us – played with deftness that's impressive, and a sense of greater sound that really shows some unique phrasing throughout. Titles include "Freight Train", "Run Run Mama Your Son Done Gone", "Spanish Flang Dang", "When I Get Home", "Vastopol", and "I Don't Love Nobody". (Super-heavy vinyl and cover – just like an original Folkways pressing!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Capitol/4 Men With Beards, 1966. New Copy (reissue)
Amazing stuff – the first album by Fred Neil, one of the 60s' most underrated singer/songwriters! The album is really one of the best places to start with Fred's work – as it's got a rough folksy quality that's really wonderful, and very much in the spirit of Tim Hardin, with whom we'd ...
