LP (Item 611801) Folkways, 1958 — Condition: New Copy
(reissue)

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.

Some of the coolest music we've ever heard from underground legend Russell Hoke – rare material from the 80s, presented here for the first time ever – often done with these offbeat, experimental touches that feel a lot more like Jandek than the usual from Hoke!

Amazing stuff – the first album by Fred Neil, one of the 60s' most underrated singer/songwriters!

Burnin'
Vee Jay, 1962. New Copy (reissue)
Plenty of Burnin from John Lee Hooker, and about as classic as you can get for his Vee Jay years – especially considering that the album starts out with Hooker's killer cut "Boom Boom" – a number that may well have set fire to a whole generation of British and American rockers! ...
