      Description hide

      This complete reissue of Elizabeth Cotten's first LP is best known for containing the original recording of her classic Freight Train. The breadth of her repertoire and endearing style have captivated generations of guitarists and fans of traditional American music. Freight Train includes guitar and banjo accompanied songs and tunes and features Mike Seeger's updated notes that include comments on cotten's life, musical style and song lyrics. Cotten's self-taught, upside-down, left-handed style made her one of the most original guitar and banjo players in the history of American folk music. Several of her deeply personal compositions, such as the immortal Freight Train and Oh Babe It Ain't No Lie, are included. "...[A] classic and belongs in every collection..." —Blues Review Quarterly
