Folksongs and Instrumentals with Guitar – Elizabeth Cotten

Artist: Elizabeth Cotten

Year1958

Genre: Folk

Grade: B+

I prefer the instrumentals, if only because Elizabeth Cotten was 65-years-old when this lo-fi LP was recorded. Her voice just ain’t that great. But her guitar…it’s fantastic and totally unique. No wonder The Beatles (as The Quarrymen) covered “Freight Train.”
