"A classic and belongs in every collection..." — Blues Review Quarterly
This reissue of Elizabeth Cotten's 1958 debut album, Folksongs and Instrumentals with Guitar 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.
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. Many of her deeply personal compositions, such as the immortal "Oh Babe It Ain't No Lie," are included.
