Elizabeth Cotten
Freight Train And Other North Carolina Folk Songs And Tunes

Awww Elizabeth Cotton. The first time I heard Freight Train, seriously, I thought it was my grandma singing. She has the exact same tone and intonation as my grandma's voice. Made me weep I can tell you. Cotton was one of the few female performers of country blues and her hesitant, emotional style was a unique counterpoint to the grizzled guys around at the time. Freight Train has become an all time classic. You need this.
