We all need something to relax us in these terrifying times and in the absence of readily available heroin why not turn to this archival release by Craig Kupka.

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.
