Here we have the old-time banjo and guitar player Roscoe Holcomb, captured live at the San Diego State Folk Festival in 1972. Holcomb’s fingers flow over the strings like liquid, and his keening voice tears out over the top. Genuine American folk music, reissued on the Tompkins Square label with informative liner notes.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 30th January 2016

Holcomb sings songs about the very hard life he has lived, religious chants, Appalachian ballads, and old-timey popular songs. He accompanies himself on 5-string banjo, guitar (using a jackknife), and occasionally plays harmonica. Holcomb's first two albums garnered much praise from Bob Dylan ("Roscoe Holcomb has a certain untamed sense of control, which makes him one of the best."), and Eric Clapton ("My favorite country musician.") This live set is a worthwhile and valuable addition to your shelf of traditional "American" music.
