HASH(0x9a92e420) étoiles sur 5 An American Treasure 30 décembre 2005
Par R. Cousineau - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
What can I say? Elizabeth Cotten was one of the best guitar players of all time and almost no one knows about her.I have enormous respect for all the great guitarists from all genres of modern music and to my ears no one comes close,except maybe Mississippi John Hurt, to her fluid and gentle approach to the guitar.Even the great John Fahey was in awe of her natural talent on their shared instrument.
And to think this was recorded in her bedroom instead of a studio gives this disc a refreshing sound,just like she was sitting on her bed and playing just for you.Great just to listen to and essential to anyone who is a fan of acoustic guitar playing at its finest.
Freight Train is not just a classic song but it sounds like it has always been here like the mountains and the sky.There are stories of the Grateful Dead whenever they were passing through the area she lived in always making it an essential stop to visit her to talk and play with this mostly unknown treasure.I love this disc and everything about it.Essential and highly recommended.

HASH(0x9a92e66c) étoiles sur 5 Freight Train and other songs 29 avril 2002
Par Alexander Howard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
When I first heard this CD I was astounded not just by the
technical ability of Libba Cotten, but also by the sheer
spiritual feeling she gives to the songs. She also plays really
gently, never overemphasising anything.

HASH(0x9a92e8ac) étoiles sur 5 Move Over John Hurt 26 février 2002
Par J. Christmas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
These phenomenal songs were recorded by Mike Seeger in Elizabeth Cotten's bedroom. Elizabeth Cotten had stopped playing guitar for over twenty years when the Seeger family "discovered" her (she was working as their maid!)
Cotten's completely "by ear" playing is among the most subtle and harmonically nuanced in "roots folk music". Strangely, she does not get anywhere near the attention of Mississipi John Hurt, though she is a far better and more interesting guitar player (this is not to knock John Hurt, who is also great.)
Cotten was able to pick up everything from blues, to ragtime, to the UNC "graduation march" just by listening. At risk of sounding cliched, I believe she was a genius who was never fully able to realize her potential. But at least we have these wonderful songs to give us a sense of it.

HASH(0x9a92ec0c) étoiles sur 5 Very Good Elizabeth Cotten Recording From 1958 2 avril 2014
Par Mark Anderson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Elizabeth Cotten is not a well known name these days, but she should be better known than she is. She has been cited as a musical influence by Bob Dylan, among others.

For those unfamiliar with Elizabeth Cotton, she was an influential performer among the acoustic folk and blues musicians of the 1950s and 60s folk music revival. She recorded several albums in that period, the best known of which were recorded for the Folkways label, now Smithsonian Folkways. These Folkways recordings include this one, recorded in 1958.

Most of these recordings are instrumentals featuring Cotten on guitar or banjo. She had a very interesting guitar style and that really comes across very well on these recordings. Guitar players should find these recordings very useful for that reason.

Other tracks have Elizabeth Cotton doing vocals as well. Unfortunately, Elizabeth Cotton was in her 60s when these recordings were made and her voice shows her age; her vocals are quite shaky in many places.

But her guitar playing is first rate throughout and this CD should be of interest to guitar players for that reason.

One note for Smithsonian Folkways though. This CD is 14 tracks with a total playing time of about 34 minutes; it's just the original vinyl version reissued on CD. A CD holds about 75 minutes of music; vinyl LPs only hold about 40 minutes of music. Surely Smithsonian Folkways has some good quality out takes or other Elizabeth Cotton material that could have been included to fill up the extra playing time on the CD. Elizabeth Cotton was a very influential guitar player and those of us who like her guitar playing, and want to hear more of it, would be very interested in having more of it. If Smithsonian Folkways has more Elizabeth Cotten recordings - and I'm sure it does - why not reissue this one with the remaining CD playing time filled up with extra, or bonus, tracks of Elizabeth Cotten's guitar and banjo playing.

I see from Amazon's listing that this CD was originally issued in 1992. There's no reason it couldn't be re-issued with bonus tracks on it to fill up the remaining CD playing time.

A simple but distinctive picking style. Great singing. Music imbued with the blues.
