Elizabeth Cotten's Freight Train



I guess lp's are the theme of the day so here is one of the greatest records ever. She learned to play guitar upside down and left handed when she was a little girl but she didn't cut her first record until she was a grandmother. She kept touring and recording into her 80's. You can always get the CD on Folkways and maybe once or twice a month the record comes up on ebay; here's one with 5 days left: LP
