Album Info


Though this album was released in 1965, Kentucky singerbanjo man Holcomb plays tunes that reach back to-and sometimes even predate-the earliest days of country and folk. His rough-edged tenor is a master marksmans bullet tearing straight into the heart of old spirituals A Village Churchyard , traditional folk Darling Corey , and string-band tunes Free Little Bird . The High Lonesome. 17 tracks 52:28. The legendary Roscoe Holcomb performs 21 powerful songs shaped by the hard times and conflict between old and new that marked his life in the Kentucky mountains. A hard-hitting singer and banjo-player, he also performs unaccompanied ballads, banjo and harmonica solos, and with a guitar. These recordings from 1961, 1964, and 1974 were previously released on three different Folkways LP records and had a powerful influence on the folk music revival.

It's straight from the bone, with high, at times harsh vocals that make no concession to popular clichés to make things easier on the ear. That's one thing which makes the parallel to Dylan easy to see. The banjo playing is impressive, and the anthology is embellished by lengthy liner notes and recollections by John Cohen.

The performance on this record is fantastic and the recording is good for the time. The sides are around 28 minutes long which means the level is low and the tiniest surface flaw has an outsized effect on playback. I would prefer to have fewer songs and a more forgiving surface.
