Without attempting to slight any other Appalachian or old-time artist, many critics have decided the solo recordings of Roscoe Holcomb produced in the '60s by John Cohen represent some kind of pinnacle for this genre. Every quality that is important in this music is represented here in the fullest dimension, by a man who sings like a philosopher while keeping a rhythm going on several stringed instruments that would make a metronome envious. And then there's his voice. Close To Home. Released 1975. Close To Home Tracklist. Train That Carried My Girl From Town Lyrics. Milk Cow Blues Lyrics. About Close To Home. Close To Home Q&A.

Both Directions At Once: The Lost Album. John Coltrane. 7 out of 5 stars 311. Close to Home is Beverley Craven's fourth studio album, her first in ten years. Craven abandoned her music career in 2000, a mixture of writer's block and the need to take care of her three young daughters. In 2004 she made a slow comeback, doing a handful of live appearances, but was shortly after diagnosed with breast cancer. After receiving treatment and given the all-clear, Craven decided to resume her music career. Recorded in Holcomb's home in eastern Kentucky, this album portrays the music of a master musician whose identification with his songs is intense, innate, and above all, honest. It's not for nothing that John Cohen, the man who recorded Close to Home, coined the phrase the high lonesome sound to describe Holcomb's voice. Close to Home, 1975. Now playing . Released: Jan 1975
