announced by Tompkins Square, available from
the usual purveyors.
Best wishes, Thomas.

Tompkins Square is proud to announce the release of the first commercially available full live concert recording of old-time legend Roscoe Holcomb.
Now Available on LP, CD & via every digital service, worldwide. The vinyl LP was released on Black Friday and can be found at your local independent record store.
Discovered by folklorist John Cohen in 1959 in East Kentucky, Roscoe Holcomb is among the most revered traditional musicians to emerge during the folk boom of the 60's. A favorite of Bob Dylan (who name-checked him in his 2014 MusiCares speech), Eric Clapton, and many others, Holcomb's high lonesome singing and driving banjo style can be heard on several classic Folkways recordings.
San Diego Folk Festival 1972 was recorded at the annual event produced by Lou Curtiss, who provides insightful notes on how the concert came together. John Cohen, author of 'The High Lonesome Sound' (Steidl) also contributes new notes to the set. Previously unseen photographs from the event were shot by Virginia Curtiss. Jean Ritchie duets with Holcomb on a beautiful eight-minute version of 'Wandering Boy'.
CD : TSQ 5210 / LP : TSQ 5227

Got to see him in NYC when Izzy Young produced a show. What a performer!
