Recorded in 1975 at his eastern Kentucky home, this is the last album Holcomb released before his death in 1981. a coal miner and farmer for much of his life, those struggles are reflected in his sparse, haunting recordings. Featuring only Holcomb on vocals, guitar, and banjo, Close to Home is a beautiful collection of folk-blues and old-time ballads including the epic "The Village Churchyard". Lovingly reissued on vinyl with an exact replica of the original Folkways jacket and booklet. Tracks: 1 Motherless Children 2 Mississippi Heavy Water Blues 3 the Train That Carried My Girl from Town 4 Milk Cow Blues 5 Frankie and Johnny 6 in London City 7 Roll on Buddy 8 Got No Honey Baby Now (Honey Babe Blues) 9 Darling Cory 10 the Village Churchyard 11 Walk Around My Bedside.
