Previously unreleased Elizabeth Cotten recordings on split 7" with Marisa Anderson

Portland, Oregon community radio station KBOO are releasing a 7" of a previously unreleased Elizabeth Cotten recording, made at the Euphoria Tavern in Portland in February 1975. Erin Yanke, the station's programme director says: "KBOO broadcast the show live, and the songs on this record are from that performance. We don't know the titles, as they were not announced, and are not released on any of her other recordings." The flip of the 7" is a recording by KBOO's first artist in residence, guitarist Marisa Anderson, and it is being produced in a run of 1000.
