I spent part of the holidays in my hometown of Huntsville, AL, and went record shopping at Vertical House where I stumbled on a copy of Leo Kottke’s Ice Water LP.
Released by Capitol Records in 1974, the album contains Kottke’s only charting single, Pamela Brown:
Pamela Brown was written by Nashville songwriter Tom T Hall:
I just recently discovered Kottke’s debut album, 6- and 12-String Guitar in my family’s record collection and have been listening to it a lot lately. When I found Ice Water last week I picked it up immediately. Here’s to hoping I find more of his albums on vinyl in the new year.
One last thing…a video from 1987 Prairie Home Companion with Kottke playing with Doc Watson:
