Great Big Boy is an album by American guitarist Leo Kottke, released in 1991. Kottke's fifth album on the Private Music label, Great Big Boy is unique in the later Kottke canon in that every song includes a vocal part. The disc consists of nine Kottke originals and a cover version of Johnny Cash's "I Still Miss Someone". Complementing the often-oblique song lyrics is a strange short story included in the liner notes. Margo Timmins' vocals were recorded by Peter Moore at MDI Productions, Toronto, Canada.
Big Boy' describes youthful reflections on being in the rat trap and is full of Kottke's sardonic wit and irony. Driver' relates a strange tale of the terrible fate of bus passengers - and employs an utterly stunning guitar arrangement. Last track is his cover of & Still Miss Someone' by Johnny and Roy Cash - effortlessly superior in every respect to Cash's version. IMO, one song like that on an album can be a jewel. More than one is pretentious. If you want a few Kottke instrumentals snuck in between songs featuring Leo's pleasant baritone, I recommend 1983's Time Step.
Leo Kottke (born September 11, 1945) is an acoustic guitarist. He is known for a fingerpicking style that draws on blues, jazz, and folk music, and for syncopated, polyphonic melodies. He overcame a series of personal obstacles, including partial loss of hearing and a nearly career-ending bout with tendon damage in his right hand, to emerge as a widely recognized master of his instrument. Kottke released an album annually from 1989 to 1991: My Father's Face, followed by That's What and then Great Big Boy, which featured guest appearances by Lyle Lovett and Margo Timmins. Two years later, he returned with Peculiaroso, produced by Rickie Lee Jones. The solo album One Guitar, No Vocals was released in 1999.
