It is hard to be objective since I'm writing this review a few days after Doc's passing. This collection focuses on his country blues side. His voice and guitar and Merle's picking anchor the music. They had the gift of making their recordings sound as if they were sitting on the porch playing with some friends, and you felt as if you were there. Their Flying Fish albums were some of their best. The rest of them can be found on Black Mountain Rag. Roots music owes a huge debt to both Doc and Merle for keeping musicians like the Carter Family alive by bringing their songs to new listeners.
