All great musicians should have as fine a memorial as this CD is for Merle Watson. Really, the only major flaw I can find is that, at 56 minutes, it isn't longer. Merle is featured alone with Doc and in various group settings where his talents shine. His death was not only a tragedy for Doc, but 20 years on, the whole traditional American music world.
