Overview

Doc Watson is a brilliant guitarist and singer who knows his way around so much American music that his comfort with blues material should come as little surprise. Anyone needing further proof should turn to this entertaining collection, which assembles just a small proportion of the many blues and blues-related songs that Watson has recorded over the past five decades. Collected from Vanguard and Sugar Hill recordings that include Watson’s earliest albums under his own name, this set finds the roots music patriarch covering traditional tunes, Jimmie Rodgers and Delmore Brothers classics, and Deep South blues by the likes of Mississippi John Hurt. Watson’s gorgeous guitar, banjo, and harmonica work, as well as his always expressive vocalizing, turn each performance into a mini-masterwork. Although it makes no claim of representing Watson’s full range as an artist, this worthy collection is a fine starting place for anyone unfamiliar with the riches of Watson’s majestic art.
