Album Reviews:

Dirty Linen (p.41) - "Their flatpicking styles were inspirational and soothing. And there's not a bad choice on this album."

Album Notes

Personnel: Doc Watson (vocals, guitar); Herb Pedersen (vocals); Merle Watson (guitar, slide guitar, banjo); Norman Blake, Tony Rice (guitar); Mark O'Connor (fiddle); Tom Scott (clarinet); T. Michael Coleman (bass guitar); Ron Tutt (drums); Gene Estes (percussion).

Doc Watson's influence on country guitar playing is incalculable, and taken alone, his solo records are more than enough to call his career legendary. But by the 1970s, Watson was performing with his son Merle and this compilation captures the duo's high-water mark in the early '80s, shortly before Merle's tragically early death. The listener will find impeccably played roots tunes of all varieties embellished with very slight touches of contemporary rock & roll.
